We could get rid of moderation, if we got rid of posters
I hate all moderation of posts.

But, I hate what results after non-moderation in topics worse.
Because the people... they are stupid and require herding.

As for arach, I didn't think the suspension was for non-caps.
I thought the Moose got unlucky, dug a bit of a hole for himself and that was his only way out.

Moderation is necessarily a subjective business, and parts are going to seem lopsided. Sometimes specific cases need to be made, and sometimes ongoing codes of conduct also need to be maintained. Maybe Moose was having a day, maybe he just hadn't moderated in a bit and was feeling the itch.
He saw something that is generally frowned upon and made a moderator warning.
That warning got ignored.
Quick little suspension for the poster.

Maybe the whole thing never needed to be started in the first place. But it was, and so it went.

No one's perfect, and yet this forum is still the best I've seen in terms of providing a well moderated area for discussion.

I give a thumbs down to both Moose and arach in their handling of this issue.
But, like a thumbs-down, I don't think it should really matter at all, to any one.

I don't recommend any changes in posting or moderation as a result from this issue. Just a small check in the back of the mind to both arach and Moose, which I believe is already there after all this after-talk.

And so goes another post of mine, that starts with a point in mind, and ends in a sense that it never really needed to be said anyway.


Smoke'em if you got'em.

I'm tired of her arrogant insults of the intelligence of everyone who disagrees with her and her utter lack of self-awareness.

Have you ever seen that "motivational" picture of a busted ship sunk in the sea smashed on some rocks?
It says something like "Some lives are spent being nothing more than a warning for others."

I think Faith has a very important role to play.

Just sayin'... I hope Porkncheese's topic gets promoted.
Has teaching ToE over religion produced a better society???

I also hoped mike the wiz's last topic got promoted, but that didn't happen.
If Abiogenesis Is False Then It Follows Evolution Is

Mostly because they are topics I like to talk about.
I understand that sometimes their... professionalism... can be questionable. But, that doesn't stop me from wanting to talk about the topics they bring up.
Are they really so bad as to stop public discussion with them, though?

Besides, it beats talking to Faith all the time...

Moar topics! Moar posts!! Moar!!!


Edited by Stile, : It's "their," not "they're." Damnit, get it right.

Porkncheese is just regurgitating (nasty) religious propaganda. Mike’s post amounted to an obvious logic error - and he runs away quickly anyway.

...but I'm only smart enough to reply to low-hanging fruit...
