Jar, Enough Already.
jar writes in the Why Reuse Design thread, : Message 36

."..............why should anyone even care if there was a designer?"

Why should anyone ask that question in the thread when it's not the thread topic? If you don't care, why are you in the thread? We get enough of you without this.

THREAD Atheist Appreciation of Biblical Wisdom and Inspiration

Admin, PD, with all due respect, imo, you are mothering the above thread to the extent of paranoia, in that it is progressing counter to your personal ideology.

When I hear some people say that all the religions are the same often what they are saying is that no belief has any enfluence over thier lives. In that regard they are "all the same."

Logically all things cannot be the same and remain coherent because they diametrically contradict one another.

But taking certain passages and applying the wisdom in them, I think, is what he is referring to.

Though message 52 does not have quoted verses in it, nevertheless, it addresses the thread topic. Note the phrases, applying the wisdom in them, coherent and influence over their lives, i.e. wisdom, coherentcy of text, and influencing one's life, (directly associated to wisdom and inspiration and aspects thereof)

Could you consider easing off a bit and allowing a bit of leeway in favor of easing the tension, AdminPD?

Uneven Playing Field
Debate in Did the Biblical Exodus ever happen? has become a venture into futility, in that the one against the pack, quarterbacked by Admin constitute an uneven playing field.

This sort of "riding herd" on the scanty creationist constituency here at EvC, Admin, actively debating the opposition PoV in debate on the topic is a new dimension of moderating, so far as I am aware. Is that what we are to expect in the debates where a lot is at stake, ideologically for both sides of the debate here at at EvC (Evolution vs Creationism)?

In Admin's last admonition, I'm even singled out for my spelling of "empirically," because I got one letter wrong in the word.
I've been doing spell check throughout the thread, clicking "ignore" for the numerous spelling mistakes of some of the pack. I'm no more empirically correct in spelling than others in the pack who occasionally miss spell check. Certainly there's not enough spelling errors in this thread to be singled out for a mistake.

Not one iota of my cited evidence has been deemed even a tad bit supportive to the Exodus event when, in fact, my counterparts frequently debated strawment evidence for their own positions.

Of course, I fully understand what's at stake in this thread for the pack. All it would take to topple their secularist mindset is one itty bitty bonafide Biblical miracle.

Couldn't agree more. What jar said was on topic, directly responsive to something someone else said, and in a Coffee House thread fer Christ's sake.

I agree, I often make short comments or answers...admin should look at the context of msg and use common sense, I have seen much worse and probably have done worse...I am trying to learn what is expected of me in order to participate in a meaningful way...although I am sure I will slip...especially if I let emotions get involved.

I would also like to echo all of the above sentiments. Brevity is a desired virtue in a world of fluff and filler.

I say kudos to Adminnemooseus (if I remember correctly). It was about time for Admin action. You don't realize the amount of this sort of nonsense you get from Jar when you're on the receiving end of it, being dogged 24/7 by him no matter what topic you're engaged in.

Jar almost always, if not always, makes sure to get in the last word in debates with me, whether or not he has anything worth saying.

Third Time Not Charming.
Message 119

This is the third time Jar has repeated the same ole one liners, which I have addressed in previous messages.

I did address them. I'll have to look up the messages. In the mean time, I suggest admins look over the latter debate messages relative to this and make a determination.

Message Response Tab Problem
Quite often it is either impossible or difficult to implement the message response tab below messages so as to indicate that the member has acknowledged the message.

I need implementation of that feature quite often, being tagged along incessantly by Jar's numerous repetitive or non-substantive responses.

Can you describe what happens when you click on the link?

Often, nothing. Sometimes it works and others it doesn't. When it doesn't work sometimes when I keep clicking it eventually takes. The last time I tried, after clicking numerous times nothing happened.

Could the problem be in my mouse? I have had some issues with my mouse, but for the most part it works ok on other things.

Re: Message Response Tab Problem
Thanks, Admin. That makes sense. However we went to Firefox once but there was some feature about it that caused us to go back to AVG.

Likely the problem lies in what you explained. I'll try some things and see how it goes.

Firefox is a web browser, AVG is anti-virus software. You dont use one in place of the other.

Thanks, Theodoric. Right. Our browser is Internet Explorer. Though there are some undesirable aspects of it, after trying Firefox, we decided to stick with Internet Explorer.

I've tried waiting a bit before clicking or reclicking on the acknowledge button after what Admin posted. That has been working lately. It appears to indicate that the problem is in my slower browser capability.

Re: Message Response Tab Problem
Admin writes:


How long would you say it normally takes after you click a link for your browser to display a webpage? However long that is, that's how long you have to wait, on average, for the acknowledgement text to update.

The reason for this is that the acknowledgement text is a link that sends a request to this website just like any other link. The only difference is that in this case only the text is being updated, instead of the entire webpage. Updating just part of a webpage takes advantage of a set of technologies collectively known as Ajax.

For one thing, after booting up or after my computer has been in sleep mode, it displays webpages slower than after it's been up and running for a spell. (Sort of like the ole man before morning tea or coffee.)
Perhaps at times when the problem arose, it was shortly after the PC was aroused.

I am reluctant to dump cookies, for one thing, due to loosing passwords, etc, though my son takes care of it when he's in town on a visit. That may be a factor.

Thanks for your help. I think I can do fine with it, now that I understand the problem.

Re: Larni Signature Juxtaposing Unidentified Quotes of Members
In Message 109 I complained to Larni for juxtaposing, in his signature for all to read, what I wrote with a less intelligible quote of another member without identifying the writer of either.

Larni, ignoring the protocol of EvC to identify sources of quotes, refuses to comply with my request until being required to do so by a moderator.

Admin writes:

But signatures represent an opportunity for members to express their individuality, so normally signatures are given a lot of leeway.

What Larni is doing is personally attacking me on every message he submits. THAT'S A VIOLATION OF FORUM GUIDELINES

We could cherry pick anyone's profile and find a few sour ones to parade before the www. Is that what signatures have become? Places to demean one another?? That's sick!

Admin, after, you admitted that my form was not included in that of Dawn et al's why should Larni attach mine with his? Why should his post sigs be attacking anyone? Where are moderators who are suppose to be advocating for the creationist constituency??

I object to the fact that it appears that it's all from one writer. That's quoting multiple sources of data, attributing them to one person.

Why should the place it's juxtaposed matter? The signature compounds the attack, being it's in every post of his. It's all public for all to see whether it's in the message or in the signature. Anyone with half a brain & knowledge of the meaning of my words can figure mine out. The other is nothing but meaningless gibberish.

My signature is is all my own words so I don't need to identify the source.
