    I have no idea whether or not you are a Jew. Your ethnicity or religion are of no interest to me, nor are they relevant to this discussion. My post #74 aimed to do three things
    a) Suggest that if anyone has a Christ complex you do.
    b) Convey the idea with a twist of humour.
    c) Provide you with a snippet* of personal information to see how you would use it,

    * The juxtaposition of a discussion of cicrumcision with the word snippet is another example of humour. I'm not saying it's good humour, but it is humour. In contrast your post here, although it made me laugh, is not humour.

    His accusation is an especially clear example of something he does repeatedly. He seems to be trying very hard to be cast in the role of a scapegoat and to show that others are acting in concert and thus under the influence of Group Think. This, then, provides 'proof' of his 'theory'. I imagine if one wants to fix the data this is the best way. I have no comments to make about his motivation, but plenty of thoughts.

    Regardless of whether it is closed or not, you do keep reverting back to what happened in another forum, wholly unconnected to this particular forum.

    Perhaps you should have responded to Wynn by PM.


    *Shrugs*

    You asked a question and then proceeded to insult the staff and the members of this forum and then you went on to allude of some sort of conspiracy theory.
    I'm kind of busy deflecting insults on my evolution of religion thread.

    Which attitude is that? By responding to you politely in the face of your numerous insults to me personally?

    Then stop insulting and abusing people from that other site and stop constantly going on about whatever issues you had there. You see Futilist, when you posted here originally, it should have been a clean slate for you. Instead, you immediately started to insult and abuse staff and members and repeatedly kept linking to issues you had from other sites. If you genuinely want to be part of the community here, I would suggest you do not go out of your way to abuse, insult and be so rude to the people here and then keep referring them to other sites you have been banned from as examples of how you are supposedly a victim.

    If you also wish to be part of this community, it would behoove you to not start off going on about how you are conducting experiments and then attempting to goad people to respond to how you want them to respond for your experiment. It should also be noted that the greater majority of people do not like to be part of experiments without their explicit consent, which you have not sought from anyone on this site.

    Lastly, trying to play the victim by accusing others of anti-semitism when there was no anti-semitism is, frankly, kind of lame and a waste of our time.

    I would be more specific if I could actually understand the thread. However, that failure to comprehend breaks both ways; I'm not inclined to act on my instinct that this whole thread is a flame-bait setup.

    Two brief notes on thread content, though:

    • Wasn't TSF where we all fled to during the Great Sciforums Blackout of '05? Or am I remembering wrongly?

    • Medium rare is overcooked.​

    Aside from that, I really don't care who wronged who, or why, at another board. The only things apparent in this discussion are (A) that it is a clash of egos, and, (B) it was willfully invited.

    This is not a good method of introduction. It is not a good way to build friendly relationships. And in a community that has developed a low-key reputation for ferocious insanity, it does not impress.

    I would prefer that people stop entertaining this ego tantrum, so much so that I will make a curmudgeon of myself if they don't.

    Oh, and Futilist: Welcome to our humble bedlam. Be careful where you dig.

    I am seeking clarification. You wish me to remain silent when Futilitist tells another lie, or is deliberately provocative. I'm fine with that if that's what you want, but if it is then this statement applies:

    Futilitist any absence of response from me to your lies, insults, provocative behaviour, etc, from this point forward is not an admission they do not exist, it is an adherence to Tiassa's request.

    You make an excellent point; apparently, I hadn't thought through the implications. Easy enough to fix, though. Your note—

    —is on record, and I thank you for leaving it at that.

    And now, let us put this one to rest.
