      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

hate the sin not the sinner

4 posts in this topic

So i'm thinking about this and it makes sense at first, BUT i take a second look and decide, "wait a minute here... It's THE SINNERS CHOICE to do what is right from what is wrong." So that kind of shoots this little tad of info to pieces. Of course this is just a bit of religious thinking and some may not even believe in associating wrong doing as a sin but wouldn't perfection be boring?

I guess the idea is you can deplore/disapprove/ or even dislike the sinner without hating them.

 

Whether you see it as THE SINNERS CHOICE depends a bit on your stance re free will and all that.

I suppose. The problem is maybe i just see things too black and white. But sometimes that's the way they are : /
