Hi Friends,

Since many of you are not aware that there is more to the site than just the forum, please see our newest article, a reflection I wrote on managing a forum, and the pros and cons of forums. It was something I wrote 9 years ago, but which I never published then; I edited and published it now, partly in response to recent article on Ancient Faith Blogs criticizing forums.

Some Reflections on Managing an Orthodox Christian Discussion Forum

In Christ,
Anastasios

Was this posted in another thread? I think I read this recently.  For the record, I greatly enjoy your site here. It has problems just like everything else where people are involved, but it is really nice to have a place where you can chat with other Orthodox Christians.

Have you considered the possibility that your face is an ad hominem?

And get other viewpoints from other cultures pertaining to Orthodoxy.

blogs criticizing forums-isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yes, it was in reply to the "Finding your way in online Orthodoxy" article, but it didn't garner much response, so I posted it as a separate thread.

Thank you! I plan on making a bridge between the articles and the forum, such that the two are integrated in the future, and comments are threads automatically.
