Re: Member Ratings Explained
Since you are taking requests...

When I click on my own rating, I'd like to have it so that the last ten posts of anyone who has jeered me automatically get a jeer. In fact, I don't want to have to even do the click, and you needn't provide the feature for the benefit of anyone but me.

On second thought, I think I can find [member name deleted]'s posts without any such aid. Don't bother writing any code.

Now that my motives are completely suspect, I wanted to ask you if you could use any programming help. I program primarily in c/c++/, java, and javascript, and have only minimal experience with php.

Re: Member Ratings. what about comment rating?
I am sure that's true. I was just kinda thinking that it would be nice to look at a members rating and have an idea of whether it would be worthwhile to enter into a debate with them or not; rather than whether they are creationist or evolutionist.

In theory there can be a huge discrepancy for creationists between their ratings and their ability to engage in an evidence based debate because people do tend to cheer posts that support their own position. For example, I saw a recent poster receive a jeer merely for pointing out that following three of the four links provided by a creationist produced 404 messages.

But in fact, I don't believe there are very many anomalies in creationist ratings. For the most part, they do reflect, for creationists, the relative strength and character of their arguments compared to other creationists.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. The proper place to-day, the only place which Massachusetts has provided for her freer and less desponding spirits, is in her prisons, to be put out and locked out of the State by her own act, as they have already put themselves out by their principles. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

Re: An American Chestnut
I actually already discovered the answer, but I found it surprising.

Well, what is the answer?

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

Re: An American Chestnut
Omnivorous had it right, and Theodoric, too, at a less detailed level. Many chestnut trees live 10 to 20 years, plenty of time to drop chestnuts to form new seedlings. In this time they grow beneath the forest canopy to a skinny height of at most 20 feet or so. But chestnut blight eventually gets them all. They go quickly when they go.

Wikipedia lists some instances of stands of large, unblighted and some blighted American Chestnut trees that are fairly large.
