i was in a similar situation, but instead of staying around harping on it i left.
OIM also had that option but he chose to stay
you can not blame anyone except OIM for his banning.
the real question is why OIM chose to stay, especially after a temp ban.
the best course of action in a situation like this is to state your opinion, present your evidence, and let history be the judge.

frankly i haven't read very many posts by OIM for the simple reason i am not a geologist. he can say something about geology to me that makes perfect sense but to a geologist is so full of holes it's amazing he ever stated it.

I like to torture them, Leopold, and maybe a few other people will see the truth if I keep repeating it. Also, when they do what they do, people can see how these moderators behave and use their own judgment. Show always works better than tell.

i don't know why but that is really funny.

always? every time?
i always thought that sitting in the background quietly collecting evidence is the best course of action.
being able to think on your own helps a lot too.

The behavior of the moderators is evidence that there is either a grand conspiracy or they want people to believe that there is one.

Another question on my mind is, why are moderators incapable of respectfully disagreeing with anyone? It's always baiting, bashing, and head games. I know that they do it on purpose. Maybe I'm just trying to get them to admit it.

Yes, I have a history. The dominant crowd at my school were sociopaths and suck-ups to sociopaths.

MetaKron:

Like OIM, you're an attention-seeker. Going up against the big bad moderator is obviously giving you a thrill, but I'm just coming down to your level by continuing to respond. So, I'm going to stop now.

So MetaKron, you admit that you're just trying to stir the pot? What's the point of that? If you hate it so much, why not just leave? I'm not telling you to leave, I'm just asking why you don't. I mean, you obviously hate the way the place is run, and your quest to see James change his ways didn't work...so what's the point?

You're not torturing anyone. Nobody gives a shit, really.

No but that's in private.

We can't make huge scenes and cry in public.

You guys are so lucky.

Lack of rank has its privileges.

A meaningless aesthetic affectation, in essence.

I simply wanted the text in my posts to appear slightly farther "below" the "header bar" at the top, and the ` character was a convenient means to this end.

Probably sounds ridiculous, I know.

ok boys... stop arguing... please show your PhD. cert before engaging as a moderator in science forum because this forum is getting more expert with many PhD come here to debate. A moderator with PhD is more qualified and gain more respect than those don't have it... serve it as a rule to nominate a moderator.

James R back of, OIM has made some decent points and arguments but if you take it simply from the examples he give he has a point, theses posts were perfectly valid. He was most certanly not advertising his blog because there was no link or sugetion that it even existed, your counterarguments were the first i have heard of it
