In March, of this year, I agreed to set this particular room of the forum as a room for ex-Christians to chat without the input of our forum regular, Didakiton - Ian. Ian is a theologian who has valuable knowledge of, and history with, Revival churches and was an invited guest on this forum who's input has been valuable to many.

Due to the forum's 'playing field' becoming uneven, Ian opted out of contributing to the discussions and thus it has been for the past five months. Some people were delighted at the forum sans Ian, and others were quite miffed. Some regular members decided to delete their accounts and not return. At least one of those members will be asked 'not' to return, thank you - bridge's well and truly burnt :)

Anyway, after some time and reflection I have come to understand why Ian reacted as he did, and would like to openly invite him to feel free to use the forum as a whole. I want to stick to the promise I made some time back that Ian is always welcome to use the forum here.

I doubt Troy will want to butt heads... many of us know how that feels and avoid it. Please refrain from baiting any members who would choose not to converse.

Be respectful guys, hey?

Well that was embarrassing!

I've been away from here for so long that I forgot to log in!

God bless,

Ian

Unkoolman emailed me today to tell me about his desire to let Ian Thomason return to the forum. I have summarised my response to him below:

You do what you gotta do but I know for my own sake that I can't be a part of the forum if he comes into the ex-Xian room.  It's bad enough the way he badgers me (and others) in the chatbox. I'm not spitting the dummy, rather just telling it like it is from my perspective. I think it's a mistake to let him dominate again, but it's not my decision to make.

I need to make this clear, it's not about me having a tantrum or setting an ultimatum. Truly. You do what you want/need to do and I'll simply respond as I need/want to. And there'll be no bad feelings between you and I. You run the forum and so these decisions are yours to make. I won't attempt to manipulate you or your decision. I think it's best that I stop reading and posting on the forum. It's better I just bow out and make a total break...for my own sanity  ;) 

I might focus on that blog idea I told you about as that may be fun. When I launch that then perhaps you could promote it for me on the forum .  :)

So folks, this is goodbye. To be honest, I was wondering about how good it was for me to be here since Ian reappeared in the chatbox some weeks back. So, I won't be hanging around but there is a link to my blog at the bottom of every page, so feel free to drop by and say hi.

I will now lock this thread so it doesn't become a bitch-fest after I'm gone.  Unkoolman, let this be my dying wish and please don't reopen it. But go ahead and strip me of my moderation powers.

Best of luck with it all.

Troy
