    Dear Knight,

    I just had someone report me because I trying to summon support of Christians to help me in my case in the "Only a Fool Believes in Evolution" thread. Not only that, but several of the people in that thread are calling my ideas stupid, and that my behavior as Christian is offensive and intolerable primarily because it flies in the face of their beliefs in Evolution. I would much appreciate if you put these people on notice ASAP, thanks.

      This is a rough place. TOL is a lot like preaching on the street, you need to be prepared to get your face spat on.

      Don't let it bother you, use it against them as a weapon (Romans 12:20).

      2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

      If by chance folks start using foul language or breaking other actual TOL rules let me know and I will take a look at it.

        OK, thanks, I wont let their behavior get me down. I have plenty of support from Christians in this forum, besides this type condemnation is common in all manifestations of society, but people usually just ignore it anyway.

        Jesus says, "If someone slaps you on one cheek, let him slap the other cheek also," sounds like good advice to me.

          You reported yourself genius.
          Then I reported you for reporting yourself.
          If you had a subscription then you could see who reported you.
          It's only three dollars a month, you get a bigger PM box and a free golf cart when you play at the TOL golf course.

There are many dissenting voices on TOL who have been debating us and fellowshipping with us for years, but those voices understand whose house party they are at and are respectful of that.

                I think that with the outcry over certain member's actions lately, it's interesting to note these words from Knight in the OP.

                "Break these rules and you will likely be banned."

                That means that it's ultimately up to Knight.

                    Not to be a pain but "Thou shall" is grammatically incorrect.

                      For some of you who have read my lengthy posts:

                      I know that some of my posts are rather lingthy. Am I creating posts that are too long? Do I need to modify how I post these things?

                          I don't think so.
                          Only a small amount of your posts are long to establish a foundation, but your followup posts are not long.

                          They already know monsters exist.

                            I have a question about the eighth command.... what do you mean by redirect? Is it acceptable to tell a member about another site you visit?

                            I'm new and curious, I don't want to break any, so I thought it best to ask.

                              That would be spam. I don't even link people to other forums I frequent.

                                I would say that you could speak about being on another site, and what went on there with you, without specifying what site it was.

                                Linking to other sites is just bad manners. It makes it appear you are drumming up business for another site.

                                And if anyone is interested in what site you are talking about, they can PM you to get the link if they want it.
