Do you think Joy is the only Christian that has been on here with a sweet, non-confrontational attitude? You are entitled to think she has never reminded you of anyone else. Just goes to show that most times no two people think alike.

I don't know why in the world anyone would think you were Joy.

 

Semi, I think those who accused Joy of being me or Basement Cat were in a group called HBs ( I won't write it out), but I did meet someone in person once who asked if I were Joy. I assume he was told that. I think these women just didn't like anyone who was reasonably successful job wise or educated.

 

Yes, I did think you were someone else who lived in Littleville, retired, and had lost a child. You say you are not she, so I believe you. Apologies if I offended you. I will never mention it again.

Frog, thank you for giving me this opportunity to share this with our Forum Friends.  I pray that I have helped you better understand why I am on the Religion Forum -- and why I will be here until God removes me.

Bill, what about that one person you lead away from eternal life in Christ due to your judgmental ways, & your misinterpretation of scriptures? You bring it across as your belief is the only correct belief.

 

Frog hit the nail on the head exactly when she made the statement "If I had never heard of God and the first person I heard speak of him was you and I only knew of him from reading your posts here I would never want to read a Bible or attend any church at all ever".

 

Bill, you said, "we Christian believers do not purposely choose to come here and be called all sorts of name". 

I don't think I've seen any other Christians here come across the way you do. And exactly what are those "all sorts of names"?

You pray that you have helped Frog better understand why you're on the Religion Forum?

I get it & I'm sure frog does too.

For instance, semi, you have quite a bit in common with a member who used to post here under the name Taciturn, but I certainly did not 'know' you were her.  When it came up one time, I am 99% sure that you said that was not the case & that was that. 

 

I let the whole whose who thing go...decided my response to a post is going to be the same regardless of who I am talking to...so it makes no difference what user name that person is currently using.  JMHO

_______________________________

Joy, if I took something you said, twisted it, turned it completely around than the way you said it, & posted it on this forum as something Joy said, have I lied?

Bill does that, not just to me but to others too. When showing Bill what was originally said, & the way he twisted it, he will not answer why he did it or apologize.

 

I’ve never understood the fascination, or why anyone would have a problem with someone coming back with another ID. Who does it hurt? You are closely similar in your post with another person here too, but why would anyone care?

Jenn & I have a lot of thoughts on the same issues, does that mean I’m also Jenn? Of course not.

 

You have 2 friends on this forum that have been rude to me, especially one of them, in their remarks that I was Taciturn. No coming right out & asking, just snide hateful remarks, that I believe was only meant to hurt or put me down. When I answered your friends snide remarks as to if I was or wasn’t the former Taciturn, she refused to answer my question of how it was hurting her.

I don’t understand why or how another ID would affect someone else.

You're right on in that it should make no difference what user name that person is currently using.

 

 

 

I didn't say I liked his tactics.  He and I have had many disagreements in the past over that.  I stopped trying to talk to him about.  He's not going to change.

 

I have no idea what you are talking about involving yourself and two of my friends?  Is this something recent?  Do you mean online friends?  Regardless, that is between you and them.  I am sorry I brought up that the content of your posts resemble a former member's.  The correlation popped into my mind when I was writing my post & it fit.  I did not mean to offend you.  It was stupid of me and I apologize.

 

My point was that there is no way to say a member is going by some other name unless they out themselves...so we may accuse people of having multiple names, but it's not like anybody can prove it.

 

I've just been me since I signed on here.  I actually signed on with my entire name at first but my husband had a small cow and asked me to shorten it to Joy.  Thank God I listened to him considering the complete nutcases who have come through here...lol.

 

A few days ago I wanted to see if it were possible to sign up under a different name, tried it using a different email & was rejected.  They must be monitoring IP addresses now.  Kudos to TVT Admin for that!   Of course, I don't do that whole proxy server thing either.  I suppose if someone has more than one name now that this is how they get by with it.  I know how to recognize a proxy server as an Admin (from my forum elsewhere) but don't know how & don't want to know how to use them myself.  It was a big enough pain just learning how to recognize them.

He even started attacking me and calling me nasty names too after I started confronting him and his trolling nature. Everything that man posted here pretty much was lies. People like that have no place on a forum. I've dealt with them in the past on my own forums and sites and refuse to go through that again.

