That description could apply to any significant group of Catholics, of whatever "persuasion" of the Trad world. Any REAL, unfiltered, outside one's "safe zone" or "bubble world" cross section of Catholics is going to look, sound and act exactly like CathInfo.

The alternative would be that I personally attract more than average stubborn, weirdos, Feeneyites, Flat Earthers, etc.

But I have to reject that possibility, since I'm not Sede, Feeneyite, and I'm certainly not sold on Flat Earth. And personally, I constantly preach "a return to basics" of the Traditional Movement, to a time when Trads kept everything in perspective and there were a lot less artificial divisions/categories in place. So if people were following my lead, they would be getting along with each other, not fighting like cats and dogs.

So I can only conclude that such is what you find in the average Trad Catholic today.

CathInfo is the St. Mary's, KS of Trad forums.  That is to say, it's like everywhere else, only there's 50X more of EVERYTHING. More learned members, more news, more information, more idiots, more trolls... you get the idea.

CathInfo isn't hosted in heaven, nor do heavenly citizens get to sign up for accounts. We're all fallen human beings here, born in Original Sin, baptized but still bearing the wounds of Original Sin on our souls. To expect perfection just because we're Trads is naive and not very realistic.
Good point.
By the way, do you think we could get a petition together and see if it aint possible to get a few Heavenly denizens to join the forum?  Even one would be good! ;D

Remember that silly campaign for the Charlie Hebdo magazine, "Je suis Charlie" or, "I am Charlie"?

How about "I am CathInfo" -- applied to each one of you reading this? Maybe put it on a T-shirt, or say it aloud as you look in the mirror?

CathInfo is little more than the grouping of hundreds of different English-speaking Traditional Catholics all over the world, into one place where they can meet, discuss, and share information. The forum is nothing more or less than what YOU, YOU, and YOU each make of it.

BE THE CHANGE you want to see in the world. If that sounds too hopelessly ambitious in its original context (changing the world), how about just applied to CathInfo? The forum isn't THAT large. If a few people decided they were going to post more spiritual or beneficial content, people would soon notice.

It's just a few loudmouths that give the "reputation" that Student of Qi speaks of. There is plenty of good content on CathInfo if you learn how to browse a topic page, and ignore the idiots. Yes, that takes self-discipline to not click that enticing (like a train wreck) link.

I think it is because of the position of its founder, Archbishop Lefebvre. One example, he says in his work Against the Heresies:

Following the founder's thinking, and with an evident desire to outshine the "competition" in the fight for Tradition, there have been other theological works heavily promoted by the SSPX attacking the EENS dogma, such as Fr. Francois Lainey's Is Feeneyism Catholic?

Yes, and this proves they prefer the doctrines of men, instead of the Holy Ghost!  They cling to men instead of God.

Psalms 4:3 O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? why do you love vanity, and seek after lying?

Psalms 61:10 But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive.

He asks an interesting question though.
I am none of the above, neither am I sspx or resistance. I'm just plain Catholic.
Yes, concerning vacantism, when one invokes morality(which is dogmatic) to either defend or promote their theory, then I would say they have become dogmatic.  When one thinks it a mortal sin to pray for the pope(whom Christ prays for) in the canon of the mass, then you have become dogmatic.

He's from KY.  Nope.  I'm done.

Actually, I know some rather intelligent people who don't bother with this site because in the more learned circles this place is full of clowns who can't be told anything. Hardheads, idiots, schismatics, heretics. That is the reputation this place has. Admittedly, I think those critics drop in once in a while. Lol

The "United States" is utterly dominated and controlled by the Talmudic zionists.   Obama admitted to the 'exceptionalism' of "United States" i.e. property of the so called 'chosen people' called "Israel".  There is always the star of Israel intergraded with the insignias of the "United States" but always prevailing overheard.  This is why the "United States" pays tribute to the tune of billions of dollars to Israel.

I'm not sure, but are you slanting all Sedevacantists as flat earthers?  Do you believe there is salvation outside the Catholic church?
I never said in my OP that all or even any vacantists are flat earth.  Perhaps if I did not use a comma, and instead said feeneyite vacantist flat earthers, one could deduce such.  

As to your second question, read the old testament; God has mercy on the widow and the fatherless.  Does that state exist in non catholic societies and cultures?  I think so.  What exactly that means, I do not say I know.  Outside of BOD/BOB for catechumens, I let God be God.

I think it is because of the position of its founder, Archbishop Lefebvre. One example, he says in his work Against the Heresies:

Quote
"Evidently, certain distinctions must be made.  Souls can be saved in a religion other than the Catholic religion (Protestantism, Islam, Buddhism, etc.), but not by this religion.  There may be souls who, not knowing Our Lord, have by the grace of the good Lord, good interior dispositions, who submit to God…But some of these persons make an act of love which implicitly is equivalent to baptism of desire.  It is uniquely by this means that they are able to be saved."

Following the founder's thinking, and with an evident desire to outshine the "competition" in the fight for Tradition, there have been other theological works heavily promoted by the SSPX attacking the EENS dogma, such as Fr. Francois Lainey's Is Feeneyism Catholic?
