Re: why the fuck should arach be suspended for not using fucking capitals????
Mainly, because it's easier to distinguish between sentences when people do use capitals.

Yeah, 'cos those Germans are all so incapacitated by their written language...

Re: why the fuck should arach be suspended for not using fucking capitals????
I didn't know that the Germans had stopped capitalizing at the beginnings of sentences. When was that?

They haven't. But as you're obviously ignorant of the German written language, let me inform you. They capitalise every noun, proper or not. This means that capital letters are so widespread through their sentences that they play next to no role as markers of the beginning of sentences.

Re: why the fuck should arach be suspended for not using fucking capitals????
So, from all this, you seem to have come to the conclusion that capitalizing at the beginnings of sentences in English doesn't help readers of English to distinguish between sentences.

No, not at all - why should it be no help?

Re: Coyote Barred From Coffee House?
Unbelievable. Can we have this reversed immediately, and then perhaps we can just pretend that EvC never actually performed this disgraceful act.

Any chance we can end the petty vindictive moderation...?
It would do wonders for the professional appearance of the board.

Jar and Coyote restricted out of the "Geology and the Great Flood" forum

quote:
Jar, 4 weeks suspension

I mean, how pathetic can this get?

Re: King Log And King Stork
I don't know about "petty" and "vindictive" --- that suggests that there's something personal in it.

Hmmm, Jar's mere reply of "too funny" to a rather extreme case of moderation earns a *4-week suspension*, and it's not personal??? I guess insanity could be another explanation.

Re: Unstoppable Jar, Unmovable Moose
Hi, cavediver. I lurk now

And we're the poorer for it. Would be great to see more of your posts around. I think it's the lack of calm considered posts by the old guard that's making me all cranky and bad-tempered.

Very true words you write about Jar and Moose. And now we've got Jar back again... again I think he should celebrate by bringing back his old orang avatar... eh, Jar?

Re: Hooah banned
And then to give Hooah a week-long ban for a post that is actually correct is bullshit.

Yep - unbelievable. I was pissed off when I saw it was a ban, before I even noticed it was for an effin week!!!! I might ask what the hell is going on, but looking at the source of the ban, I guess it's just business as usual

Re: Classy - Moose has lost it
Moose has lost it and is bringing the board into disrepute. His own unprovoked and outrageous insult directed at hooah is the only action worthy of a ban. As it happens, I have been waiting for that thread to be approved as it is interesting and relevant to my own experience.

Re: Hooah
Not sure how long I've been gone, but I know I'm truly home when I return to find that Hooah, yet again, has been banned by Moose, yet again for a ridiculous period of time for a ridiculous reason

Re: Hooah
Bunch of new stuff in physics that could seriously use your input on. Evidently Susskind came out recently with new stuff about Black holes that I for one would love to at least make an attempt at knowing (with your help).

Cool - get a thread going and I'll jump in.

Re: Hooah
Though I don't agree with a lot, you have taught me a lot about science, relative to how and why evolutionists believe what they believe.

You have helped me get things right, pertaining to mainline science, so as not to get it wrong in the debates. That's not saying I don't mess up on occasions.

Hey Buz, you old goat - thanks, that means a lot.

As for Hooah...

The Hooah issue is that he plays it close to the edge, obviously winds Moose up no-end, and this results in Moose overreacting to the wrong things. This ends up gaining Hooah far more support from the crowd than he would otherwise.

Edited by cavediver, : No reason given.

Re: Hooah
It was AdminPD who suspended him, wasn't it?

Don't think so; PD issued the first instruction, but...

quote:
Hooah212002 suspended for 4 weeks by Adminnemooseus on July 26th.

quote:
4 weeks suspension for being a total jackass in this topic. - Adminnemooseus

Unless I've missed something, hooah should not have been suspended at all, let alone for a month.

Quite
