    I wanted to call this thread "Bannable Offenses", but it didn't look right. I spell checked it and "Bannable" just doesn't cut it. Oh well.

    So I was reading the TV thread and noticed that many of the posters were banned. What causes an individual to be banned (I'm not looking for specifics on each banned poster, but an idea as to what would get someone banned here).

    I'm on my best beahviour, though, so no worries here :smilewinkgrin:

    They are banned when they consistently break the rules. Name calling, questioning someone's salvation and promoting certain heretical beliefs will get them banned. They usually have a few warnings before they go.

    What did you just call me?

    How do you know I am saved?

    Having a tv and then justifying the trash on it by various carnal means is heresy!:thumbs:

    This reminded me of a song I used to listen to about Cain. It was called "Can't get blood from a turnip".

    "Posting Rules" are at the bottom of each page. Breaking these rules continously (even after a warning) will get you suspended for 10 days. If you break the rules when you come back from suspension...you will be banned.

    Contrary to popular belief - we do not like to ban people. Sometimes it has to be done for the greater good.

    Another 'contrary to popular belief', no one person can ban anyone. It is brought up in the mod forum, discussed, and voted on. A banning takes a majority vote.

    I think all green, stinky vegetables are worthy of banning. Carrots, squash and potatoes are all good, but green veggies, spinach in particular.....yuk!


    Oh, you meant people. :smilewinkgrin:

    I hope so [nervously sniffing underarms]. LOL!

    Try Spinach in a green smoothie. It's fabulous! I don't like spinach, but I like green smoothies.

    Unfortunetly, I know of 2 groups whom the "administrative council" has deemed worthy of being banned as heretical...who arent. They may see things differently that Baptists do, but these 2 groups are not heretical imo, and in the opinions of many others.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    (btw, I am not part of either of those groups. I'm a Baptist and happy to be one.) :thumbs:

    Spinach,

    I wonder if you were a fan of a particular cartoon character when you were a little kid growing up? :wavey:

    I have been off of the Baptist board for a while and upon returning, was surprised to see so many banned?

    Did we go through a time of pruning? A lot of old familiar faces are gone.

    Some just get tired of posting. Others no one seems to care.

    Heretics (Greek word is "schizmatic" or one causing division) by teaching false doctrine have been banned en masse. Others are asked to post in non-baptist forums (about 1/3 of the BB is for any Christian)

    So we've waved goodbye over the years to a group of Catholics, to a bunch of millennial exclusionists. to some Seventh Day Adventists. But mostly it is an individual matter.

    You post vile language, you're banned immediately. But as Ms Sue said, most get way too ample warnings and leniency (I'd ban some right away if it were my prerogative) and put up with name calling, false doctrine, a spirit of antichrist and some bitter looney-tunes.

    Some posted on this thread!

    Really saddens me to see the name of our Lord sullied by the conduct of some on the BB. Attitudes of arrogance and hate or just plain stupidity.

    They shoot horses, don't they? :saint:

    Apparently, "Yep!" They do.
