Re: Give Refpunk a Thread
...but because when someone is rushing around dragging other threads off topic, it seems a good idea to give him one of his own, so he can get all of his obsessions off his chest...

Seconded.

I've suggested having an introductory forum before ...

Besides I have a junkyard to dump on him.

Re: Give Refpunk a Thread - in coffeehouse ...
Looks like his topic would have to be promoted to coffeehouse for him to participate. That would suit his inability to deal with reality eh?

Basic Fundamentals of the Debate Thread
Message 121
As I mentioned in my previous post as Percy, I find this thread's topic area to be far too broad for a single thread. I invite RAZD and MurkyWaters to propose new topics over at Proposed New Topics where discussion can resume, but each proposal should cover only a single topic.

I have no problem with that. Murk has not dealt with any of the issues other than having a protracted discussion on the definition of the theory of evolution, where he insists on his definition in spite of evidence that it is incorrect.

His definition of evolution is also wrong, so he needs to start with that (then with what a scientific theory is ...)

Perhaps suggest he take this up on the Definition of Evolution, where he can join with Ray in missing the points. But I wouldn't expect any different behavior from him compared to what he has done on the GD thread.

Message 120
I have noticed that RAZD will invite newcomers into private debates just after they've joined.

Uh, no, I do not. I don't really like Great Debates. I invite you to find all the numerous instances where I have done so.

Instances where using the Great Debate forum has come up that I can recall include one with S1WC regarding his "essay" (and which was taken up by Anglagard), the one for the topic in question, the spin off with S1WC on Age of the Earth (as he only participates in GD threads), a couple of issues with "Simple" (as he complained about being in certain science forums), and ones like the recent request made by Vasgun (Message 7 - and one I will not be taking up as I think the topic is pretty well covered already).

I did a search on "great debate" with only my posts and came up empty on any other instances.

Also, the discussion you and Murk were having has nothing to do with Murks perception of "RAZ dodges and stonewalls again" so the subtitles should be changed. Murk makes lots of complaints, but never shows the basis for them, and this title is based on one of those.

Message 120 again
Since you've been primarily closeted here in this forum ...

At his own preference, after being piled on for his posts like Message 81 shortly after starting here. It is a problem with new creationist posters (especially the verbose ones that do a gish gallop type post, like Murk did on Galapagos Finches),

Enjoy.

Re: Vashgun aka Highestevolvedwhiteguy
And the evidence just keeps mounting:

Or there could be a simple explanation.

This thread is not for discussing member behavior, but to discuss moderator procedures.
Please cease this line of discussion.

tips
Further to DrJones' reply:

Where do I find this mysterious thread number?

From the url for this thread and Anglagards post:
... action=msg&f=19&t=469&m=1#55

Forum: f=19
Thread: t=469
Message: m=55 (the =1# is from the page setting)

now you can use these codings for the following:

Notice that the minus sign turns off the title of the forum, thread or message (subtitle)

happy dBCoding

Enjoy

Will someone remind me again why we suspended Rob?

It's a function of (annoyance)x(output)x(threads involved)/(content)

Actually the reason he was suspended was for ignoring a specific directive (and bringing such misbehavior to new heights).

Now when such behavior is rewarded with moderator action I wonder if the post shouldn't be hidden as a matter of policy (ie -- all "OFF TOPIC DO NOT RESPOND" marked posts and the like).

Edited by RAZD, : No reason given.

... you are dividing by zero...

okay, make it

suspension factor = (∑annoyance)x(# posts)x(# threads involved)/(∑content + 1)

:D

For instance, my "rating" would be:

SFRAZD = (some)(8015)(27x50)/(lots) = occasional
