    Thank you kindly for adding your claim of willful ignorance to this Thread.
    I am sure that Kittamaru will appreciate the assistance.

    You are wasting your time and energy when you try to apply Logic, Intelligence or even just plain Common Sense on SciForums, birch.
    Those Traits/Values are, more often than not, unwelcome here.

    But if you want to malign other Posters...or...especially Malign Donald Trump...well then...

    I just find some of the attitudes peculiar. for one, how some members treat this site just as if they are at work or church. who the hell goes to forums to be totally stiff and starched completely when you already have to do that at work? for instance, I find MR's content hilarious (yet still interesting because you can tell he/she is trying to find proof or evidence in some way relentlessly searching) and posters like that add levity. you kind of have got to root for them or else you have no heart.

    I also think moderators give themselves needless headaches with too much fuss when it's a simple maneuver to move non-scientific content/threads or just simply delete inappropriate content, pm the member and explain why (not personally but easy copy/paste) and done.

    Well, there's something of a difference between attacking political figures and attacking other posters on a board. The first one is pretty much the purpose of any political commentary section of a board; the second is somewhat toxic to the community as a whole.

    The truth is, I like this forum because it is often comedy central, not to admin (of course) or most members (which is why it's even funnier). it's funny (imo) because of the juxtaposition of the fact it's a serious science forum on the one hand, yet attracts off the wall kooks or more likely just characters trying out an unconventional idea (they wouldnt say to most people in their real life) to the real scientists or fledgeling ones, mostly because (unbeknownst to them), they are not really trying to be annoying or trolls; it's because they truly believe in their ideas and want the respect of the scientific community or to take them seriously, which is partly endearing and flattering (though it's not appreciated). which is, again, even funnier.

    but what is not appreciated is that without them to add some spice or uniqueness or different perspective or just completely wrong to be fodder to be taken to task to argue otherwise, this site would just be like a textbook or like a standard college course via media.

    ''hilarious '' '' levity'' . There's poor old MR seriously and ''relentlessly '' trying to back up his beliefs, and your laughing at him and it seems your patronising him also.

    Don't confuse me with another bandwagon.

    I culled them from the original thread because by post 7, it was clear you were primarily looking to cause trouble, as your posting history at SciForums as a whole has shown to be your Modus operandi.



    Then it would appear what you are looking for isn't a discussion forum, but perhaps Twitter or Facebook. You are aware there is a "like" function, are you not?

    Simply put - because asking you for clarification is typically a futile gesture.




    It would appear you are either unable to understand the premise, or are fully realizing it and attempting to skirt it through dishonest means.

    This is almost entertaining...

    Hm, I think I see where you are getting pissy - thanks to your utterly fucked post formatting, it appears you think I've stated some of the posts that were removed were said blatant examples. Granted, they did (you were asked to support your claim, and the singular link you posted didn't), but my statement was to your long and sordid posting history here. The fact that you did not understand such an obvious statement (especially in light of the many examples provided of said history) is, honestly, NMFP.

    It isn't prejudice so much as it is simply tiring of dealing with the same bullshit over and over - case in point, DMOE stalked paddoboy relentlessly, despite repeated warnings to leave him alone, with the sole intention of derailing his threads. I believe the entirety of the moderation team would agree that what DMOE did was way out of line, for that instance alone. Then there was his attempt to attribute illegal actions to paddoboy without any evidence.

    Throw on top that DMOE has made it a habit of posting either zero content posts (such as his ellipses or grok'd), as well as the number of times he has simply trolled away without offering a shred of evidence of his own... well, I think at this point, it's not hard to understand why several other members have him on ignore - it simply isn't worth dealing with someone who is only there to make a mockery of logical discussion.

    I think there is an obvious solution to your problem, if this were truly what you were at SciForums for... after all, I'm certain there are plenty of science minded forums out there with far stricter rules than ours.

    No, you just want attention...

    But this is the part that i dont understand. then just dont respond back if you already know. It ceases easily as they have no feedback.

    A lot of what i see is unnecessary fuss over the trivial. Just ignore or dont engage or stop when it becomes circular. Not everyone will agree.

    Really? You just don't like being caught patronising someone. The MR content you find ''hilarious'' is to him evidence of his beliefs. Great source of ''levity'' . Kicking the underdog, bad form old chap.

    Thank you for demonstrating my point.

    At this point, I think this farce has run its course.

    You've picked the wrong one, sweetie. You've got to come better than that. I've read your posts patronizing and being condescending to him/her and specifically his 'evidence', even hopelessly berating him knowing full well that scientific evidence does not exist, which is why its in the fringe section. Oops, look who is caught kicking him? But you weren't the only one.

    Dont pretend you've miraculously defected sides and trying to alleviate any sense of guilty conscience by projecting some bs my way. My post has nothing to do with you and your taking up arms for him, to me, is just false bravado. Or more like a weird attempt at discrediting sympathy toward MR by accusations that its patronizing. Dig?

    If you are just looking for a petty quarrel, this isnt doing it for me. lol

    You admit it? Good.
    I fooled him with a ghost story once (got a MR like). That was not being patronizing because I told him and you on that thread it's easy to make things up. And, I have told him that I think he uses bitching to deflect questioning of his 'evidence'. Also, I noticed if left to himself he just kept posting cut & paste ufo/ spook pictures and stories one after the other with no comments. If someone is not open to discussion of their posts and just want to make a personal blog of the site, then the site is better off without them. Or perhaps we should all do it. At least we know now why you like MR's threads, you like a laugh at MR's beliefs.

    I don't pretend nothing... I wouldn't mind MR being kicked off if he was to keep up his old ways.

    I was demonstrating no "point", Kittamaru!
    I was merely expressing my condolences over whatever issue you have that you have allowed to consume/control(?) you to get you to this point....
    It's your Farce - You created it - You control it....

    Are you absolutely sure that you don't want to spew any more Spurious Allegations or Accusations against me?
    Remember, Kittamaru : You are a Moderator ; You wield much Power ; You have Control

    Really a bummer though that you don't care to or are unable to participate in an Open, Honest, and Earnest discussion about the intricacies of navigating the various Ups and Downs of the changing Economies over Multiple Generations...
