Thread too hot for freethinkers (evidently)

Greetings all,

I started a thread here yesterday titled 'Are freethinkers allowed to think a Creator exists?' Evidently the powers that be didn't want any freethinkers to think too freely so apparently it was deleted, at least I can't find it.

Most annoying is I was given no explantion or an e-mail explaining why it was deleted.

I guess there are just somethings freethinkers should be protected from thinking about.

Quite a few people including me didn't think that topic was too hot to post in.  I found it easy enough.

Topics are moved all the time to the appropriate forum.  I don't understand why sometimes it will read "topic was moved" and sometimes it doesn't have a link to get to. But we don't go sending everyone emails when a topic gets moved.  Can you imagine how time consuming that would be?

I think there's a mod

I think there's a mod button for "leave shadow" or something like that.  Maybe that's how you leave the "thread moved" thingy?  This belongs in mod forum, but maybe that's the answer.

Oh, and drew, the general forum clearly states that threads can be moved without warning.  (Please read all the instructions completely before beginning the test...)

Feel free to apologize to the "powers that be" at any point.

Making the shadow thread not only eats extra server space, but it defeats the purpose of moving the thread, please don't use the shadow function.

It's the responsibility of members to find their own posts in their account tracker (my account button) and post in proper forums.

 

Lastly, I love exposing ASSumers (it lets us know where were at), and inability to follow and read rules has exposed quite a few ASSumers. Anyone up for ASSuming there is a God? Eye-wink

Never have I ever had sex

Never have I ever had sex with the shadow button.  If I did that, I'd be taking away a chance for the ASSumers to shine

Freethinkers post in Atheist vs. Theist, which is where you shuld be posting. Freethinkers have conversation amongst themselves in Freethinkers forum.

 

DREW, familiarize yourself with our rules:

Quote:
Cross-postings, hit-and-run proselytism, and other posts that create unreasonable janitor-chores for the moderators may be removed without notice and sanctioned either by exile or temporary ban depending on the nature of the spam at the call of the moderator.

New threads should be posted in appropriate forums.

The heading for

The heading for freethinkers anonymous is

A haven for those who are without a belief in god, to discuss and the theorize, think freely, and debate any issue. No taboo issue in here.

I guess I took no taboo literally. It seemed like the logical place to discuss the issue if by definition a theist can't be a freethinker. It lead me to ask if freethinkers were free to think there is a God or are forbidden to think that freely.

I read the rules link. What specific rule did I breach?

We've got a very simple

We've got a very simple request, as I referred to in the two rules I quoted.  Please just post threads that you want to address to atheists in the atheist vs. theist forum.  You're very welcome here, we would just like to have a special home for us.

I would agree with sapien

I would agree with sapien about having a specail home. Some times it just makes you want to tear your hair out listening to you theists. So we need a place to relax.
