What we enjoy here is a relatively closed community. We all have been here so long, that we end up "getting" where the others are coming from just from repetition, if nothing else. This is also good, because we don't have to re-state our "credo" or tenets every time we want to remark on something.
Yes, I'm one among many, but even the hard-core atheists here have learned not to lump me in with the creationists here and I have even had many a discussion with other Christians here and I have certain views that simply are not part of the majority. And I'm certainly not alone in this regard. Everyone has their own set of beliefs, or non-beliefs, that separate them from the "herd".
So yeah, I'm one among many, but I'm also my own person. This is my point. Atheists all want their own distinction for what they believe, and they complain when theists lump them together, yet a lot of them lump all theists together, but even lumping all Christians, to be specific, together is a mistake.
