Molbiogirl - 1 week suspension
Molbiogirl has returned after a one month absence and has posted a series of messages consisting largely of (more or less) caustic one-liners, at the "Good Calories, Bad Calories, by Gary Taubes" topic.
This is a difficult situation in that the only admin having any interest in that topic is Admin/Percy, who is the topic starter and also the primary participant. As such, he has disqualified himself from doing any moderator activity there.
At the risk of being or appearing to be a puppet admin and/or brown-noser, I must say that Percy has a long history of posting high quality messages. Molbiogirl, on the other hand, has a shorter history of often being caustic. I believe I have previously suspended her at least once, long before the current contentious topic came into existence.
Or something like that.

Brian, Dr Adequate, Bluegenes - Each get a 3 day suspension
I figured I'd take them out of circulation here for the holiday weekend.

Dr Adequate hovertest message:

A fine little collaboration they have going, in the Discovery or Ignorance: The Choice Is yours? topic. Anyone else doing like messages?

Artemis Entreri - 24 hour suspension
For ongoing troll like behavior and, in general, poor quality messages.
Example: See here and up-thread.
This forum is primarily a text based exchange of ideas. Plastering the site with YouTube videos doesn't cut it. Post your thoughts and use links, YouTube video, etc. as support.
Also - Get to having a good relationship with your keyboard's "shift" key. Persistently neglecting to capitalize words correctly, especially at sentence beginnings, tends to really piss me off.

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. Source

John 10:10 suspended for 12 hours
see Message 65
John 10:10 has apparently not read the thread where many requests to stay on topic have been made. This will give him time to figure out what that means and maybe to find some evidence to support ID.

Hoot Mon for 48 hours
Due to Message 3, he had previously been warned in Message 1 to avoid doing this very thing on pain of suspension, I wasn't joking.

AlphaOmegaKid suspended for 24 hours
see Message 128
AlphaOmegaKid doesn't seem to want to discuss in an intellectually honest fashion.
He has yet to indicate that he has read any of the facts presented to him. He continues to think he is funny instead of just obviously avoiding what has been given in reply to his posts.
