  1. Trying to figure out which forum to put this in. John crossed so many lines, so we'll just pick Open. John died today. This link goes to Elizabeth's Facebook post. Added Sept. 30: This thread was posted to open to allow posters to determine the content and direction. A memorial thread to pay your respects is posted here.

    The Cones of 2021

    Thank you, George. One more thing off my (Raf's) to-do list. :)
  3. Hi JS That would be Athletes of the Spirit. We're familiar with it. :)

    The Cones of 2021

    Looks like the main difference between this morning's track and the previous one I posted is the speed of the storm: It will now be, at 2 p.m., where it was earlier predicted to be at 8 a.m. That means it's slowing down and. depending on the water temperature, it will have time to pick up some speed. FWIW. Stay safe.

    The Cones of 2021

    Not a lot of shift in the last 24 hours. The Tues/8 a.m. position is a touch closer to land. For those who don't recall: I am on the east coast of Florida, so I will get some effects, but this forecast still puts us far from the worst of it. That said, the actual path could be anywhere in the cone and still be a good prediction. In other words, I won't know it's missing us until after it misses us. For those in the path, please get your prep in! Raf
  6. Greetings, St. Christopher (love the screen name): When I'm not moderating, I'm Raf. I wanted to clarify and amend WordWolf's response to be a little more clear. The Greasespot Cafe is an online community of former followers of The Way International (and its offshoots, to a lesser extent). We are not unified in our beliefs. We have no teachings. We have no doctrine. We have no heirarchy. A few moderators stick around to make sure the conversations are cordial and that no one uses this platform to commit actionable slander. Some of us maintain that Wierwille was a man of God whose legacy was attacked after he died and he was the victim of a long campaign of posthumous character assassination. One of us (maybe more, I don't know) believes that the written works of Wierwille are, in fact, the God-breathed Word and more trustworthy than your Bible for all things that pertain to life and godliness. Some of us think Wierwille was sometimes right and sometimes wrong. We don't even agree with each other on what he was right or wrong about! So there's a lot of variety. You could believe he got Speaking in Tongues right but that Jesus really is God. Or that he got the Trinity right but gifts of the spirit wrong. This particular thread is about the joint effort of two groups at odds with each other over at least one crucial doctrine and maybe more. And it's an interesting conversation (or it was two years ago when we had it). Some of us have embraced traditional Christianity. Some of us have left Christianity for another religion. Pretty sure we have one wiccan or practicer of reiki (confession: STILL don't know what that means). And some of us embrace no religion at all.
  7. Raf, speaking with the modhat on: I think a good 40 to 60 percent of the GSC rules were written to stop me from being less than hospitable to Mike. If they sometimes seem like, "really? that's a rule?" I may be to blame for it. We may not be as intense as we were in the olden days, but I do think we're a more polite place than we used to be, and I kind of appreciate that. I hope everyone else does, too. Welcome back (again), Mike. Hope you enjoy your stay and enjoy some good conversation. Even if I think you're mmmmphhhmpphpmphhphphmhmmhmmmhmhhppphphhhphph!!!!! [content removed for violation of GSC rules: STOP THAT, RAF!!!]
  8. You had me at Sandy Stern, though George beat me to it. -- Raf
  9. Episode 5 blew MY mind. Anyone else?
  10. George is correct. WW is up. Modcat5 has spoken. I have spoken. This is the way.
  11. Nope. Sorry i did not see it sooner.
  12. No cones to report, but a lot of activity is being watched. I thought the Marco and Laura cones were just awful. [Oops. Didn't realize I was in mod mode. Sorry about that, folks. This is Raf].

    Anyone else?

    J Nnnn I sent you a private message and hid a separate thread over concerns for your privacy. Please take a look at your private messages and respond. Welcome to GSC.
  14. In an abundance of caution, we've hidden a recent thread that, in our view, contained enough personal information to "out" the person who posted it, affecting not only him but his family. We've advised the original poster of that risk and asked if he's willing to take it. To be clear, the poster did not say or do anything to violate GSC policy and we are acting only in an abundance of caution. Thank you for understanding.
  15. "These rules are meant to encourage civil, courteous discussion. They are not meant to stifle your freedom of expression. We want everyone to have a voice here; please use yours wisely and considerately." As you were, gentlemen.
  16. Welcome back. Feel free to familiarize yourself with our "fair use" policy. Carry on.
  17. THIS IS NOT THE GSC RULE. THIS IS THE OPPOSITE OF THE GSC RULE. Please minimize extensive quotes from another website, and make sure you provide the link/credit when you do!
  18. Thank you to everyone for making this particular moderating task so easy. So the offending post was deleted, and every post that referred to it afterward as well. Which is to say, every post afterward. Thanks for playing, and thanks for the humor you found in the situation. I almost hated deleting some of the wittier replies. Almost. Play nice.
  19. Margie, did this ever get resolved? I hope you see this and answer.
  20. Apologies for my failure to approve this question on a more timely basis. We are not notified when questions are pending. Now we know.
