> > These verses are continually causing me deep emotional distress even though I have requested over and over not to post such, for they remind me of the horrors of Nazism and that 1 1/2 million Jewish children were murdered with that ideology put in the minds of the murderers and the people that supported them.
> Lou, Administration interpreted the above as "that ideology" as meaning the verses you referred to as causing you distress. If you intended to say that it is not the verses themselves, but an improper interpretation of them as what put into the mind of the idea of the Holocaust, then thank you for clarifying.
> And for note, in general, it is no more allowable under site guidelines to refer to portions of any religion's Holy Books as being the idea behind mass murder than it is to quote certain passages from those Holy Books. If someone posts something that you believe to be against site guidelines, including quotes from the Bible, or Koran, or any other book, please use the notification button and refrain from posting your objections on board. It is entirely true that certain portions of a poster's faith may not be appropriate to be posted on Babble under the site guidelines.
> However, Dr. Bob's guideline has always been that two wrongs don't make a right. Which means that it is also not appropriate to post statements that a poster's faith, or verses from the books they consider to be holy, are the idea behind murders.
> Dr. Bob has reviewed the actions on this thread. Further repetitions of what has deemed to be uncivil will result in the appropriate Administrative action.
> Deputies *can't* change what decisions Dr. Bob has made in the past. Please send notifications about specific posts made from this point forward using the "Notify Administrators" function. Please send objections about Administrative rulings about specific posts made in the past directly to Dr. Bob by his email address. Please include both the link and a specific reason for considering it uncivil in the email (not on board). He'll see them sooner that way.
> He has said he is no longer able to reply to every email, but if you do not see any action on his part, I would interpret that as saying he intends for his previous action to stand. It is my experience that he might not explain this in any great depth, and that his usual response is that he has reviewed the post and considered it acceptable under board guidelines, or that he prefers to look forward rather than back.
> The administrative board is not the place for reporting individual posts, as that may lead posters to feel accused or put down. It is for discussing administrative policy in general.
> I hope this clarifies Administrative policy for you.

You wrote,[...if you intended to say that it was the improper interpretation and not the verses...put into the minds of people the idea of the holocaust then thank you for clarifying...]
That is correct and I am appreciative that you could see that possibility and post that here to clarify that.
