There used to be rules that were enforced concerning inflammatory language aimed at any Bible translation. As posters we could inform mods of the violations and particular posters would have their comments flagged or removed. Those posters would also get a warning from a mod or administrator. But such rules are not being enforced now. Mods and Admins are asleep at the wheel. A certain poster regularly says disparaging things about the HCSB and NIV and there is nary a word of rebuke. Why should remarks like the following be allowed here regarding any Bible translation in the mainstream? "a lously and corrupt translation" "the deplorable" "the ____is pervasively twisted from cover-to-cover." "the ___ is often dumb for no appartent reason." "There are many bad translations like the ___ and ___" "the ___ is produced by people I don't trust." "Same lousy ___." What has happened to the standards that used to be held to before? Put the shoe on the other foot. I have wake some of you up. What if the following were said regarding these translations? The KJV is a lousy and corrupt translation. The deplorable NKJV. The NASB is pervasively twisted from cover-to-cover. The ESV is often dumb for no apparent reason. There are many bad translations like the NASB and NKJV. The ESV is produced by people I don't trust. Same lousy KJV. If those last seven lines offended you --then why weren't you offended when those sentiments were expressed regarding the NIV and HCSB? There is a clear double-standard that needs to be exposed.
