  1. Definitions: the rules are subject to human interpretation, and provocations, like certain posters' incessant drumming their disdain of prophetic counsel and perceived aggrieved status into threads without regard to whether what they're saying is inapposite or on point, get ignored. There is, moreover, this: thread bans, warnings, and thread closings are rarely explained, and then, or so it appears, only when the one being banned or warned is in the privileged class.
  2. The editorial and moderation policies of MDD, after the change in ownership and change in direction, have created a spirit that I struggle with, and I imagine I'm not the only one. AntiMormon screeds and pro-homosexuality propaganda fill the posts, with ad hominem permitted if the recipient is a faithful poster or safely dead Mormon of some fame, and stamped out if the recipient is one of those perveying the screeds and pro-homosexuality propaganda. I've coped with this by disappearing for months at a time, but I'm wondering if, this time, I would be better off just leaving for good and finding somewhere else where discussions are useful. I'm reminded of Sunstone in the early days, when Paul Toscano, a professional colleague at the time, invited me to participate in the Mormon Antidefamation League project. He represented it to me as an opportunity to respond to unfair press stories and other publications being used to defame the Church and curtail missionary work and, if possible, whittle away at the edges of the body of believers. I attended a meeting or two, but left sorely disappointed when the only topic ever discussed was clergy malpractice. If you've been around long enough, you'll remember what came of that. I ended up leaving Sunstone altogether. This place feels like that. Thoughts?
  3. I'm about done again. The mods. The trendylefty politics. The narking. The motherhenning.
  4. Because my grandkids think I'm adorable?
  5. Yes, of course, which recorded evidence of behaviors. Not "identities." Which are recent wholly imagined constructs by individuals in real time.
  6. You seem awfully certain. Wayback Machine?
  7. I like to imagine nobody on the Israelite side spiking the ball after they got what they'd hoped for. This song sure captures that. That Exodus tells of the Egyptians following with revenge on their minds and in their hearts makes you think maybe this song pretties things up a little much.
  8. Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill.
  9. Not entirely true. The concept was invented in Germany by a person whose name is known, though arguably homosexuality as exclusive amatory sprung up in the XVIIITH Century..
  10. There's this as well: https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/melanie-arter/castro-we-already-pay-health-care-illegal-aliens-its-called-emergency
  11. Defense of self ... and of others from bullies. By the time high school came about, few were fighting. My line: "Are you quite sure you want to escalate this?" Nobody seemed to want to.
  12. My only son has a mental age of two. It never came up.
  13. He taught my bar review con law course. I liked him a lot. He looked and sounded exactly like Tennessee Tuxedo.
  14. She died at about 97 in the early 60s. I only saw her 2 or 3 times when I was very young. She prepared this to submit to the local paper, but never got around to publishing it: LIFE IN THESE UNITED STATES
