Warning, rant following.....
I don't understand why some reply to posts with anything but what the topic is about. Some even just post a reply that only complains about the topic for various reasons and some of those are to would-be converts. I mean if a topic bothers you because you've seen it before or because you think its stupid then why even read it? Why not just ignore it all together? We're supposed to be Christ-like and I just believe that our reply's should reflect that.
Stepping down off of soap box......
I don't read the Convert Forum posts very much, but I've seen things like this all over the forum, and I think you have a point.
As I suggested, the OP should remain if the Convert Issues area if they would a more moderated environment. The mods (Thomas being in charge last time I checked) do a great job enforcing the rules there and everyone tends to abide by them anyway.
When I am caustic and realize it is convert issues, I delete it immediately.
People here tend to have many problems with social life in RL, that's OK, well if you can't manage an internet board that isn't held hostage to exactly how you want things, RL is never going to get better for you either.
This is a well moderated place. Christiannews or whatever is laughable with the hit and miss moderation.
Sorry, but I know the mods here take their jobs seriously and spend much time doing their jobs according the letter of the law set down here. Show a little gratitude.
And as a user, if you don't like a place, change it. I've been doing internetz for decades and have been hearing this stuff since day one, so here I offer you all what works if you don't like the content on a group or board:
Post higher quality content than what you find lacking.
Post most often.
Ignoring behavior you don't like is the best way to punish it.
Look at me, after all this is what this thread is basically about, so you are looking over here. I change this place in ways I think is better. The sanctimonious, uninteresting, non-challenging time suck that many threads can be get around here are altered often with a post or two by me into something I find more interesting.
Guess who is primarily responsible for doing that? The folks who complain about it. You offer the content I want. You just gotta be made to produce it.
I am not the only who is capable of doing this: Gebre, Habte, Achronos, Icondule, Isa, Romaios, PtA, William, JamesR, Marc, LBK, pasadi just quickly off the top of my head are able to do this as well in their own ways. And I don't like the content necessarily they provide or provoke.
If your post count on a board is above a few thousand posts and you are not able to control the flow of a board or your own reactions to it, some self-reflection is in order.
In short, be interesting. Not everyone can be. And not everyone is going to tell you are.
