Parables

Can a forum parallel a parable?

For example, in Matt. 12:43 the unclean spirit is cast out of a man, returns and, finding the house empty, brings in seven more spirits.

Can that happen to a forum? One is banned and seven more fill the spot, though not as prolifically as the original one banned, but can more posters in the same spirit of posting replace the banned?

Before anyone gets all in a huff, I am not calling anyone an unclean spirit. I am just wondering if a forum like this can parallel the parables.

And for the first three paragraphs I thought you were being humorous.

Why isn't it humorous? I just don't want anyone misrepresenting my motives.

What do you think?

I thought it was, but when I finished reading I thought you were serious.... so now I'm just confused... but that's ok because it's past my bedtime. Maybe tomorrow it will all become clear. (insert tired mommy smiley here)

Simple answer... yes.

It can happen.
And it does happen.

Care to give any examples?

It would be nice if it worked backwards sometimes. If the banned takes seven or more like them with them. lol

It's a public forum made up PEOPLE.

That's the only answer needed.

Hmm...no sir
I dont think I want to give any examples.

As a matter of fact, this thread is on the razor's edge of causing a whole lotta trouble.
If I didnt know better, I'd almost think you were trying to stir the pot a little, Dr. Jekyll
