The reason remains that I'm not allowed in science, that I kick too much evo butt in them. Admin always sees to it that any effective threat to his own must be run off, no matter what it takes.

Well Buz, this is a perfect way to demonstrate that you really do understand what evidence is; can you give us a link to the thread where you kicked butt so we disinterested lurkers can bask in your glory too?

Interesting example. But, yes I've been pretty tough on some non Creationists. Maybe I should have let go of Tangle a bit more quickly.

Don't start patronising anyone. I'm quite happy to ignore you when you're being a dick.

Given what Dr A said, your comment was unremarkable. The suspension seems a bit random to me. No matter, treat it as a badge of honour, by-and-large moderation here is pretty low key and generally fair.

Re: ThinAirDesigns Suspension and Admin personal insult
Yikes. A tad innapropriate from an independent, neutral referee.

(This would be more understandable if it was even true....)

Re: Talking Honest - Not Allowed?

Can we not speak honestly here anymore?

The evidence is that you can and you did. Your words have not been censored or deleted.

But you could have said the same thing in a less aggressive and offensive way and it would have had more chance of persuading someone. Instead you're stuck defending bad use of language.

Mohamed was not a flower-power, peace and love Jesus character, he was a warrior and by some accounts did some apalling things. You could have told us what they were rather than just call him names.

But if you want to call him names, you can - it's just that you'll be called on it and no-one will be any the wiser.

Well here's a whine.

I've got DavidJay on my imaginary 'do not reply' list because he's a deluded, self-aggrandising, proselytising arsehole that doesn't listen to argument or respond to questions. He's probably also mentally ill. He's successfully trolling this forum with total garbage in every post - but we continue to respond.

Can I suggest that a little self-moderation is in order? Why respond to his garbage? Wouldn't we be better ignoring all the bollox and only responding when he says something that has actual content? Otherwise I wake up to another dozen posts full of insane crap that I have to see before I ignore it.

The child rearing code of 'ignore bad behaviour, reward good' seems to be in order.

I'm arguing for self-moderation, not more mod intervention - I appreciate what you guys are doing but we're just feeding his habit

PorknCheese
Can I suggest that Porkncheese's new proposed thread - Exposing the theory of evolution Part 2 - is not promoted until he has responded properly to the criticisms in his first thread - Exposing the theory of evolution Part 1?

It's looking more like a blog than a discussion.
