    Any suggestions on how to dismiss internal frustration when you see a brother say/act off the square?

    I was reading a blog earlier today written by a brother. In his writings, he said something along the lines of, "If you aren't Prince Hall, kill yourself."

    Joking or sarcasm aside, is that something that should be said? PHA or mainstream, is that a Masonic thing to say? It just hit my eyes wrong and kind of disappointed me.

    I've seen things like this before and it can sometimes be frustrating. Any thoughts?

    You can go to the site administrators forum and leave a message for the moderators. Tell them which thread, the user name and brief on problem? By sending it as a message only they will see it. Don't send as a quote.
    They will review and determine whether to give them a 3 day pass(time out), or other actions they see fit.

    Been there, done that too .

    Br. Blake Bowden is the Master of this wonderful site.

    God Bless and look forward to seeing you around the forum.

    A blog on this site? Blogs are for the most part unmoderated. Unless I have a report, I don't check them. Please report anything like this here to might see.

    No, not on this site. I was more referring to brethren I come across on my travels.

    If it was in person I might do something about it. However on the internet... well, if you have to fix every single idiot that's out there I hope you have plenty of time on your hands ;)

    I'm sure his Lodge Brothers and GL would like to know what he is putting out there.

    Didn't realize it wasn't on this site. Sorry for missing that.

    There are good and bad in every walk of life,
    Unfortunately this includes our Fraternity, or it could be someone claiming to be a Brother that's not.

    There are so many variables that it would be difficult at best to pursue. If you can find out who he is and his Lodge affiliation you could advise the Lodge of his activities, or leave him a message on his blog. Let him know that his diatribe is unMasonic, and see where it goes from there.

    Personally, I wouldn't waste the time on those who don't understand, nor want to understand what their obligation means to them. We can only correct what is in our abilities(range) to correct. Think about your obligation, and what it says about this situation.

    Yours, in his service.