If this makes me a terrible person so be it but I do know others reported him as well. It has been so nice here without the constant attacks and harassment and lies.

 

 

No, ma'am, it does not make you a terrible person.  That would be the purpose of the 'report post' option.  It's there for a reason and there is zero shame in using it for that reason...

When did that happen?

______________________

 

A week or so ago. Someone reported one of his post made to Bill and he got banned. I have no idea if it was Bill or not, but with his hatred for Unobtanium and the fact that the post was directed at him, I would vote that Bill did it.


I don't know what he could have said that he hasn't already said.  Oh well, as I stated, no rhyme or reason.

_______________________________________________

 

He used some colorful language while admonishing Bill for saying that Contendah was an atheist, just because Contendah had a different opinion on some scripture.


 

 

I didn't know either.  That's the suck, Unob.

So, I tried to look around and see how this all started...not enough time in my world to figure that out...lol...but will add my two cents worth on the report/ban thing...don't look so shocked.

 

If a post is reported because it is in violation of TVT Terms & Conditions, the violation gets the member banned, not the person who reported the violation.  TVT apparently doesn't bother giving someone a warning first anymore (hate that...everybody loses their temper here at some point); so best be careful out there.  Also, it might be prudent to skip over posts written by someone you know could drive a saint to cuss.

 

Good grief...sorry about the quadruple postings.

*****************************

I know people in Littleville, (would you like to have their name/phone number?) only worked when I wanted to,  & I know people that have lost a child. The world is a big place, sadly there is people that lose a child every day.

Is there anything else you want to know about me? Want to meet for lunch so you can see if I'm someone you know?

 

I know a couple of RN's that work Hospice, several RN's at ECM, 6 at Keller, & 2 in Russellville. Since someone mentioned on here once that you were a nurse, why would it interest me that you might be one of them? Just to clarify, I don't care if you are or not.

 

Just exactly what is your fascination with Taciturn, or even me? 

Semi, I apologized. That means I offered you an apology. I said I would not mention it again. If you wish not to accept my apology, that is your choice, but I hope you do.

 

I have no fascination with Taciturn. I did hope she would choose not to come back to the forum since she accused two or three very nice ladies of planning a physical attack on her. It was rather an odd situation since Tac didn't save screen shots of the messages and those accused did. Tac is also the one who reported the poster for answering her question regarding the meaning of MILF. Perhaps it was PMS, but you can understand that we would not want anyone to have to go through that again. Now, I will not mention Tac again and sincerely hope that clears things up for you.

Hi Ladies,

 

Someone posted regarding Uno:

 

A week or so ago.  Someone reported one of his post made to Bill and he got banned.  I have no idea if it was Bill or not, but with his hatred for Unobtanium and the fact that the post was directed at him, I would vote that Bill did it.

 

He used some colorful language while admonishing Bill for saying that Contendah was an atheist, just because Contendah had a different opinion on some scripture.

 

First, I have no hatred toward Uno.  Hate is a negative waste of time and energy.   I certainly do not accept Uno's atheism nor his secularism -- for they are false religions.   But, they are his religions and he will have to live with them -- eternally.  That is, unless he changes his path and decides to enter the Narrow Gate (Matthew 7:13-14) before breathing his last breath in this mortal life.

 

Second, I never noticed that Uno had used "colorful language" in a post to me.  Most of his posts are rather colorful -- so, why should one stand out from the others?

 

Third, I did not know he was banned until someone began to post about it.  I do not begin my day by eagerly looking for posts from Uno -- so, if he were missing for a few days, I would not even notice.

 

And, fourth -- NO, I DID NOT report him for the suggested post -- or any post he has written. 

 

Like Joy mentioned, I believe a person deserves to get a warning first before being banned.  And, I believe a short ban would be effective in toning down a lot of the negative, nasty, or crude language.   I know that when Fish and I had words in PMs several years ago and I did lose my cool -- being banned for a week certainly made me pay more attention to words and how they are used, even in private PMs.

 

So, ladies, I hate to burst any bubbles, even if you want to put me on a pedestal -- but, once again, nope, not me.  I did not report Uno for anything and did not even know that Uno was upset with me.   If posts are always one color -- how does anyone know if the shade changes slightly?  So, Uno may have gotten colorful with me -- but, he forgot to flag me on it.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill
