As usually happens, the topic of this news article (with the word "bible" in the title) has been lost and the version debate has hijacked the thread. It is not SermonAudio's purpose to prohibit a civil discussion about bible versions in this forum. We simply ask that the discussion take place in a survey appropriate for the discussion.
This news article thread will not be closed at this time nor will any comments be removed at this time but, please, for the sake of our many users who expect to read comments relevant to the news article, continue the version discussion in an appropriate survey.

In case you missed it, see my post 1/22/10 4:22 PM for the reason your comments are being removed. Most of the regular forum posters have cooperated and I would hope for your cooperation as well. However, even without your cooperation these news threads will no longer be turned into battlegrounds for the never ending version debate. It's up to you whether your posts stand or are removed.

Must every news item with the word "bible" in it become a battle ground for the never ending version debate? There are several surveys specifically for this purpose so may we please keep these news items topical, civil and meaningful.
Your comments were removed because they had nothing to do with the news item. There was a recent news article titled [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=28629]]]Harold Camping's date for rapture: May 21, 2011 [/URL]but it was closed because it got off topic. If you want to continue posting comments on Camping's end time prediction use [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=28616]]]this thread.[/URL]

That post is in response to a post I made yet there are no posts from me in that thread. I know that it is possible that either Wayne or I accidentally crossed threads, but I don't think so in this case. My post was in response to Wayne's comment starting with "Misconception: "The Bible came from the Roman Catholic Church (and the RCC originated with the apostle Peter)".". Wayne's comments are there but mine are not.
I did some research on this and found Wayne M. posted "Misconception: etc." 10/21/09 11:43 AM in the "Pope Approves Plan to Bring Anglicans Into the Fold" thread and again 10/21/09 4:09 PM in the "Pope canonises five new saints" thread. This is why you don't see a post from you in the former thread and if you check that thread again you will see that you would have had to have been either the first or second person to post in that thread.
I believe the problem can be attributed to cross posting because "deletion" of a post in the Comment Forum also "blocks" future posting and you're still posting.
It seems your dispute is with the blog host and not SermonAudio. Btw, I am not Steven Lee but if you email him I'm sure he will explain the relationship between the SermonAudio sponsored and moderated "comment forum" and the broadcaster hosted "blogs".

Normally I would not respond but in this case I believe there is a misunderstanding. I reviewed your posts over the past 30 days and found none that were "removed". "Deletion" is a rarely used option used only when compliance to the modest rules are continually ignored.
If your posts are vanishing into cyberspace when you are attempting to post a comment there could be several reasons but none are a form of censorship based on a "dissenting voice". May I suggest that before you attempt to post a comment that you first "select all" and "copy" it to clipboard. If it will not post perhaps too much time has elapsed in which case you can open another window, "paste" and repost. If this fails there may be a word in the text which will not pass the filters all posts must clear. This happens occasionally and an example would be if Hebrews 12:8 is quoted from the KJV.
I hope this information is helpful. If the problem persists please contact Steven Lee at [email protected]
There are a couple existing surveys dedicated to the version debate. It would be appreciated if those interested in this topic would resume their discussion in one of those surveys so this news item can get back on topic. It would also be advisable to turn the heat down a couple degrees.
