If someone doesn't want strict moderated rudeness than HE IS HERE FOR THE WRONG REASONS!

"Then"!

A better board starts with better spelling.  :police:




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.

"Surveillance"??? ::)  What do you think this is, some kind of internet police state??  "Trolling" :o ::) ??? and Romaios? :o :o  You really gotta be kidding!!!  The ONLY troll-like behavior  I've noticed in this thread, is from you lovetzatziki. 

By the way, moderators on this board are NOT trolls.  Trolls may wish they were moderators, so they can impose their neuroses on others and shut people down who they don't like, but I don't see that happening any time soon.  Thank God.  :P

It is funny that the people who complain the most of trolling on meanness seem to be the people who do it the most.  The lack of self-awareness is probably the most humorous part of this whole thing.  :laugh:
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

His beard needs to grow about six more inches to cover everything.

Forgive me. Perhaps I was a bit too pithy. I should have stated that I have no objections to the gentleman's photo provided by TheTrisagion. Although there are certainly gentlemen who would be well advised to keep it under wraps.

I missed this.  I feel better now that I have been singled out.  It is as if all my hard work has now been acknowledged, and I am honored to be recognized by the chief humorist.

Thank you William.  Your support is much appreciated.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
