I registered on Catholic.ie (with the same login name - Inedifix) a while back when Michael made his invitation, but I never got around to actually posting, it seemed kind of boring really. Anyway, as a result of not ever having expressed any views on Catholic.ie I received the following e-mail this morning:
The following is the text of a personal message which I have sent to everyone. I am emailing it to you as well in case you are not regularly logging on to the Irish Catholics' Forum:
We have a new co-moderator, CPM, and if he allows me I hope to hand the forum over to him completely soon. He and I have agreed to remove the threads where the atheist posters were active and to bar the individuals concerned. All registered members may now start and reply to threads. New posts will be moderated carefully and members who post anti-Catholic ideas will not be allowed to remain. I think I was wrong to allow so much freedom because this forum was intended to be a place where (mainly) Traditionalist Catholics could communicate with one another. I thought it would be instructive to hear the views of non-believers but the atheist members were so vociferous and sometimes so aggressive that it changed the overall tone of the forum and may have put some Catholics off. We have got a number of new members (possibly because of the advertising in recent weeks) so there is hope for the future. May I ask all of you to give a little time to re-energising the forum under this !
new regime, in the hope that it will have a future under the management of CPM.

Here's the real irony Michael, although I have never expressed any anti-Catholic views on Irish Catholics.ie, I bet I'll now be barred (once you've tipped the new mod off that Inedifix is an atheist), yet you have been, are still, and will almost certainly remain, free to post on any thread, on any topic, on any part of this site, without restriction.
You can be as vociferous, as aggressive, as caustic, as sarcastic and as evasive as you like. But the chances of you getting barred are slimmer than mine of getting a logically sound response from you to my last post.
P.S. Is it possible that the reason God never gets around to warning the millions who die in the earthquakes and tsunami he sets in motion, because he's just so damn busy appearing in the dreams of people like you to advise you on herbal horticulture?
P.P.S. That was sarcasm, not aggression.
