From the Religion Moderators page:
The demeanor of the poster says more about his own confession than the post says about yours. When he is being rude or mean it drives people away from his confession and towards yours. That is of course if you can resist the urge to meet fire with fire, in which case neither confession is appealing to the lurkers. The poster who turns the other cheek wins every single time.
If the other guy is throwing spitwads at you on an open thread it probably means he has run out of ammunition. Take it as a backhanded compliment. You won, walk away.
Spiritual maturity is not a prerequisite for posting on the Religion Forum. If the other guy is being childish, be patient with him.
Abusive spammers contribute nothing other than their spam and they dont last long on Free Republic.
THANKS for letting me know that y’all were familiar with that.
It’s virtually impossible to tell from y’all’s postings.
