This board, like all boards, has some limitations.
The strength this board has is its moderators,and then the good people who have gathered here.
Limitations are , but not limited too;
1: No one knows me personally, and there is no other third party to say, "Oh, I know Stirbaby, hes [ a. a big fat jerk, b: satan in blue jeans, or c: a nicer than average guy]"
2: We come to this board with different voices, but in they end they are all boiled down to litle marks on a computor screen.
3: New people coming in without any background and then just jumping in the conversation.
4: Old friends just dissappear and are never heard from again.
I apreciate that I am able to really go off here and not get burned allive.
You have shown me a lot of tolarance and grace. Thank you.
That all to say I am not trying to be the expert. I really do need to listen more than talk.
It just happens that I feel so comfortable with you, and the others, and the quality of the board speak here is pretty intellegent, I feel like its OK to just say my opinion.
I do not want to were out my welcome.
I like it here.
" We beseech and demand... that you accept the Church and the Superior Organization of the whole world and recognize the supreme Pontiff, called the Pope, and that in his name you acknowledge the King and Queen... his representatives, as the lords and superior authorities of these islands and main lands...
If you do not do this, or resort maliciously to delay, we warn you that, with the aid of God, we will enter your land against you with force and will make war in every place and by every means we can and are able, and we will then subject you to the yoke and authority of the church and of their Highnesses.
We will take you and your wives and children and make them slaves...
And we will take your property and will do you all the harm and evil we can..."

--The Requerimiento (read by Spanish Conquistadors to the people of the "New World" )
