As we are all a bunch of loving folk here, we probably have an easier time saying who is not welcome.
If you are Atheist, Agnostic or are dead against the idea that Jesus will save ALL mankind, tell us so in your welcome thread, for Theists, tell us your faith too, helps us understand where you are coming from.
You are still welcome to post on this forum but your challenges/arguments must
be restricted to the appropriate boards. All boards are visible to members.
For Theists that do not believe in Ultimate Reconciliation (UR), stick around, there is still much we can agree on and discuss. Iron sharpens iron so it is good to have opposing views provided you conform to the rules
of this Forum. You will find us tolerant to your views so long as you do not feel it is your destiny/calling to convert/save us from your eternal hell or accuse us of leading others astray. We would recommend you do a little research on the main page
and try and learn what makes us tick. There are a hell
of a lot of articles on the main page. Click here

2 A Troll is someone who intentionally posts messages about sensitive topics constructed to cause controversy in an online community such as an online discussion forum. They may also plant images and data on networks that others may find disturbing in order to cause confrontation.
More specifically a troll is an insult or accusation made against a poster. It would be highly unusual for any Internet poster to claim the title of troll, rather a community member may try to deflate a post that is controversial or thought provoking by referring to it as a "troll". In usage troll is more of an insult like "jerk".
To call someone a troll is to say that any dispute over a post is not valid not because the issues raised are not valid, but to claim the intent of the poster invalidates the post. As a speech act the term troll is generally used as an ad hominem argument, attacking the poster rather than the content or issues of the post.
3Flaming is the hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users. Flaming usually occurs in the social context of a discussion board on the Internet. An Internet user typically generates a flame response to other posts or users posting on a site, and is usually not constructive, does not clarify a discussion, and does not persuade others. Sometimes, flamers attempt to assert their authority, or establish a position of superiority over other users. Other times, a flamer is simply an individual who believes he or she carries the only valid opinion. This leads him or her to personally attack those who disagree. Occasionally, flamers wish to upset and offend other members of the forum, in which case they are trolls. Most often however, flames are angry or insulting messages transmitted by people who have strong feelings about a subject.
4On the Internet, baiting is similar to trolling, in that baiters, like trolls, try to elicit a response from other users. The difference is that the response is supposed to be embarrassing to the user in question, and humorous to others. Baiters frequently concentrate on groups they do not like, such as pedophiles, fraudsters (often 419 fraudsters), religious fundamentalists, or homosexuals. What the baiter says does not need to make sense, it is often simply written to baffle the bait, and to produce an interesting result. In that respect, baiting is similar to telephone prank calls, but often much more elaborate. In the United States, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 makes some prank calls a felony with penalties of up to two years in prison, and possible fines (depending on severity). However, such penalties are rarely carried out.
