"This is not about Logos Bible Software; let's discontinue this thread."

G'day Matt...I was just trying to put a little humour into it, but I was taken the wrong way (typical Aussie trait)...however, the subject of this thread began off topic (Logos Bible software).  I'd like to concur with what one Italian volcano said to another Italian volcano...to all L4 users..."I LAVA You!"

Matthew C Jones:

"This is not about Logos Bible Software; let's discontinue this thread."

Esther 4:13-14

13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

 

 

2 Peter 3:18  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

I would have liked to have seen Bob use the word 'statistically' instead of 'traditionally.'  Geeked

Sometimes I just think funny things.

/threads could be redirected there by the MVPs.

I have volunteered for many things in my lifetime (US Navy, submarine duty, etc), but I am not a volunteer to supervise these forums. No

This is not the purpose of the MVP program, and this one does not want that job. I don't mean to sound harsh, but I want to emphasize that any hint of thread control by MVPs is not an acceptable solution to the problem of abusive posters.

Moderating is NOT fun, that much I know.  But moderators don't have to make the rules, they are there to enforce them.  The rules we have right now, are short, sweet, to the point and above all—WISE!  Let's not screw up a good thing here.  Anyone with ANY sense KNOWS this is NOT a good forum for theological discussion.  DON'T THEY?  I'm more than a little unclear about whether we have new, unposted rules, or not.  Can I now tell everyone exactly how I feel about a certain 'Reformed' grunge pastor from Seattle, or more precisely, his method? *I* don't even want to hear what I have to say on the subject.  If I feel the need to voice my opinion, I'll do so elsewhere.  Logos Forums are the perfect place to talk about Logos software and that's about it really.  Shoot, I've even been shot down here for asking if a given resource is faith-filled.  I wasn't even asking if it was faith-void.  But the answers to my simple, sincere, uncharged question has implications all by its lonesome.

And I didn't volunteer to be a hall monitor in a Pre-School.  I love my Logos software and like to talk with others about it. I don't care for sports, multi-level marketing, or conspiracy theories. I just want to learn how to better use Logos for Bible study.  Now if Bob would give me all Logos resources for free, I'd gladly spend 40 hours a week baby-sitting.

I like theology.          
                                 I like different tribes.   
                                                                             I like dogs.

It is those automatic cat statements I can't stand.      Woof!

My cat wouldn't tolerate the dogs - till his best friend (cat) died and he was lonely.  Then he realised he needed to make friends with the dogs, who'd been longing to have him as a friend..  I'm not sure whether or not this is relevant to this forum?

I think it's relevant. If I were the last "Real Christian" standing ... If there were only Calvinists left on the earth, I suppose I would have to socialize with them. Stick out tongue

Actually, you confirm one of my implied points very well, Jack. 

Whether the LoPD (Logos Police Department) consisted of volunteer MVPs or paid Logos workers, it would be a thankless job and one that would be subject to all sorts of criticisms once they start to enforce the rules by killing threads and censuring people.  It's part of the reason that I think Bob's laissez-faire-but-please-act-like-mature-Christians approach is the best. 

My only modification is to recognize that human nature, being what it is, is still going to produce squabbles and bickerings and divisions among a small percentage of forum users.  But rather than kill a post or a thread, I suggest moving it to another corner of the forum world where they can debate, fight, hiss all they want.  And if the current slate of MVPs do not want the role, I am sure it wouldn't be difficult to find a small group of users who would be willing perform the function so that the they (the MVPs) can continue to do the fine job they do supporting the software in the forums.

Please forgive me if I sounded like I was trying to volunteer you or anyone else.

How would you prevent the inflamed passions, tempers, hurt feelings from spilling back into the main forums?

No problem. Just wanted to make sure everyone knows that I am not a volunteer—even if I believe some moderation is needed.

Please stop being the second party that turns an unkind post into a flame war.

Wouldn't it be great if all the people who waste their time and energy on petty things put that time and energy into Bible study?

I do not want to moderate the forums. I do not want to pay someone to moderate the forums. I am opposed to deleting or locking threads because it's pointless: the person who must make their voice heard will find other ways to do so. And the person who would respect the shut down doesn't need to be "deleted," only told. And I want to spend our resources on building tools, not hiring hall monitors for the forums.
Since the linked posts have been deleted, It would seem that you have changed your policy ... AGAIN?

Chris, perhaps Bob is interested in continuing the discussion. If not Bob is available via email at Bob@logos.com (try getting Bill Gates to respond to email). Maybe that is the way to get an answer directly from him.

I will say that I can't help but feel your response is an attempt at creating yet another discussion that has nothing to do with Logos Bible software or using Logos for Bible study. You may not mean it that way but that's how I perceive it. Please don't expect me to argue this point. I'm not interested in arguing, just in trying to help you gain another user's perspective.
