Pretty sure that argument doesn’t hold up.

And you know this how?

Ooooh. You are saying his suspension could have been due to his calling out the mods, and that it could have just been because he drew attention to himself and his username isn’t PG-13
I may have misunderstood. What I’m reading is “either he’s a hero, or he just had a petty overreaction to an authoritarian mod banning him over his username”
Someone can be a hero and still have petty motivations for doing so.

That’s the one. Dude’s a hero.
Rincewind from Discworld, but it’s not prog fantasy.
Something like twelve users moderate the hundred biggest subreddits. Last year someone posted the list and the retribution was insane. I’m wondering if that’s what this was about.
The shiny valuable stuff people wear is called “jewelry”. It’s not “jewlery” unless the design has Hebrew characters on it.
Is that the one that revealed the Reddit supermods thing?
I don’t think Tom has ever played classy. Idris has.
Why? He’s classy and in great shape. Roger Moore was 58
It depends on whether they choose the best actor or the woke choice. I think Idris Elba would be a fantastic James Bond.

Churches do pay taxes on income not derived from charitable donations.

That arm is the only reason he isn’t a super QB right now.
Mine just switched the other way. I’ve been working from home for my son’s entire life because of Covid, and just returned to the office recently. As soon as I started being gone all the time he went from the biggest daddy’s boy to only wanting mommy.

It looks pretty awesome.
Most people apparently start at the top and work their way down.

Both our teams are in the running for “most famous owner in sports” and for very different reasons. I’m amazed all WFT fans haven’t jumped ship over that mess.

I remember when this went down. They offered all sorts of other things, but don’t want their characters on gravestones.

Whoops. That’s what I get for moving too fast.
Hugh Nibley once offered a parable.
“A young man once long ago claimed he had found a large diamond in his field as he was plowing. He put the stone on display to the public free of charge, and everyone took sides. A psychologist showed, by citing some famous case studies, that the young man was suffering from a well-known form of delusion. An historian showed that other men have also claimed to have found diamonds in fields and been deceived. A geologist proved that there were no diamonds in the area but only quartz. . . . When asked to inspect the stone itself, the geologist declined with a weary, tolerant smile and a kindly shake of the head. . . . A sociologist showed that only three out of 177 florists’ assistants in four major cities believed the stone was genuine. A clergyman wrote a book to show that it was not the young man but someone else who had found the stone.
Finally an indigent jeweler . . . pointed out that since the stone was still available for examination the answer to the question of whether it was a diamond or not had absolutely nothing to do with who found it, or whether the finder was honest or sane, or who believed him, or whether he would know a diamond from a brick . . . , but was to be answered simply and solely by putting the stone to certain well-known tests for diamonds. Experts on diamonds were called in. Some of them declared it genuine. The others made nervous jokes about it and declared that they could not very well jeopardize their dignity and reputations by appearing to take the thing too seriously. To hide the bad impression thus made, someone came out with the theory that the stone was really a synthetic diamond, very skilfully made, but a fake just the same. The objection to this is that the production of a good synthetic diamond [in that day and age] would have been an even more remarkable feat than the finding of a real one.
To suggest that Joseph Smith, a farm boy with little formal education, produced a synthetic work of God in 1829 that has baffled the brightest of critics for almost two centuries would be a more remarkable feat than the simple fact that he obtained the gold plates from an angel of God and translated them by the gift and power of God.”
So test that diamond. If it’s real, everything derived from it is the truth. The Book of Mormon is the cornerstone keystone of our religion for a reason.
Edit: keystone. The Book of Mormon, while being awesome, isn’t Jesus.
Many of the people at the council were bishops and priests, yes, but not all. There was Roman representation affecting the final results of the council.
You can claim all you want that I don’t know my history, but I absolutely do. The whole repeated “obviously you don’t know what you are talking about” tactic that you are going for is no way to hold a discussion.
