    I am fairly new here and I don't want to make waves, but I have come to believe that this is not a real science forum. It is more like a hall of mirrors. I think this site is a right wing science disinformation site, posing as a science forum. So are it's sister sites, thescienceforum.c o m and thescienceforum.o r g. All these sites share basically the same mod staff. The mod staff show highly fascistic tendencies and don't have any real science expertise. Questions about funding and site ownership are never answered directly.

    This thread is to discuss this issue and abuse me for mentioning what is an obvious pattern.

    Maybe.

    Doubtful.

    Define "real".

    Did you get lost?

    Have you visited our conspiracy section? You will fit right in there...

    Let the abuse commence.

    No. Definitely. I am not a sock puppet of a banned member. You are being paranoid. I came to this site on the recommendation of a current member, after I was banned from your two sister sites. I am genuinely shocked by what I have found here, but not surprised.

    I would much rather this be an actual science forum than to make waves that it is not. I came here to have science discussions, not to play spy vs. spy.

    re·al, real
    /ˈrē(ə)l/, /rāˈäl/
    Adjective
    Actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed: "Julius Caesar was a real person".

    Synonyms
    adjective. actual - true - genuine - veritable - virtual - factual
    adverb. really - very - truly - badly - indeed - actually
    noun. reality

    It would seem that way.

    You have a separate conspiracy section? Isn't that redundant?

    Gentlemen, start your engines.


    Some questions for you. Do you work for this place? Are you a mod sock puppet?

    You are supposedly just a regular member. Why do you take such a strong stand? What are you doing in site feedback?

    Have we met before at one of the sister sites, with you using a different name?

    I am fairly new to you and I don't want to make waves, but I have come to believe you are not a real science-posting member of this site.

    The persona you project is like a person throwing stones inside a hall of mirrors.

    I think the persona you are projecting is that of an uninformed crank posing as a person interested in science, who is determined to bicker and spread disinformation rather than to engage in scientific repartee.

    I suspect you project the same persona on sites like that.


    The mods on such sites probably already had to deal with you.

    You probably feel persecuted after encountering mods who are grounded in science, who probably trumped all of your arguments. You probably have no science education yourself, only the tendency to claim that you are better than the experts.

    You probably are considered a threat, from inquiring into immaterial information, like site ownership, which has nothing to do with science.

    I suspect this thread is to draw attention to yourself and to usurp the stated policy of the site.

    Your posting history contradicts the second half of that statement.

    Many people believe many things, what you haven't done is make a case as to why your belief should matter to someone else.

    You appear obsessed with those other sites. In a lot of the threads you have made I have seen repeated references to them. We don't care about them. If you are interested about site ownership and funding then I would suggest talking to Plazma Inferno; however, he is not under any obligation to provide you with answers.

    All you have stated is "I believe...", and until you make some kind of case as to why your belief should matter to someone else, discussion will probably be limited.

    You sound a little paranoid.

    The persona you project is like a mod in disguise.

    I think the persona you are projecting is that of a site antibody, detecting an intruder.

    My persona is remarkably consistent.

    Yes, they did. Now those exact same mods are dealing with me here.

    I feel persecuted by mods and mod favorites who are pseudoscientists.

    I have a masters degree in biomedical visualization. I went to med school. I have helped design personality software for social robots used in university research. I am a professional computer animator and special effects designer with over 15 major motion picture credits, two academy awards, and I animated two Superbowl commercials. I am a founder of two highly successful companies. I was the producer who started the Shrek project at DreamWorks. I have made major, recognized contributions in multiple artistic and technical fields. I am a professional mechanical designer. I am a professional musician with multiple recording credits. I am researcher who is now working on a PhD in social theory.

    I know more about science, and I am *WAY* smarter than you.

    I am definitely considered a threat or you wouldn't be bothering with me.

    I suspect you are just making that up.

    You are another green valued member. Are you a mod in waiting? Are you a sock puppet?

    A real science forum would care about it's reputation and would take site feedback much more seriously.

    I had to do something. I got bored since you ruined my first and my second serious thread on this site. Maybe you should keep an eye on your new Asperger's thread instead of harassing me here.

    No, it doesn't. Why are you interested in me?

    My case has already been made. It is self evident in all the threads I have posted on. That is what my threads are all about. I am presenting real science to pseudoscientists to gage your reactions and log your glaring scientific mistakes for outside readers to see.

    If Plazma Inferno were running a real science discussion forum, he wouldn't let you speak for it in the first place. I am sure he is aware of me.

    OK. If you think this discussion is limited please feel free to leave it. I find it very informative.

    Nope. Zelig.

    Let's see your CV, green valued member.

    I would be happy to demonstrate my claim (if you so desire). That you believe I am interested in you is yet another "belief". I saw the thread title and it screamed of subjective nonsense so I had to take a look. You just happened to be the thread starter.

    If you consider your case made then everybody's response to it shows that your case has failed to matter to them. I'll specualte that the rest of your statement is also a belief.

    Why? Because you say so? That is yet again a belief.

    If you find something informative, it means that you have learned something. So, what exactly did you learn?

    There are probably only three people on this site who recognize your reference to Zelig.

    My "ha!" is simply the postmodernist expression of pleasure upon recognizing a - somewhat obscure - reference.

    Thank you, wynn.

    I am glad you are one of the one's who got it. Who else do think might?

    It's interesting you mention Zelig.

    King, Mike (2008). "Zelig and the Narcissism of the Other-Directed Person."


    There is a peculiar kind of narcissism in people who are other-directed; a kind of social dysfunction.
    "Neurotypicals" may actually, paradoxically, posses a greater deal of social autonomy than "Aspies."

    So, do you see yourself as the defender of science? Do you have subjective nonsense radar?

    My case has not failed. "Everybody" hasn't responded. It has only failed according to green valued members, so far. Your speculation is sophomoric.

    My beliefs are based on my experience here. Not everyone who has a bad experience here is crank.

    I am learning about high post number, green valued members and their attitudes.

    I am not the one to defend anything, but think of it yourself, if this place is like a hall of mirrors than were do you think you are addressing this thought to? Yourself. Being as this forum is an "unscientifically" proclaimed by you, your OP statement itself is granted the same status))) Or do you disagree to blame yourself as part of the matrix of this forum's faults to be the science driven campaign for us all? If yes than retract your statements as futile and unsound.

    So, these reactions that I get here on this thread are just knee jerk reactions to things seen as unscientific? Aren't scientists supposed to be curious? Maybe further investigation is warranted.
