"Threads like this one are most likely to get shut down the most quickly. This is not a complaint forum it is a debate forum. I will not question Blackbird's deciscion to shut down the thread in question. Perhaps he had a good reason to do so. You yourself (King James) had just posted that the topic had gone astray and were thinking of starting another thread. So what is your problem? When people start threads for the simple reason for griping and complaining then they can go somewhere else. I consider this matter closed." Why did you ask him what his problem was and then shut it all down? Basic tenants of discussion boards - People will get off topic. People will be judged by what they post. People will get angry and post angry statements. but also... People will gain understanding of one another. People will become more tolerant. People will extend their prayers and good will towards one another. People need the ability to explain and have continued discussion. That is how things are resolved in a more meaningful way - to everyone's benefit. At this point it just seems you didnt personally care for this person talking about baseball, and then expressing his problem with being called a hell bound heretic (which really - you all should know better than that). So you just cut him off. Last I checked this thread was under the General Baptist Discussions, which is under Baptist DEBATE Forums. That is what I saw out of the person in question - debate. What I saw out of others was name calling.
