"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

For those unfamiliar with one of Google's hottest communities (outside of Blogger that is), Orkut is a forum where users from virtually every nation (except North Korea of coarse) can interact with one another.
Upon visiting the site, a user may notice the many communities that exist, with many of them focusing on politics and religion (and those opposed to the latter). Here is a quick glance at some of the conversations that go on in one of Google's hidden communities.
Apparently Tim has had his fill with the left party and has left the left (Editor's note: rhymes, doesn't it?) and is probably wondering why anyone would stay within that party. Perhaps he should visit Alpha Patriot for some affirmation.
"N," as the user goes by, expresses their viewpoint that Allah is a sadist God. Apparently N has started a frenzy in the Why Theist community.
In the Atheist vs. Theist forum, Adolf Krebs proposes some evidence that apparently leaves no doubt for evolution while mocking Intelligent Designers. Ironically he is rebuttled by an atheist.
Jeff in the American Politics forum seems to be angry about American soldiers killing journalists, although other people within the community are revealing what are trying to enlighten him by showing that he is indeed a moonbat.
Last but not least, it seems that Americans have their own forum now, which is a good thing considering that Brazilians practically own most of Orkut (especially since Orkut seems to be catered towards the US).
Orkut is a community of trusted friends (often mixed with strangers) and like Gmail an invite is required in order to become a member.
