Are these posts authentic?

Postby lish1936 » Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:18 pm

Multiple posts with links noted by ac111971 in the Christians Writers Group.

Just wondering. I didn't notice the "lock" symbol, but it looks a bit suspicious to me. But I could be wrong :?

Blessings,

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Yeah, I'd say they look a bit suspect too. I wouldn't click the link. Also, I'm glad I saw this directing me to that forum. Someone was asking about writing groups in St. Louis. :)

I would not click on any of the links by this poster. I had started locking/reporting them for investigation by the Admin team, as that's all I can do. I didn't get a chance to finish them all at the time.

While the person MAY be legit, I feel they are only posting to promote an anti-Christian agenda, based on the content of the posts, without having checked the links, as I do not trust links by someone I do not know and that should be the standard procedure for all of us :)

Haven't seen them yet, but I've been busy for the last week and haven't been checking in. They are probably at the end of the "New Posts." So I'll go and check (if Mike and Bea haven't caught them first).

Okay, just checked them out. They are authentic, and they are safe to click on. However, they are from what appears to be a Muslim point of view, from what I can gather. Bit hard to follow. Probably should go in the Theology forum more than anywhere.

But as the person just came into the forums and started posting links to their articles, without getting involved at all, that's good enough reason to delete their account.
