I ennable nothing. I am not a moderator. I am part of the community, and I daresay I have done a lot more to improve things here than Snotball Simon Belmont. Indeed, it was I who helped agitate for Universal Rule #7 in response to things that occurred in a disagreement I had with Doctor Scratch. It did not make me a popular guy, but I toughed it out. I just love how know-nothings like you cruise in full of a sense of their own righteousness and disdain for others, ready to tell others what to do and acting as they know the first thing about whom it is they address. You need some serious schooling, Baby Simon.

As have I, ignoramus. I have taken crap from apologists and critics. Really, what you are all about is an agenda to end criticism of Mormonism, which you view as entirely inappropriate. You want the world to be like the inside of the COB, where the GAs are treated like perfect gods and everyone rushes around to wipe their fannies for them without so much as a peep when a GA acts like a tool.
Sorry, Baby Simon. Outside of the corridors of LDS power, people do not cower and refuse to criticize. And it is all for the better. In fact, the Church owes its critics a hell of a lot. The critics do not allow Mormons to remain complacent, which they surely would do, if they were not challenged a little and prompted to reflect on what they do now and then. The critics are one of God's gifts to Mormonism. You are just too blinded by your Mopologetic agenda to realize that.

Sure you can. March right on over to MA&D and see how well you tolerate them. You'll be free of any of the rudeness you encounter here. Oh sure, rules will be selectively applied--applied in accordance with the whims of individual moderators and the celebrity of the participant--but you won't have to look at dirty words, naughty avatars, or unflattering depictions of your religion. My guess is that you'll do swimmingly, and I will lose what little respect I have for you.

Well, Baby Simon, virtus
is not turning your tail and running when you see that the enemy is holding a gladius and not a wooden practice sword. You want to fight with wooden swords in a playpen where the LDS moderators swoop in to make sure that Spartacus doesn't bruise your pretty little face. Go ahead and run little boy, and we will lose all respect for you. Stay here and take your beating like a man, instead of whining about it, and we just may think you have something.
