Hello everyone. I've just joined this group after being away from the OAC for a couple of years due to what I am about to talk about. Just recently, 12 weeks ago, my father passed away 4 days after his 70th birthday. He was terminally ill with various illness' including but not limited to Pulmonary Fibrosis. Dad was given a maximum of 5 years to live just under 10 years ago. He fought his conditions bravely and with composure when there were people around who were not close family. Dad had…See More
"My thoughts exactly. I don't want to drudge up recent history, suffice to say some know what I am referring to, and referring back to my statement above it is difficult for me to give you the proof you demand. I can say this however, take a…"
"I can see how people think their comments are not "good enough" to be posted on the OAC especially when I read comments in reply to those of us, yes I count myself in the uneducated masses group, that are veiled put downs. We all…"
"I fail to see how the problem could be solved if we don't know what the problem actually is. It can certainly be alleviated/masked, but solved?
If the individual feels the therapist didn't find the real cause you could try to ascertain…"
You have chosen an extremely broad topic. If I may make a couple of suggestions (being someone who has the condition to a certain extent) I would try to break it up into smaller areas such as Medical (i.e. physical), Psychological,…"
"I was on of the people "Angela" sent a message to. I googled the email address and "she" was all over Ning.
I think you will find Ning needs to move to IP blocking not just email address blocking because these people and bots,…"
I wasn't going to say anything for a while as I got the impression that my participation was taking this thread in a direction outside of its scope or its intended path. I do apologise for thinking of the technicalities but I do…"
"Jacob, I'm not sure if you have taken hold of my initial comment and gone running with it or what is going on.
"Your an Admin who needs to be able to see the things you mentioned. Do the rest of us need to see this though? Some features can be turned off for "regular" members while still being available for Admin to see, at least I think they…"
I am looking at the main page, I have two tabs open in FF at once, and I see Josh Wells has joined a huge number of groups each one having its own announcement in the activity section. Keith has sent Josh Wells a message and Keith has…"
"@ Jacob. I use Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox and Chromium. I also have access to Windows with IE and it doesn't matter what OS and browser combination there are times the Tab links don't work. I admit I use NoScript in FireFox but that can…"
"Hello Keith, Admin team, everyone
Being a "semi-regular" poster these are my observances.
It seems to me that navigating around the OAC isn't as easy as it appears.
The tabs bar at the top has tabs that don't actually lead to…"

Thank you for replying to my post. The discussion has been closed by an Administrator because it did not meet some sort of guidelines. I am not sure exactly what those guidelines are but am trying to find out.
The internet is a free forum and everyone can participate. I appreciate scholars like Alice who give their time to answer questions and discuss issues with people outside of academia. The intention of my message was to disaprove of the tone of some of your posts. My experience with the information Alice presented was much different. The riverine culture of the Sudra and their kinship system is spot-on. I would love to hear more.
I differ with Alice on location of Eden (sort of) but only because of the symbolism of the word "gan". It is an ancient word but it still implies building an enclosure. Eden is a place on the map and it is called Aiden. The Sudroid culture may have begun on the Jos plateau but the building of the garden occured near Aiden.
