Aguest - I totally understand why Cofty is upset here, your comment was out of line there was no need for you to make such a comment. We do not need yet another discussion derailed due to insulting / baiting comments being posted
I ALL honesty, I do not, dear Angharad (peace to you!). I was not in ANY way insinuating that I thought similar of Cofty (not at all! C'mon, people! It was an example - given how much time he spends on here, when would he have TIME??). I used his name to try and help him see how utterly ridiculous it COULD be! That someone could accuse HIM... and knowing just what I know of him through this forum THAT child would have to give ME more! I mean, I don't even know C personally, but someone couldn't just accuse him of bad conduct to ME - they would have to give me some more details and MAKE me believe it!
I TRULY do NOT get this heightened sensivity! Really, I don't! I was NOT insinuating that C would even engage in such conduct - to the contrary, that's why I used HIM as the example... because I could NOT imagine it!
What is UP with all of this reading bad motives? Is it such a stretch to say, "Maybe she means that such an allegation would, in HER mind, be SO ridiculous, given who's being accused, that she would NEED more information?"?????
Sigh. Look, perhaps it's best if C and I just steer clear of each other, as well. I mean, if you check the record, I rarely engage him first. RARELY. Usually, I'm just responding to some snarky comment HE'S made.
Goodness, I am tired of this... truly. It's just too much, sometimes. Just too much.
Please... can we leave the WTBTS "anyone who doesn't speak to me a certain way is out to hurt my feelings" melarkey for once and for all? All MANNER of things are said about me on this site. I take it with a grain of salt because I KNOW the folks who do it don't know me. But goodness... surely you all know I wouldn't think C a molester (OMG!)... or even seriously insinuate he was! Again, the point was how UNBELIEVALBE such an accusation would be to ME... even from a child!
Now, can we return to the topic? Which isn't about that WTBTS disfellowshipping works, in general, but why... WHEN IT DOES... it does. Why, when no one steps up and say, "Hey, wait, I KNOW this person and while they may have some questions, I KNOW they still love God/don't dance with the Devil/sacrifice their children to pagan gods!"
Nevermind. Won't matter. No matter what topic I post on, there are those who are going to turn it into what they want others to think it is, use their "OMG, did you SEE what she wrote NOW?!" melarkey. Whatever. Do your thing. If that's the best you can do... do what you do.
A doulos of Christ,
SA... who is only misunderstood by those who either jump to take... and make... offense where none is intended, at all... or don't bother to ask what "may" have been meant.
And no, C... I don't care what you think of me, because I can't. You have NEVER issued a decent word in my direction, that I'm aware of. At least, not in the past 2-3 years. Why in the WORLD would I care what you think of me... when you have SHOWN your contempt... long, long before you put it in words?
