Really? You might want to look at the dictionary on your way to another
if it goes on long enough. There are several old-timers on the ng, well
informed and helpful but most of whom spout off now and then. We take
turns at being offensive on some issue :o) Stormin's suggestion was a
long way from being "disgraceful". We get most emotional about
top/bottom posting....certain damnation! :o)

If the default is "top post" - just change it for bottom posting.
Why insist on the sig line at the top? Some people in Ethiopia walk
for days to get to a computer. By then all they see is missing parts
of the thread.
The threads are snipped off by the servers, depending on how the
operate and run.
"Goes on long enough".....??? My original question was posted less than
one day with very few replies when Chris / Stormin' started his
bullshit. If you are trying to say that this "wandered from the
original topic", I can only reply that it was, like many of his posts,
a totally unrelated, wise-guy comment, not at all timed when the thread
had "gone on long enough".
And true to the form of a weasel, he never apologies, never replies
directly to a legitimate complaint, but sits back in a smug way
preparing his next verbal turd.
Smarty, are you the same jerk who said this, just yesterday: "For
whatever it is worth, I am a devout religious believer and
practitioner, and also hold strong political beliefs including those on
many topics including guns, abortion, and other areas which are highly
I personally get offended by ootsie cutesie replies that have nothing to do
with the subject, are top posted followed by religious propaganda, and then
include hundreds of lines of dialogue.
But that's me.
"Thread drift" happens. And it usually happens for two reasons. One, the
question has been answered six times, and two, this is the same as a
conversation, and not a structured debate.
Only the married ones. And then only with the spouse.
The sad reality, is that Mormons have plenty of sexual sins,
teen pregnancy, and so on. I hope it's less common than in
the rest of the population. But, I'm not really sure.
It was mentioned in another thread that we should discuss prophylactics, or
the warnings on the packages. I'll add to that the need for public support
for all birth control techniques, including abortion, as the need of a
person might suggest.
