Respect

Post #1

Post by otseng »

One of the main keys to success in a debate forum is respect. You have to respect other people, even if they don't agree with you. And also you have to earn respect from others. Without respect, you might have the most convincing argument in the whole world, but nobody will listen to you.

So, here are some tips on how to earn respect:
- Show respect to others. If you do not respect others, don't expect any in return.
- Abide by the rules. Doing this will get you far in terms of respect.
- Take personal discussions offline. If you need to really dish it out with someone, send him a PM. Don't air it out in public.
- Pretend your English teacher will be grading your posts. If you use bad grammer, incomplete sentences, misspelled words, etc, then you'll get bad marks on your respect card.
- Pretend your Logic teacher will also be grading your posts. If you don't support your arguments with evidence and provide a clear logical thought process, then your Logic teacher will subtract from your respect score.
- DO NOT USE ALL CAPS IN YOUR POSTS LIKE THIS. Use proper sentence case like this.
- Preview your post before you submit it and check for errors, especially unclosed tags.

When you have a Mormon as a moderator, and not just any Mormon, but one who is all over the net with anti-christian comments, is it any wonder that there are problems? Here you have a "debating" Christianity and religion forum, but you have an avowed enemy of Christ and His Body, the Church, moderating. That's nuts, and if you think that's disrespectful to Mormons, it probably is - they are some of the most vociferous enemies of Our Lord and God's Word.

I'm not sure of your intention in joining this forum, but comments like these are contrary to the rules and principles here. If you don't agree with the tenets of the forum and how it operates, I'd suggest finding another forum that suits you better.
