    There is a tendency for discussions to follow the following format:

    A proposes a thesis;
    B questions the thesis;
    A, unable to defend the thesis, simply ignores any questions and just assumes that as long as you keep gnores the just goes on to make further assertions, as if the thesis stands, or worse ...
    A, unable to defend the thesis, attacks B ...

    Neither of these comprise an argument, nor even a discussion; both are signs of a bad practice, and should be frowned upon. They will not be allowed on the Theology Board.

    If you cannot abide by this simple rule, which is nothing more than common sense and good manners, please take your posts elsewhere on the Forum.

    Well then stop doing it. Instead of expressing righteous indignation, if you want criticize Livergood you have to do it with substance rather than just being insulted and saying obviously wrong.

    Adopt a better attitude. Practice what you preach. Walk the talk!
