Steve Ray's Catholic Convert Message Board
Reviewed, sort of, at Ut Unum Sint.
.... Steve seems to be a nice guy, and a good Catholic -- but he's busy, and doesn't have time to police his message board. And the person who is there as monitor, "Della" (pseudonym), just doesn't do an effective job. Result? The place is a bowl of granola -- fruits, nuts and flakes -- with the regular posters tending to be those who like to dish out criticism of the Catholic Church and its bishops, and who come very close to supporting schismatic Traditionalists. Do they get zapped for this? No. But Mark Shea is told to apologize for expressing his frustration with it....
As I have mentioned before, I used to post there (using a pseudonym) regulary and frequently. No more. And for pretty much the reasons Bill has sketched though way back when, the main problem was blockheaded and/or vitriolic anti-Catholic Protestants; at about the time I got out, the RadTrads were just starting to make their way in. Unfortunately, and for some reason I can't quite fathom, the moderator does not really moderate though I suspect it is simply because she is not allowed to do so by the owner.
Having said that, the board is usually worth a visit, if only to read SecretAgentMan and Edwin (Tait).
