Re: Response to Paullesq
This is a response to Paullesq's Message 19 in the Think bigger think better. thread where he writes:

Where do i complain?
Inarticulate propositions sir, you skim read me, If you are interested and unsure of what i propose then please do ask.
It seems to me that you have focussed on the call to think deeper and not the theory.

The theory stands to reason by its own merit.

What separates this universe from a quantum universe?

Selection,selection selection. The three [4] types that i outline.
Primal selection, natural selection, human/intelligent selection.

Focusing just on this portion:

It seems to me that you have focussed on the call to think deeper and not the theory.

Yes, that's correct. That's because I'm moderating, not discussing. It's my job to focus on adherence to the Forum Guidelines and not on the specific technical details of the discussion. It is my judgment that what you're labeling a "call to think deeper" is an off-topic distraction. The obvious and equally inappropriate response is, "No, you're the one not thinking deeply enough," taking the discussion down an off-topic rat hole.

I also suggest again that you use dBCodes for quoting.

You went from being moderator to debater when you made the 'inarticulate proposition' jibe.
If you are moderating and skim reading the content of my posts then it is understandable how you reached that conclusion and made the charge. The call to think more deeply was a relevant to the debate because of the newness of the idea. There are thinkers here in your EvC forum and perhaps you see yourself as defending them when there is really no need. The call to think more deeply was supposed to be just a subject in passing.

My home pc has given up the ghost that is why i am unable to use dBCodes, hopefully this glich will be rectified by the end of next week.

You justified your violation of the Forum Guidelines by citing the difficulty of getting people to think more deeply. My assessment that any difficulty you felt you were experiencing was more likely rooted in the ill-defined nature of your ideas was based on a careful reading of all your posts here, as well as a number at a couple other discussion boards. My concerns in this area are supported by rule 4 from the Forum Guidelines

  1. Points should be supported with evidence and/or reasoned argumentation. Address rebuttals through the introduction of additional evidence or by enlarging upon the argument. Do not repeat previous points without further elaboration. Avoid bare assertions.

If your keyboard works you can use dBCodes. Let me know if you need help.

End of Thread
The Prisoner of Sin thread is at 445 posts and has run its course.
The originator is trying to initiate another topic.

Do you still have the 300 post limit?
Any plans to close it?

Thanks
PD

The thread Think bigger think better is devolving into personal attacks.

I don't think paulesq has added anything but mumbo-jumbo and personal attacks in quite while.

In other words. It needs active moderation.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Msg 236 in Fulfillments of Bible Prophecy, Jaywill has resorted to spamming us with fundie porn.

He is no longer arguing the topic. He has decided to post the url and topics of a fundie site. It has no business being on the forum.

Naughty words
I used naughty words in Message 188 and Message 51 and Message 52.

jaywill made his first complaint in Message 194 but despite my asking him to voice his concerns in this thread, he decided to move onto reiterating them in a different thread in Message 57.

This has had the consequence of inciting well meaning posters to argue that my posts do not contravene forum rules which has resulted in the thread becoming the smoking kindling for a flame war.

Since jaywill has decided to continue to stalk me around the boards looking for 'foul language' and attempting to goad me into debating it where it is off topic, I call for a moderator to make a decision as to how to handle things before they get completely out of hand.

Re: Problem post
I had noticed this just prior to you posting this message.

My impression of the moment is that it is a highly dubious and irrelevant reply to a moderately dubious and irrelevant message (300+ messages back) in a rather dubious topic.

Whatever quality once existed in that (now past 300 messages) topic seems to be well in the past. I'm thinking once again, that it's time to shut that topic down.

Or something like that.
