toldailytopic: Do you think TOL bans members too frequently, or not frequently enough
TOL Topic of the Day - Chime In!Every day we will post a new topic and we want to get your comments on that topic. The topic could be about literally anything from the vague to the specific, important or trivial. The TOL membership can take that topic and run with it!
We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. - Martin Luther King Jr.

If I had to choose I would probably say not frequently enough.
I believe that the Universe is one being, all its parts are different expressions of the same energy,
and they are all in communication with each other, therefore parts of one organic whole.
This whole is in all its parts so beautiful, and is felt by me to be so intensely in earnest, that I am compelled to love it and to think of it as divine
- Robinson Jeffers
The rules aren't follows that much... so why bother banning anyone?
There is a certain member that posts links to very long articles and never points out the relevant part.. his goal is to subject us to reading everything in the article instead of the applicable part.
I believe that is against the rules... yet he has gotten away with it for years now.
So if you aren't going to enforce your rules.. you shouldn't be banning anyone.
The staff cannot possibly see every post that breaks the rules, which is why we have a reporting system here. If you see a post that breaks the rules report it. If someone has broken the rules they will receive at least a warning, depending on the severity of the offense. If severe enough they will receive an infraction, which could cause an auto-ban if the offense is severe enough to warrant a high enough level of infraction. And if the offense is exceptionally severe, or if they are a repeat offender, they will be banned directly.
I think things are dealt with a nice touch actually.
the left hand taketh away ...
However it seems that right wing, gun waving maddist nut jobs get given a lot of slack.
Those on the left, or who are atheists or secularists have to tread much more carefully.
That's because left-wing, commie wacko nutcase, drooling swine are more inclined to name-calling, profanity and blasphemy. I suspect you would be more pleased if your vulgar prejudices and biases were given free rein.
Why.... no body's free to attack the war until its over? classic...you want to see if it was really won?
Christians victory is not complete unless you serve Jesus faithfully until the end.
Jesus says "if you love me, keep my commandments". Dont forget responsibilities for what He has done for us. Salvation is not cheap. Jesus died for us and Jesus expects His followers to die for Him too. It costs our lives because Jesus dies for us.
Take the topic above and run with it! Slice it, dice it, give us your general thoughts about it. Everyday there will be a new TOL Topic of the Day.
If you want to make suggestions for the Topic of the Day send a Tweet to @toldailytopic or @theologyonline or send it to us via Facebook.
Do you really mean banned or suspended? I ask because a few times I see that someone has been banned and then I see them posting again at a later date.
