Re: On Rob's extended suspension

I know it's more fun when there are high-participation level creationists like Rob around, so if you want him here more often then lend him a helping hand.


I personally don't feel it's fun at all. I've engaged with rob before and actually finally got him to admit that he was way over his head. But it was not fun for me at all. I am one of those that would feel extremely embarrassed for other people stupidity. They can believe whatever they want. But it's when they honest-to-goodness believe obviously flawed logic as genuine logic, I just want to bury my head in the sand because I feel embarrassment for them.

The raw energy thread was an example that after reading a few of rob's posts I had to click on the X button and tried to recover from extreme embarrassment. It's not even a difference of opinion. It's just a complete lack of knowledge in the said field. If I ever come off as ignorant and cocky in my ignorance, I'd rather someone bash me in the head to get it over with.

Anyway, I think the point of this post is to tell you that I am one that does not actually enjoy talking to someone like rob.

Re: brenna's suspension
If you've ever gotten in a fight on school ground, you should have known that it doesn't matter who started it. You fought back and that's what counts.

that's nice.
florida law actually does protect self defense, though. just so you know.


The self defense thing simply mean you got a slap on the wrist (which was pretty much what you got) rather than some spankings.

Re: Permanent Suspension = Ban
IP ban involves a lot more people than just the person in question.

Re: Permanent Suspension = Ban

Perhaps. But unless you ban the IP, the person can just endlessly change names, i.e Vashgun, HEWG, Ihategod, etc.


So?

IP banning not only bans the person from commenting on EvC but also everyone else that happens to be using a computer from the same institution. By IP banning, we effectively block out god knows how many potential future members.

Point is, they banned my IP address, because I wanted to see if I could get back in using another name. Very effective.

Trust me, with a few clicks, I can very easily get around this obstacle.
