Just as the Prayer Forum is to be more devout without trollish posts, could there be a new Forum where the topic matter is more moderated placed immediately underneath this Prayer Forum (general fora) entitled: PRAXIS.

It would be awesome to have Praxis topics on how to pray, how to fast, iconography questions, wearing headcoverings, etc. placed in PRAXIS without unwanted distractions from those who would troll and wreck havoc with off-topic, humorous, baiting, call-out posts, and rude comments. This would be a forum for serious posts from inquirers, catechumens, and Orthodox Christians.

Specifically, I would like to start a thread on this topic and have it placed in PRAXIS, not the Faith forum.

    Abba Ischyrion said, "The men of that generation will not accomplish any works at all and temptation will come upon them; and those who will persevere in that day will be greater than either us or our fathers".

I do not think duplicating FI just because you do not like me is a good idea :*

I did not say that I do not like you.

We need to keep Faith Issues as a discussion and bantering area just like it is. And I will probably still post in there occasionally.

However, I would prefer to see a more sober area called PRAXIS with strict moderation FOR THOSE WHO WANT IT. It would be a safe area much like Prayer Forum where people can discuss problems in their prayer lives, etc. without being interrupted by those who are not so sober and watchful. We can always post a sign outside reading: No drunks welcome. Sober up first.   angel


The best solution is to punish those that persistently do that (I think there are a few) to the uttermost. They will know better next time.

Those who wreck havoc on topics are obviously disrupting and destroying this forum. This behaviour needs to be dealt with, esspecially on the "Faith Issues" forum [edited out attack].

Faith Issues is a lightly moderated area, and it is perfectly fine.

However, it would be awesome to have PRAXIS, a strictly moderated area in the General Fora, where those who want to have serious discussions about living the Orthodox Life and ethos can do so without interferences from those who are having their juvenile moments. I think it is fair to say that we all slip into those unsober moments when we need to let off steam, but let's be more responsible and respect those who want to have serious discussions.

Can't we have one forum that is strictly moderated?

I like your idea, Maria. 

Punishing people, as lovetzatziki would like, "to the uttermost", which seems to me would be being banned from the board, seems way overly harsh.   

There really is nothing wrong, on the whole, with the moderation on this board.

Wonder why admins, gms and normal mods have not as adamant and cocky views how to rule the board. There would be 5-point to-do-list, it would be implemented during some weekend and the board would run smoothly like clockwork.

Why hasn't anyone come up with this already? It's so easy.

I think the talk of moderation or 'banishment' being a 'solution' is over the top. This board just hit a million posts, I doubt anyone really wants to volunteer for that job.

It's up to us to make this a hospitable, but lively place - and to ignore (something I need to do) inoffensive, but off topic posts. However, there is a time and place to complain - just not too often if we work at it.

If someone wants a strictly moderated forum, there is always Monachos.

What makes OCnet so popular is that it is a place where more open discussion can take place.  Sure there are unpleasant posters and some really stupid threads; but that is what happens when you have open discussion.  It's a trade off.  I don't like some of the idiotic things that get said here, but I'd rather put up with that than squelch discussion.

My understanding is that the founders of the forum wanted a place where people could just discuss Orthodoxy without a lot of restrictions.  If anything, I would say it is much more moderated now than it was a decade ago.

Sadly according to the poll thread I see a lot of people who consider this forum a pamphlet and a joke. They like to amuse on the rudeness level expressed on a Christian forum. I thought we were Christians, not barbarians.

Nope. It starts with having you under surveillance. You started your trolling siesta early today. I think the REAL mods(not your friends) should look through your posts and judge how many of them are off-topic mean bickering remarks.

Nope. It starts with having you under surveillance. You started your trolling siesta early today. I think the REAL mods(not your friends) should look through your posts and judge how many of them are off-topic mean bickering remarks.

Maybe it's still early in Denmark. There were times when I posted at 5AM. I appreciate your concern for my bouts of insomnia as well as your good spirits.  Smiley

I thought we were Christians, not barbarians.

"Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. (Colossians 3:11)"

And the point of quoting that is.. ?

Read carefully.

I am still surprised no one has shared this thread
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,45733.0.html

I wonder how man similar threads there had been before. And how would that correspond to "the board downgraded recently" thesis. And that thread was more fun than this.

Wonder why admins, gms and normal mods have not as adamant and cocky views how to rule the board. There would be 5-point to-do-list, it would be implemented during some weekend and the board would run smoothly like clockwork.

Why hasn't anyone come up with this already? It's so easy.

Because it's normal posters that actually make the forum not moderators. So posters opinions/complaints should be taken more seriously. I thought Mods were suppossed to be smart.

I did. I also mentioned the thread on single women where Liza Symonenko posted her views on the matter, and was set upon for her trouble.

Stalin was a dictator.

Taking head of the people's opinion is democratic.

So 'No'.

I read it but I find it unapplying to my post. I'd rather have you explain it and say what you had in mind when you said " I will quote Colossians 3:11".

P.S Fr George why do Mods troll?

Well the majority agrees that there is a certain level of rudeness on this forum but they have different opinions on it. Some of them are just not wise. Or some of them say the same things in different manner even if they vote differently. And the voting has just begun.

No, thanks. I do not read threads about relationships, sexuality, and ridiculous pseudophylosophy here unless I have to.

I have provided an example of a thread full of forum rudeness, as asked for in the OP. Your refusal to read it speaks volumes.

It's not in my section. I do not have to.

Moreover not reading things one does not want to read is better than reading and then whining about them for one's mental health. You should follow that advice and the world will start to look like a better place.

Yes, but does anybody agree with you, what with your demands that we guillotine our resident moderatorial class?

Sadly according to the poll thread I see a lot of people who consider this forum a pamphlet and a joke. They like to amuse on the rudeness level expressed on a Christian forum. I thought we were Christians, not barbarians.
OK whose alt account are you? Give it up please.
