  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving.

Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    GXG,

    Shimshon has stated nothing wrong. He is entitled to his opinion and his convictions. If you do not like it than please keep your comments to yourself. So far the thread was going well. And this was my thread that I had started because I had a question.

    Now I have two choices. I can accept the answers or reject them.

    Also no one will be reported because nothing was going astray. We all shared our thoughts. And we need to respect each others thoughts, just like you would want us to respect your thoughts.

    Moriah,

    Respectfully, I have not said that Shimshon said anything wrong in statement - as what was noted directly was that the comments made against him (i.e. claiming he had a twisted view of God's Word, claiming he wanted to make the forum dispensational, etc.) were needless since they came off as attacks....and were not necessary. This has happened consistently in differing threads - and as suggested by leadership, sometimes it's best to not respond to it when it does occur. That's why it was noted that one can choose to ignore it....or, if it persists in an increasingly negative manner, remember that they have freedom to report it. No one is to be attacked in any manner or given false labels per the rules (as it concerns flamming) - and after it has been asked to cease, if it continues, it is to be brought up.

    I already noted where I agreed with Shimshon's opinion/convictions and appreciate him - and if you do not understand something or something comes off the wrong way, that is not an issue to bring up graciously. Nonetheless, it'd be best to please not respond to ideas which were never advocated as that is not necessary.

    No one said anything counter to that - so again, I do not see the need to bring it up since I enjoyed the thread and have followed it. Again, it seems you may be responding to things which are not really being said.
    Respect does not - and will NEVER entail flamming - and Shimshon has noted this before, as it concerns comments he was responding to when it comes to insinuating personal discussion of posters/accusations. He can confirm this rather quickly as well.

    GXG,

    Thank you for clarifying the issue at hand. I guess I was having a woman moment. All is good.
