Jeez, is it just me, or are things pretty boring around here? I have tried going away for a few days and coming back to see if there is some place that I could maybe say something supportive, but I have to say, I can't find too many places. I haven't tried most of the drugs on PB, PSB is full of mango talk (which I am allergic to) and PFB just seems to be the same "type" of posts. So, I am here, on PBA, letting who ever cares, know, that this site is getting dull.

I do however have a couple questions for Dr. Bob and crew:

1. Why is the advice to simply ignore posts that you find offensive? I mean, don't you have to read them first, thereby paying attention to them, to know that you're offended?

2. Why on a religious faith board are people not allowed to say what they actually believe. Wouldn't someone that shared the beleif find that supportive? I happen to find MOST of the stuff on PFB to be contradictory to what I beleive, and therefore not particularly supportive to me personally. But if the support that is being offered is actually for the people that share similar beliefs or as a way to explain and therefore understand other religions, than wouldn't people have to explain their actual beleifs? And if their actual belief was that Santa Claus, and only Santa Claus, can deliver presents christmas morning, for example, why can't they say that? What exactly is the purpose of this board?

3. And does Please Be Civil also mean please don't make fun of someone in a subtle way? Or please don't point out the outrageous? Or, please don't EVER get frustrated and express it? Or please don't ask other posters a question more than once?

4. Have all the people that said they were leaving come back? Why do we threaten to leave when we're pissed (I've done it) instead of either leaving, or staying? Is this some psychological thing?

5. Where is Zo?

Hi Lini.
Answer to #5 is Zo's been blocked for a while.

My answer to #4 is psychological somewhat. I feel responsible to a degree for what has gone on by encouraging some of the original posts (in good faith) that only led to anguish & despair. Okay, maybe I shouldn't state it THAT strong, but people did get upset. So I feel that I should try to clear matters up a bit, if I can. Some seem to appreciate it & I have been civil to the best I can. At least, Bob hasn't told me otherwise.

And, dear Lini, I think you very nicely answered #3 way back on February 15 in http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/social/20020214/msgs/18307.html
A very enlightening post from you.

#2 on Faith. Well, to me, it seems the purpose of that board was to placate some people, hoping to keep controversy to a minimum (as if!). Anyone is allowed to post as long as they water down their beliefs so "one size fits all". Being wishy-washy is encouraged along with the choice whether to vacillate on what you believe or not.

And finally, #1. Of course, it's necessary to read such posts first but don't admit it. If one admits that she/he read & was offended, then she/he obviously is not following the wise counsel to ignore inflammatory material, & it's her/his own fault for getting riled up so easily. On the other hand, we can all pretend we didn't read any of the posts. That would stop controversy before it even started. Or we could post completely unrelated posts back & forth - like a group carrying on a conversation that no one listens to & no one answers. Sounds a lot like what happens when world leaders get together to discuss peace policies.

 

ditto what she said. Lini

Lini:

Plus: I came back for a second to correct some spelling, and I got sucked into it again. That's my psychological reason for coming back.

With regard to the boards being boring, don't you find them nicer and more peaceful with so many of the debaters gone? (Though PBA and PBF are looking a little rough.) But what could be controversial about mangoes?

> 1. Why is the advice to simply ignore posts that you find offensive? I mean, don't you have to read them first, thereby paying attention to them, to know that you're offended?

The advice is to ignore someone's posts if you're not interested in what they have to say or you don't care for how they say it. If someone's using language that could offend others or posting something that's uncivil in some other way, that's different, and I'd like to know about it.

> 2. Why on a religious faith board are people not allowed to say what they actually believe. Wouldn't someone that shared the beleif find that supportive?

Maybe, but others might find it unsupportive.

> What exactly is the purpose of this board?

Support and education. With a focus on religious faith.

> 3. And does Please Be Civil also mean please don't make fun of someone in a subtle way? Or please don't point out the outrageous? Or, please don't EVER get frustrated and express it? Or please don't ask other posters a question more than once?

A lot of it is context. And subjective. Sorry not to be able to spell it out any better in advance...

Some good questions, Lini, though I imagine you'll get a PBC.

I came back to support Kiddo whose "rhetoric" was called anti-semitic.

I know, I know - I'm still here. Don't plan to be for long though. I sure do still like the med board...

