When you find a post that is too good to be missed, nominate it here as one of the February/March, 2013, Posts of the Month (POTM).

You message subtitle should include the author's name and the topic/thread title.

Message Format:

Author: Author's Name
Forum: Forum where posted
Thread: Thread title
Message #: Number and Link to the nominated message

Nominations should include a link to the nominated article, and a short comment on why the message deserves nomination.

Note: As always, this is not a thread for debates. Posts should be limited to nomination, seconds, congratulations, and acceptance statements by nominees.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Convert to February/March POTM topic.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Convert to "February and beyond, 2013" POTM topic.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Forgot comma.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Change topic title from "February and beyond, 2013 - Post of the Month" to "February, 2013, and beyond - Post of the Month"


Or something like that©.

Jar - Terrible message followed by a good message at "The Search for Moderate Islam"
First the terrible:

Author: Jar
Forum: Comparative Religions
Thread: The Search for Moderate Islam
Message #: 313

It was totally pointless and taught nothing. It is as stupid as a Search for Moderate Islam or moderate Christianity or moderate Buddhism. It seems pointless but it might employ a few folk and so that may be a saving grace.

To which Jon replied:

You're the fifth most active participant in this thread and all you can say now is that the topic is stupid?

To which Jar replied with "the good":

Author: Jar
Forum: Comparative Religions
Thread: The Search for Moderate Islam
Message #: 315

Someone needed to say it. The idea of searching for moderate Islam has got to be one of the silliest threads yet.

Moderate Islam, like moderate Christianity or moderate Buddhism or moderate Sikhism is everywhere. It is all the Muslims that do not make the news, the florists and grocers and lawyers and doctors and teachers and firemen and policemen and Imams and bankers and cab drivers and almost all the Muslims in the US and in the world. It's all the Muslims that just want to feed their families, not get killed, educate their sons and daughters and maybe even buy a new car for the wife to drive.

Now, if only Jar had posted message 315 instead of message 313.

Adminnemooseus (yes, the admin mode)

Please take any discussion of this (as a moderation action) to the General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') topic.
