Anyway, Jesus said to shake the dust from your feet, didn't He? Perhaps from your fingers would be more appropriate when you're dealing with an online forum. Jesus said that if they didn't believe Moses and the prophets, then they wouldn't be convinced by signs and wonders regarding this truth. He also said that if they've continued in His Words, then they'll continue in yours as well. So, cast the care of it on the Lord and absolutely refuse to give it another thought until God either opens that door between you and them, or 'til the Lord brings it up at the resurrection.
Lots of folks that I'm genuinely called to have in my life and to work with would be utterly stunned at the fact that I genuinely and sincerely haven't given them another thought since I [and especially my Words] was rejected. One of them, it's a little more difficult to do that with and God has to deal with me about letting go on nearly a daily basis. But really, He shouldn't have to. Casting all of the pressures on God and giving Him every thought of it, while refusing it to your own imagination [and just continuing to do everything else that He tells you to do in the meantime] opens the door to the Holy Spirit to rush in there and to do what needs to be done. Otherwise, His work in their lives is a trickle while you're still carrying it and not letting it be on His Cross instead of yours.
