Ah, you caught me! I thought I could just sneak around here for a while. How about a song by way of greeting?

That's a sign that the B-net ship is sinking. Help

Seriously, glad to have you join us at last, Ken.

No, it's a sign that (once again) Belief Corner is being purged. This time they're going after the atheists. I wasn't there long, but I always sensed something creepy about it. You might want to stock up on cake and punch.

Beliefnet is forever sinking but never quite goes under. I still post there.

The corner suffers from a huge case of cognitive dissonance. I think Acumen likes the idea of the site as he preaches it, but in the end, he is uncomfortable doing, and allowing to be done, what needs to be done in order to accomplish the stated goal.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

I live in the eastern suburbs and teach at the University of Pittsburgh. What part of Pittsburgh (or Allegheny County) are you from, Willowcreek?

Ken, I agree to a certain extent. I don't think it's JUST atheists. I think it's anyone who doesn't toe the "good little xtian" line.

Ultimately, it's anyone whose views aren't in line with Acumen's.

Yes, yes, we got purged as well. Sit down and rest your weary and aching head. Wink

I know. I started making inquiries about that. I was shocked and said so. The thread was quickly locked.

I don't know if you've seen the 'what is this place' thread, but we decided here that sole ownership of a forum can get really messy really fast, so we opted to co-own and operate YSNet. There's an admin panel of 5, an odd number for voting purposes, and bans etc., should they ever need to occur, will be voted on. We voted on the site rules and voted on how things are done. The admin panel are three pagans, a Christian and a Unitic...not entirely a balanced representation but fair-minded nonetheless. Wink
