    I can't find it... But I've gotta' wipe my hard drive as it is so infected with junk it makes looking for stuff a pain.

    This thread should be closed now, since I have resigned my membership.

    http://sciforums.com/threads/oil-de...mics-the-etp-model.145678/page-6#post-3294329

    Thanks again everybody.

    Wow. My official resignation post has been removed. I have a right to resign if I want to.*

    So, I will do it again here.

    I hereby resign my membership to this useless so called science forum.

    Thanks for the memories.

    *I am trying very hard to resign, but I may end up getting over 1000 posts in the effort. Then I will resign as a Valued Senior Member!

    You are more than welcome to resign. However, posting and advertising your own personal blog (not to mention the thinly veiled threat that said post entailed) are not permitted.

    Hm... interesting - I was under the impression members could see their own infractions - I'll follow up on that with you once I have a solid answer!

    I am not sure what you just removed when you combined my last 2 posts.

    But I did not threaten anyone that I can remember. I may have mentioned that I am planning to write a blog post about this site. That is not a threat, at all.

    I think you are a little over sensitive.

    Please lock this thread (once you are finnished with Beer w/Straw's important question, of course), since it serves no further purpose. Thank you once again for your fine moderation efforts. Keep up the good work.

    I would tell you, but you wouldn't believe me anyway

    Indeed? Then why did you state it as though it were?

    Nah, just looking out for the best interests of those here to hold rational discussion

    Hi Kittamaru.

    Since this thread is still open, here is something you might be interested in:

    Hi again, BW.

    I did the best I could under some extremely horrendous conditions, but I was unable to successfully defend the Etp model from the trolls of sciforums.com. In fact, they even locked my "Apocalypse Soon?" thread after 2.5 years of careful babysitting. The thread ended with 88 pages, 1,748 comments, and 242,525 views! This was a very sudden thread lock that came with no warning. They are posting new threads as fast as they can, and my now dead thread will soon be pushed off the front page. Out of site, out of mind. Here is a link to the final page:

    http://sciforums.com/threads/apocalypse ... st-3294089

    But a few weeks ago, I had created a separate thread in the physics section just to talk about the Etp model with some hopefully more honest and knowledgeable folks. This did not go well. The stonewalling and trolling just continued in the physics section, and even got worse. Much worse. After 7 pages, 122 comments, and 1641 views, Sciforums.com just moved the Etp model thread off of the physics section. It is now sitting in: "On the Fringe: Alternative Theories"! This is obviously grotesque and unacceptable. I have resigned my membership from sciforums.com over this incident. I am glad to be away from that madhouse.

    http://sciforums.com/threads/oil-deplet ... el.145678/

    Please check it out.

    I think it might be somewhat entertaining if you were to start a new thread for the Etp model at the top of the sciforums physics section. But I am not actually recommending that you do this. The entire site is a fraud. It is clearly not a real science forum.

    I still need to get a copy of the Etp model to show to people I care about. Is the new version available yet?

    Thanks again, BW.

    Ah my, the impudence, the arrogance, the sheer foalishness of it all...

    You truly feel you are some sort of victim here; be that out of some sort of observational bias on your part, or perhaps an inability to comprehend what is being said to you, I do not know...

    What I do know is, you are unable to help yourself when it comes to posting here... how many times have you resigned today? And now you go and foist your temper tantrum upon another forum...

    Only one word comes to mind to describe your actions today Futilitist... "pathetic". You can't win a debate with facts, and when you get called out on it, you throw a tantrum. Then, when you are reprimanded for said tantrum, you pull the "nobody likes me so I'm leaving" card... and don't leave.

    It is worth noting that this sob story has played out before...

    Apparently, learning from your experiences is not a strength of his...

    Your inability to comprehend it does not change the fact that what I wrote is a grammatically correct sentence.

    Hey, wait a minute!

    You are iNow, aren't you? Wow, good one!

    You really had me going there. I never once suspected it was you all along.

    I do not know who this iNow character is - however, reading his posts and general style of debate, he seems like someone I would very much like to converse with... so to that end, I will take what you have said as a compliment.

    I still don't know what I got a warning for. As far as I know, all my warning on this forum involved Futilitist.

    I'm fully aware I can be mean. I could have been banned or suspended a long time ago for something I said to you. I can only assume my current infraction, which I was given no formal indication of, is because I was getting personal. I believe you have a definite lack of introspection and this affects your reasoning. You didn't respond to the basic questioning Does GDP dictate oil production or does oil production dictate GDP? I believe it is a symptom of some mental impairment that made you not address it. As to me, it should be so obvious that only those who are extraordinarily dumb would not touch upon it. You seem to have enough skills to get things done. Why don't you take a time out. Reflect on yourself and just WTF you're actually proposing. And I scare no one. I usually make a hissy fit abreaction and make a fool of myself. So don't factor me in any decision to leave the forum.

    Heck be my friend on facebook for the fuck of it https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009412575281 I just made the account.

    I joined a public group called "The Science Forum" and it turned out to be something entirely different from what I expected.

    I'm also a member of a private group that posts a lot of funny and often vulgar memes.

    I believe irrelevant tabs are automatically omitted by the software. So you don't have any infractions.

    Because James didn't send you a message, the forum software did. Apparently the forum software was written with the idea in mind that the moderator who made the decision isn't a relevant piece of information to share in the message. In the forum I moderate, I believe moderator messages are signed "The ____ Staff".
    Well that isn't true. The main result of that is that it helps people troll each other. This forum is rare in publicising bans.
