Nice summation of some guidelines for our lives.

Charitable work, a belief system, and doing good for others.

I like it!

These concepts, I’m sure overlap within and are practiced by many credible religions of the world. 

 

Well said, William and Manic, well said.  Haters are just gonna hate.  It's why many support the "Hater-in-Chief"

Thank you for re-directing the wayward discussion.

 

I, for one, would enjoy seeing an explanation from those who profess to be Christian but have difficulty expressing "Christian Values".  Some have asked those who claim to be Repubs to do the same when they express moderate GOP views or demand the same from Centrists.  There really isn't much of a difference.

 

We are blessed to have a Christian here that expresses Christian Values in most all of her posts.  Thank you "Controlled".  We can see by the fruit you produce.

You don't have to give your permission. If someone wants to copy your posts and save them to their computer, they are free to do so. It's similar to being photographed in public. No one needs your permission first.


Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

I realize this is a public site.  What I am talking about is an unhealthy need to store information regarding my posts and those of another Christian.  Re: inserting that a poster said it is OK to rape one's wife.  I was on the site at that time and the man did not say this. This was years ago.   Someone just distorted it.  One poster here who does seem to keep the library stalked me on other sites until I reported him to the person over all the moderators.  I don't find this type of obsession over someone or their posts healthy.  I will state this and stick by the statement.  To those who seem to support everything the guilty party does, I think you are perhaps admiring the wrong hero.  This is a public site, but it is also the responsibility of the owner of the site to keep it safe and open to all who want to come here to express their views.  At this time, I don't find that.  The reason I stay is that I would like to see this cleaned up and actually be a safe site for all seniors to post their opinions without a select few going after the poster no matter what they try to post.  This is true and some of you can deny it, but your denial doesn't hold up.  Take a look, how many new people do you see come to this site? If they dare, they are soon either taken down or don't want to be subjected to the type of treatment dished out here.  I have written on MANY of the AARP sites and we welcomed new posters.  There was no goal to run them away.  Sometimes I wonder just what this site is all about.  Perhaps a hidden purpose.  You would think as seniors we would know better.

@Soosie  Here ya go. This is the information I was referring to.  Oh, I have no idea what the difference is between Social Butterfly and Conversationalist is either but I'm not going to worry about it.  Hope this helps and you have a good day!

This is a public website open to anyone who visits AARP. Nobody on this site has a right to claim their posts are private, belonging only to them. Once you upload a post to a public website, it belongs to the owner of the website. Since it isn't private, anyone can copy or use it again in another thread. .

 

If you're concerned about privacy, don't upload posts to a public website.

 

It's very similar to walking outside and claiming a right to privacy if someone tries to take a photo of you. I'm sorry, if you want privacy, stay home.


Yes, you are correct.  Actually all a person has to do is click onto another poster's name on their moniker in the top left hand corner of one of their postings and a record of their posting can be viewed. Everything here becomes public information.

Hello, Soosie. I believe this answer is in this feed in giving you directions from earlier post about privacy. I really don't know how....probably because I have a big mouth?

Seems odd to me for a true Christian to claim to know what God will say or do. ................It seems odd to me that you would try to point out I am not a true Christian. That is disingenuous, I haven't said that anyone is or isn't a true Christian, nor have I hinted at such. No, I don't know all things about God, And no one "knows all things about God", I am glad that you know that but in studying my Bible I do learn. As do most. If, in your Bible you can show me scripture where is says, "Soosie will be turned away from Heaven because early on when posting here she mistakenly thought a male poster was a female based on his style of writing. It is nothing short of laughable that you would interpret what I said to mean that "Soosie will be turned away from heaven". It is a shame that anyone's understanding of other's words could be so radically distorted. No photo of him was showing. That is the real reason the poster has a chip on his shoulder about this poster. Kind of silly one would think Since I haven't commented on you thinking anyone may be male or female, it's rather odd that you would bring this up. Should I think that you have a chip on your shoulder because you disagree with me politically or may have mistakenly thought that I was attacking you?

There is a poster here who has claimed to "keep a library of posts by most all posters". He is a Conservative (or a supposed Independent). Perhaps he may be able to answer your concerns on this matter.

 

I see nothing in the TOS that prevents anyone from doing so. Once something is posted in a public forum it becomes public information, I do believe.
