Latest mod abuse: James
« on: April 25, 2010, 02:39:21 PM »
Why is Mad James giving low content post warnings when someone merely asks what the evidence for an explanation given in the FAQ is? (Concerning the Earth's magnetic field and aurora).
People ask for evidence of FE ideas all the time in this forum, it's in no way low content.

Here's the post concerned:
Quote
Q: "How can a compass work on a Flat Earth?"

A: The magnetic field is generated in the same fashion as with the RE (Diagram). Thus, the magnetic south pole is near the geographic north pole, just like on the RE.  The magnetic north pole is on the underside of the Earth. The Ice Wall is not the south pole, but acts as it, as it is the furthest from the center of the earth that you can follow the magnetic field. The field is vertical in this area, accounting for the aurora australis.[/faq]

Where is your evidence to back this up?

Gayer doesn't live in an atmosphere of vaporised mustard like you appear to, based on your latest photo.

I suspect that James, like myself, did not notice his question, contained as it was within the quote from the FAQ:


Read this on the FAQ.

I thought he'd just cut out a bit of the FAQ without asking any question, and I'm sure James did likewise - it wasn't until you raised it here that I noticed the bit at the end. Honest mistake, made due to poor formatting. We're only human. That's my take on it anyway.

Illegal immigration
Obama being president
Obamacare
The IRS enforcing Obamacare
The bailout money Obama spent on companies "too large to fail"
The 200,000 people already designated that will not be able to receive Obamacare because they already pay a higher premium insurance

I could continue but that is a good place to start your complaining.

Looks like SOMEONE is pissy that he isn't the center of attention anymore.

I bet he abuses his mod power by banning you guys for not complaining about him anymore.
