Moderator Musical Chairs
« on: November 26, 2013, 11:52:40 AM »
Good morning denizens of OC.net!

Per the request of the affected parties, we are hereby announcing a moderator trade: the Faith Issues forum will trade Michał Kalina to the General Fora (esp. Christian News) for Mor Ephrem and a 2014 draft pick (to be named later).  Both boards seem to be pleased with the trade; agents for the affected moderators could not be reached for comment.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

This isn't going to be like that trade involving the 1962 NY Mets, where they received a catcher in exchange for a player to be named later and were so dissatisfied with the catcher that they sent him back as the player to be named later?

Who's on first, what's on second, etc....
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I note the distinct absence of "Axios" or "Axioi".  ;)
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Boy do you have your hands full now that you're mod of Faith Issues  ;)
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
