how about you do the EvC thing and cite three or four examples of Buzsaw stupidity in the Science Fora.

do you think that three or four cited by Paulk are enough for evaluation?

Shall we add this to the collection of stupid posts you have made?
You ask for 3 or 4 examples and then complain that 3 or 4 examples are not enough.
That is stupid.

I think you and many others are missing Buzsaw's subtle and nigh compelling argument. Yes, the compost cited above is inane on its face. But it was posted in "Free for all" and does not count as a response to what Buzsaw demanded; namely examples of stupidity in the Science Fora.

When I read Buzsaw's challenge, several particularly egregious postings came to mind, but after brief thought I had to acknowledge that one of my examples was of a post in "Coffee House" and clearly outside of the science forums. Two others were in a science related thread in "Great Debate" and technically speaking were not in a science forum at all.

Which is of course the point.

Give the man his proper. Buzsaw does not restrain or constrain his contributions posted to the science forums. I believe that 'Saw gives every thread he participates in his absolute, tippy-top best. He is no respecter of subject matter. Yet the cutting edged one is specially banned from the science forums. Small wonder that the singling out of his posts in the 'Science Fora' seems so unfair to him.

I'd write my Congressman, but he doesn't actually seem to represent me, so with this post, I'm addressing my complaint to the lead singer of Echo and the Bunnymen.

Yeah, I know the real reason Buzsaw is banned from the science forums. Just saying...

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison
