Your fearless leader banned me. Tell Ben that Wicked is a great synonym for Atheist! Webster got a lot of things right. I guess PZ couldn't take the heat. He was losing so he had no choice but to get rid of me before I made all of you look even worse.Posted by: D Rodgers at March 27, 2005 04:56 PM
Well, D., PZ's not my fearless leader, for at least one reason.
And I'll ban you too if you behave here the way you did there. But if you can engage in friendly conversation - which means NOT spamming my comments with 82 posts in a single thread, and NOT going on monomaniacally about your religious beliefs - then you are welcome here.Posted by: Chris Clarke at March 27, 2005 05:07 PM
Heh, yeah I guess I am pretty wicked sometimes. Wink wink, nudge nudge. Know what I mean?
Don't worry, Rodger Dodger. If it's the last thing I ever do, I'll get that cowardly PZ to reverse his banning decision. It's censorship, plain and simple, and I won't have it. Science needs skeptical avatars like yourself to hold it accountable at all times. I know you probably think I'm being sarcastic, but to be perfectly honest Professor Myers' habit of barring intelligent debate on the weaknesses of evolutionary THEORY has always stuck in my craw, and made me wonder what he's really hiding.
Keep fighting the good fight, Rodger Dodger!Posted by: Ben at March 27, 2005 07:33 PM
I promise....I will try to behave. This is my last post for today. Please repeat your rules. Am I allowed to speak of God at all?
PZ seems to have a double standard. He thinks it is perfectly fine to use name-calling and other insults when people have different views from him, but he doesn't think it is o.k. for others to insult him. In other words, he can dish it out, but he can't take it.
Thank you for welcoming me to your site, in spite of our disagreements on Creationism vs. Evolution.Posted by: D Rodgers at March 27, 2005 08:00 PM
Am I allowed to speak of God at all?
If that's your main purpose here, you might want to find somewhere else to play. But if there's a post where such a comment would be on topic, and you can refrain from proselytising, go ahead and mention whatever subject you like.
Example of allowable God comment:
"Yes, that is a very good song, I agree: I listen to it and it reminds me of God's love for us all."
I disagree with it, but it's nice.
Example of anathematic God comment:
"All religions are false and you are going to hell."
There is disagreement among commenters here. But people who make this place feel less than welcoming for those who disagree get bounced, sometimes without warning. And that's happened only twice in two years.Posted by: Chris Clarke at March 27, 2005 08:13 PM
The next morning... D Rodgers' attack on another commenter here, as well as his using another commenter''s email address in an apparent attempt at harassment, has him banned from this site.
I suspected he wouldn't be able to go 24 hours without deliberately fucking up.Posted by: Chris Clarke at March 28, 2005 11:44 AM
