  • Matthew has it entirely within his power to to grant "mercy to banned users." But, to my knowledge, he hasn't.  So it has meandered along meaninglessly for ages, yet still occupies a top spot on the CI discussion depth chart.  Of course, several of these banned individuals have probably re-inserted themselves with new accounts and different user names.  
    While Matthew did not mention it, during the course of this thread, ggreg resumed posting.  As I recall, he is banned user.  (He has always used that same name.)  I would not be surprised if there were some connection to this thread. Perhaps it inspired ggreg to ask permission to resume posting here.

    I must say I am surprised that ggreg wants to post here, given his many disparaging comments elsewhere about this forum and the Resistance.

  • I think sometimes the totally derailed threads are the most interesting. (That is, if they don't suddenly blow up and spew shrapnel everywhere...)

  • Some threads are better off getting derailed.  This thread seemed to have been started for the purpose of pressuring and/or criticizing Matthew.  

    In general, the people whom he bans have been disrupting the forum.  How is it "mercy" to arbitrarily allow them back? I'm pretty sure that any banned poster who wants a second chance and is willing to change the behaviour that got him banned can contact Matthew and ask for this.  It would actually be mercy to allow them back. Why should Matthew, merely because of the date, invite back problematic posters who are likely to continue being problematic?

    Way back near the beginning of this thread Matthew made it clear that he was not going to act on the unreasonable demand of the original topic.  The thread was effectively over then. Of course, it has meandered all over the place since then.

  • I didn't ask permission.  I just logged back in with the original username and password.

    Waiting for a 3 month contract to start.  I'll disappear soon.

  • Greg, before you disappear again:

    I'm always curious how ggreg will wiggle out of things. Not to my satisfaction, but that of other people's satisfaction.

    This must mean you're a scrupulous intellectual whereas other trads... just get by.
    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • I have seldom ever seen a thread so thoroughly derailed.

    From "CathInfo granting mercy to banned users in 2019", to "Corporal punishment on wives within marriage"

    Could the topics have anything less to do with each other?
    I actually forgot what the thread was about until I saw your post.

  • One or two calls to 911 will put an end to that.

  • Hobbledehoy left CathInfo and then subsequently went back to the Novus Ordo. Amazing how someone with such a treasure of old Catholic books, timeless truth, and inspiring, beautiful artwork could go back to such a banal "mass".

    There is another thread on here with more details about him -- I just remember that "he's not Trad anymore".
