Moderation in moderation... a very good thing.

If its about the fine hobby of pipe smoking but not specific to one of the other forums post about it here.

Moderation in moderation... a very good thing.

Not sure what you meant exactly Kats, but at face value I'm taking it as a compliment. Thanks. Moderation in moderation has always been the philosophy here but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

I've let everyone have their say whether it was positive or negative towards the forum, the moderators, or me. I've received complaints for allowing all the dirty laundry to remain in public view, and while that is a concern and can't be good, I feel it more important to let people get things off their chest. No golden calfs here.

At the same time there are rules and they've already been pushed beyond the breaking point by a few. Those who exploring how much farther they can push it will soon find out should they choose to continue their experiment.

Anytime is a good time for a refresher on the forum rules.

Exactly! You just choose to use a whole bunch of words - where I use two or three for you to guess exactly what I'm thinking. :lol:
Yes, now back to "normal". :twisted:

Yes, I could go for a nice relaxing discussion of atheism and why I'm not a Christian. (just kidding, but thought it would be a nice change of pace. :lol: )

Sometimes you just have to put your foot down Eric! If this was my forum, after everything that has taken place today, I might be the only one left in this place. :lol: :lol: Good job cleaning up the mess!

I go along with Noam Chomsky's view of atheists like Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens. They're very religious in their atheism.
