Posted this Message 56 after I had posted Message 56. More childish goading only makes these threads get even more out of hand.
Other members that posted afterwards only just managed to escape from the suspensions by the skin of their teeth.
Edited by AdminModulous, : No reason given.

Nighttrain about to get a 4 hour suspension
For doing numerous messages of dubious to downright drivel content. The suspension will get his attention and put the situation into "The Public Record".
The recent message trail includes (not all are necessarily unacceptable, but none are all that great):
EvC Forum: How did Monkeys get to South America?
EvC Forum: Evolution guided by god? Or a natural process?
EvC Forum: Which Version of the Bible is the Word of God?
EvC Forum: The Neanderthal Genome is out (preliminary)!!!
EvC Forum: Are there two Christs in the Bible?
EvC Forum: 51 scientific facts that disprove the Bible
EvC Forum: How will creationists react to the first human-chimp hybrid?
EvC Forum: Who & what are the demons ?
EvC Forum: Quote mining? The Pilbeam quote...

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.

Black - Indefinite but not necessarily permanent suspension
The suspension hovertext message:
This. Suspended until an admin decides to lift suspension. - Adminnemooseus
Adminnemooseus
Also, added by edit: Somewhere along the line, Blacks suspension was lifted with any record in this topic.
Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Turn on "signature".
Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Fix URL, which got fouled up in the software upgrade.

Bertot 1 week suspension
The suspension hovertext message:
1 week suspension. Bertot comes back from a 24 hour suspension and promptly replies to the end of a string of messages that triggered his and anothers suspension. Right below an Admin message. Screams "kick me in the head - hard". - Adminnemooseus

Kelly 24 hours
Constantly off topic, constantly repeating the same points. After a variety of Forum Guideline violations newbie leeway time has come to an end. See Message 203 for the straw that broke the camel's back.

traste does it again
traste doesn't seem to be willing to debate like a grown-up. He'll start to get longer suspensions if he continues to behave as he is.

traste, 48 hours - lyx2no, 24 hours.
The traste suspension hovertext:
48 hours. See here and upthread. Permanent suspension is something to be considered. - Adminnemooseus
The lyx2no suspension hovertext:
12 hours. See here. Feeding and/or becoming one with troll, or something like that. Make that 24 hours, see also here. - Adminnemooseus
A minimum of a 1 week sounds like a good plan for next time for traste, should this behavior continue.
lyx2no, why are you letting him drag you down to his level?
