i won't be posting here anymore. good bye.
Followinghim, I'm sorry that you've decided not to post anymore. Hope nothing happened to cause you to feel bad or unwelcome, and hope that maybe you will reconsider.
What happen followinghim..?
I seen where you made a post on my thread
saying you were out of here...
I pray that it was not something i said..
I can't recall at the moment what thread i
seen this on...please let me know if it was
something i said...?
And if it was...I'am sorry....
If I ever decide to stop posting here (and I don't see that happening) I will not post that I am leaving. I will just quietly slip away into the sunset.
When people post they are leaving, in my opinion, they are wanting attention and wanting someone to correct something that they feel is wrong. Or it could be that they want people to talk them into staying. This is not the way to go about it.
If you feel something is wrong or if someone said something that hurt your feelings; be up front about it and state what is wrong or send that person a PM and straighten it out.
What is the point of saying you are leaving? If you are truly leaving; why start a thread that you won't be here to read???
I am not trying to be harsh, but this just doesn't make sense to me.
I can't speak for followinghim, but if I had a problem, or thought that someone had been less than nice to me here, or anywhere else, I wouldn't necessarily start a confrontation either. I try to avoid them, when at all possible. From followinghim's post, I assume that there is some kind of problem, and possibly hurt feelings. Whether everyone else understands it or not, isn't the point. Sometimes, people need comforting and uplifting. A little compassion goes a long way.
I am very sorry to hear that. Your post have always been kind, and very encouraging to others. I hope that you would reconsider. I personally have always enjoyed reading your post, and visualize what seems to be a very soft, and gentle person.
If there is a problem that has happened on the board, please bring it out, so that is can be fixed. Helen, Barnabas, Margie, Clint, CS Murphy, Bro. Glen and many more, are here to help you if you have a problem.
Some are very mouthy on the board, and I know I can be one of those people at times. But it is never my intentions to set out and to hurt someone. If I am, I should know, that I could make it right. And I know there are others on the board who are the same way. They never mean to hurt anyone. Sometimes they just forget and get wrapped up in the topic.
If you feel uncomfortable discussing this on the thread, at least pm the moderator you feel comfortable with and talk to them about it.
I hope that you will reconsider, but if not I wish you the best always. But my email is posted if you would like to remain email pals.
I am Blessed 16,
I totally agree with your post. I do not intend to be unkind, but if one doesn't like a thread, post, etc., don't read it. If one doesn't like the Board, then by all means leave.
The webmaster and administators and moderators can not please everyone. I do not think it is necessary for them to try.
They have provided an informative, educational, amusing, inspirational board, and I wish to thank them for it.
No one wants to make some one unhappy nor offend them, but remember a person cannot always be responsible for another's reaction based on personal experiences.
If I pulled the plug I'ld post a "Catchyer later" message a week or so before taking off.
When I decided to leave moderating on the Board, I made a statement about it. It was not to judge anyone, but to make it clear that I was not leaving the BaptistBoard and that I thought it was the best forum on the net.
Perhaps when this conflict in the Middle East is over, people will get back on a normal plane, and we will all stop throwing barbs in national directions.
As Jon has said, it may be a forum which originates in the USA, but it is international since it is an open forum. We ought to respect that, and that is all I asked. Freedom does not exist unless we all share that freedom, even the freedom to disagree with a nation's choice, and not to cast dislike upon that nation.
I, obviously, still post and enjoy fellowship on the Board. I stepped down so that should I say something, it is my opinion and not a reflection on the Board. I was thinking foremost of the Board and not myself, but I wanted that freedom to so speak should I decide to do so.
Me too, Probably because people sometimes say mean things about when a person feels they should leave, and I would just die if anyone said anything mean about me. (well, I guess that's not exactly true, since it actually did happen, and I got past it somehow)
Thank you for letting us know you are leaving...very considerate in my opinion. Glad you cared enough to say good bye.
Sorry, you're leaving, I'll miss you on the All other discussions threads. Is there any chance that you might change your mind?
I heard once about a preacher who things just weren't goin' well at his church(sound familiar to anyone)--it was downright bad!
He told his deacons that he and his wife were going on vacation--well, that should have been it--but about halfway through the week of vacation some of the deacons started gettin' suspicious--things just didn't smell right nor look right!
A couple of um "high tailed" it to the parsonage--peeped in the front "picture" window--and you guessed it--not a stitch of furniture in the house!
The preacher had moved out by stealth in the middle of the nite--left a nice neat little note under the telephone that read somewhat like the song that Johnny Paycheck use to sing!! You know what I mean!!
I may have to move (or quit postin')--but dignity and respect(even if the receivin' company is corrupt) I suppose will take forefront--I mean, if they are ugly about it--I want them to know "Hey! I'm gettin' away from ugly!!"
