From the OPost:


If you simply can't stand someone having an alternate viewpoint to yours, start a blog and dictate from there, instead of coming to a discussion forum and expecting to dictate a sole viewpoint here.


So, yes it is

Does this mean it's wrong when people talk trash about Christians that believe in creation?

There will be NO more discussion of anything other than what has been addressed in the OP, namely the use of Ad-hominem attacks on other members, checking your Ego at the door and making damn sure that you are using civility and decorum at ALL times for ALL topics on ATS.

This is NOT about one specific subject or another and any attempt to make it into one will be removed as off-topic. This thread is NOT an excuse for you to air your discontent regarding a particular topic, thread or Staff Action.

We have the Alert Feature where you may file a complaint and these things will be dealt with privately by the staff and the members in question.

Thank You.

Plenty of facts. You're dodging my question. Christians on this website are attacked all the time.
So if it's going to be fair treatment to all, that includes Christians. So from now on, when I see you or any other evolutionist attacking me or any other Christian, I will report you.

attacked? perhaps you mean have their opinions questioned with reqests for proof
how is that HATE?

as I see it the mod is refering to INSULTING a poster for his opinion while not debating the opinion

Asking for proof and making a joke about it are entirely different. You know full well what I'm talking about and I've got nothing else to say to you about it.

oooooh k
well I have something else to say about it:
if you can't stand up to the rough and tumble why post at all?

no jokes? humor is verbotten???
no more "why can't jesus eat m and ms"?


if the standard elements of writing and debate are to be removed we might as well burn every page in this forum and lock the ashes in the vatican sub basement


there is a difference between a sacred cow and a poster

This thread is about attacking people's integrity simply because they have a viewpoint that does not conform to your own.

It is perfectly possible to discuss an issue without resorting to personal insults or trying to slur the poster that has the opposing viewpoint.

I had thought that was clear from the title, and the opening post.

Apparently people want to make it about more than that, and derail the subject. This thread is not the place for peoples personal agendas.

I appreciate the thread. If we are to leave our ego's at the door, could we, in exchange, get a thicker layer of skin?


Though, I take it as a badge of honour when the only reply/riposte' someone can give is an ad hominem attack.


But forewarned is forearmed, so acknowledged.

the way this thread has progressed has brought up an interesting something

I get the occasional post stomped (see above) because yes, my style puts me on the edge of the TLCs occasionally.
I always said my english coach was my hockey teacher...( hey Mz D!)

On one of my threads two posters complained that they had tried the same topic politely and their threads had sunk like stones, where my thread had a couple of really good drop the gloves duals on it..and it managed to make a few pages.

ie the passionate argueing while trying to stay in the rules gave the thread its legs

the same sort of thing just happened here...the bulk of posting is from passion...reason not so much...
the fail comes when there is no room to be swayed by the good arguements that should lead one to the truth..

thats when the the thread crosses the line into modville as it should...

I wish we had mods in the house of commons here in Canada...LOL
seriously

hey Beez
you get an AV with a SMILE in it and I'll ditch the one with the bullet holes
Image is everything lol

B-B-B-but my feeling got hurt.



Not to get too off topic but people have actually based their replies/attacks ON my avi.

I was thinking something along this

cool

thats a rocking bunny!
T'was me I'd give heem a pointy stick for eye poking


to the christian I was debating up thread
www.abovetopsecret.com...
In my second post down I quoted a poster ( a christian ) doing what you complain about is doen to christians
you never mentioed it was a two way street?
how do you propose we deal with that?

BTW
on topic
you should have seen the look on Beez's face the day I first starred one of his posts

we almost never agree on anything...I could just never bring myself to slug his darn AV with a truncheon,
so basically by following the rules described by Nef in the OP..we have both learned stuff, and we keep an eye on each other's posts because OCCASIONALLY one of us is right, and the other of us benefits too

cheers Beez i salute you.

I think a lot of people here don't know the difference between a person having an interest in a subject and a strong opinion .. and a person being a shill .. and a person being a paid shill.

Imagine how boring this place would be if we always agreed with each other.
