    Knock it off.

    Sherman has told you it won't be sold to you or yours. No amount of legal posturing is going to change that.

    Oh, okay, take it up with management then.



    One thing I've never done is stalk other posters and I'm not real interested in the inevitable garbage that would ensue with you so back on ignore you go for both our sakes.

    Certain trouble makers are getting close to wearing out their welcome.

    ok doser stop it. This is a form of trolling.

    Something you do need to address is the fact this site is designated as "not secure" in the toolbar and that any information used or given on this site may jeapordise the user.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    I can’t understand why the word prayer/prayerfully consider suggestions. It surely is not a monetary problem. As far as the name calling goes, require threads and discussions, contents to give Bible references to support them. If one cannot find a scripture that supports the name calling, then it has no business on TOL. Resp. Fred Eans

    Name calling is just a no go. I would rather see members address the subject matter rather making personal attacks on the members making the posts.

    ​Try messaging the site owner about this. I don't have the ability as a mod to fix this.

    Pretty sure Knight addressed this already...

    I believe the reason TOL doesn't use https is that the chatbox won't work, among other things...

    I don't remember if it was a thread he said that in, or if it was just in the chatbox itself...

    There shouldn't be any reason that the entire site couldn't be switched to HTTPS

    I didn't read all the pages of this thread, just the last half dozen or so, so I don't know if anyone else has brought up my thoughts. If someone has I guess you'll just have to read the same ideas all over again....

    It seems to me most people are ignoring the obvious. Just about everything on earth has a life cycle, and it appears to me that tol is reaching its end of life moment. I've watched a lot of forums go under. Some were technical, others were similar to tol in scope. I used to post on a forum that had hundreds of people posting every day. Now? The site has maybe a half dozen regular posters and even some of them don't post on a daily basis. Things like forums, the same as we humans, just run their course and then die. It's the reality of life on planet earth.

    Owners that create a good site often lose interest after a decade or so of seeing the same old arguments rehashed thousands of times. And when they lose interest the site goes downhill for they do not spend the time necessary to keep a site up to date and relevant with energetic leadership. Knight did that years ago. Now he doesn't. I've also seen situations where ownership changed and the new owner destroyed the site in a matter of a month or two. The site had a couple of hundred daily posters and within days of the ownership change he was already alienating the vast majority of his user base. Sometimes changing ownership is the worst possible thing to do. But if the current ownership is burnt out and no longer interested then that chance must be taken for a disinterested owner will kill a site just as surely as an owner who has no idea as to what he's doing.
