    So, as I expected, you can't answer the questions. You don't have any convictions in your belief, just a desire for it to be true and a litany of rote to spew until the conversation gets beyond the superficial--at which point, you tap out, blaming everyone else for your shortcomings.

    Nothing left to see here, folks.

    LOL! If I respond you flame me, and if I don't respond you flame me. Seriously, what's wrong with you?

    If you feel he is flaming, simply hit the report button - do not even type a reply to it. That is my advice to you on the matter.

    How am I flaming? Is this one of those "make the rules up as we go" moments?

    Seriously, he casts aspersions on others while bailing on his weak pseudo-religious claims, and we're not allowed to make note of it! Since when? Oh, right, because it's me, and because Kittamaru.

    I don't want anyone to get infracted. Balerion and I are both looking at a permanent ban now. I just wish he'd stop it and be respectful like other members are. Well...some members..

    Respectful of what? You don't listen to reason, and you duck questions left and right. Why do you think you deserve respect?

    Dude, if you lived near me, I'd go get a beer with you and we'd laugh about this. But you don't, so all we have is this forum. If you're going to act in a certain way, people are going to respond to you in a certain way.It's all about how you present yourself.

    Look..anytime you speak disparagingly of someone, insinuating they are cowardly, dishonest, delusional, or immature because of the things they say, you are in fact flaming. There is no need for that. Noone has to go into how any poster is or the kind of person they are in order to make their argument. You can make your point entirely without belittling, ridiculing, or accusing them of motives you have no clue about. And for the record, no. Respect doesn't have to be earned. It's a given. You respect strangers you just meet--- people you don't even know yet. They don't have to earn anything from you. Surely you do this in the real world. Why is it so hard for you online?

    Just my opinion of what I'd do in your shoes, MR, but I'd avoid tempting fate by not having a steady presence in the Fringe section, for awhile. Or even wait until an infraction or two had expired. I don't care what assurances or promises from the Mods have been given elsewhere, these specific sub-forums are like a speed-trap or Venus flytrap, and capricious as to what can happen...

    Maybe so. Everytime Balerion and I clash here it's like Gandalf and the Balrog locked in a ferocious embrace only to both plummet into the abysmal ban zone. lol! So how long till these infractions expire? I thought they were permanent, like scarlet letters or pink triangles.

    Click the "Infractions" tab in your account / profile, and there should be dates there concerning when they expire.

    One active infraction of 1 point to expire on 11/06. Does that mean I'm still up for permaban? In any case, I'm taking your advice. I can devote plenty of time to fringe subjects on my own time without discussing them here even though..oh lookie!.. we are already up to post 93 in just this one thread. There's certainly plenty of other things to explore in the other subforums..

    You're mistaking courtesy for respect. And I'd extend that courtesy to a stranger...right up until he started going on about the paranormal being real. Then I'd call him a crank.

    Respect is earned. And if you think your posting here wsrrants it, I can't help you. You flame more than anyone on this forum, and you also complain about being flamed more thn anyone.

    Balerion didn't use any of those words in the post in question and I don't see anything that even comes close to implying any of them -- and neither did a moderator. What I see are questions who's answers you may find problematic, not unlike the question I asked you that you first deflected by asking me a question in response and then ignored completely.

    You are right in that there is no need to get personal about why you conduct yourself in the way you do: your conduct speaks for itself and is unacceptable regardless of your precise motive.

    Right..that's why I said insinuate. And it's my total right to ignore or respond to anything you post without having my character assassinated. So get used to it, especially when you yourself have a long history of flaming me.

    LOL! So you DON'T respect people you don't know or who haven't "earned" your respect. Good to know. At least you're being consistent here. Color me gone.

    This is dishonest. You're not answering the questions because you can't answer them. If you really were ignoring us because we flame you, you'd actually,you know, ignore us. But you're not. You're still accusimg of being mean.

    Nobody buhs your crap, MR. Nobody.

    Insinuate. Synonym: Imply.
    We all have lots of rights here. When you respond to a question with another question, people have a right to judge that as being an evasive tactic. You should pay more attention to how such posts are judged - running afoul of such judgements is, after all, why you have been banned before.
    Do you not see that answering a question with another question instead of saying the answer can be seen as a show of disrespect?

    I just checked my infraction list and not once was I banned for being "evasive" or answering a question with a question. I don't even think that's an infractable offense. Do you?

    LOL! He says, answering a question with a question...
