It appears that suddenly EvC has become a hotbed platform for Covid conspiracy nutjobs to spew dangerous fraudulent bullshit about science and public health. If this is what EvC is morphing into then there is nothing of value here. I participate here to read and learn and discuss actual science, not bullshit propaganda from nutjobs who are intent on destroying civilization.

More news to me. Was wondering what happened to Faith. Not surprised. The latest spreaders of lies and disinformation seem to be even worse than some of what she was. There needs to be consistency and public health threats need to be dealt with decisively.
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I seem to recall that Faith was banned for this. We need some consistency.
I was against the banning of Faith, although I never communicated such to anyone.
Faith was posting nonsense, but at least her messages were concise, coherent, and easily refuted. Faith's messages were good starting points to put out quality counter-information, that otherwise wouldn't appear in this forum.
Porkncheese, on the other hand, is putting out vast piles of Gish gallop bullshit. I am inclined to be in favor of permanently banning Porkncheese.
Crashfrog complained about the ratings some years ago, and as a joke I wrote some code that displayed my Percy rating as 11 on pages displayed under Crashfrog's account, but he never noticed and I removed the code years ago.
