There is an existing topic on mimicry
Chiroptera gave a plug to this topic at the Considerations of topic promotions from the Proposed New Topics forum.

There is an existing topic on this, Mimicry and neodarwinism. It is at message 187 and was active up to a couple of months ago.

I am not rejecting this new "Proposed New Topic" (PNT), but all may wish to consider the above cited. If that topic doesn't do the job, then this one can be promoted.

Lampropeltis can comment in this topic. Others can comment in the "Considerations..." topic.

On hold for now.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

OK - About to promote topic
From the General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures 11.0 topic (it should have been in the Considerations of topic promotions from the "Proposed New Topics" forum topic).

I know we have a thread on mimicry, but it has MartinV all over it.

Yea, I noticed that. Sounds like a good reason to close the older topic and promote this one.

Stand by.

Adminnemooseus opinion - Dr Adequate replies need improvement
Upon review, I would suggest that Dr Adequate tone down the sarcasm and improve the level of substance in his replies.

Any replies to this message should go to the "General discussion..." topic, link below. You may get a 24 hour suspension if you reply in this topic rather than that topic.

Also, to Martin: Other admins may think otherwise, but my opinion is that your complaint should also have gone to the "General discussion..." topic, complete with a link back to the message(s) in question (important!). That topic is for discussion of admin actions, but (IMO) it is also for discussion of admin inactions and to point possible problems out to the admins. Besides, there the complaint won't get buried and not noticed.
