Is there any point to the Does ID follow the scientific method? thread?

Dawn just posts insults and non-sensical word salad.

e.g.
Bluejay asked 4 very simple questions.
Dawn posts a load of rubbish in response.

I suspect it will just go round and around and around...

Dawn Bertot: "I will in this thread prove that A equals B!"
Others: "Ok. Go on then."
Dawn Bertot: "Why is A not equal to B?"
Others: "Aren't YOU meant to be the one showing that A equals B?"
Dawn Bertot: "Why are you all avoiding my question?!"
Others: "Define what A and B is and maybe we could answer the question."
Dawn Bertot: "I have told you already! A = A and B = B!"
Dawn Bertot: "You are a slighted mind!"

 Meldinoor writes:His two posts so far have been almost copied from other users' posts

It is as if he put an existing post into a English-to-Spanish translator and then into a Spanish-to-English translator.

Is Dawn Bertot using a new login?

Re: Proposed New Topics, rant from JH
I also saw this:
 JH writes:Trev, there’s a lot more going on in a cell that we know about.

It seems like the post is a copy and paste from some conversation he saw.

Re: Signature spam like message without any spam
 Meldinoor writes:Perhaps in the interest of avoiding off-topic banter, and getting some much needed moderation in that thread, it could be moved to the Faith and Belief subforum?

I agree with Meldinoor that the thread Deconversion experiences should be moved (and moderated if possible).
The thread has attracted some very high quality posts and if a little moderation can get the thread back on track then I think that more quality posts will be added.

Why is my message Message 41 "bad stuff"?

Is it not on-topic to point out the flaws in someone's argument?

Re: Calling Speakers of English
Maybe try a different tack?

Ask Dronester what he thinks should be done?
(But in the form of "What do you think should be done?" rather than "Do you think that [insert action] should be done?".)

Re: Off-topic

I tend to agree.
There is so rarely any clear cut 'facts' (or maybe too many) in politics that discussions go around and around with no-one any the wiser.

Politics is black and white - with all shades of grey in between - but without any black or white - and with different shades of different colours mixed in with the grey - in a dark room.

Re: Not off-topic
 Omnivorous writes:Like it or not, science is a political issue.

Completely true.
TBH: I find little to fault in your post.
(Pretend that I quoted your whole post and then nodded in agreement.)

But the kind of topics that I (and I think Coyote) are asking to be monitored/limited are the political threads that rarely involve science nor religion.
e.g.
Obama
Wikileaks

I must admit: the level of discussion often displayed in this forum (helped by the light touch of moderation) does make me want all subjects discussable on this forum.
I have learned quite a bit from both of the example threads listed above.
But I fear that a lack of focus would lead to a drop in quality.

I think john6zx has lost it.

I particularly liked "This is America, 1st amendment rights."
I checked my passport...I am definitely not in America.
