Thank you for your concern. Here are the rules and policies established by the site founder published on the full site:
"Â» No profanities including crude or rude language. Â» Personal attacks or insults directed at other users will be censored. Â» Only one post at a time per thread (allow for alternate users). Â» No cross-posting or spamming (do not copy your posts everywhere). Â» Use the "Insert Hyperlink" button to embed hyperlinks.
We reserve the right to censor other obviously inappropriate comments.
By submitting your comment for review you agree to the forum policies."
The other obvious given which should guide everyone is SermonAudio is a Protestant Christian site and everyone is expected to conduct themselves accordingly.
While I personally disagree with most of Jim's views, I can't justify censoring him for holding to views contrary to mine or the majority of regular commenters.
My advice is ignore him as it's unlikely he's going away any time soon or will change his views.

The purpose of this comment board is to provide an environment where Protestant Christians can discuss current events from a Christian and biblical perspective. For the most part your comments fail to meet that purpose.
I strongly encourage you to re-evaluate your purpose for posting on SermonAudio and determine if it has anything in common with our purpose. Failure to do so will likely result in the removal of your non-conforming posts.

It is quite disheartening since this is a Christian forum that it is even necessary, but as Scripture warns us there are the tares among the wheat. Thank you once again. GOD'S richest blessings to you all.
You're welcome and we appreciate your encouragement.

Imagine what thousands of others think when they happen to see some of the really terrible comments as they cruise the site. I've had maybe one or two comments removed over the years and I think that was for quoting someone else who got deleted. As Christians, there's just no reason for it.

SteveR wrote: Alpha You realize the '7th Day' is Saturday, right? and the majority Christian view, if not all of the Pastors that offer sermons on this site, believe the Sabbath is now the LORDs Day (Sunday)
The point of my reply was not to discuss the Sabbath but to link the foul post to it's author. But thanks for your concern.
Kev wrote: Steve I saw your post that was deleted. I don't know what an apostolic Christian is I will have to look that up. You seem very concerned about calling others out and if your character was more appropriate it would make your concerns more credible but as I see it from what I've seen they have their reasons for treating you in the way that they do. Do you feel you treat people appropriately? Would you want people from your congregation seeing your posts? If not why don't you just rise above like you told Andrea and just be more civil in how you carry yourself on here. You say I don't know the past but how should I view your actions from all I have seen. I know I need work myself and I strive to do better day by day. Maybe another approach would be worth a shot. Blessed are the peace makers right?
When someone gets in a divisive, insulting mode; just ignore them and let us deal with their posts. To try to reason with them simply prolongs the incivility.
SteveR wrote: Be truthful Mod Beta, you deleted the post not because I said those accusing NOSEM with ZERO evidence were wicked, but rather because you were convicted when I said SA has a bias against NOSEM
I doubt Moderator Beta will grace your comment with a reply but understand that I removed your comment because I can. That's all you need to know.
