You influence nobody here. Nobody.
Speak for yourself, cupcake.

That's all you can really do. Unless you claim to be omnipresent in everyone... do you?

Apparently she thinks the words disappear after she posts them.
Or, she thinks you can only read posts as they are made.

Yes, and very telling.

It's obvious that this person is trying to discourage people from sharing different viewpoints. I wonder why.

FYI, I don't follow any church's doctrine. I've been in several different churches as a visitor since I was a little kid and none have appealed to me enough to become a member. Attending church is not my cuppa, but I respect the right of everybody who wants to do it to be able to do it without being taunted by some loon.
BTW, the religion forum on Topix is a fairly obscure place to be preaching either for OR against any doctrine. There are very few people who ever visit this forum, much less this particular thread, so just who the fk do you think you are swaying with your rants?
Holy crappoley, I couldn't care less what freaky drug you took in your misspent youth, grandpa.
You appear to give too much of a shyt what the members of a group you no longer hang with think about you. Life is short, let it go and move on. Those JWs you used to "fellowship" with likely never give you a second thought anymore. Why let something that happened so long ago eat at you like this? BTW, you don't sound like you've yet to be all that filled with Jesus's love that you mentioned. Didn't Jesus say to forgive, forgive, forgive.....
You're only hurting yourself with all this hate talk.
well I guess you can say the same to the JW on here that post for years and all day some all night. and it appears by your post you want people to hate JW or hoping they will post derogatory things about JW so you can really say they hate them, it helps JW believe they are the only true religion when people hate them, does it help you also.

The man has been spewing his venomous hatred of JW's organization on this site since 2008. The thousands of comments he has made against them belies his claim that he would be happy if only one person was to turn away from that particular ideology. That's a lot spewing for hoping to "turn" only one person. I suspect there's more to it than him just being kicked out of their ranks for using LSD back in hippy sixties.

People don't leave the church of their choice because of what other people say about it, but because of their own wee voice deep inside telling them to.

I grew up in an obscure Christian sect and, as far as I know, am the only person to have ever left it. Being "born into" a group makes it harder to leave, obviously, but people do implement their own will and it seldom has to do with old men who rant on threads buried in the bowels of Topix.

Last night there were only five people observing this forum, how many of them do you think bothered to read this particular thread?

I find it bizarre that so many posters here think there are this huge number of what they call "lurkers", who read but don't post. Too many people here believe that their web comments are reaching some crowd they can influence.

There are 10 visitors on the forum right now and they are most likely the same ones that are here everyday; the same ones who still believe as they did the first time the came here. The number rarely ever reaches 11, and that's usually only because my presence is registered at the time I check it.

I don't visit this forum enough to know which posters are JW or not. I'd have to visit the JW thread to check monikers AND read the comments; that's not something I care to do.

I only read a few of grandpa's comments because someone mentioned him by name and I thought I'd see what he was about. He's obviously someone who carries grudges to be carrying on a vendetta against the JWs so very many years after his falling out with them.

It doesn't matter which church he's dissing, just that he's been doing it for so long.

It's interesting, nanoanomaly, that you only ever see a few, ten or less, visitors to this forum.

Whenever I look at the counter, there are many. Right now, there are 77. At other times there are over 100. Where do you get your count from?

And, more importantly, why do you care so much if grandpasmurf wants to post hundreds or even thousands of posts a day? Why the vitriol toward him if he is so ineffective and reaching "nobody", considering that you are not even a JW and claim to have never been one?
