I get that you feel personal ownership and pride over the thread, there was a discussion on the changes to the scriptures and someone asked if there was any real difference. I gave my opinion on what I felt was the most important one. What I've found fascinating is the way believing members are constantly trying to control the conversation online like they are able to do in church to only talk about doctrines that are faith promoting or faith neutral. I"ll remind you that I'm the third post on this thread and feel just as much right to personal ownership to it as you do. I don't think it is possible to understand the doctrine without critically examining what they are. Since for the believing member those doctrines are subject to constant reinterpretation or "revelation," you can't have an understanding of what they may do regarding gay marriage if you are unaware of the previous statements and doctrines on interracial marriage. My opinions on what is the doctrine of the LDS church is going to sound like an attack to your ears. What is so aggravating I am sure is that as a former ally and insider, I have the specialized knowledge to debate you the logical merits of the validity of the claims. To understand Mormonism, I think you must subject it to critical examination. I just read a book on Scientology called "Going Clear." It taught me far more about Scientology than reading Dianetics and taking Scientology courses ever could. If you had a thread about understanding Scientology, and then forbid attacks on the Seaorg for dumping people overboard ships or whatnot, that would seem really weird to me. So that is why I disagree with the basic premise of the moderation policy. But you are right, we've done this all before so no need to go round in circles again and again, I argue with you mostly because you are one of the smartest Mormons I know, and I see it as a challenge and honestly there is a part of me that would like me to be proven wrong yet again, so take that for what it is worth.
