It is a great cross at first to shoulder to simply stop visiting first, places like zerohedge and drudgereport, and then to progress to any other site including novusordowatch which I visit rarely which causes static. This site wouldn't except for the reputation, almost certainly. Guess what I always do? I always cover with my hand the left hand side of the page if I do come here.
The site should be benign. We have a right to be benign and to encourage. To process without distraction.
Here's what I always thought best. Just do up votes, and on individual posts only.
I have to cover the left hand side just to maintain my innocence, which is very very mportant to me.
When I visited and read here, I always felt... kind of.... empathy for those I understood were strong enough to inspire 'hate' or 'love' from others with some opinion or other... and that's as far as it went.
Forexfactory has a ingenious way of showing traders whose input is valuable - there's a way to subscribe. If one has above a certain number of subscribers the little flag appears next to the name and it changes color as more do. I did get subscribers but years passed before I even noticed the little flag! The site has strong skilled policing because traders from all over the world interact there. Here, it would be like subscribing to a person whose thinking, in general, you like - but it is designed to actually help traders trade better because the high impact traders have the darkest little flag.
Here, we are not materialistic in that way. Let's just digest in peace.
And let each other be in peace.
Otherwise, it's distracting, and grays out the site.
St. Terese of Jesus, the ardent communicator
St. Terese of Jesus wouldn't up vote and down vote the person; she'd probably want the reputation removed.
I'm sure she is interested; she was a great communicator and loved interacting with others... but understood only when she gained liberty of soul that God was right meaning meant her best when he told her:
'I want you to communicate with angels, not men' during a period of great stress because her reputation had been hurt in the monastery when the portress reported that some 'learned men' as St. Terese of Jesus called the Jesuits she felt she needed to confide in, and others, not only misconstrued what she confided thinking she was deluded, but also, spread the information she had entrusted to them - this was not breaking the seal of confession ... she was very humble and only understood from that that God wanted her to suffer at that time. But... it was then that Our Lord intervened and told her the above quoted desire of his.
You can find details in The Life of St Terese by herself.
