The Day AFF Died?

What's up with this place? Was the day all the ultra liberals got kicked out the day AFF died? Now the forum has almost now volley, all the ultra cons left (except for random new ones who sign up and only last a short time), all the ultra libs have been banned (generally speaking), and all the factions in between except for a remnant of moderate minded folks.

Perhaps the problem is all the "apostolics" are no longer apostolic?

Re: The Day AFF Died?

Seriously, I only know of one (or two) regular poster that has been banned in the past year -I am sure there are many more who were never hear that much before they were kicked off.

And your correct that the conservatives (especially UC's) simply don't hang around much.

That song was going through my head when I read this post! LOL!

By the way, I LOVED that song.

I do not see what is so bad now that the hard right and hard left people are gone?

I sure wish the US Congress could get it's act together like that.

Actually that was the phrase/song in my mind as I posted this thread (and I don't know why since I neither listen to it, nor like it), but working in retail you become familiar with all sorts of music and lyrics.......

I bet someone could come up with a great AFF parody based on that (there's a pretty funny Obamacare parody on youtube featuring that song).....

But in that vein...... perhaps this place died because they allowed believers in.......(wait for it)................ the THREE men that mattered most, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.....that was the day AFF died. :/

AFF thrives on controversy, heated debate, passionate discussion, yet mutual respect (although sometimes that falls by the wayside). When those elements are here, this place explodes.


Oh, and gossip. Those threads always go crazy like some religious TMZ. Really that's not good for anyone, but sucks a lot of people in.

I found AFF originally one night while researching a possible split in the UPC my pastor told me about. (That turned out to be the WPF), and have been posting here since then (2007).

It's more self-selecting than any effect of bans. Ultra Cons, after they discover they cannot achieve much traction to change anyone, nor receive much of a cheering section, then lose interest, and (per their Jesus) shake the dust off their shoes--after all, there's an unchurched world out there to save.

Libs and cons alike, who have never figured out to rid their posts of such emotive words as "silly", "off-base," "ignorant", "ridiculous," and the like, when responding to others' posts, eventually discover how tedious and unsatisfying a urination contest is.

Those who come to just talk, or even to spar, but without expectation to change anyone or anything can have an interesting (enough) time.
