    4. Thou SHALL NOT call other TOL members names without cause. Appropriately identifying the wicked is not only allowed but encouraged. Again, TOL is a right-wing Christian forum and therefore our bias is not hidden.

    "All of the above commandments are subjective in nature and will be determined on a case by case basis by the TOL staff."

    Infractions are handed out if the name calling is without cause.

    Cool, when did Walt Brown join TOL?

    Christ wasn't exactly a fan of hypocrisy, but on this scale it is quite funny.

    Hey, it's the way it is on TOL. If you want a level playing field there's always debate club. I'm not offended; it's part of the atmosphere here.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    And yet the slope has certainly increased. Knight's slope provided for free speech to a very large degree, and therefore invited and welcomed those of differing beliefs, perhaps treating them harshly at times but allowing them to fight back, not tying their hands behind their backs as they are struck. Not so anymore.

    If people don't like being hit without being allowed to strike back, being abused without being allowed to defend themselves or retaliate, or dealing with hypocritical moderation, they will leave. TOL is inevitably becoming less lively. The irony--and most unfortunate problem--is that it is "Christians" who are taking back with their left hand what they have given with their right. If you are a non-Christian who has survived on TOL, then chances are you already know how to turn the other cheek more than the Christians.

    I am all in favor of a more civil environment, but strongly against a half-civil hypocritical environment. So the working model for TOL is changing: debate and lively discussion will slowly begin to dry up as this becomes another strongly-biased forum of like-minded people reinforcing what they already believe; a technologically advanced bridge club, not a theological or political forum.

    It's happened before. And eventually, Knight steps in and re-establishes some equilibrium. This too shall pass.

    I think Inzl Kett is doing a great job and you should quit your whining.

    I suppose it goes without saying that I disagree. The rest will have to read what I wrote and what you wrote and consider which one makes the most sense.
