you wonder why the moderators allow you to moan and whine about what Stripe does?

That's why I don't bother with Stripe threads.

Interesting. I guess I'll keep an eye out for this Stripe person

He is a lifetime member so he could have deleted the thread.

True. I keep telling myself that, and then get upset over yet another one of that Equus africanus asinus 's arrogant droppings.

I'll try harder.

Stripe's habit of walking away from challenges or posting juvenile responses, instead of arguing his point, tells you all you need to know about his depth of understanding.

He uses the Bible as a shield, to protect his preconceptions and misunderstandings, instead of as a source of inspiration.

I think he's the first person I put on my ignore list. It's a beautiful thing.

I hope that TracerBullet isn't gone too long. I miss being called a "liar!" in every post that he so eloquently writes in my WHMBR! Part 4 thread.

Hey Stripe, if you reading this: you can silence your opposition with the Truth instead of having them silenced via a ban.

He also spams and trolls threads - he was recently reported here (http://www.theologyonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112892) (spamming my thread) and here (http://www.theologyonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112913) (announcing I was gay). - This record of behavior, and towards my self for many years here appears to be the general trend. Why? :idunno:

I recommend steering a path towards sanity.

It is featured benefit of a paid subscriber's level. Hence it is allowed per the terms of said subscription. So what is your real point versus taking the moderators to task about a feature allowed for payment rendered? :AMR:

My apology for the call-out thread. I wasn't aware that the moderators frowned on such things.

The forum would be better off if that feature (being able to close a thread at will) wasn't allowed for anybody, but that is certainly not my call.

Because he adds the grit to the flour? The colour that makes this forum more than a self congratulatory love-in?

Yeah, if chair made an honest mistake (and it seems he did) and apologized that should do. Ah well.

It's better to think of Stripe as TOL's own Salacious Crumb, and to leave it at that.

Being able to close a thread when it has run its course or is overrun with drive-by posters derailing the thread I may have started is a very nice feature worth paying for. That said, I have started less than 40 threads in my entire tenure here. Now some folks around here that "make a living" at starting threads should consider signing up for a gold subscription at least. ;)

BTW, Lifetime members can even delete threads they have started; a benefit I felt worth the cost given some of the uncharitable or infelicitous things I have posted in the past that I wanted to never see the light of day again.

There is some merit in both perspectives here. After all, there is some reason to be perturbed if you've posted charitable, edifying and felicitous content that has been deleted along with the rest of a thread.

Good point. I think I may start posting a disclaimer in any future meaty thread I may start noting that the thread is subject to being closed and/or deleted. ;)

I regularly advise folks to create their masterpieces offline in a word processor before posting, too. That way they have a record of their waxing eloquence for the future.
