another one
Here's another charmer from Dr. A who really should get more than a wrist slap for doing this to so many of us so frequently. This isn't debate. Perhaps it should be called hate speech.

Re: another one
You've caught me a minute before dinner and I always review thread context before taking action. Perhaps another moderator can handle this. Dr A knows better, I guess he wants a vacation. If he wants to mitigate the action perhaps if he notices this he can edit his replies so that they instead read like explanations of why he found your quoted comments problematic.

As I indicated in my post, because they are an attempt to hijack the thread and make it about nonsense she's been corrected on a thousand times. This problem precludes me from arguing with her about the other things that make her post stupid, since if I did so I would be contributing to her derail.

Incidentally, did you read the post I was replying to? The pot is running to the head scullion and complaining "But the kettle called me b-b-b-blaaack!"

Dr. A again
I'm debating as honestly as I can and Dr. A's typical insults are distracting and offensive: Message 30 (I responded to him in Message 31.)

Also it appears I used the wrong thread for my last objections to insults. They should have been on this thread. That's 836 and 837 on the Discuss Moderation thread.

Thanks.

PaulK
I routinely put up with PaulK's snarling venom-dripping personal attacks, but I don't see why I should. He seems incapable of making a point about the topic without accusing me of something. I'm finally complaining about this latest one.

Thanks for your attention.

Re: PaulK
Message 252, Message 254 and Message 255 do not rise to the level of requiring moderator attention.

Need some clarification on a possible topic
Could the Mods take a look at Message 230 and see if expanding into how Christianity markets Jesus would be off topic?

Re: Need some clarification on a possible topic
I would think that it fits nicely in my current thread. After all, it does pertain to Christian marketing.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

"On the Origin of Life" Thread
In typical Pressie fashion, he/she/it has gone off in a rather unhinged-and-unjustified manner against Lomu. See Message 14. I suggest some sort of disciplinary action, but ofc that's up to the mods.

Three
I suppose I should have a tougher hide by now but it seems to be getting thinner rather than tougher. For that reason I don't really expect anything to be done about my complaints, but it makes me feel better to register them.

In this case, Dwise at message 126 on the OEC-YEC thread for his last two sentences which in my opinion step over the line into personal attack. PaulK's message 125 right above it deserves a dishonorable mention for unfair debate tactics. And NoNukes has been way over the line just in attitude in many posts on the thread, though he seems to have had a change of heart in his latest.

Thanks for your ear.

Concerning Problems Reported at the OEC vs YEC Issues Thread
There have been a couple recent reports concerning problems at the OEC vs YEC Issues thread. Before examining the problem messages (Message 126 and Message 148) I began reading the thread from the beginning. The problems seem to begin much earlier. This is from Faith's Message 55:

Faith in Message 55 writes:

Since there is no way anyone will ever agree with me here I am reduced to simply asserting that my interpretation is the correct one and yours are all ridiculously inadequate.

...Take it or leave it.

I'm done with this.

This is from Faith's Message 56:

Faith in Message 56 writes:

One last OBVIOUS point and then you can all go back to your silly meaningless gibbering.
...
NOW I'm done.

It is requested that all participants make a good faith effort to concentrate discussion on the evidence and arguments and not introduce inflammatory comments that invariably distract from the topic.

I haven't posted to the thread because I may want to participate, but I haven't yet read to the end.

Seems to be some problem here Message 1

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

In the name of diversity, college student demands to be kept in ignorance of the culture that made diversity a value--StultisTheFool

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" demands that the US be tolerant of everything except its own past, culture, traditions, and identity.