I don't particularly find a certain poster to be supportive to me, however, they didn't receive a 'pbc' or pbs (please be supportive) message and I did...so again I ask, where is MY support? So to who/whom (?) does the support belong? This is beginning to feel more and more discriminating against me every day.

No individual poster is under any obligation to be supportive to any other individual poster. There's a difference between not being supportive and being unsupportive.

> so again I ask, where is MY support? So to who/whom (?) does the support belong?

This isn't the place to look for support for potentially unsupportive beliefs. There are other forums that allow freer discussion of religious and other issues.

That may be my fault, and if so, I apologize, but there may also be some group process at work. I'll start a new thread with some links...

I think I'm beginning to understand now. Only certain people and their *beliefs* are supported by you, and anyone/anything else is *unsupportive here. However,


I can't believe what I'm reading. You want me to go somewhere else? You want ME to leave, but not someone else?????????? Why I'm surprised, I have no idea.....fine.

Putting someone down is being unsupportive. Not responding at all is not being supportive, but not being unsupportive, either.

If you want to put it that way, yes, I only support the posting of certain types of beliefs.

> I can't believe what I'm reading. You want me to go somewhere else? You want ME to leave, but not someone else??????????

Did I say I wanted you to leave? I'd just like you to refrain from posting certain types of beliefs. But I understand that your beliefs are important to you, and it would be natural to want to have them supported. *If* it's important for you to be free to put down others and to have that supported, then for *that purpose* other forums are more appropriate.

You support some but not others. I'd like to know what other types of beliefs you don't support so I may politely mention to a poster who is new to the board that they cannot post about headhunting
or whatever.
I know you don't support one way to paradise; anything else?

Bob

Kiddo can certainly speak for herself, but what has me stymied, and maybe her too, is the perception that Lou is being allowed to strongly espouse his religious beliefs and she is not. You've drawn a distinction between her assertion of the "only road" and Lou's failure to make a similar assertion, but this seems like a distinction without a difference.

Lou takes just about any posting opportunity he can to retell his experience in the context of whatever is being discussed. He may never say "and you should do this too or this is the only route to happiness or to personal salvation" but the message is so pervasive and repetitive and I really do think it's retold again and again precisely to convey the message that his is the only road to personal salvation without using those words.

It also seems that some people feel that Lou is not being very supportive of them because they find the retelling of his experience to be so unresponsive to whatever posts preceded it. The retelling of his experience, with considerable embellishment of the factual context, can appear to be much more for his gratification than our support. This is a very difficult message to get across to him because you've so sharply circumscribed what can be said. If we can't say "please don't tell me again about the city of peace," how can we communicate that we find the persistent retelling of his story to be nonresponsive and unsupportive, and in that respect, rather annoying? I think that there have been enough swirling controversies over people trying to say just that to Lou, for him to fully understand that this particular kind of contribution is not valued. Yet his posts never really change. Why isn't that the same kind of baiting that you've cautioned other people for?

I agree that this Board is not a great place to espouse any sort of belief as the be all and end all for everyone whether it be a particular medication (or no medication) or a particular therapy (or no therapy) or a particular religious belief. I hope that people can find a way on the faith board to moderate their statements so they can share their beliefs with others without it seeming that pressure is being applied or that someone of a different belief is being put down. I can't see how this is going to happen if all the rules are being drawn really just to address the issue of how to deal with one poster who's done very little to accommodate the wishes and sensibilities of anyone other than you.

I appreciate how difficult it is for you. You like to respond to specific posts. Lou may play within the technical parameters of your rules with each individual post but very much breach them in spirit through a whole range of posts and threads. I think that's why some people appreciated Iso's summary and why it might be tough for you to see the larger picture, and appreciate why there have been complaints that you are not moderating the Board in an even handed and nondiscriminating fashion.

mair,
I believe that there could be a fundamental difference between what I am posting and the posts of Kiddo.
One difference, is the "only road", or the "wrong road" thought. Dr. Bob has rulled that type of thought out on this board. Not because he is saying that it is right or wrong, but because his rules do not allow it. He does say that there are other forums that accomodate that type of thought.
Another aspect is that I am reiterating an experiance that I had. There are also others telling of their experiance here. One told of seeing their jesus in the sky in Arizona. Another of a vision of a man on a throne and a gold star on the wall. These are experiances. They are not telling others here that what they experianced *must* be experiabced by evryone else, and niether am I. I am telling what happened to me. One poster wrote that there could be someone, someday, on this board telling that they experianced being abducted by martians and that experiance could be told here without objection.
Now people here tell of their experiance with Paxile and Ambien and it is accepted here without objection. Some comment on ther experiances with the drugs a pos. or neg.
There are posers here that comment that they have had a neg. or pos. experiance with religion.

