    There is a group of BB members growing on Facebook. One painful lesson I have learned and rightly so, is that harsh words on here can come back to bite you when you meet someone face to face (in a internet sense), you see their picture, their families, and their beliefs/interests. It will soften your tone even in disagreement.

    I have already been bit once, and take it as a sign to tone down my wording sometimes. If you do not want it said face to face, do not say it that way.

    Any thoughts?

    A good idea is when we send friend requests to one another to let the person know what our screenname is here..

    Sometimes I get friend requests from names I don't recognize.. and it takes me a while to check out the BB members list on our FB group.. if it is on there I will accept it...

    This is good. We often think the person behind that moniker is as 2 dimmensional as their avatar.

    Our words can cause great damage to others just as much as in person.

    I would like to, but I don't know if "they" will accept a Baptist who is not only primitive but so hyper-Calvinist he raises the hackles of some hypers and gives the shivers to the hypos. Besides, I don't know how to.

    Yea but you have to watch out for some. They hit you with snowballs when you are not looking. Especially watch out for the yellow ones.

    Considering I'm 100% Floridian and the only place I've seen snow is ARIZONA .. oh and I think it snowed a little bit in '88 here in Jacksonville ..you know .. when I was 1-years-old.

    I just might be cool with the yellow snow .. only because any snow is cool with me .. :laugh:

    Oh c'mon .. I'm not dumb!

    I'm just saying .. I'll take any snow. Especially snow that is sterile! It's probably cleaner than regular snow! Right???

    A snowball with a rock in it sounds pretty vicious though - that's messed up!
