My thread "Why I do Not Push the Sede Position" is a perfect example of a subject of discussion turning into a food fight. Except for like 3-4 postings, everything posted in the 5 pages after my OP has nothing to do with the OP. Someone mentions baptism of desire of the catechumen, which has nothing to do with the thread and another one about the sede position in general and then from there starts a food fight about personal issues between the posters.
My OP is not a big deal, but if the OP were a really important teaching, it would have been totally obscured by the chaff that comes afterwards, ALL from unfocused minds whether purposeful to obscure, or done unknowingly.
Here’s my advice from years of experience, stay focused on the subject, ignore personal attacks against you. Do not respond to postings that have nothing to do with the subject of the OP. Do not respond to women who debate (No problem answering the ladies who ask questions sincerely). Some men debate like women, taking everything personal, do not let them get your goat, they are like children. Would you debate with a child?
