A Simple Sinner

Fair enough. Let's move on.

Ed Peters

Yup.

I'm going to speculate that many of the people who comment anonymously don't bother to read DA RULZ. I hope I'm wrong.

Tom

They are not to post comments while leaving the "Name" field blank.

Can the form not be changed to make "Name" field required? Other forms work that way for that reason.

For a blog that does not have some kind of commenter registration requirement, I think this one generally is very congenial.

Bob

Excellent additions to da rulz...and speaking of good rules, it brings to mind some opinions I wanted to put out there regarding Latin, the Bishops, and traditionalism.........

Brian Day

Must...resist...

...some opinions I wanted to put out there regarding Latin, the Bishops, and traditionalism...

Uh...mmm... So how about that Bishop Trautman?

Aaaaarrrrhhhh! Sorry, I'll go away now. :-p

Thanks. I've really wanted to avoid implementing a registration requirement, but I've tried to maintain a congenial atmosphere. That's the reason behind Da Rulz. Having clearly posted rules for discussion helps maintain a good environment.

(JP2 said something similar in his intro to the Code of Canon Law.)

I also try to let people have a chance when they've violated the rules so they get a sense I'm willing to work with them and let them have their say. I won't ban someone just because I disagree with their viewpoint. I think that helps generate a reciprocal willingness to follow Da Rulz since they know I'll let them have their say as long as it's done in the right way (e.g., on-topic and politely and at reasonable length).

I am a touch disappointed, though, that in all the years I've had Da Rulz, nobody seems to have noted the cartoon connection they have.

Oh, well. :-)

Sharon

What cartoon connection?

tom

Jimmy,
completely off topic here: just noticed you often use "CHT" as shorthand for what's usualy called a hat tip.I've never seen that, what's the origin of that?

Also, it kind of makes me laugh because it's a common shipboard designation for systems involving #2 (i.e. the "stinky hose" that removes sewage from Collection Holding Tanks)

Tim J.

"...in all the years I've had Da Rulz, nobody seems to have noted the cartoon connection they have..."

Does it have anything to do with floaty crowny things?

MaryBeth

Wanda-- Timmy, according to the rules...
Cosmo-- Who cares? C'mon, champ, wish up that super-bomb!

lol

Another Tim

Tom:

Look at Jimmy's picture -- CHT stands for cowboy hat tip.

Tim

I guess Jimmy thinks authors of the Bible are rude -- many books where they didn't "sign it."

Mike Petrik

"I guess Jimmy thinks authors of the Bible are rude -- many books where they didn't "sign it."

No, he just thinks that his blog is not inspired Scripture.

Scripture isn't remotely like a comment box either. So that comparison is flawed

Thank goodness - I'd hate to see the combox of God's blog. How many trolls would there be, claiming that His blog was a fake because He doesn't really exist.

Then there would be those who aren't sure if the blog's author really exists.

Then there'd be a bunch of people claiming that some other blog is really God's blog, and anyone who believes differently is going to 404.

Then you have those that do believe it is really God's blog having different interpretations of God's version of "Da Rulz", as well as those saying that Rule 1 is critical but Rule 20 is optional, while Rule 5 is meant figuratively, not literally (even while taking a literalist view of the other rulz).

... all because God just wanted to make captions on a funny picture from His Universe.

Brian

ha ha, great post Jamie

Suzanne from Okla

I have noticed there is more than one Suzanne who posts. I will now be forever known as Suzanne from Okla. here. That only unfortunate thing is now you will know which one isn't the brightest (me!).

But the Talmud is. :)

Anonymous Humanoid

But I just got a new hobby horse for Christmas :(

John

Jimmy

I will try my best, and I thank you for your patience with me

If I get out of line please let me know as I am passionate about the faith as we all are here and I dont think anyone here has malice

You are true to your word

God bless you

Some say 403 or 500, so there's debate there too :)

SLowboy

God bless you John,

Ah, so how 'bout them Redskins?

Ah, but how do we know there even really is a blog? Perhaps the blog we think is God's blog is just a figment of our imaginations... ;-)

And yes - in all seriousness - may God bless you, John.

Now let's talk about Justin Verlander's recent no-hitter...

Jamie Beu

Ah, but how do we know there even really is a blog? Perhaps the blog we think is God's blog is just a figment of our imaginations... ;-)

yes, I forgot to include the nihilists, who even while denying the blog even really exists, will continue to post because it doesn't matter.

Then you've got the whole group of people who think that the blog is only written by 1 person versus the group who believes it is actually a group effort of 3 people who act and think alike.

Finally, let's not forget those that believe the blog started on its own, through the course of random events.

David B is Bach!

The Apocalypse is come. no rudeness in a combox?! unheard of ! absurd!
