    Hi everyone,

    Just an update that the religious society threads are not designed for debating but for members of religious communities to come together and socialise.

    As a result of these threads becoming derailed and complaints being submitted, any member who posts in these threads to troll or with negative intentions will be issued an immediate temporary ban lasting 24 hours.

    If you spot someone trolling in these threads please use the report function to direct them to the CT.

    Thanks!

    The religious societies include:
    Jewish Society (J-Soc)
    Unitarian Universalist Society
    TSR Buddhist Society
    Hindu Society
    Sikh Society
    Christian Apologetics Society
    The Pagan Society
    The Theology Guild
    Catholic Society
    Deism society
    Quakers
    Christian Society
    Eastern Orthodox Society
    Islamic Society
    Ex-Muslim Society
    Interfaith Society
    The Secular Society
    Atheist Society
    It was about time. Things seem to be out of control over there sometimes. Might be a good idea to put more mods there.

    P.S. I will deffo be reporting you as soon as I see you trolling in the religion sub-forum.

    Bashing religion should not be acceptable because everyone has the right to believe in what they want.

    Yes, I had a brief discussion about all this when the no debating thread was made about things you like about the Qu'ran. We got that taken down but the society threads were stubbornly protected.
    Perhaps a lone voice wasn't enough? If you could show there's enough uproar about the religious societies being in the Religion forum by, say, doing a petition, then you might be more successful? :dontknow:

    Bashing religion doesn't stop people believing in what they want to.

    And pointing out the flaws in religion doesn't count as bashing religion, nor does it stop people believing in what they want to.

    I appreciate the idea, but when it is plain that "no debate" threads by definition do not fit into a "debate" forum, and there is no reason that they can't be elsewhere, with links available from here, I don't see the need for a consensus in the community to make this change. It it obvious to all but biased observers that they should be elsewhere if debate is prohibited.

    That's fair enough, I guess. Though if you're not willing to be more proactive about it, then perhaps you shouldn't be surprised if the CT don't do anything about it? :dontknow: Just my tuppence anyway

    Since they already know the threads are inappropriate here, by leaving them as be with objections having been made enough, they are demonstrating a lack of caring about it / a lack of competency. That means I'm not confident that they'll care/be competent when such a petition is done.

    Fairy snuff :console: I would like to think they'd listen to a petition if you gathered enough names, but perhaps that's just naive of me

    Also, please feel free to PM me or quote me into a news & feedback thread if there are any issues with the site that could be fixed... unfortunately I only just stumbled across this conversation so contacting me directly is good

    You are essentially equating debate with trolling or/and negative intention. Don't say you don't, you just did it right there in your comment. You could have said "anyone who posts in these threads to debate will be issued an immediate ban from the Faith and Spirituality forum."

    Do you admit that you did it?

    Hi Juichiro,

    This sticky was moved over from the Religion forum in D&CA yesterday- I would be happy to change the wording if that would help
