I actually misread the title as "Incel Transformers" and was bracing myself for terrible MRA-themed fanfic :P

Should I really feel good about messing with the Fundies by using the bible to fight against their beliefs, when they insist that they only go by the bible themselves.[?] lol!  ;D

Certainly you should. And I’m very happy you do. I avoid quoting scripture mostly because I see it way to often as a poker game - "I’ll see your Mark and raise you." And as you have repeatedly told Amos it is his interpretation of scripture - not everybody agrees.

Speaking of Amos, I mostly enjoy your long posts and thinking not in that the message will get through to him, but instead all the other folks who will read that message as well.  In a way, think of it as a debate, yes, you are responding to a person, however, your message is to everyone who wanders by.

Jocasta, I'm not sure how to reply to individuals, so I gave this a shot.   :'(

Lots of people don’t know about replying to individuals here. While logged in there is a menu item (on the home row) labeled “My Messages” click it to send messages or read messages people send to you. A number in brackets indicates how many messages you have not read.

I’m spilling the beans for two reasons. First, I’ve sent messages to some folks and do not think they ever saw the message. And second, the only way we learn is by asking and sharing. Thanks again for the info on removing errant thumbs up.

Fair enough.

And most amazingly of all is that he manages all this without once saying anything about what he DOES believe.  He's not a Bible thumper, he never even mentions the Bible.

Huh, I never realized that, but you're right.  At least Amos will tell you what he believes.  Not that he's any less annoying for it, though.  I remember how I had that long conversation with him about that whole "predestination" thing....still don't think I understand that completely, or even that I really want to, to tell the truth.

Jocasta, I'm not sure how to reply to individuals, so I gave this a shot. I expect I'll ask how to do things once in a while, but for the most part I like to figure things out on my own.
When people are rude to me Or my friends, I very politely ask them to behave better so we at the board can have better discussions. Oddly enough, a lot of the rude ones aren't rude to me, but are to others. I love to stand up for Ambulance Chaser when they try to say he does not know that law!
Oboehner's rarely posted to me. I would not be surprised if he was one I politely put down. lol! Either that or he read my bickering back and forth with Amos.  :o
Did you see what Amos said? He reads up to the first "mistake" and then replies to that. That was after ages of asking why he did not answer the questions I had asked. If he was in front of me, I'd probably have to pray for forgiveness tonight. That's how much he bugs me! I am by no means a violent person; I didn't even spank my kids, but I think meeting Amos face to face might make it hard to resist being at least a little violent... like slapping him across the mouth - once for each of the posts I wasted my time typing thinking he really  just doesn't know the bible.  ::) Boy that's a 59yr old confessing to being naive. I knew nothing about Fundies at all. Boy were my eyes opened!
Oh yeah, and I'm a babbler on boards. I try not to be but sometimes it just grows. Then I try to edit it down but there are times that I just sigh and let it go. I do apologize for times I will babble, because I know I do.  :'(

Right. Yeah, you're talking out of your ass there. We respect different opinions. You have been a part of this community long enough to know that. However, you also should damn well know that no one's opinion is safe from criticism. You sitting there complaining that we don't accept differences in opinion reeks of the kinds of people who complain about "violations" of their free speech because they can't get away with spouting hateful nonsense without criticism.

Furthermore, I will also call you out for your association with the hateful pieces of shit that frequent Kiwi Farms. In the very thread we're discussing, we have casual uses of "tranny," an obviously transphobic slur, "chimp out," an extremely racist term and "sperg," an ableist slur that basically shows that refers to Asperger's. Not to mention that Kiwi Farms exists to mock people for no reason other than not conforming to whatever they think is correct behavior. And the one thing I won't abide by is laughing at people behind their backs because they're not "normal."

EDIT: Also, care to explain your contributions to that thread where you complain about us "dogpiling" you and about us being "SJWs?" Because that was a sure fire way to kill the respect I once had for you.

So, since posting here, she's been posting there about us?

So, if I understand this right, we're talking about them, for talking about us, for talking about them, for talking about us, while talking about us. Meta.

Lady Checkmate addresses (indirectly, as always) her "stalker".

PSA: To the brethren

You all are aware that our mission is to be light in this dark place, share the gospel of Jesus Christ boldy and to encourage the brethren. I just wanted to let you all know that I temporarily close OPs because F&R's stalker (atheist, reprobates, etc.) uses multiple sock accounts to mass-down vote comments from Christians, but they can't down vote comments on closed threads.

I'm OK with being down voted (persecuted, etc.), as long as we can get the gospel truth out. Unfortunately, down votes can cause an OP/channel to be ranked low (which is still irrelevant as long as we get the gospel out to the lost). But, a low ranking may limit the exposure a channel/thread receives. We can counter this attack by recommending and up voting Christian comments here.

The troll's MO is to literally, out of anger and insanity that they can't stop the gospel of Jesus Christ from going forth here use multiple sock accounts to mass down vote comments from Christians immediately one after the other indicating it's the same person using multiple accounts. Again, this is also evidence that our stalker is a channel owner and has knowledge of the inner workings of the platform. I know who it is, but that doesn't matter as they too need Jesus Christ.

What does matter is that the stalker is so hateful and demonized that they have decided that since they can't stop us from sharing truth (troll us w/petty insults, attacks, etc. until we stop believing and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ), they'll try to down vote us and attack individual users and try to limit the exposure of the gospel to the lost. We are not our won and the life that we live we live in Christ. They still don't understand...again the carnal man cannot undestand spiritual matters.

Presently, the usernames of those who up vote are visible, but those who down vote are not. No worries, because when Disqus starts showing the users doing the down voting (they now show those who flag), I'll handle them individually. For now, we ask that ALL believers and visitors please RECOMMEND ALL DISCUSSION threads and UP VOTE ALL Christian comments. Our goal is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and Truth with others and to fellowship with other believers and encourage each other in Christ. The enemy hates that and is using those submitted to him and wickedness to try and counter what God is doing here. We know we always triumph in all things in Christ. Be in agreement with us for God's will to be done and for Him to magnified and glorified in ALL that we do in Jesus name.

Thank you to the individual whose wise words and encouragement (confirming what God put in my heart to do) has led me to post this here. I don't want to embarrass anyone, so I won't mention names without permission.


So.  Where to begin.

Her trust in everyone is so low that she basically renders her own channel pointless by locking all the conversations from any posts because she's afraid of trolls.  She wouldn't HAVE trolls if she didn't treat the people who post on her channel as poorly as she does, with the ban hammer falling approximately every five seconds.  And all the wanton post deletions.

She gets scads of downvotes because she's such a horrible person.  No surprise there - I encourage EVERYONE who has a Disqus account to go there and downvote her as much as possible (Just be sure never to post, or to upvote anything there - because then she will have your username and ban you).  But now - in addition to begging her handful of "brethren" to RECOMMEND! her discussions, even if she's closed them from further posting (chortle), she's begging for upvotes.  (Important point you may not be aware of:  If the conversation is closed, or if you are banned there, you cannot downvote anything).

Sadly, even after all this time, she has to lie and say "out of anger and insanity that they can't stop the gospel of Jesus Christ from going forth here" when she's been told over, and over, and over, and over, and OVER that no one gives a damn about her faith or the fact that she's black.  She keeps trying to turn this into an attack on her faith, when people are simply pissed off because nearly EVERYONE at some time or another shown up there and tried to take part in a conversation and were banned - for no reason other than she didn't agree with them - which is frustrating, humiliating, and rude.

Disqus isn't going to do anything to help her because they don't like her either.
