Well, many (not all) Creation scientists either have dubious/false credentials, make uninformed claims in areas far outside that of their field if they do have legitimate credentials, or simply do poor science.
All of these claims are demonstrable, BTW.

Does anyone else find it amusimg and ironic (rather deliciously ironic!) that Syamsu, in this thread, of all threads where people are complaining that he is tolerated despite breaking many forum rules, continues to break forum rules?
Priceless.

Protection of creationists, particularly where their behaviour verges on trolling, provides no benefit to the board and only generates frustration for those who make the effort of providing thoughtful messages which are ignored.
As far as I could tell, Kendemyer was allowed to be mostly unresponsive and belligerant, although AdminAsgara did try to get him to follow forum rules a couple of times.
I became very frustrated and stopped responding to him altogether because of his non-responsiveness.
Why he wasn't hounded by the moderators to follow the forum guidelines when he so clearly was ignoring them was rather baffling to me.
I am not unsympathetic to the idea that we may drive away less seasoned debaters if we pile on every single one. However, I am also not very interested in promoting the "warm body syndrome" in which we give special dispensation to posters (almost always creationists)who repeatedly violate the rules just because if we try to improve their behavior, they might go away.
It makes those of us who do follow the rules pretty pissed off, and rightly so.
I'd rather have a bit of a dry spell in which we speak among ourselves for a little while rather than letting the debate decline in quality.
