Delete the cheers, it's infantile and narcissistic.

Don't delete the cheer, it's infantile and narcissistic and fun.

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

I agree

What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Covid conspiracy misinformation
It appears that suddenly EvC has become a hotbed platform for Covid conspiracy nutjobs to spew dangerous fraudulent bullshit about science and public health. If this is what EvC is morphing into then there is nothing of value here. I participate here to read and learn and discuss actual science, not bullshit propaganda from nutjobs who are intent on destroying civilization.

This is no longer Understanding Through Discussion.

I seem to recall that Faith was banned for this. We need some consistency.

Re: Covid conspiracy misinformation
More news to me. Was wondering what happened to Faith. Not surprised. The latest spreaders of lies and disinformation seem to be even worse than some of what she was.
There needs to be consistency and public health threats need to be dealt with decisively.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Covid conspiracy misinformation
They’re trolls. Porkncheese has enough form on this forum to say so with certainty. “drlove” is certainly acting trollishly enough to be all but certain. Likely they’re both fully vaccinated.

Took me less than one day to realize that. Percy needs to put the trolls under their rock.

I was against the banning of Faith, although I never communicated such to anyone.

Faith was posting nonsense, but at least her messages were concise, coherent, and easily refuted. Faith's messages were good starting points to put out quality counter-information, that otherwise wouldn't appear in this forum.

Porkncheese, on the other hand, is putting out vast piles of Gish gallop bullshit. I am inclined to be in favor of permanently banning Porkncheese.

Crashfrog complained about the ratings some years ago, and as a joke I wrote some code that displayed my Percy rating as 11 on pages displayed under Crashfrog's account, but he never noticed and I removed the code years ago.

For what it's worth... I find that hillarious :]
