Longtime members should know better.

Thread Heating Up
The Epistemologies thread is becoming heated; I suggest it be put on close watch. As an example:

Nobody is saying it does you idiot.

Guideline #10:
Always treat other members with respect. Argue the position, not the person.

Insanity Alert
I think we need a little Administrator intervention over in the Induction and Science thread to help bring back some of the sanity. Things are simply flying way too far off topic.

Crashing the Thread
I think Crashfrog's overuse of personal attacks is really getting in the way of discussion. In the most recent post:

quote:
Crashfrog in Message 181 in How Does Republican Platform Help Middle Class?:

Um, no, stupid,...
...
... you incredible gob-shite.


Also some others not too long ago:

quote:
Crashfrog in Message 9 in Monetary Tsunami In America!!:

... you're someone with a congenital mental disorder


quote:
Crashfrog in Message 32 in Monetary Tsunami In America!!:

So why aren't you out buying that, stupid?


Allowing this to continue unchecked doesn't seem to be in the spirit of good debate.

Jon

Re: OliverChant is Just a Troll
He's an uneducated child (says he's 14) who certainly doesn't understand anything that he's talking about or the expected conduct here. But I don't think he's being intentionally disruptive, he just doesn't know any better.

Indeed; he should definitely be given a chance. But anyone who cannot even be bothered to go and edit their darn message after being told how is certainly following the way of the troll.

Re: Error message I'm getting
Not sure if this is relevant, but I had been getting this error occasionally a while back when I tried to log in or submit a post. It didn't happen regularly, and waiting a minute or two and trying the action again usually solved the problem.

I use FF 3.6.13 on XP.

I think AdminPhat is giving us a fine display of the behavior of the CCoI come to power.

Re: AdminPhat: Clarifications, please
Your complaint against him is the same as your usual complaint. When you find someone saying stuff you don't agree with, you get angry. And when you see that they are using various debate strategies that you can't contend with, you get angry.

And when you get angry, you lash out.

Filthy Spammer
arigatou is just a good-for-nothing signature spammer.

I'd rather step in a pile of horseshit than have to scrape him of my shoe.

Re: Filthy Spammer
Maybe because it wasn't a specific reply to anyone but just a general reply? Just a guess.

I thought it showed up on mine as being new though...

Phat Off-topic in Did Jesus Exist?
Could we, please, get some off-topic warnings in my thread for Phat's post and the replies to it? They have nothing to do with the book being discussed.

Did Jesus Exist? by Bart Ehrman

Thanks,
Jon
