    I concur.
    This entire thread is ridiculous, and serves no constructive point whatsoever.
    Assuming we're all adults here, it goes without saying that there will always be differences of opinion, in particular on noted 'heated' topics such as religion and politics. That being said, it's a little pedantic to go tossing out accusations of discrimination whenever one is faced with opposition....

    Faith, yes. This is your inevitable refrain when confronted by an argument you can't shout down. Your "lack of faith" in my honesty led you right down the blinkered road to accuse me, of all things, of homophobic bigotry.

    Who has been treated badly..? What bigotry is "the other side" responsible for in the past few weeks..? Actually it's almost all just you.

    do a cleanup


    when james has something substantial to back up his allegations and is prepared to defend his characterizations, you can reopen with his response(s)
    the onus is not on me to do anything until such a time. i withhold my opinion until all the facts are in. i cannot comment nor make suggestions until....


    ...that is actually verified to be the case. until such a time i shall tentatively characterize james's attacks as a really really vicious trolling.

    who here is now actively working "to avoid any real discussion or debate"?
    why would anyone think they can get away with what appears to be spurious allegations of misconduct without providing substantiation?

    is this the example you want to set for the community?


    indeed

    Gustav,
    The threads pending a review by all moderators, unfortunately they aren't all online at the same time which makes it a bit time consuming. The closure is just to stop the thread side tracking and derailing beyond what the initial post was about.

    Once an internal decision is made, the thread will either be reopen or scrapped. It won't be down to any singular moderators decision, however it doesn't mean that what ever decision is made is was agreed to by every moderator just the majority (and believe me most try to play a well rounded mediator role).

    Until that time I ask people to just hold out on the subject (do not continue to create threads on the subject) until we have something to put forwards from the whole moderator team rather than just as individual moderators.

    Wow, so demanding. Is the staff even obliged to comply with your request?

    what has been suggested are reasonable and rational courses of action from my perspective, as a member of the community

    emoting about this is irrelevant. while it is your prerogative to do so, it also illustrates your priorities.

    a focus on personalities

    "I want this....with this.."
    "You do this, or do this.."

    Of course...that doesn't sound demanding, hm?

    Anyway, thanks for not replying to my question, and dragging it to a "I know what your priorities are" level.
    Like generally, I wasn't referring to your personality but to the quoted part...if you consider the previously quoted part as a reflection of your character...then..well..boo.

    Moderator note: I have reopened this thread. Closing it just results in people creating other threads on the same topic. I'd rather keep everything in one place. I have no problem with anybody expressing their opinion here; it just continues to prove my point about the diversity of views on this.

    Wouldn't that be against the forum rules?

    As I said earlier, I have neither the time at present nor the inclination to wade through thousands of SAM's posts to find examples of her bigotry to present to you. You can go look for yourself, if you haven't read them in the past. They aren't that hard to find, but it takes a little time going through the list.

    I have already made my substantial argument in this thread, which you have largely ignored in your demands for more "evidence". I have invited you, if you disagree with my assessment of SAM, to post your alternative opinion and assessment, explaining why she is not a hater and why her behaviour ought to be supported/accepted on sciforums.

    Armchair critics are a dime a dozen, gustav. You can sit back and watch the game, interjecting the occasional ascerbic comment, or you can join in and put your case. At the moment, you're just shouting at the umpire from the sidelines.

    That's your prerogative.
