Devin, in response to "slow clap", if this was sarcasm please read the purpose of the Convert Issues and consider how you responded and may be in violation of Convert issues Forum. Please stay within the Convert Issues Forum purpose to avoid further moderation.
"The purpose of the Convert issues forum is to provide a a place on the OC.Net where inquirers, catechumen, and newly converted could ask their questions about the Orthodox Faith in a safe and supportive forum without retribution or recrimination. Many of those posting in this area are ignorant of Orthodox teachings and are using this forum to understand what are the basic teachings and practices of the Orthodox churches. Due to the simplicity of many of their requests and responses, direct and simple answers with sources if possible are most helpful.
If the moderators find that the discusions become faith or jurisdiction debates, the topic will be split and sent the appropriate OC.Net forum to continue the discussion or debate. As a poster,You may also ask that a topic be split so that a private discussion can be established to go into detail about the issues that you feel adamant about and wish to debate or discuss. The convert forum is not a place for combative debate or arguement.
Thank you for your following these guidelines to the edification and spiritual growth of the forum inquirers, catechumen, and newly converted."
Sarcasm would fall in a violation of the spirit of this forum. Debate or discussion that falls in this area of response should be taken to the other forums where this is allowed.
