    Does it seem that some Members appear to have been allowed Free Rein to Troll SciForums?

    " What is a troll?
    The term "troll" can have a double meaning, related to fishing and ugly monsters. Both are appropriate.
    "Troll," in the context of message boards and the like, describes somebody who is posting just to be confrontational or to raise hackles. One example might be a teenager who finds a Jewish message board and posts, "The Holocaust never happened." The teen may not know or care one way or the other–he just wants a reaction. He wants to piss people off. He is a troll."

    Does anyone notice that as of late, one of SciForums most Prolific Posting Puerile Trolls seems to have been acquiring accolytes and running rampant across all the Fora...as if exercising Free Rein to Troll SciForums?

    Both you and dmoe have been officially labeled as trolls, and rightly so.

    While I have had my disagreements with admins and mods, I have not been labeled a troll.

    That coming from an officially labeled troll is rather funny.

    Your ideas lack comprehension, evidence, reputable research data, sensibility, and on most all occasions are strung together word salad like, achieving nothing other then having you banned from the sciences.
    When you wake up to that fact, will be a day to go down in history.

    Whether a popular stance or not, SciFo has historically and presently leaned more toward the "free speech" side of the playing field.

    Paraphrasing the words of one Mod from a while back: "We really like to think that adults should be able to self-regulate as much as possible."

    IOW, they try not to step in every time one crawls out from under their bridge. That would be a full time job. And mods are volunteers.



    nota bene: A troll is not merely someone you don't like, or someone with dumb ideas - or even someone who posts lots of dumb ideas. The crux of trolling is captured in the OP's definition: "...posting just to be confrontational or to raise hackles."

    I know 100% that what I say about your nonsense is true.....and more importantly, so do other members and the mods, and why so many have you on ignore.

    I don't like to bash for the sake of bashing, but really now...

    You have a habit of speaking about things you know nothing about.
    This is because you haven't taken the time to educate yourself on the things you talk about.

    Science makes your thinking not only invalid, but lacking in many cases, any reason whatsoever.

    Let's be clear: Sciforums has, historically, leaned more toward supremacism.

    People should not pretend it's about free speech. I would have thought you figured that out, already.
