The rules of the "Wading Pool" read: which I think is great. Now, concerning the bolded section, three questions: 1. Does this mean I need to be an elder or in another postion of authority to "believe ought to be permitted to reply"? 2. Or, can I seek permission if I have a specific question - about a specific line of answers - to the elders answering on the thread (and this a well thought out question which can make for interesting and edifying further conversation into the subject of LBCF Standards and the New Covenant vice WCF Standards and the New Covenant)? <---- this is the case and cause for my questions on this thread. 3. Finally, how do I ask? Private message to an Administrator? Is there a button I don't know about in the "Wading Pool"? Thanks in advance.
