Alfred Persson.

Although he may be back: he has been debating St. John of Damascus (off and on) at his private forum (he is the only member allowed currently). However, he is primarily exegeting Revelations this year (with interesting outcomes).

I was going to say Alfred as well. I tried going by his site that you posted a few replies after the one I am quoting but got an error message.

Ismiliora most definitely, she was one of my favorite posters.

I would say quietmorning but I see her at church a lot and even helped her renovate her house so she doesn't get mites again this winter.

Quinault I see on FB a lot.

There are a few others that I am friends with on FB that I see posts there from often, but I can't remember any of their screen names.

Then, of course, there is me, I only come by when I am bored and have a hit of nostalgia. I don't like the new recent posts at the bottom showing every reply to a thread instead of just bumping that thread to the top.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

He always does.

He just didn't make a point of letting everyone know that he's taking a break, like an adult.

She was a sweetheart.

We will soon be celebrating the anniversary of her passing.  It was right around St. Nicholas day.

She had actually given me some of her recipes to include in a "Ukrainian" cookbook I was making for the parish.

She had a rather tragic life....and yet, was so filled with kindness, joy and peace.

May she rest in peace.

I don't think he was an atheist at all. He was just disappointed that Orthodoxy wasn't more conservative.
I thought I remembered him ending up hating religion and going on about how God is a fraud.

I'd appreciate it if you didn't malign me and call me "an angry little atheist" when I have never been an atheist. If you can't actually remember what your disagreements with me were then don't bring them up at all.

Maybe some day you'll get an actually productive job and won't be able to spend so much of life on this website. I hope so for your own sake.

William took a hiatus, then came back spouting free market ideology and defending Matt Heimbach. I think we already have enough people like that.

Ditto.

I don't recall having any disagreements with you. I always found you rather humorous, and then you spazzed out in a fairly epic way, which was also humorous.

Sadly, I don't spend much time here anymore. But it is awesome that you came back after 3 years to respond to a post from 2015.

I've just gotten busy with other stuff, and my work has cracked down on unauthorized websites because of fear of viruses and whatnot, so I can't get on at work. I still pop on somewhat frequently with my phone to read the threads, but I don't get to post near as much.  :-\

Thanks for thinking of me though!  :)

What do you have to do to get banned in here, just curious, not that I want to go that far.

There are pretty straightforward ways to do it (ahem, Shiny). In orthonorm's case it was arbitrary nonsense.

No, it wasn't.  There was a pretty lengthy list of infractions that was behind orthonorm's banning (so many, in fact, that he had been up for banning at least once before the final time).  Orthonorm at his best was an awesome contributor to the community; at his worst he was very divisive.

Any further discussion / speculation on his banning will be taken as "Publicly disputing moderation," which, as you know, is a violation of the rules.  Want to question his banning (or any other mod action)?  Do it directly via PM with the person(s) who took the action.

He called someone a "mere foil." Also, iirc, Theophania and others believed him when he joked that he had a "dossier" on board members.

...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

That whole episode was a shameful display of meatheadedness for which everyone should be atoning this Lent.

I miss william. He was the funniest angry little atheist that I've come across in awhile. Then he wrote his histrionic screed against everyone and got banned.
I don't think he was an atheist at all. He was just disappointed that Orthodoxy wasn't more conservative.
I thought I remembered him ending up hating religion and going on about how God is a fraud.

I'd appreciate it if you didn't malign me and call me "an angry little atheist" when I have never been an atheist. If you can't actually remember what your disagreements with me were then don't bring them up at all.

Maybe some day you'll get an actually productive job and won't be able to spend so much of life on this website. I hope so for your own sake.
I don't recall having any disagreements with you. I always found you rather humorous, and then you spazzed out in a fairly epic way, which was also humorous.

Sadly, I don't spend much time here anymore. But it is awesome that you came back after 3 years to respond to a post from 2015.

Classic William.  :laugh:

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Feel like torturing her some more?  ;)
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.
