The Headache That Just Won't Go Away


One of our community church's attempt to "outreach" is to have a webbased Forum where believers can post...well, just about anything. There's this nice disclaimer that you se eonly when you sign up saying that "we're not responsible for the accuracy of anything on this website". That's not a direct quote, but close enough.


So, being a good Christian wanting to do the unity thing with other area believers, I was a member of this Forum. Under three different names, though not all at the same time. Each time, one certain member or another certain member would be mean. And each time I decided...I don't need this crap. It's not that we all have to believe the same thing, other than the basics about Jesus and such...but they were disputing non-related things...like even bashing me personally because of some of my odd traits [what is wrong with offering up "what if" scenarios anyway?!?!?!] They were even disupting laws of literature!! We're not talking bible doctrine here...they're arguing literature! {what is a parable? apparently it depends on who you ask and literature has nothing to do with it!} So, when one character actually told me to leave the Forum...I obligued and reported him to the moderator. They sleep through all this crap anyway.


So now the Moderator is emailing me, asking me not to leave and things are changing blah blah blah...


I went, I looked, didn't see anything different.


What's the point? I'm just going to stick to blogging and the occasional MySpace and not bother with that Forum. Those confrontations were causing me to loose sleep. I'm not going to go there again. I like my sleep, and working nightshift, it's hard enough to get to sleep before the sun rises anyway...if I'm going to loose sleep over something, it had darn well better be worth it!


At least here, if you don't agree with me...y'all are nice about it...


ok, I feel better now. I'm going to go walk to doggies and head on home...

Such a shame. I tend to avoid stuff like that myself.

It ain't worth it.

Things like that are definately not worth worrying over.
