Well, I've been watching this, and we're really bordering on discussing moderation issues publically, which probably needs to change direction real quickly.
I don't know, but often we don't feel someone else's comments are out of line if they suit our own view. Simply expressing a view, either way, is not out of line. Telling someone, basically, to keep their mouth shut, is another issue. What one person sees in a topic, may be just the opposite the other sees/understands, but then it goes right back the other direction too - while both
are trying to get their understanding out of the same scriptures. I believe since we're all human, we're veiled to varying degrees, have different understandings and abilities, etc. That's why we encourage discussion
rather than outright debate or arguing, i.e., "you're wrong and I'm right, so be quiet about it". Because if that goes on ad infinitum, one person may think they've won - but in the process, what's happened is, the community/forum has lost.
I commend you micah on your PM, good job. This thread isn't about Molly, but since there keep being comments, I'm going to say this. I'm not saying that anyone
in that most recent discussion said everything perfectly. However, a particular participant involved had been a member for 6-8 years. Also that member had come to the understanding of The Victorious Gospel of Jesus Christ during those years of participation on the forum (the focus
of the forum) - and that not until having been on the forum for several years, in fact, only about 3 years ago. However, following that thread, that member has pretty much left the forum. Over-all, who won?
