Where is Jehosephat?

I miss him, and by reading his posts, could always feel somewhat "good" about myself.

We haven't heard from him since he graduated college.

The sedevacantist Josephat?

He kept crossing the line, and one day Vox saw his posts and personally booted him.  He was the reason for the "Listen up sedevacantists" announcement.

I thought it might have been SayDayVacationist that caused that.

Hunh.

Thanks.

She booted a few that day.  The ones that are still around are the ones who follow the rules, and they talk about a lot of other things and add to conversations in general, so they're welcome to be here.  I like most of them, personally, though I disagree with them.

The thing is Vox intends the forum to be a "hospital for sinners" (and I certainly count myself as in need of hospitalization) as well as a place for people to hang out with other Catholics.  So, people from Sedevacantists to Modernists and everything in between are going to be welcome here as long as they follow the rules.

The rules that exist are basically just enough to stop the place from turning into an asylum.  When Vox and I were both away because of personal stuff, the place did go nuts because no one was enforcing the short list of rules that exist.  Even with the rules, the tone of the forum is kind of organic and will swing this way and that as people come and go.

Anyhow, I know I'm babbling, but I get tired of hearing how things are unfair (not from you, Dad, I'm just talking in general).

When compared to other forums people "get away with murder" here.  In reality, Vox and I don't think they get away with murder - we think there is a need for open discussion, but there's got to be at least basic rules.

I should probably post this rant as an announcement, but better phrased.

Actually, this forum is pretty relaxed in terms of rules. No rules against ressurrecting old threads, double-posting, thread derailment... Then again, unwritten rules of at least 'acting' Catholic apply here, so there's not much need to write them down.

Sometimes it seems that people forget that. Just an observation...

As long as it doesn't become an "Asylum for Heretics", it's fine.

Dunno, I think it could be argued that all heretics are sinners and to some degree or another and all sinners are heretics as they choose to place something between themselves and the Lord.

My thoughts exactly.  If some Prots or "liberal Catholics" find the authentic Faith through the links on FE, then I'd say why should they be shunned from here?
