This list is the "home" list for BattleACTS. To go online

New subscribers can sign-in and read and respond - or you can just "visit" without signing in,
but you will not be permitted to post messages.
This page is dedicated to the BattleACTS email list (formed May 24, 1999)
whose purpose is to debate Catholic vs. Protestant in the least
restrictive environment. Providing the participants are not
getting into profanity, the list owner will allow virtually all
discussions to go on uninterupted.
This means that this particular list is NOT for the weakminded
or weakhearted! You may get called a heretic here, but your
accuser will have to support what he/she says with verifiable
documentation, (official Church documents online are acceptable).
So, essentially, for now, this list has five rules:
Persons found to repeatedly violate the list rules will be
subject to removal from the list.
- No profanity.
- Be able to document your claims, or retract them.
- Direct ad hominem is forbidden.
- Catholics will not be the challengers/detractors here.
- Abide by the decisions of the moderators.
In accordance with the expressed description of this group (to be
able to support/document from authentic Catholic teachings)
challengers found to be "flooding" the group with topics, diluting
discussions, may be moderated to limit them to one topic (of their
choice) at a time. You may attack what a person SAYS but not
their person. You may challenge a person's understanding - but do
so in the spirit of 1 Peter 3:15-17. Always be prepared to give an
answer, but do so charitably. Do not attack persons, but be
respectful and those who attack you for your good discussion will
be brought to shame.
For an example of what is forbidden:
That statement cannot be true because you are an idiot.
You are (fill in the blank with some derogatory term).
Now you could say, "that's an idiotic response." In such a situation
you're not directly calling the person an idiot - only that their
response was idiotic. That sort of speech is a bit inflammatory and
as such is expressly forbidden on the
ACTS List, and while not expressly forbidden on BattleACTS, it is
still strongly discouraged and subscribers who repeatedly and/or overly
use such inflammatory speech (in the view of the moderators) may still
face moderator intervention - and therein you must abide by rule #5 (above).
If you have a request of the list owner, please write me privately at:
BattleACTSfirstname.lastname@example.org and not
post publically to the list, and this goes for requests for moderation too.
