    So it's more like a business venture to you then - you know, I recently went to your FB and some of you likes are strange. Seems like you like music, restaurants, sports and television but nothing on religion, except you "like" some group called "discuss atheism". Oh, and also the ACLU, Bernie Sanders, Bill Nye, Ellen Degeneris, Mark Cuban and George Takei???

    All makes sense now, see ya.

    I can attest to that! I also have a Christian discussion forum - but often am not spend the proper amount of time in it - thus it is not as successful as BB.

    What is the site if you don't mind me asking? Christian Forums is a beast to work on. I enjoy it though. Lots of great discussions and views on that forum :)

    Brent,

    Your Faith being listed as a Non Baptist Christian almost seems like you are making a statement that you have strong feelings against Baptist. I've seen titles like non denominational, born-again, Jesus Christ, etc. Just wondering if you want to share why the specific title concerning Baptist? Isn't it like saying I'm a Non Catholic Christian, or a Non Charismatic Christian, or a Non Pentacostal Christian, or a Non Arminian Christian, etc, you see what i mean? You made your faith identified in the negative towards a particular group. Blessings!

    Not what the intention was. The reason that option exists is so that we can allow only Baptists to post within the Baptist only sections of the site.

    Oh ok. I didn't know it was an option listed, I thought we just typed in what we wanted. It's been quite awhile since I visited that page. I should have investigated it before thinking the worse. Sorry.

    Nope. Strictly a business.

    Essentially, you and I are only as important to them as the number of times we click on the pop-up ads.

    Nope, If you are a "Site Supporter", you won't see ads.

    Even so, my point that the people who run Christian message boards don't care about the people who post there stands.

    These guys that can mind read are simply amazing!

    Oh, and you're not creating much empathy for yourself with the board owner with statements like this.

    And you clearly are, as evidenced by the fact that the moderators allow you to get away with constant insults and goading.

    It is laughable that you consider that an insult. Lighten up. Do not be a Cranky Christian.
