Maybe my English is not good enough to detect a hidden message between the lines, but I understood it as a simple acknowledgement of the fact the website started as a more dedicated community to crucifixion in its original form. And in that case, the original members and moderators have their rights to keep their site exclusive to that theme, but they chose not to, hence “tolerating” it becoming a community for broader interests.You are the one who pontificated on high about "tolerance toward non-crux topics on the site." What pray tell did that mean except that those topics are off-topic, inferior, and not worthy as crux? You do not tolerate your equals. Tell me how else to read that?
So, in my case, I didn’t take it as offensive even when I almost exclusively contribute and peruse non-crux contents on this website myself.