mair,
I am not telling what happened to me for my gratification. In fact, I have been ostracised by many for telling my experiance, not on this board, but in my life. I know that the telling of my experince has the possibility to cause othes to be hostile towards me. In fact, my own family and friends and people have abandoned me. They say that I "need help". In a sense, when someone talks about being accelerated in time and seeing the earth vanish, or telling of going back in time and having a discussion with the Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, or to tell that I was a witness to someone being raised from the dead and made alive again, that will cause some skeptisism, to say the least. But when I was in the City of Peace, I was told , "All things are possible with God."

Thank you mair, you spoke what I've been trying to say and so eloquently too. I still don't see the difference, however, it's unfortunate that the 'admin' doesn't see my side of it.

You're right, and perhaps that's where I've gone wrong. Instead of saying what the Bible says, I should have told of my experiences and perhaps that would have been more accepting. I won't speak of 'roads' anymore on this forum because it's become apparent to me that there are certain prejudices against me and my belief that won't be modified by anything I say or do. That isn't a sarcastic reply, just my own feelings/thoughts and (at this point anyway), haven't been censored as well...

I agree again. However, if the tables were turned, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'd be receiving a PBS or PBC regarding the matter. I can probably answer that last question for you....it's because it's worded as his experience...and there is no 'right road' wrong road' comment to use against him. It's like I was censored for one thing, now I feel like I'm being censored for everything....again, that's just my take on things....

mair,
You said that you can't say to me to please stop telling you again about the city of peace. And that you would like a way to tell me that it is nonresponsive, unsuppotive,and rather annoying.
Mair, I have just had a poster respond to me. He wanted to know if the pearl-white Mustang was the horse and the driver the Rider.
I also have had numerous questions , which are responses, that we are going over now.
Well, anythng can be annoying, but that doesn't mean that only posts that others find non-annoying can be posted.
You also say that my posts are non-supportive.
But you see, mair, I am only planting a seed. And there are those, perhaps, that the seed will grow in and they will be supported. Maybe not today, and maybe not tomorrow, but soon. And, perhaps, there are those that will not water the seed and let it stay by the wayside and ignore it. And there maybe those that remember the seed and go back to find it later and have it grow even though they first thought that the seed was a delusion. But I have seen the great trees that have grown from the seed. I have seen the transformed lives of those that had gone astray and were brought back into the sheepfold.
I know that there are a lot of people that do not believe in the seed here. But it is the people here that are shakeled in their addictions and slaves to their depression that have a right to , at least, hear about the seed so that they can make their decision themselves to either walk away or allow the seed to grow. Let those that have an ear to hear, hear. Let those that want to come out of the darkness an into the marvelous light ,see. Let those that are thirsty drink from rivers of living water. Let those that are down hear the Rider that said," Humble yourself to the Lord and he will lift you up."

Let those that have an ear to hear, hear. Let those that want to come out of the darkness an into the marvelous light ,see. Let those that are thirsty drink from rivers of living water. Let those that are down hear the Rider that said," Humble yourself to the Lord and he will lift you up." "


Please explain to me why this is not an example of proselytizing, and if you agree that it is, why it's ok? Don't you think this supports the arguement that the retelling of Lou's experience is a form of proselytizing?

" What makes you think these rules are just to address the issue of Lou?"


You make think all of the discussions since the origination of the faith board have broader applications and perhaps they do, but in my view they arose because of the unique problems which Lou poses for many posters. The guidelines might have had to have been thrashed out eventually, but it would have been in a different, and probably (albeit speculatively) less hostile climate.

mair,
I do not believe that Dr.Bob's definition of proselytising is in breach here. The now definiion is not to try to get someone to join a particular religion, like the Jahovah's Witnesses, or let's say, the Methodists.
I was telling you that I would like for people to hear what I am saying, so that they can make their own choice as to whether to allow what I am saying to be fruitfull.
Now if Dr. Bob wants to expand his definitin ofproselytising to include what you are calling to his attention, then I will abide by that.
Lou
