The original blog on this site, known as the “Cathedral Blog” is now “read only.” It is now archival in nature and one can no longer post to it or comment on the posts of another. Nothing on that blog can be edited or deleted except by the webmaster.  


Guidelines for Posting and Commenting on Pens-Opinion Blog

Registration and User Name:

To register to post and to comment on the posts of other registered users, please contact webmaster@pens-opinion.org Please specify email address and one user name (or handle) only. Using multiple email addresses to acquire multiple user names for the purpose of posting under multiple “personalities” is confusing to other readers and by nature is devious.

It is recommended that you use your real name as your user name, if possible. Your posts and comments will have more impact  by using your real identity. However, it is recognized that for professional reasons it may not be possible or wise to do so.

The above guidelines are for new user registration. If you already have a user name, it is not possible to change it without deleting your current user name and then re-registering as a new user.


Commenting on a Post:

Please do not use abusive language or attack the person that posted the blog to which you are addressing your comment. The issues surrounding the Crystal Cathedral Ministry understandably tend to generate a lot of passion but please keep your views civil and respectful.

Please confine comments to the original post topic. Each commenter is limited to four comments per post.

Please do not comment on your own comment,or “reply” to your own comment. This has been noted numerous time and leads to multiple “indents.”

Please DO NOT comment in all UPPERCASE (CAPITAL) letters.
