"Neither the true faith nor eternal salvation is to be found outside the Holy Catholic Church."
--Pope Pius IX

“That the Conciliar Church is a schismatic Church, because it breaks with the Catholic Church that has always been. It has its new dogmas, its new priesthood, its new institutions, its new worship, all already condemned by the Church in many a document, official and definitive."
--Archbishop Lefebvre

you are the same person. You are only the first replier.

2nd.

Here's the thing: participating is an automatic loss, until you are the 16th person.  ;D

So, according to you, you have lost also.

What incentive is there to post?  Everybody up to the sixteenth person loses.

I'm sure we could find a good social lesson in it.

Like, reverse it and you have social security. :)

6th
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.

The problem here is that the OP, Habitual_Ritual, is not being counted as a "person who posted."  For some reason you're only counting the persons who respond, when the title simply stipulates "persons who post."  OP means "original poster."  He is someone who has posted.  He was the first person to post.  I think that makes Clare number eight, not seven.

I would be therefore "Number 9."

Fortunately, Habitual_Ritual is still an active forum member, so he can be called on to clarify in the event of a disputed win.
"The sneakiness of prigs, the conventicle secrecy, gloomy concepts like hell, like sacrifice of the guiltless, like unio mystica in drinking blood; above all, the slowly fanned fire of revenge, of chandala revenge—all that is what became master over Rome."

Why 16th?

Possibly the OP is a "B16er"—a subscriber to the conspiracy theory that Benedict XVI is still the pope despite his claims of retirement, and Francis is an antipope.  Or maybe he is a fan of Johnny Burnette's song "You're Sixteen" (or the Ringo Starr version).  Or "16 Candles" by The Crests, or the Molly Ringwald movie of the same name, Sixteen Candles.  But doubtless there is a greater numerology to sixteen than any of that.

Whatever the case, you are either the ninth or the tenth person to post in this thread.  I think I'll send a PM to Habitual_Ritual for a clarification on whether he, the OP, counts as one of the sixteen persons to post.

I have permission from the OP to publish here a clarification he sent me via private message:

Quote from: Habitual_Ritual
Technically and practically it does seem I was the first to post.

That makes Martin number ten.  Subsequent posters should be counted from there.  Tomorrow will mark the third anniversary of the creation of this thread.
