On a well structured, properly organised, ethically run forum one might expect that moderators would make a visible, continued, committed effort to engaging constructively with one of the forums major posters. Regardless of some degree of aberration in said posters most recent posts his prior commitment to the stated goals of the forum, the quality of his posts, his consistent scientific stance, his good humour, would surely merit a degree of respect and tolerance. This appears to be absent. Logically, this forces me to the unwelcome conclusion that this is not a well structured, properly organised, ethically run forum. Pity, really.
