  1. Whether or not you read the rules at the atheist forum shouldn't really have any effect on how the moderators enforce their rules ... They tell Christians nobody will be immediately banned and then you get banned within five minutes. It's all very puzzling. By the way you forgot to post a link to that thread where you were banned. I was looking forward to reading it.

    Are you talking to me? I thought I was going pretty well...
  2. Not just you :) I was talking to the people who are posting links about a website. If you want to discuss it, feel free to PM someone. But the rules of the forum is that we can't bash other websites in open forum. Hope you understand.

    If it's still going to be discussed, we will probably have to close the thread :(. And we don't want to do that!
  3. Apologies to Heavy-J. My discussion with Graham has taken your welcome thread way off topic, but things move quickly on Internet forums and "hijacks" like this occur from time to time. Bear with me as I make this one last comment on your thread (and thanks for your patience).

    I accept that your post was not directed at "just me", but...

    I didn't think I was bashing another website. I chose my words very carefully and in doing so perhaps made my point more subtly than I should have. To be precise, I was expressing doubt that the other forum would ban a Christian within five minutes of the Christian's arrival, and I quoted rules from that forum which suggested that this would not happen. My attitude towards that forum was in fact very positive - and nothing I said should be construed as "bashing". If you would prefer that I drop the subject then tell me so in your next post and I will never mention it again.

    @ Graham:
    A link to your thread at the other forumwould be appreciated - or just it's title if you can't find a link. Thanks.

    Perhaps you could start another thread on this forum and tell us about your experiences (without "bashing" of course).

    Edit (fours later)
    I found your thread:

    This thread has been well discussed. Everyone has stated their views and no one is changing their minds.

    With that in mind, it is the opinion of the Moderators, nothing further is to be gained and the thread will be closed.

    If anyone wishes to add something to this thread that is of a differing viewpoint and has not already been covered, please let anyone on the Moderator Team know, and reopening of this thread will be considered.

    Also, the thread has gotten off topic.

    We thank all who participated.
