...grow a frikkin' brain Martin!
My advice to you Martin, is wipe the dung off your face, use your torch to burn your pitchfork, and enter the 21st century you retarded dark ages peasant.
Christianity is a disgustingly hypocritical cult with a sea of blood on its hands.
...what can you expect from a hate cult like Christianity I suppose?
The frustrating thing is that this member is clearly knowledgable and submits interesting and well-documented posts; unfortunately, these valuable contributions are periodically interspersed with others that feature the kind of unpleasantries shown above. In this case, we have him levelling insults at a brand new poster and--once again--spitting overly generalised anti-religious venom. The only variation on the regular theme is that today it's Christianity that is foul, where yesterday it was Islam.I apologise and promise not to call Martin a retarded dark ages peasant with dung on his face again. I will in future refer to him as "medievally challenged".
bob61 is taking a break until Friday to allow himself time to catch up with his outstanding correspondence and swot-up on the etiquette manual.
This isn't a place for posting rubbish about any creed, race or whatever. When asked for evidence to support the posts nothing was forthcoming.
Multiple staff tried multiple times to work with Bob61. His rare responses were rude, included ad hominem attacks and showed no understanding of the issues
Unfortunately when the mute came off he started immediately with false assertions, rudeness and repetition of the recurring issues, both on thread and in PM.A very heavy steer was given that once the temporary mute was removed Bob61 should stay away from the threads where he seemed to be unable to contribute.
Nils Meijer is now banned.Nils Meijer has been issued a green warning levied in response to his excessively angry and spiteful comments posted during a flamefest on Friday.
All posts comprising this unfortunate incident - including comments from bystanders and pleas for calm - have been eradicated. Now stripped of the toxic bits, the thread in question will be returned to public view and reopened.
Follow-on posts alluding to, discussing, or continuing the deleted Friday flamefest will themselves be subject to perfunctory elimination and evaluation as potential grounds for further sanctions.
Now unbanned.Despite a succession of official warnings and some private correspondence, Alchopwn had returned to being unpleasant to other members.
Ordinarily one more warning would result in a permanent ban, but in this case we have elected to make it three months.
We do not like removing members with lengthy and interesting post histories, but this is a discussion board, not a sparring club, and his tone has often been mean-tempered--usually towards those with religious beliefs.
To be clear, all religions and faiths are fair game for criticism, but we will not have fellow members hectored and belittled.
If Alchopwn wishes to return, the door will re-open on 6/8/19.
Analogue Boy's account has been restored to normal and we hope he comes back to use it.And has been 'sin-binned' for 72hrs while we deal with the matter.
Fingers crossed some agreement can be reached.
Alchopwn LIKES this post.The next person to introduce the subject of Greta Thunberg on a thread that has nothing to do with environmentalism will receive an immediate warning.
Alchopwn receives a GREEN WARNING (expires in three months).
