Syne has no credibility. This is one of the many problems with promoting Syne in the first place. In a more professional, structured environment, Syne's abhorrent beliefs would allow him to do his job as effectively as the natural hypocrisy of an anti-gay bigot telling others how to post would allow. Unfortunately, here at sciforums, he has to deal not only with a membership who knows he has no business telling anyone else how to behave, but he also has to deal with the fact that he has no friends within the moderator community, which renders him virtually ineffective. I'd still like to see him Cesspool this thread, though. He isn't because he doesn't want to ruffle feathers, which is not acceptable.
