You fail to understand the nature of a Catholic forum. But you are not alone.
There are only TWO POSSIBILITIES for a forum:
1. An elite club of "friends" and those who think alike. The owner/moderator rules with a heavy hand, and casts out all those unlike himself.
2. A group of Catholics reminiscent of the Catholic Church itself -- a net enclosing both good and bad fishes. Freedom is given to those with opposing opinions, which of course creates some lively discussions, which could be considered "strife" or "friction".
The choice is always before me, but for me there isn't a choice. #2 is the only way to go.
It's not my place to enforce morality, charity, or anything else. Who died and left me YOUR PARENT? Only parents of young children try to physically enforce morality. Are the members of CathInfo my children now? On the contrary, everyone will be responsible for every idle word, SPOKEN, TRANSMITTED BY PHONE, OR TYPED. That is true everywhere.
Obviously I'll try to remove the worst offenders -- but I have to maintain a balance. If I cast out every member that someone didn't like, CI would be a ghost town within a month -- or at least it would resemble Option #1.
You were right the first time -- CI is a good place to meet and discuss with like-minded Catholics. For many isolated Catholics, it's the ONLY place. If you changed your mind on this heading, you're just wrong. It's got to be your emotions talking, because countless members have made countless friends on CI over the years.
Can't handle the bad with the good? Go hide in a bunker and never emerge into the real world. You need to learn to deal with bad/difficult people, in real life OR online. It's a critical life skill that everyone needs to have.
But sometimes you DO need to ignore one or two people that push your buttons. You also have to let an annoying person (who you consider to be wrong or heretical) to have the last word in a thread. That's difficult for some people to do.
If someone's behavior is seriously bad -- above "noise level" (more than average), you can always PM me. I do read all my PMs, though I can't respond in-depth to each one. If enough people complain about a person, I do look into it. I've banned many troublemakers in the past, and I'm sure I haven't banned my last one yet.
