Oh the loudness of the whisper…

Gossip, slander, guile;  all with a desire to demean.

Image result for imagine john lennon

An opportunity of sorts has arisen to see the intent and motivation running rampant in blogsville, and is a great learning aid, but unfortunately it is common and  no surprise. I will not add to the traffic of this blogger by giving him pr at my expense, but, in further news…

A man on his own site in speaking to the unbelieving choir, needed a few people to boost his ratings, and wrote: ‘Imagine trying to talk to CS or David?’ (Emphasis mine, and David is a believer). Of course the context is the ‘absurdity’ of believers opinions………..To this there is no gripe, as far worse things have been, and will be written, but since I was mentioned, was happy to send a short response:

‘Imagine? In the words of John Lennon: It’s easy if you try……but people have fingers in their ears and cannot hear.’

I thought it was a half way decent observation, drawing on a famous song, and citing the bloggers own words.

This is what the host changed and wrote attached to my avatar, clearly representing me in a way never intended, and a complete stranger would have no clue the comment was amended:

‘Imagine?’ In the words of John Lennon: it’s easy if you try,  but I always have fingers in my ears, no wonder I never understand anything ……………..’

This is purposeful and malicious slander. Deleting a comment is one thing, adding a ‘note’ to highlight something is one thing,  but to misrepresent a person willfully is kinda stupid, shows character flaws, and is not too smart when one wants to promote a ‘higher intellect.’

I responded of course by asking if this poster believed his readers would not know he changed my words, and again using my avatar, and pretending this came from me, he said this:

‘I am pervert mak. …………….
It has taken me ages to accept this.’

Sooooooo, who in their right mind could possibly believe I said this? I’m guessing even the regular patrons took offense at the egregious liberty taken by casting aspersion on a person who was simply responding in a decent manner.

My guess? This blogger will receive private emails from saner friends, and these comments will disappear. But the point was made, and the damage done, not to me mind you, but to the credibility of the host.  In the minds of many, he may not be able to recover from such deep-seated disgrace.

This is a silver lining though, for many will see the true colors of unbelief, and the total unreasonableness of such dark and loud whisperings. ‘Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.’

In the meantime, is there a person who could possibly defend such offence? Not the difference of opinion, but the blatant cunning craft of deception. Ebb and flow, plus and minus, agree and disagree, indeed, such is the nature of conversation, but to change 100 per cent the intent of a comment? Not too smart.

To draw attention to a remark by way of a ‘note’ is one thing. I have done it, we all have done it, it is a useful tool in blogging. But to CHANGE a comment  intentionally, and to assign quotes, words, or thoughts never given…………oh the wiles and devices, the scheming of men that boasts of mental prowess.  Please.

Ye true friends of that great god unbelief, take another look at such devious behavior and ask yourself why you are attracted to this kind of ‘light.’

The insane commenting by the proud members of the unbelieving community have done a great service in shining this ‘light,’ and many would not blame you if you ran from such influence.

C’mon ye friend’s of blogsville, let’s hear some reasonable defense of such antics. Didn’t think so. Certain things cannot be defended.

  1. It really is indefensible behavior and something the weak and fearful do when they do not trust in the strength of their own convictions. Also, it is a fairly common internet tactic that needs to be demolished. I call it the behavior of middle school mean girls because it is a form of ridicule and shaming that originated on social media among troubled young girls. To watch grown men (and sometimes women) engage in it is enough to make me despair for all of mankind.

          Sorry, don’t even know what that means.

          In case you’re not aware, CS edits other people’s comments all the time. And I mean, all the time. There are three comments of mine he hasn’t allowed here, although none are rude. I guarantee that. I replied to Insanity, but CS doesn’t want anyone to see what i wrote. He censors, edits, deletes, alters and changes the comments.

          So, its hilarious that CS is here whining about someone editing his comments, yet it is exactly what he does.

          Hypocritical behaviour is always funny, don’t you think?

          Your defense of your ‘friend’ is reprehensible. But you are doing the usual fine job of steering away from the seminal point made here.

    ‘Internet tactic.’ Yep.

