Re: Don't be naive
The truth is, Dr. A gets away with a lot more because he's funnier and more entertaining.

To whom? All he does is raise my blood pressure and give me more reason's to hate evolutionists.

EDIT: by evolutionists, I mean anti-creationists, not merely people who believe in evolution. I don't find him funny in the least.

Re: Don't be naive
You are one of the few here who have actually threatened violence to other posters.

Where have I made a specific threat to a specific person? I don't believe I have. I made general statements about what most evolutionist's posts make me feel like, and part of those feelings would get me banned if expressed and have the cops knocking on my front door. I may have made more generalized statements about my feelings of disgust about many of you. If you have an instance where I made a specific threat about a specific act of violence against a particular member, go ahead and post it. I don't believe you have such a statement from me.

Re: Fyoungs posts of hate
Be embarrassed for me all you want; I am not embarrassed in the least in front of the worst scumbags on earth like you theodoric. I take it as badge of honor that a scumbag like you would be embarrassed for me. Now, if I acted that way outside of the evolution debate under most normal circumstances, yes, I would be embarrassed and ashamed, but not here. I know it is the attitudes of you guys here on this forum that drives the rage inside of me. You people (anticreationists) are the most hateful, rage drenched people on the face of the planet. You may ask "What rage?". Just read how you interact with creationists on this forum on a daily basis. That is the epitome of rage. It may not contain cusswords or statements of violence, but it is obviously rage. Just ask any creationist on this board who has had to deal with you people. I can guarantee they feel rage from you guys.

Re: Fyoungs posts of hate
I have a better idea. Why don't you get the fuck out of here, and quit your self righteous hypocritical bullshit act.

Re: He has converted me.
So you think good behavior is what makes a person a Christian? No wonder, you are so confused. Mormons, hindus, jews, you name it, atheists, can be described as having good behavior. Does that make them Christians? Hardly. Get a clue before you try responding to me again.

Re: Fyoungs posts of hate
Sorry to disappoint your fantasies DA. There is no projection going on here. I know how desperately you wish it were so. You assume it is projection because people always are blind to the own foibles until they are pointed out and accepted by them. You cannot see your own behavior because your every move is justified in your own self righteous mind. When you do that your whole life, you become blind to your own rotten behavior.

Re: Fyoungs posts of hate
I have already acknowledged my own rage. That is why I am able to clearly see that same rage in many of your self righteous, pompous asses.

Re: Fyoungs posts of hate
So now you are comparing me to fanatic muslims who want to blow up infidels? This is why I despise you so fiercely. That is an extremely hateful insult that you know good and dam well has no comparison at all. I am talking about what kind of feelings I have when dealing with assholes on a debate board. Muslims are not angry. They CALMLY feel religious obligation to blow up infidels. No comparison whatsoever.

Cavediver writes:

Why do we put up with this idiot? Moose has just closed a perfectly respectable, topical, and interesting thread (and I don't blame Moose) because it has been trolled by FEY, and others simply can't help feeding the troll. We're not remedial school, we're not here to handhold some angsty teenager through pubescence, and I don't see why discussion and debate should be curtailed because of one immature poster.

And this has nothing at all to do with that twit jeering everyone in sight, resulting in me losing my perfect 10 score. Not at all. Doesn't bother me one bit. Nope. Did I mention it was 10 before he starting being a twat?

First of all, I don't normally give "Cheers" to messages from the admin mode ID, but I felt Cavediver made a good moderation issue point - "...and others simply can't help feeding the troll.". It's pretty hard for an individual to cause major topic problems without the support of others, be it "feeding the troll" or just blindly "chasing the off-topic" (these may be one and the same). Self moderation by members would be VERY helpful.

Foreveryoung has the burden of being of the minority perspective side. If that wasn't tough enough, he also has publicly admitted to having very significant psychological problems. Thus, I am bending over backwards to try to make this place a beneficial experience for him (aka - not banning him permanently).

Dr Adequate, in response to Cavediver, in message 57, writes:

Because he has a spark of intelligence and morality in him. Deep down inside him, I believe, there is a good and sane person fighting to get out.

I fully agree (OSLT).

Huntard, in response to Cavediver, in message 59, writes:

Quite. You know what would've been a perfectly viable solution? Asking him to stop posting to that thread. Problem would've resolved itself within 10 messages after the request, and we could've had a reasonable discussion about the glory of a true European Union / World Government.

I think....

An even more immediate solution would have been for others not to post responses (which, since FEY was off-topic, were also off-topic). Sometimes I just want to find the problem message and the chain of responses to that message, and suspend everyone involved.

Problem would've resolved itself within 10 messages after the request,...

I wouldn't bet on it, even if FEY did stop posting. Others could well carry on without his input.

A similar problem is the various other members also chasing kofh2u's "doesn't belong in the topic material".

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION OF THIS MATTER MUST GO TO THE General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') TOPIC.

Has anyone given a moments thought to what might be driving my anger other than personal issues? Having a minority opinion can be infuriating but if I am responded to with respect and not treated like an idiot, I do ok being on the minority side. Another handicap I have in debating with most folks on here is that everyone seems to have immersed themselves in the "progressive" "socialist" talking points. It doesn't matter whether you listen to MSNBC or watch PBS or read most books either on a college campus or in a bookstore like Barnes and Noble, they ALL share the same talking points on just about any issue that has been argued and discussed thoroughly. The folks at EVC have memorized all those liberal talking points and can pull out a link at a moments whim to butress any point they are making that is in contradiction to the conservatives points of view (regressive, reactionary...according to you guys). This is extremely frustrating for an inarticulate guy like me who knows instinctually what he believes but cannot put it succinctly into words. It is especially frustating because there is scarce support material on the web or in books for my point of view. The only ones that I can find are usually dismissed as right wing and illegitimate, for instance, American Thinker. With no ammunition to fire, you certainly cannot win a war.
