just a suggestion
« on: April 05, 2013, 07:45:07 AM »
you like going to this child friendly pub for you dinner. thing is this new family move in and their kid is really annoying. the kid runs round sitting at you table and other peoples tables and then starts shouting and messing about with your food.
the managers do nothing and say the pub is child friendly. slowly but surely regular customers dont come in so much or just make sure they avoid the annoying kid and its family.
you dont want to stop going to your favorite pub though, they make the best fish and chips and pour the best pints.

the managers hear you out and consider asking the childs family to stop coming but are unsure what to do.

Its actually quite entertaining hearing all the things that do not exist in Sceptis world.
But I do agree, its a black eye on the FES, but seeing no one is minding the store, its a free for all.

People come here to hear each other's opinions, debate with each other, and joke around in the lower forums.  Sceptimatic has not broken any rules.  Yes, his opinions are some times a little out there, but he has the right to express his opinions just like you do.

I have to agree with Jroa. As low a regard as I hold for Sceptimatic's, he does have the right to them. I also agree with Jason_85. The guy is a PR nightmare for anyone who seriously wants FET to gain any sort of credibility. It was tough before, he makes it nigh impossible.

Why? Sceptimatic is just unaffiliated with FES as Jason and his terrible "You're stupid!" posts.

The issue with sceptimatic isn't his opinions, it's that his posts are low-content.  All he has to say on every subject just boils down to something along the lines of "That doesn't seem right to me."  And that's it.  Say what you like about odd theories that have been debated before on this forum, like dinosaurs building boats, moonlight being dangerous, or alternative histories of the world, but at least there was something to actually discuss with those topics.  Their proponents put in genuine effort to make arguments, support their claims with evidence, logically rebut objections, etc.

With sceptimatic, however, the only thing that's relevant is sceptimatic.  At the end of the day, he just doesn't like something and so determines that it's wrong.  We can't debate that.  There is no discussion to be had on sceptimatic's own little reality where he personally decides what is right and what is wrong.

Is he unaffiliated with the FES?  How is someone supposed to make that distinction when first lurking on the forums?

I have asked for a list of who is officially affiliated with the FES before, but have received no reply.

I seriously think he is just trolling you all. Every week he starts a new thread about something he knows you will strongly disagree with and to make you mad as bros. it's classic trolling 101. If the powers that be wish to make the forum appear to be akin to other crappy forums like the landover baptist church forum. Then so be it. I won't post in anything he posts in and many others don't too. It's a FFS moment when it does post in a thread of interest.
PP he pretends he is a flat earth believer, his posts are about flat earth, his thread count makes him look like a long standing flat earther. Sorry to break it to you but he is affiliated with the FES by default.

That was useful  ::).

Related to your post, though, I absolutely agree about Scepti. I find myself avoiding topics he's taken over, which is probably bad for the society.

Right now he would appear to be the FES front man. As the only one really commenting in the upper forums. Know what I'm saying?

It is a shame that people who do not contribute to the upper fora feel a need to run off people who do.

Jroa is right.  He may be annoying, insane, and possibly in massive denial, but he didn't break any rules.

However, it seems he's going to stop posting.  (5 points says he posts within a week)

Indeed.

By lurking moar.

Are you or are you not allowed to troll in the upper forums?

Who cares if he is breaking rules or not. See the analogy. Jroa if you imply that I do not then I honestly do not think that is true. I made my posts there. I would rather just read for the best part. However this thread isn't about me.

I don't understand why a few of you defend him anyway when you refuse to converse with him. All the threads make you all look retarded and its the same dribble troll feed every time.
Like any suggestions that come up it won't happen anyway.

The mods could always just grow a pair and be a lot harsher. I should of got repeated warnings for posting back to the tank. I got nothing. Same goes for a lot of people. Why is that? And why not just remove people who are acting so retarded?

But it doesn't matter how much I rant. Bottom line is that I have still wasted my time posting about/to it. And now every other poster in this thread has been hit by the tank too for replying. The shame.

You're not.

Pretty much everyone.

I don't understand why a few of you defend him anyway when you refuse to converse with him.
Because we (or at least I) believe in freedom of speech.

All the threads make you all look retarded and its the same dribble troll feed every time.
If you cannot distinguish the opinions of one person from those of everyone else, I honestly have no qualms about you considering to ragequit FES.

The mods could always just grow a pair and be a lot harsher.
I sure hope this doesn't happen. The days of retarded bam-happy moderation are mostly gone now, save for the forbidden word.

Then from your own quoting he should punished for hardcore trolling and dealt with as people care about the rules.

Unless you actually believe it?


Rage quit? No, I'm affiliated with the FES mofo :P

I just don't think he's trolling, that's all. He's likely a devil's advocate, but that's always been fine here.

I doubt he's a DA. When your response to arguments is "I won't talk to you if you don't think anything is odd about the official story" then it's hard to be a troll or a DA.

Seems to me that he is genuinely insane.

That doesn't help when the entire thread is made up of sceptimatic posting and everyone else replying to his posts, as threads that  sceptimatic posts in tend to be.

Really, guys, he was an atrocious poster.  We're better off without him.

Just looked at the Landover Baptist Church forum.  Now that really is as mad as a box of frogs.

I do agree with you about Scepti trolling; I think he has been very successful at getting people to wind themselves up; he must have been having a great time.  I wonder where he will go next?  Not that I really want to be there, I just wonder.
The video demonstrates that we can not fully trust our senses.
