And the sooner the better. In fact, I think all the topic headings which he started should be removed as well, but that's just my opinion.

I think Datt is the most spiritually connected swami of the godly realm for which the cow jumped over the moon and brids sing with their song lifted to heaven for which no air of consciousness can proclaim his....ah, bullshit. Dump him!

Okay guys, unlike God, I believe in second chances after death (assuming being deactivated on a message board is like death). Had a little chat with Dattaswami, and he says he understands the problem, and has requested to be reinstated. So I'm going to let him back in, but if he (you, Dattaswami, if you're reading this) starts flooding us with posts again, then the deactivation will be permanent. I figure this still puts me morally ahead of the Christian God, as I have opted for annihilation, as opposed to eternal torment.

I look forward to seeing if he can restrain himself. He is sometimes good for a good laugh, when you can bear to read his ramblings.

Isn't it interesting that there's one person on the forums who feels he/she needs dattaswami in order to become enlightened? If I had to guess, I'd go for spongebob, but you never can tell.... :D

I find more value in the teachings of Daniel Jackson than that the mighty Datta ;)

Banished from Ascension? I had no idea. You're right, I'll bet he has a lot of wisdom to impart, if he ever gets his memory back.

So let me get this straight Emery... If he doesn't play by the rules and show you respect, then you'll ban him from our presence forever. Very interesting...

Nice try, Norton. Don't think that I can't see the false analogy you're trying to set up. But, you're free to try, just don't hurt yourself too much :wink:

Right Emery, unless Norton is trying to say that outside this forum one can hear weeping and wailing and the gnashing of teeth. That indeed, banishment from this forum is akin to eternal punishment of the most horrific kind.

Hmmm...

You know, I like posting here a whole bunch, but I don't think that my life would be totally ruined should you banish me. But like Emery said, 'Good Try!'
