I've just been flicking through it.  The scary thing is that I'm having trouble working out if any of these believers are trolling.  If they're being genuine, then wow.  Just wow.

There would not be so many replies if people did not enjoy his posts.
Actually, I don't enjoy his posts. I really don't. However, I think we need consistency in how rules are executed. In my opinion, if markjo, jason_85 and Puttah are okay, then so is sceptimatic.

We let people say what they want, even if what they want to say is shit. We only disallow a single word in the entire forum. Let's keep it that way (or maybe even try the radical approach of not banning words!).

That's why I made the analogy at the start. Sometimes the powers that be have to step in regardless of the rules. You used to regular the debate. You and thork could tag team and put people in their place. But you no longer enjoy your fish and chips either as every thread is turned itno the sceptictank show.

It's a word that black people sometimes use to describe other black people (or, indeed, just people), but it's considered a racial slur if a non-black person uses it.

No, just that one. We have a well-established precedent for this.

Bammed for describing the forbidden word.

Scepti is the most eminent FE researcher of our time. He's never even heard of most of you. The threads he particpates inkeep going longer than most, showing there is interest there. He is tireless in his pursuit of truth. Shame on you.

It is also frowned upon to post about elements... For some reason.

Also lemons. Never post about lemons.

Anyway, he may have been a bad poster but banning him would have gone against everything we stand for here. Even if he was trolling, how do you prove that? And doesn't it leave a terrible precedent for banning anyone we don't like? After all, there's no one here with more than a few thousand posts who's never been accused of trolling.

I never directly accused you, but I've speculated with others that you must be trolling T&I on numerous occasions.

Never trolled T&I. I'm just often wrong.

im sorry i failed the septic hate group, i thought i got a virtual win for a brief moment.

to claim you dont think he is trolling is a little dishonest though. also a ban would be harsh.

its fair to say the powers may as well lock this one up. it was a silly notion to think that quality is better than quantity.
