Yes. Again, you designed it to attract unwanted attention and then complained that it got unwanted attention. Because, R.C., I can Read. I read the bad science, the misconceptions; I read the mistakes, the insinuations and the implications. I read the statements you made. I also refuted the misconceptions - the last response I made to Mars Rover before you were banned as a sock and your current account extended in its ban. I know it was bad science and unless the conclusion was going to include a "Sorry, I had misunderstood some concepts. I see I was wrong," then the 'conclusion' would have made no difference. I agree that the off topic frustrations can detract from the subject matter- however, so can repeated and uncompromising claims of falsehood. You're so busy looking at everyone else, have you taken the time to take a good hard look at you? Considering I PM'ed one earlier and called him an "ass," I rather doubt it. But I'm not so quick to jump on your bandwagon just because we both have had disagreements with the moderation. You claim your "experiment" proved something while you ignore the very clear problem of how you invited the very response you received. You justify that by saying you had to- I agree- you DID have to in order to claim that you'll get that kind of response. But for me, whether your arguments have merit or not, you lost credibility when you cheated- lied- created a sock puppet. Complained of being banned for having a sock puppet. It makes no sense at all. These complaints lack merit- so it calls your previous complaints into question. Let's assume your previous complaints do have merit- that the mods are out to get you- Do you think lying and cheating the system will help you to make a stand? I don't give a damn if sock puppets are against the forum rules or not. I'm against sock puppetry. I'd have said all the same things even if the rules allowed sock puppetry. Nonsense again. There are hard feelings. You're feeling bitter, bothered and treated unfairly. And some of that may be justified. But what I've spelled out above is not justified and you should take the time to read my posts and do some serious thinking on the subject instead of blocking the idea you acted badly.
