Abdi, forums tend to have rules in place for a reason - to keep it in order and to make sure members behave in a way that's fair to each other. It's just there to ensure a 'fair' discussion. If you listen to the members of the forum, you'll find yourself connecting with people with opposing arguments a LOT better. Personally, I consider you being sent to the ER as an opportunity for you. Why? Because you might learn something useful if you choose to. If you think you've shed your light, you're actually a long way from it. If you stick around, you might learn more about atheists and why they believe what the believe (or disbelieve what they disbelieve) and what it takes to change it.
I discuss with atheists for YEARS over diverse forums, and have done so before in chatrooms, and have done so, since i converted myself to Christ, over 25 years ago. So i know atheists, how they think, and their arguments VERY well. This forum is a answer to a reasonable number of inquiries and arguments, presented by atheists. The more i go indepth in search, the more i realise how desperately irrational and unreasonable atheism is. But atheism isnt just a position based and deduced by reason, but is in essence a CHOICE OF WILL, and emotions. People have their most diverse reasons to reject God. Ask a atheist ,if he readily would accept the Lord Jesus Christ, and start to follow him, if he would reveal himself , and : well, answer this question to yourself. Most will answer : No. I would not, because he is a monster, and all this stuff. For me, this is a sign, that satan tries to portray God in this way, to let them remain far from him. I have experienced God as friendly and loving, but also just, and willed, to not let any injustice unpunished. God's love for human kind has been proven without any doubt through Jesus sacrifice on the cross. So anyone is excusable, to believe and to justify its unbelief , because God is a sadic tyrann. Who unpartially reads and studies the bible, and truly and honestly seeks God, will find him, and experience his love. Ultimately, God has given enough light to the ones, that truly seek him, and enough darkness to the ones, that reject him.
With your current attitude and outlook, you're not going to get very far and you will find a lot of your time wasted. All this forum asks is that you keep to nettiquette and a good debate ethic.
Says someone, that attacks me personally ?? have you seen ONE post of mine, wher i insulted someone, or made a adhom attack ?
A good number of debate forums ask for the same thing, except when breaking rules, instead of the actions being: 'warn then ER then ban', it's 'warn then ban', or even just 'ban'.
As said. Check the numerous forums, where i posted , and see, if i have been banned, or a moderator interveened for some reasons? Your moderation at your forum is invasive and tendencious. Thats why i left.
We stick people in ER to give them a chance, with the forum members and moderators for support. I am the ER mod and I'm not an unreasonable person - if you want to debate your topics, then reconsider your stance with this forum, or leave.
Look. I have invited anyone, that wishes to continue to debate with me, to do it at my forum. You come and want to teach me here, how i shall behave, and worse than that, you insult me here. who shall learn to behave, you , or me ?
You don't seem interested in sticking around here, all I can say is, good luck with your other forums, but don't be surprised if people decide to: ridicule you, get shirty, be sarcastic towards you or ban you.
Well, i am surprised, because, this happened only at your forum. At other forums, if i get attacked personally, i simply ignore the poster. So, i do not see further reason, to go back to your forum. If you wish to debate with me, you are wellcome here. You are free to post links, and to behave in the same manner, i behaved over your forum. But i will not accept adhom attacks.
