  • As far as info goes, what's on fisheaters that can't be put on this site?  I'll help.  We don't need to re-create the wheel...

    I don't even know what kind of volume of information we're talking about. I'm probably the wrong one to ask, because -- through no virtue of my own, I simply never needed online Trad Catholic resources to re-educate, re-discover, or bolster knowledge of the Catholic Faith. I was born into it. It was all God's grace, but it doesn't change the fact I never panted after the fabled Fisheaters "main site" resources as the hart panteth after the fountains of water.

    So I couldn't tell you how many pages, what they are about, and how many were personally written/edited by Tracy herself. She might have spent some considerable time on it; I don't know. Others could probably give better details than I.

    I would point out that taking content SHE wrote and posting it on your own site would basically be stealing. I wouldn't advise that. But famous prayers, Church docuмents, papal quotes, etc. could be copy-pasted, as those weren't created by her. You would just have to replace ANY and ALL commentary with your own.

    BUT AGAIN: if Tracy could do it, then MANY OTHER PEOPLE COULD AS WELL. She wasn't particularly well-trained in the Faith, at least compared to many Trads, when she wrote them. She has no formal theology/philosophy training, no seminary training, etc. If it just requires a housewife with lots of free time, aren't there any others like that? Is Tracy the only one in all of traddiedom? Really?

    Of course I'll tell you this: the static "information" pages of Fisheaters.com, besides being on Tracy's PC, are also in Archive.org (the WayBack machine) so those are almost certainly safe. It's the forum that can't be archived by an archiver -- it's not just plain text pages. Archive.org, or any web crawler, can't just download and back up your whole MySQL database :)

  • I honestly know nothing about it.  I never went there deliberately, but just perhaps once or twice following a link.
     
    I spend all my forum/online time here on CI.  I did some time ago spend some time at Catholic Answers, but I never lasted more than a week before getting banned.  :laugh1:
    Ha.  Before finding CathInfo, I was a member in both places and was banned in both places. :laugh1:

    There was a rare time when I also googled for something and a Fisheaters link came up.  I might check it out, but I never used it.  Quite honestly, I think many people can do just fine finding good Catholic material WITHOUT Fisheaters.  I know I did.

    I don't doubt that a few such individuals exist -- but I know that they won't get far. 

    This isn't a liberal Catholic forum.

  • “Liberal Catholic” is a contradiction in terms.  If someone is Catholic, he isn’t liberal; if someone is liberal, he isn’t Catholic, no matter what he claims.

  • It's a shame that such information couldn't be put up on another website. I doubt there was anything unique; Tracy is not a priest, much less a theologian. If she DID personally write anything, then any layman could do just as well. She has no seminary training, theology degree, Sacred Orders, etc.

    She was writing Catholic information and putting it on her website? Or just uploading books by others? Obviously she shouldn't be writing any theological content of her own, and nobody should read such material either. :facepalm:

    I consider that goes without saying. They consider themselves Catholic, but that doesn't make it true. There ARE objective minimum criteria for being a Scotsman, as it were. So it's not some kind of fallacy.

    That’s why I am here. A lot of the info was helpful to me when I was beginning my conversation, but the forum was the strangest.

  • FishEaters Forum (only lurked) did have one gem. Did because the poster actually died; Tim. He actually lived before the Council and told stories about it from what I remember. The rest of the website and the owner is... suspect. Seems to be easier to get banned from there than anywhere else.
    Luke 1:41 -- And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.

    Well, CathInfo has/had a few gems as well. Men and women who lived before the Council aren't down to the single digits yet or anything.
