1. I generally agree with your post about Xtian love not coming through well
on this list. I suspect that it is the nature of debate. I think it is

tool on a lot of the internet. Many ISPs have added it to their software.
Some do it negatively (only presons "approved" get through and the rest go

I did put Jim, for a time, into my own twit filter (not anyone else) and
told him so, which I think was both a proper and a Christain thing to do (He

to the list -- I think inadvertently -- I subsequently apologized then and
do so again now.
I have been told by certain others that I am on their twit filter list. I am
not offended; I do not think Jim was either. It is just a way to cut down
the traffic when it gets too much to deal with.
