In the now disappeared thread we saw that one of the main causes of BB offenses is taking a topic to start with....but then making it into a personal attack rather than staying on the topic. This usually fails to advance the discussion. Instead of healthy interactions where we can exchange solid biblical information it becomes an occasion of the flesh to bite and devour one another. Now if someone tells lies on a Christian message board that is a sad situation indeed. Such lies come in the form of false witness, a violation of the law of God. In the previous thread it was offered that we all have to work at keeping ourselves in check, but also we can and should be our brothers keeper. Sometimes the moderator or administrative support might be busy, or in some cases the offending party. Maybe we could have some additional emoticons...... A thermometer that is overheating and needs to cool down A frozen thermometer that could indicate....I agree with your post, but do not like how you offered it.....it was too harsh. A man who is falling over a cliff. A twilight zone emoticon when a novelty is offered, A dead body....if you try and kill someone rather than help....etc Can you add to this list?
