See http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtopic=27448 Kornowski, who self-describes himself as a convicted "rap[ist]", is incorrect when he uses the adjective caddish to describe actions motivated by principles and a sense of honor. It's rather stupid to cite this examples to two viewers of your thread who share many of the same principles (reality matters, brutal honesty is more useful than sycophantic lying, numerology is no model, ...). For context, I first present my post that explained how you were wrong parsing a news article: http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtopic=27419&view=findpost&p=446480 (Feb 10 2010) And here is the sanitized post you imported by reference: You just used "caddish" twice. If you mean "unprincipled", then please list at least three "principles" science forum moderators should have that you find missing. If you mean "dishonorable", then you are dealing with an abstract perception, difficult to quantify. Moderators, as the elected agents to receive power from the forum owners, are obviously in an exalted position of power and thus honorable in a sense identified by Johnson in his 1755 dictionary. Likewise, if honor is virtuous conduct, by our shared principles science forum moderators who criticize and restrict your posting privileges for similar reasons are demonstrating a definition of virtuous conduct exists that perhaps you lack the ability to perceive. And if you are going for some nonsense about nobility of soul or "scorn of meanness", then you must pity us our sense of duty which causes us to act as volunteer bouncers and cops -- professions where meanness is applied in a manner to provide mutually agreed benefits. (Read the terms of service!) Also you were not banned for any formula, but for a pattern of behavior,as petitioned by AlphaNumeric http://www.physforum.com/index.php?showtopic=27448&view=findpost&p=449965 (March 9, 2010): which resulted in the moderation action: "Mar 10 2010, 03:38 AM: Banned for excessive delusions and failure to connect with fellow human beings." How is it a prediction when I supplied you with the data before you started work? Other than this invitation, I would feel uncomfortable in dragging posts from 2010 on another forum to this one. I think that's a terrible prediction, in that I don't recall sending you any private communication other than the March 10 final action, and I don't see how honesty makes me less likely to appear in a thread which is mentioning me by name and citing my past actions.
