You might have a point. If you could help me understand something then I can make a decision on this. The general perception by myself & the posters here is that your post itself was a joke. Therefore it has provoked some light-hearted banter which does not automatically fall into the domain of name-calling.

If you read OT2's post which kind of sums things up, you'll see how people either get that impression or else think that you're a pro-Family apologist. And then there's the odd handle you've chosen -- LBFM. People have chosen unusual pen names in the past but generally know that they're inviting humorous comments when they do so.

If you were making a sincere comment about contacting the Family & weren't simply being sarcastic, that's another matter. It would also help if you explain yourself a bit. I'd like to have a uniform standard here but still avoid censuring what appears to be normal humor.
