It is a wonder why this topic was ever promoted, and even more astonishing why it has progressed so far without the slightest shred of apparent merit.

I have mostly stayed away from that thread, and most of the time I have not been reading posts there. On the few occasions when I have read a post, it looked like completely insane nonsense (which is why I have mostly avoided it).

I somehow have the impression that most other people have also been avoiding it.

(And, yes, I am know I am not supposed to engage in discussion in this thread).

Re: !!!!! Goats on Fire !!!!!! Mabus is back !!!!! Again !!!!!
Yes, I know I am not supposed to post this here. But it didn't seem worth starting a new thread, and putting it here adds some context.

PZ Myers reports that Mabus showed up at an athiests convention in Montreal.

Re: Barack
I request that the thread with Violations, hatred, intolerance - nwr in Suggestions and Questions be closed or deleted.

Note that I have no intention of responding to that thread.

Whatever happened to Politicus Maximus?

(To be fair, Politicus Maximus never really took off, and people kept posting political threads in the coffee room).

Re: Infinite brickbats and targets tempt the tosser
Limiting the total number of votes available at any one time. For instance, if a member had a store of 10 votes and used one of them, he would only have 9 votes left. The vote store would be replenished on some schedule, for instance, give each member an additional vote every day, up to a maximum of 10.

That's not a bad idea, if it becomes necessary. I don't think it is necessary at this time.

Abuse has been rare ...

Yes, that's my observation.

Remember folk, when you cheer or jeer a post, that does not tell me anything at all about the post. I can read the post for myself to learn all that I want about it. So when you cheer or jeer a post, you are telling me something about you yourself. Cheering or jeering a post is making a public statement about your opinion of the post.

Re: AdminModulous: Message 414
AdminModulous edited a pertinent portion of Message 414 from view. What was edited out can be seen by clicking the peek button of that message.

I'm a bit puzzled that there was moderation in Free For All.

POTM in Essential Links
Somebody needs to fix "Essential Links". It lists POTM for February and earlier.

My suggestion would be to just make it a link to the POTM forum, and skip the individual months. That way, "Essential Links" won't need updating every month.

My first impression was of a confused newbie. I have not found a reason to revise that impression.

Re: Something weird
It looks normal to me. Maybe it depends on the browser. I am using firefox 11.0 on linux (opensuse 12.1).

Re: This site used to be...

The Coffee House and Free for All have taken over, and now about 90-95% of the posts are on other topics, particularly politics.

This is mainly due to a decrease in postings in the other areas, rather than an increase in Coffee House posts.

The creationists have gone AWOL, have perhaps started more of their own sites.

Re: lower than whale snot spammer.
I don't see anything.

Someone has kindly deleted them all.

There were 10 or so posts (I didn't count), but they were gone by the time I tried to look at one.

Way off-topic
If people have finished discussing Aurora Colorado Violence, maybe that thread can be closed an a separate thread opened for debating guns. I shall happily ignore the gun thread.
