I learned a valuable lesson last night on posting my opinion, interpretations, and thoughts on the Baptistboard - well, anywhere online. I've had people before ask if they could quote me in various places and I've said yes. Of course, they can. I've quoted many posters here and elsewhere myself - in Sunday School mostly. I always give credit. I've had someone not connected with the BB if they can quote an entire lengthy post of mine in their blog. Well, OK. Last night, I was looking for commentary on a particular subject. I know what I believe about that subject and have the scripture to support it and years ago, put a lengthy post about it here, but I wanted to hear what others have to say. I always want to know what other have to say and see what scriptural information I may be missing or even misinterpreted. We all make mistakes in that area. When I look for things that I've said here or things that YOU have said here in the past, I always go to Google and type in site:Baptistboard.com [insert member name] [insert catch phrase]. But last night as I was looking for other commentary, I just typed in the catch phrase. As I was scrolling down the first page, the third entry was from a prolific blog of a woman that I didn't know. I saw a sentence in the description that looked familiar. I clicked to read the blog and the woman had quoted an entire post of mine from years ago (giving "Scarlett O" credit and linking to the Baptistboard.) to support her blog that day. Although she agreed with me, there was one small section where she disagreed and said so and why. I said all of that to say this very important (to me anyways) thing. That small section where she disagreed with me, I disagreed with MYSELF. :tonofbricks: I can remember writing that several years ago and thinking, "You know, I haven't worded that paragraph well, it's not coming out saying exactly what I intended for it to say. Oh, well, I'm in a hurry and anybody at the BB who talks to me will know what I meant." Well, she didn't. She isn't from here. She just took me a literal face value. She had no idea that I was "in a mood" that day. I think we all need to remember, myself included, that untold people across the world are reading what we say here. Search engines bring people here when looking at various topics. We need to temper ourselves and say what we mean and mean what we say and be precise in our words.
