Indefinite suspensions
AZPAUI3 - since it is a clear reference to AZPaul3.
I also suspended Pilsner/Pilsner2 due to Message 74
Pilsner2
and \' for being the same person as Pilsner/Pilsner2. I didn't merge them because I decided to go to bed instead.

Re: reebokjerseyon Suspended Indef
It might be too late now, but if you recall the websites being promoted I've found after emailing them that they're frequently surprised to discover that the money they paid to improve their site's visibility in search engines was being used to spam bulletin boards.

archaeologist - 24 hours
The suspension hovertext message:
24 hours - At the risk of being accused of being biased, my impression is that archaeologist is posting a LOT of messages which largely consist of incoherent babbling (or something like that). The admin staff will need to consult on this situation, but for now it needs to stop. - Adminnemooseus

archaeologist - 24 hours -- Being lifted real soon
To Archaeologist:
First of all, please see Admin's message here. He is much better and more eloquent at outlining situations.
The messages I cite in my previous message vary in quality (of course, this is a IMHO). At least one is pretty good but overall things were looking pretty poor.
An eternal problem at this forum is dog piling on the creationist. It is very tough for moderators to control - About all we can do is ask those of the evolution side to have some restraint, and they tend to be pretty poor at restraint. The only really solid way to deal with dog piling is the "Great Debate" forum. The there debate is rigidly defined to be between two (or occasionally more) specific individuals. Non-specified contributor messages are very subject to ruthless content deletion.
Last night, at the suspension time, I was at a loss to explain what was happening, other than that it was a bad thing. My thoughts now, are that the load of replies to you was essentially triggering a panicked response mode - Something like, you felt the need to put out responses that you were not ready to do. In a sense, I suspended you to protect you from yourself.
So, take it easy - A few selective higher quality responses are far more impressive than many low quality responses.
The suspension will be lifted right after I post this message. I sort of have the attitude that it's always an option to shortening a too long suspension. Or something like that.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.
There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.
Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150

Nuimshaan, 24 hours
The suspension hovertext message:
24 hour suspension - Great piles of off or non-topic blather at the Should we teach both evolution and religion in school? topic - Adminnemooseus
I started at the current topic end (message 129) hiding blather messages. As I moved upthread they just kept showing up.
Nuimshaan, after your 24 hour suspension is up, if and when you post again, please try to give us a hint that you have a clue of what a topic theme is.
