    Hey now, I don't remember what the original issue was but what I do remember is that you got a little ticked about something and escalated it from women in ministry to women in authority roles and that included the female mods...and that's when the fireworks started!

    That's what we're doing and in retrospect that was funny. ;)

    Been booted off several forums before. (Mods take note!Lol)


    On one, I was just arguing for freewill and personal responsibility, that's all. Then I made the mistake of pointing out that, as was being argued, if God forcibly impregnated people with his seed against their freewill, then God must be a rapist.

    Oooops, big mistake. I didn't know it was a Calvinist forum!

    In fact I hadn't a clue about Calvinism, (or Arminianism for that matter) until they tried to hammer me into submission. My theology had come from reading scripture not from famous but dead theologians. I had always hated being branded with any "isms".

    Anyway, rather than answering the point, they cast me into outer darkness with weeping and gnashing of teeth.


    On another forum where I more diplomatically stated a similar point, I got temporarily blocked for "rudeness". But seeing they never reopened my access, nor answered any emails, I was never able to comment again. A very cynical and lazy way of dealing with anyone who you disagree with!
    I thought it incredibly hypocritical because the forum name and the forum ethos was "Grace, grace and more grace etc", something they obviously never give anyone they disagree with.

    That was a looking for a reaction, which I was pleased to deliver.
    No, no poke intended, it was so many years ago that I wouldn't remember who the lady mods were at that time.

    One thing I have to say is that I'm not the same person online now that I was a few years ago. I was so afraid of ruffling ANYONE'S feathers. What if they thought I wasn't a nice person???

    Then I got set free... how that happened is a long story with the removal of a very controlling, always right, person in my life who I always had to back down from, right from childhood. When I drew some boundaries there, I became free to be me.

    Anyhow... I'm a nice person (honest) with a quick wit who hates debate and the devil and loves people and Jesus!

    I left a writer's forum about 7-8 years ago that had mostly atheist Europeans posted on it, with no moderation. They were absolutely the meanest, nastiest, most insane bunch I've ever seen. The godless are really the worst. Having no moderation made it much worse. They were bullies to the inth degree....just MEAN. I was like.....this place is worse than One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and knew that there was no way I could interact with these people.

    Call me naive, but what's there to get mean about on a writer's forum? You weren't conjugating your verbs, or what???
