The easiest way is to find one of their posts and click on their reputation number over on the right. It will then be revealed what to do.
Thanks. You got one point from me.

I asked why are people asking these questions on an atheist forum and not on a christian forum? The answer that I got was "We have tried but we just get banned." So I managed to work out a compromise with the Christian forum for those who might be interested can participate without fear of being banned solely on their opposing viewpoints. That's all.

Now I cannot guarantee that you won't get blasted by the occasional bigot (I use the term "occasional" very loosely). Rather i would expect it. I would expect that every single word of your posts will be pulled apart and scrutinized. A lot of facepalming will occur. You may feel like you are on trial in a "planet of the apes" movie. I would recommend walking in with thick skin and a positive attitude.

Also remember that the rules apply to both christians and non-christians. So if a bigot is being offensive...you can get them banned too.

Fair enough. I respect your efforts and I will think about it.

Sorry chas. I had no idea there was a limit to the number to reputation points you can give in a day. I will get to you tomorrow...unless I can somehow take someone's rep by giving them a negative so I can give it to you. Wink. Any suggestions on who I should take rep from?

I don't think it works that way. Consider

Thanks for the thought.

When has reason been worse than unreason?

I cannot think of a single instance in all of human history where a people have been worse off for being more reasonable.

Definitely think it would be more conductive to invite them over here. I'm fairly sure I cannot make 100+ posts without using profanity.
I am currently using funny cat memes to get my 100 post quota.

The Problem of Good
I'm not joining a forum where I have to prove myself to get permission to be told I refuse to believe and therefore I'm the idiot. And then hear constant apologetics and circular thinking. We have Q, Alla, and CartilageOTW for that.
