Well, I sure wasn't talking about this one:

I understand that some people view their religious inclinations so natural that they incorporate religious statements in their every day communication. But, I know that people would be upset by somebody starting each and every post with their atheist "belief", such as
God is as real as Santa Claus
or even facts, like
Atheism correlates highly with IQ at levels above 2 SD
And, I fail to see how such promotions of metaphysical ideas have a place in this Boost list. But, perhaps promotion of Christian ideas in every single post is a proper omission from such a rule?
So, unless you are eager to see other people's metaphysical manifestations in every post, please stop that silliness.
