Basically all you've said is you don't like the name for reasons of your own imagination (by inference of things not implied and explicitly contrary to stated objectives). You have no objection to any substantive content.

>>> implies there is a superior, "more atheist" faction

This is just a flat out misrepresentation -- the Plus refers to a specific set of ADDITIONAL positions.

ADDITIONAL provisions that, as I showed in my previous post, almost every other atheist, freethinker, and skeptic groups ALSO have.

Now, all of a sudden, a certain subset of people object to holding any position but deity disbelief -- I call bullshit.

So really you are just purposefully misrepresenting it because you want to argue against it. That's what I have a problem with, So my question is Why?

>>> I see it as an over complication and waste of precious debate time, a dilution of the discussion

Again -- ACA, Freethought UK, skeptics... all evidence that this objection is just an ad hoc justification.

>>> much like we have had since someone claimed to have seen a mysterious man in an elevator

Ah, now we get to the real meat of your irrationality.
