I am sad. I stated objection to an article. 

Banned. No warning. No reason given. I can only assume someone didn't like my tone. I called no one names. I used no profanity. 

Are you that suspicious here? That protective? That insecure?I'm sure that is NOT the case but someone sure is touchy.

Banned here? Or elsewhere? Clearly you were not banned outright on this site, because here you are. 

 

Here in the den I'm sure you'll find that whatever material you might wish to post will be allowed. By it certainly won't be exempt from criticism. Enter at your own risk.

 

Want to play?

People dont usually get banned here. Maybe advised to post in some other subforum. Like this one. But anyway, what is the gist of the article and what is your thought about it?

 

Do you feel that God is real and want to tell us why? Or give us evidence? That's often what things boil down to here in the Lion's Den subforum.

If you were banned then you couldn't be posting right now. I'm not aware of your article. But if you post anything that goes against the rules and guidelines you may find it moved, deleted or any other such warning issued at the top of every subforum. We ask that proselytizing posts and / or information be confined to our debate areas, which, is where you currently are. If you didn't mean to post here, then you've been moved here to the Lion's Den per our posted rules and guidelines. 

 

You're now free to carry on with your article or whatever you'd like to try and discuss or debate here in the Lion's Den.

Which one - provide link?

That doesn't happen here - you have to be continually and for an extended period of time breaking the rules and posting in an egregious manner to get banned.

You are sure its not the case... but someone is touchy? So it is the case?? Hmmm

 

Ok whatever the subject was hit us with your best shot.

 

(PS I'm guessing it's a forum glitch as you are the second person to come through, make a post, but apparently your post count is zero. @webmdave is the system having issues with new members?)

This person is talking about behaving as a troll on an old post on the main blog.

 

He has only one post in the forum... This one.

 

Unsure about an answer to the post count question. Investigating the issue.

it just surprised me that simply commenting on, or disagreeing with a post, no matter how old the post, constitutes being a "troll" and will get a person banned.

Ought a person submit to you directly the content of a post and leave it to your discretion whether or not to make it public? That would resolve the issue, right?

I dont really know how things operate on the main blog. I just play on the forums here.

 

Please tell us what idea you were disagreeing with and we'll all jump in and have some fun.

( Cheap seque) Speaking of intolerance:

 

https://sojo.net/articles/american-christianity-has-become-institution-intolerance

 

snipped from article:

 

Meanwhile, they’ll (Christians) join their congregations and worship a God they claim has lavished unwarranted grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love upon them. Singing lyrics like “I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away, Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God…”

These same worshippers regarding immigrants, refugees, and foreigners: “they didn’t earn it, they don’t deserve it.”

Based on your behavior on this thread so far, I'm starting to form the opinion that the description of "troll" might have some merit to it.

For example, what "behavior"?

Noting that florduh need not have responded as he did? Why am I sensing hostility already? Why not be concerned about that after one simple post?

You were clearly trolling, and you were rude. When you post comments on someone else's blog,  you have to play by their rules. Just how it is. Here in the Den, the rules are fairly permissive. If you want to state your objections clearly, I'm sure we could muster up some responses.

"Clearly trolling..."

So ANY comnent made on an open article is "clearly trolling"?

 

I read the article; ALL of it and noted something. Big deal. Is that all it takes here? Like I said, that's pretty touchy.  

 

The solution? DISCONTINUE COMMENTS on archived articles.

No, not any comment. In this case,  mainly just yours.

You called the article "grossly unfair", called the author ignorant, and implied that the readers were equally ignorant. If you noted anything specific, I've missed it.  Feel free to draw it to my attention. Otherwise, this is clearly just trolling, and calling it such is not being touchy. It's being accurate.

Let it go my friend, because.

 

If you can't forgive your enemies today, Jesus will throw you into a blazing hot oven, and that's where you'll stay till the end of day's.
