You seem to be not understanding the process here.
You keep saying "I resign" then clicking the "Post Reply" button. You have done this at least six times so far. The process of resigning requires NOT clicking the "Post Reply" button. See if you can manage that.

Since Futitilist is too ignorant to understand the physics, chemistry, and economic refutations of his etp model that he has received from more than half a dozen who know those subjects well, I'll try one from history back when the world ran on wood energy:

Peak Wooder: We are so screwed. Where are we going to get enough wood to meet demand? Everything we do -- our entire society is based on wood.
We'll collapse without it.

Cornucopio: We'll switch to coal.

Peak Wooder: Oh, yeah right. And monkeys are gonna fly out of my butt. You idiot. Our whole economy is based on cheap wood. Wagons, housing, tools, transport, shipping, cooking, packaging, heating, blacksmithing, furniture. We're doomed without it. Do you have any idea how foul coal is? And how far you have to go to get it? Where are you going to get the wood to move all that coal? For God sakes, wood just grows out of the ground, and you're proposing that we dig into solid rock for that filthy substandard junk? You need to up your medication.

Do you have any idea how many people its going to take to dig those holes? And how are you going to make their houses, and keep them warm, and get them to the job without wood? What are you going to make their shovels and wagons out of? The only reason those people can dig coal now is because they're subsidized with cheap wood!!! And even supposing that you could marshall all those people you need to do the digging, you'll just hit water, and then it's game over. You can't bail out the water because YOU NEED WOOD TO MAKE THE F*CKING BUCKETS. Sorry man, but coal is nothing but a bunch of wishful thinking. You're pinning all your hopes on it because you're afraid to face the fact that our wood-based society is doomed. The stupid, myopic wood party is over and the hangover is going to be a killer. There is simply nothing which can replace the convenience, versatility and cheapness 'of wood'. { 'of oil,' for those too dim-witted to see the point without this help}

Woops, I guess I couldn't manage it.

Maybe it is because you keep writing comments to me. You must really miss me.

Get over it.

And please don't follow me somewhere else this time. I have never enjoyed talking to you.

I am glad you are getting a good laugh at my expense, bully.

My guess is you didn't enjoy talking to someone who didn't fall for your sensationalist bullshit

You will, of course, provide evidence to show that I am in some way bullying you; after all, you don't wish to break yet another of the sites rules (ie, making claims without evidence), do you?

You are right about that. I certainly wouldn't want to break the rules.

I will present the evidence as you request. But I need some time to prepare my case. Should I start a new thread to present the evidence?

Given how freely you toss that accusation, I suspect you needn't much time; after all, I know full well what evidence you will try to bring and how wrong it will be... so how does an hour sound?

Perhaps if you would open your eyes, you would see

That won't work for me, your honor. I have other things to do today. We will just have to reschedule. Or, since you already know the outcome, you could just pass judgement without letting me gather my evidence, like the kangaroo court that this is.

Ironic that you would call this a Kangaroo Court - you see, when you signed up here, you agreed to be bound by the rules of this site.

Given that you have chosen to willfully violate them several times, and that a cursory glance into your history on other forums has shown this to be a pattern of behavior spanning several years... I don't see why it would matter if I gave you an hour or a year. Your argument, in essence, boils down to the fact that you consistently consider people who don't agree with you to be below you/ignorant/trolls/et al.

None the less - take all the time you wish. I genuinely look forward to what will no doubt be an entertaining spectacle of falsehoods, misrepresentations, and lies

Indeed, when given the option to try and legitimately prove your point, you back down, knowing full well you cannot.

How droll.

At this juncture, I must ask - is there any reason to leave this thread open, or has it run its course?

I have not had the opportunity to miss you. Despite several grand dramatic flourishes leading up to a big trampling exit - you're still here.
And yet you continue to do so. Odd. On the other hand, I do get a kick out of your predictions, followed by your attempts to weasel out of them when they fail to materialize.

Well, if you are really leaving this time, good luck finding sycophants.

Glad to see the immune system of this forum has done its job at last.
