Maybe we can hope that a good influence on the news will come of this.

I dunno....maybe if you read the article...you would find out who he was..

but maybe if you didn't read the article....you could zip your proverbial lip and not comment for no actual -value-

DeniseDenise,

In the past nine months, you have been disciplined three times for inappropriate conduct in the General Fora, receiving a total of 80 formal warning points.  Very clearly, you (and I would say that you are not alone, so this is as much a statement to a few others as you) are having some difficulty understanding the rules of the General Fora.

I will try to explain this in a different way: we never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever criticize other posters or engage in any argumentative behavior in the General Fora.  Never.

Because your last warning in this Forum was 30%, and that did not appear to help, I am increasing this warning to 40% with sincere hope this will be the last time.

You will be receiving a message with more details.  Please carefully read it.

Thank you for choosing OCNet. Your posts are important to us.

Scamandrius,

Your comment is essentially a troll, and trolling, no matter what color the lure is, is not permitted.

You have access to the internet, and could have answered your own question.  Instead you cast a line out and hoped for a response.  You got it.  Twice.

The first hit was from another poster, but the second is from a moderator.  But, it is less like catching a fish and more like snagging the bottom.



You are receiving a 30% formal warning for this violation to the past inadequacies of previous warnings to get you to change your ways and not fish for arguments in the General Fora.  Please carefully read the forthcoming message.

Thank you for choosing OCNet.  Your posts are important to us.

I've never heard of him before, but many years to him and his family!

Wasn't there someone else of note who recently entered the church by traveling to Russia? My memory fails me, but I think he is an actor of Asian descent.
