1. Do the Admins have a privileged thread of their own or communicate secretly behind the scenes by email to discuss the affairs of EvC?
2. Do the Admins ever clandestinely discuss other posters and conspire for or against them?
3. Do the Admins ever differentiate between reasonable opinionation and abject tyranny?
4. Why do the Admins appear so paranoid and afraid of losing control of this forum?

The whole purpose of admins is to keep a forum under control.
Fair enough, but there are no clear lines dawn here to differentiate an acceptable topic or post from one that is admonished or rejected by an Admin. For get you pompous rules. They are applied ambiguously. It is hard for me to understand why so many religious topics are admitted”such as "The divinity of Jesus"”that have nothing at all to do with evolution v. creationism; yet a perfectly good and relevant topic in science can be rejected on the opinionated whim of a self-promoting Admin. Seems like a lot personal preferences and private opinions rule amongst you lords of the boards instead pure objectivity. It's very hard to tell how or where you guys draw the line.
A question for you: What motivated you to propose this topic? Having problems?
Just curious. Sometimes I see evidence of petty conspiracy against me and other posters. Sometimes a favored poster can get away with literary murder. But if a poster has found disfavor with an Admin, or countered the Admin's argument effectively, he/she will be held to all the scientific peer reviewing and requirements of evidentiary documentation as if these boards amounted a refereed journal. Lots a hubris muscling around here!

Check this out with your local missionary of Christ. You may be ripe for the Lord's love and ready for His blessings and salvation.

Adrift!
...
we have been meeting,
as a group,
to devise ways
to keep you
in perpetual uncertainty
frustration
discontent and
torture
by neither loving you
as much as you want
nor cutting you adrift
...
Adrift! That's it! No sailor wants to be cut adrift!
Per Emily Dickinson's #30:
quote:
Adrift! A little boat adrift!
And night is coming down!
Will no one guide a little boat
Unto the nearest town?
So Sailors say”on yesterday”
Just as the dusk was brown
One little boat gave up its strife
And gurgled down and down.
So angels say”on yesterday”
Just as the dawn was red
One little boat”o'serspent with gales”
Retrimmed its mast”redecked it sails”
And shot”exultant on!

Question 6
6. Why are the Admin afraid of a little sunshine?
Post those clandestine threads so we all can see who are the favored ones and who are the schmucks.

Good visual! But bad partiality on your part. My objective on the polio thread was to illuminate the abject capitalism in America's medical-pharmaceutical complex. (Not sure though if I succeeded.) And just because you diagreed with me you have to accuse me of "absurd rantings in the polio thread."
This is exactly what I mean about the shallow end of the pond where the Admins puddle up.

An auto accident then? Or a fight? Or maybe a pit-bull attack?

Yes, quite right, probably just a food fight, nothing to worry about. Well, been nice knowing you...
Obviously, there is something I don't know. Mod, I hope my igorance has not insulted you.
