Yep you read it right , stop. Just stop.
I acknowledge the need for a “Dead Horse Thread” I do. It is one thread where we as members can go to and bond over silly shit. It helps us get the giggles out, and that is fine. Hell, a little levity is never really a bad thing.
But holy shit, every thread is turning into a new Dead Horse. I don’t know everyone’s reason for joining this forum, but ask yourself before you post “Is this why I came here?”
I joined because E.A. impressed the hell out of me. It was a combo of Evoking Eternity and Hands on Chaos Magic that helped me turn my life around, and connect with the spirit world in a deep way. I wanted to know more about E.A. and those who use his material, I wanted help where I fell short and to help others when I could.
And oh my god, let me tell you this place was a Heaven on Earth when I joined. I was welcomed, I was pushed, I found people like Frater A, Andreeje, and TWFwho would take me aside and give me tips and encouragement. I progressed faster than I thought possible because of the wonderful community here.
Where are Cloud9, Kitari, Tiberius_James and others who posted here with tales and tips that enlightened and inspired? Why do we settle for less, why to we settle for degrading ourselves to the Occult equivalent of poop jokes?
This forum has a bad reputation on other Occult Sites, and it is not because they are jealous.
So my proposal is for us all to stop, really think about what you are going to post. Constructive criticism is always welcome, but if you and another are bickering across 12 pages PLEASE take it to the PM.
I want to get back to the awe inspiring forum this place was, we can do it, we all have the potential to achieve greatness in us. A little discipline is not too much to ask.
