Best Posts In General
I might also add that if anyone finds a really good post from older threads and you are reading it for the first time (or rereading it, as I often do) go ahead and submit it here as well. Just remember to keep things neat and tidy and use the suggested format.

Re: NoNukes at "The Methods of Historical Science..." topic
I would agree that this is POTM material except I would have left off the last line:
Like every thread Faith offers, this one is a farce that tells us much more about her than it does the purported topic. Keep them coming.
Otherwise, the post makes a valid argument.

Taq Defends Climate Change Stats against marc9000
Author: Taq
Forum: Coffee House
Thread: Climate Change Denier comes in from the cold: SCIENCE!!!
Message #: Message 621, Message 622

Taq patiently explains why 7 billion people exhaling is not a significant contribution towards climate change and why Marc 9000 needs to stop being afraid of the science behind it as if it is attacking his liberty.

A great example of arguing the position and not attacking the person.

“As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness.”-RC Sproul, Essential Truths of the Christian Faith

Taq Picks Up Where He Left Off In 2020
This topic has been idle for a couple of years. I saw a great post today and thought about our old POTM. Lo and behold it was again Taq who also won the last nomination posted here. I will say Taq that you exhibit great tact and diplomacy in your posts. Very well done. (and i just so happen to agree with his conclusions! )

DWise1 is indeed a wise one
Author: dwise1
Forum: Coffee House
Thread: Who's the bigger offender: Conservatives or Liberals?
Message #: Message 330

Dwise1 is one of my favorite critics. He never insults me nor questions my reading ability nor does he criticize me in any way to boost his own ego. Rather, he succinctly and professionally diagnoses my rant/post and goes into great descriptive detail about why I may want to rethink my positions. My blood sugar and I both thank him for a job well done.

Excellent post on a rather contentious topic around these parts! I might add that he makes many such high-quality and descriptive posts elsewhere in this Forum.
