    I deleted a thread

    I just deleted a thread. I believe it started innocently enough, but it degenerated into a discussion about other Naznetters. Let's not talk about one another in ways that are critical. I have no problem with asking other Naznetters about themselves, but if they don't choose to respond, just drop it. Everyone is required to post under their own name, but no one is required to go through cross examination to participate here.

    Thanks, Dave. I hope my attempt at a little light-hearted humor wasn't construed to be a part of the problem. It was meant to lighten the dialogue. By the way, I agree (as one who has no financial stake in a service which you provide -- and I enjoy) with your explanation above. Makes sense to me. Thanks.

    Glenn, to be clear, I didn't read the whole thread. There was no particular post that bothered me. It was just the idea that we were talking about people by name in a critical way in a thread in which they weren't participants. The few posts I read implied that something was wrong because they have not answerd questions about their personal life. Naznet does not allow anonymous posting, but we don't require anyone to reveal personal information unless they want to.

    We're definitely not CIA But it appeared difficult to talk about, and there was much misunderstanding. I'm very thankful you deleted the thread.

    Maybe we should add a NazNet rule -- "No waterboarding allowed."

    It seems it may have been my curiousity about several with the same name as some folks I know but not by any of the names being used.

    Wel, I do know two Jim Franklins, but I'm pretty sure no one knows two Greg Farras.

    A little waterboarding is good for you. It'll put hair on your chest.

    My Dad is dead now but when he was still alive: Many people assumed there was only ONE Nazarene Pastor named Wilson Deaton. Those people were wrong and their assumption sometimes caused confusion (even at HQ, now GMC)...

    There was another Scott Moseley roaming my neighborhood in Richardson / Garland TX . He even had the nerve to use my Dry Cleaners ! He had pretty good taste in clothes too and strangely we were the same size. He probably wasn't as happy with the trade as I was !

    Wow, I must have been waterboarded a lot then. Ooops, maybe there are some pieces of personal information that should stay off of NazNet.
