The Spirituality forum has returned but with some obviously noticeable changes.One major change is that sub-forums have been added to accommodate the
various religious sects that make up this community.
All of the threads that once made up the Spirituality forum as a whole have been moved to an Archived forum that is for viewing only.
The rules that applied to the Spirituality forum apply to all sub-forums as well.Religious debates are not to be posted in the sub-forums but in the
Religious Debates forum as it always has been.
Over posting (spamming) in the sub-forums is considered to be five or more posts made in the same day.This number can change if we see it is being
abused.In other words, posting exactly five threads everyday is obvious spamming.We have never allowed spam in the other forums and we discourage it
here as well.When you spam you essentially see to it that threads by other members get pushed to back pages while yours stay on the front page.This is
selfish and disrespectful to your fellow board members.
We hope these added changes will be beneficial to all members and bring peace to this forum as a whole.However, we know that no matter what you give
people they will always want more so we will answer some basic questions right off.
No, we won't be adding any more sub forums.It is not our goal to accommodate every single religion out there, that would literally be impossible.We
do believe that all forums provided will house most of the religions our members seem to follow.
No you are not dreaming, the Spirituality forum no longer shows up in Topic Activity and it will stay this way until further notice.Most people do not
read this forum and we know this because our stats show us that most views in this forum (77.6%) are generated via search engine robots and not actual
Lastly, as per the rules, we reserve the right to edit, move or delete any post or thread we don't like.This is a privately owned and operated forum
and because we pay the bills we can do what we want.I know that may sound arrogant but it is true.We provide a FREE service to people and we owe none
of you any answers as to why we do what we do.I'm sure when Black Planet, BET and Black Voices closed their entire forums and deleted your posts none
of you sent off scathing e-mails demanding an answer.Show us the same respect you show them.
