Proselyting, witnessing or other one sided posts intended to preach not discuss

I kind of feel like the thread "Restored Gospel?" is dangerously close to violating this principle. A moderator may want to check it out.

Yes we are not on a secure server so it’s not https 

Just in the last two days, when I try to log in, I get this huge warning page (Chrome) saying I am going into dangerous territory- and "Do you want to do that?" and then you have to find a little link at the bottom that says "advanced" which repeats the same message- and you must click that to get here.

Same thing on my phone- Android, and that just started two days ago- wait- no that was just yesterday- this is the second day.

Is it a big deal to get a secured server?   It does give me pause about coming here now--

We are now on a secure server.  It self signed so you will get the warning.  If you ad to trusted sites it’ll go away.

Here's some information about how to do that.

I was able to update the certificate.  You should have anymore issues,

I’ve just now been able to access the site after two-three days of blackout. I couldn’t figure out a way to assume the risk even if I had chosen to do so.

I made a video showing how do it in 4 different browsers. Then it finally dawned on me that in order to see a link to the video, you'd need to be able to access the site! 

Silly me.

Meh.

Just a hassle to close sometimes, takes up room on the screen

FYI, attempting to bypass a 403 Forbidden warning by creative editing will get you booted, but either mods are really on the ball or it allows you back in past the firewall automatically upon request. I got back in under an hour the first time (too many drug names, iirc I was posting in the virus drugs) and maybe ten minutes at most the second (url of a news article had forbidden phrase).  I think it was the repeated attempts to save with slight changes that triggered the firewall. 
 

If it was the mods’ quick response letting me back in, thank you!

If I may ask, I am curious why it is seen as demeaning or belittling and illegal to call Joseph "Joe". I've seen that opinion a lot and was curious to see it in the rules.

People who knew him and were friends and family called him Joseph.  In the newspapers and other writings of his time, many derogatory articles would call him Joe.  That difference has been pretty consistent over the years from what I have seen.

My apologies about contributing to the political, definitely wasn’t thinking with that last comment.

Vicious rumor.  Nemesis is way too sensible and decisive to be me.  

Nemesis is the owner of the board.  I kept saying since I joined this board no way would I ever be a mod again...and btw Nemesis never asked me...if he was ever thinking about it (which I doubt after seeing what happened on ZLMB) probably because he knows I would triple his work by asking almost every time "should we ban this guy or can I just post a warning", but some thought I was just lying about it.  That plus my sharing how the board works when I know about about it and guesses when I don't sometimes and tendency to board nanny a bit....

But no, I will never be a mod again.  I broke my vow once for FM and won't again as it confirmed all my reasons for not doing it....takes all the fun out of posting for me.

I often feel bad for our mods thinking they aren't able to really post or have dialogue. But maybe I'm wrong and any one of you could be nemesis, hopefully that is so.

Is there a way to stop the quotes from automatically collapsing?  It is frustrating when it isn’t a huge quote and the most important info is in the latter part that gets hidden. People may assume that what they see is all that is there.
