Just to introduce another item into this consideration. It seems that the number 12 or its multiples in the Bible always appears as literal, never symbolic. Jacob's 12 sons (males) were exactly 12   The 12 tribes of Israel were actually 12, not 13   The Levitical priesthood was organized in a multiple of 12, namely 24 divisions (1Chr 24: 1-19)   The recruitment of assistants and officers who served David were organized in groups of 24,000 per month

It would also resolve the issue of there having been more than a million partakers who faced death for their Christian faith rather than give a pinch of incense to the Roman emperor, or contaminate their conscience with other forms of idolatry or blood. It's either that or explicitly allow for the idea that an earthly hope had been opened up generally to Christians before 1935.

This is correct. Russell never took the place of Christ before his Church. Christ was the Head of the Body, and Russell would never consider himself the "Head" of the Body of Christ. This doesn't mean that Russell would ever have admitted that any other person could be God's "mouthpiece." Russell only said this about himself, and no one else. Also Russell printed letters that addressed himself as "the faithful and wise servant." He printed no letters that identified anyone else as that "faithful

I used to hate it even more when our teenage soon would  watch something with us. He would casually say: mum, that's nothing, I hear that at school all day....

I worked with an IT consultant who was on the autism spectrum, and he swears (!!) that when he was growing up he thought swear words were part of a special language only used by school-children. He never heard these words from grown-ups or his straight-laced parents.

In my entire life, I only heard my dad swear once. Long ago, when entirely families would swim at the beach, a group of teens walked by and one of them said “s**t” He reared up like a grizzly bear and hollered that there were decent families around, and they scattered. If they ridiculed him, it wasn’t till they were far away.

The one time I heard his swear was when he was 90 with dementia. He would ask the same question over and over again, each time immediately forgetting the answer. It weirded my brother out, and he tried responding by just ignoring him. “G******T, ANSWER ME when I talk to you!!” he roared, and my brother never did that again.

”C’mon bro” I said. “You just can’t ignore him. Answer him. It doesn’t matter what you say. You don’t have to translate and come up with the right answer. Say anything. He’ll forget it. But you can’t just ignore him like he were a bratty child.

Not so sure about DaVinci Dy Savage 😂

I’m sure I let some sleazeballs and if they act up once, they’re gone. I delete more readily now. But the reason I did not from the get-go is due to what you said about varying standards of dress. If the profile pic is okay, they’re in. I may later find I was too hasty. Immodest dress in itself will not ban them, but a deliberate strutting ones stuff, trying to be as provocative as one can, will get them the boot. It is sort of pathetic really, and sad, and not anywhere near as provocative as some of these ones seem to think. But I’m getting tired of doing this. I am either going to show up with a ruler, just like teachers in old-time high school, or I’m going to insist upon everyone wearing barrels.

Wow and you said you;d blocked me. :) 

My 'thoughts' are consistent. 

I did, but occasionally I get curious. It's like when you smell something bad and for some reason you have to go back and smell it again just to be sure. Why do we do that? It's not going to smell good the second time is it?

Because the 'something that smells bad' to you, is giving you a warning.  Then you, make choices as to how you deal with the warning.