    One redeeming quality here ib22, is that God said exactly this would occur 😉 He is not surprised by it, nor am I. But you are correct, it should be pointed out at every opportunity, and called what it is. Puzzling though how one could defend it.

    Do I remove vile content? Yep. Do I add an occasional note? Yep. But to change completely, say something not intended…………and play the devious spin meister?

    At the end of the day though, it’s all about the wattage in the bulb……………….. 😉

      I would also add that every time I’ve seen you edit a comment CS, you make it abundantly clear that any added commentary is done by YOU, which is as different as night and day with attributing wrongful statements to someone else.

      Geesh, I am at this point not at all surprised any more by what I seen in comments sections across the Internet. It does do one favor though as you imply, as it clearly sets apart those floundering in darkness from those in light.

      God speed my friend. 🙂

    When we encounter those who have no moral accountability or restraints, there is no use trying to reason with them because you can’t reason with a crazy person. It doesn’t matter how smart or intellectual they are; they’re crazy, and you would be casting precious pearls before swine who will turn and rend you.. So, don’t even waste your time. Just “walk through the midst of them” as the Lord Jesus did, In the Holy Spirit, it is nothing more than a puff of nothingness that has no real power to harm us.

    That’s why I am opting to not respond to every insane comment, as most have nothing to do with an actual post. Of course, then it gets characterized as not having a rebuttal to a ludicrous and blasphemous argument. Nanner, nanner boo boo I won I won! You won’t argue with me, so I must be right!

    Wow, I never thought of someone doing that! To moderate a comment is one thing but to completely change a comment and misrepresent someone is really wrong and actually quite cowardly since instead of answering your comment he had to change it. I wonder how any of his readers could ever trust him to leave a comment again.

    Just IMAGINE THIS, John-

    A nervy ‘Christian’ woman, professional journalist, blatantly committed the greatest literary offense of PLAGIARISM and victimized someone close to me. She promotes herself by stealing the work of others. How do I know? The author according to Drgold ‘lifted about 2/3 of my original paper, about 2,000 of the 3,000 words in ‘AMERICA IN STEEP DECLINE- WHEN A NATION REJECTS GOD’, without any reference or credits’. http://drgoldsite.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/america-in-steep-decline-when-a-nation-rejects-god/

    She passed it off as her own work in ‘Omega Letter-WHAT’S THIS WORLD COMING TO?’
    YEAH, MAN! GOOD QUESTION! WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?!
    This is PLAGIARISM we’re talking about- unconscionable, without excuse!!! Yes, do check it out:
    http://www.omegaletter.com/articles/articles.asp?ArticleID=8049&SearchFor=lawlessness

    Have you noticed if there has been an absence of referring to sources and foregoing references in blog posts of the more serious topics? Or is the lack of professional ethics and blogging etiquette that is becoming more prevalent in the blogging community? The point is that even the ‘unschooled’ in writing/journalism would recognize a liar and a cheat who dares to copy and paste somebody else’s work that they spent many hours researching and writing. I wonder what your readers think about having their blog sites compromised by unscrupulous writers.

I write Short, Simple, Succinct and I hope, for the Sophisticated to the Simpleton.

        John, you are as a breath of fresh air to me, a huge encourager in your own way. But the masses really aren’t interested and tuned into our frequency. They do not accept that there is One God, Almighty God in Heaven as in Acts 17:23-24, Psa 95:3, Psa 135:5, therefore it is fruitless to carry on a discussion with such individuals. Those who will be honest with themselves will agree that to do so would only be an utter waste of their time as well. BTW, a popular post on my blog site is ‘Why Do People Resist God’. I am still trying to figure that one out myself and hope that an addendum may be written soon for those who are really interested, that they may find peace within themselves. God bless you dear brother in the Faith. -Liz

          As far as hearing and knowing the pure notes of God’s songs, ‘It’s easy if you try.’ 😉

          Perversion of God’s words since the beginning: ‘Hath God said?’ only increase, but the same resource then, is still available today to halt the attempted inroads of that insidious angel of light.

          We are not ignorant of such devices, and thankfully, God’s word is forever settled in heaven.
