    true it is against the rules, but SAM has grown to become the epitome of Sciforums, the cream puffs, the prime of the discussions...so in essence rules do not apply anymore, she became THE SCIFORUMS.

    Well, no offense, but they should get it over with if that's where it's headed.

    No offense, Enmos...but are you by any chance saying they should hurry up and ban SAM?

    Let me recap:

    Pretty self explanatory, don't you think?

    Oh, you have been "unfailingly consistent". The problem arises in that being so "unfailingly consistent", you have portrayed yourself as just a big of a bigot (be it towards Jews, atheists, and even Buddhists).

    The worst part in all of this is watching people trying to cover for you. I can almost hear the nervous giggle from here and the slight hand ringing.. the whole 'zomg, it's getting out of control'.

    But your sword is dull Sam. You best sharpen it if you are going to martyr yourself on it.

    If that's their intention, yes.
    If that's not their intention they should stop harassing her.

    Perhaps thats a matter of perspective, but I see all the "out of control" indicators on the other side. So much so that they are not even bothering with accuracy in their alleged complaints anymore. Its like being at a republican convention hearing allegations of liberal bias without any basis.

    just as Bells and Tiassa are...they are just moderators. James R overrules their decisions, he is an admin.

    So trigger happy Bells better cool off her steamy butt.

    I'm sorry, what?

    We're harassing her?

    Pray tell, how? By responding in the threads she starts or in threads started by others?

    Righteo. Yes, I can see how that amounts to moderator harassment.

    If we shut down the threads, and believe me, most have been shut and cesspooled, we are accused of trying to silence her or hide something or other. If we respond, we're harassing her. If we ignore her, then she accuses us of ignoring the 'issues' and not dealing with it. If we ban her, then we have silenced her. So pray tell. Just what do you think we should do?

    The difference between theory and practice

    Nope. My faith in your perception of bigotry is diminished by this controversy. While what you say is pretty self-explanatory, the effect or result—what it means in practice—is still a mystery.

    You know, Bells, better than the general membership, how long I've been pushing on the issue of our coddling of bigots. I'm very disappointed that we have waited to act on it until we could contrive a pretense to hang this on S.A.M.

    The problem should have been handled a long time ago. But it wasn't.

    You and Tiassa are calling for her banning, James says he doesn't want to ban her. You guys should make up your minds. The indecisiveness is what results in harassment.
    Why are you asking me whether or not she should be banned? Tell you what, make me a moderator and I tell you what I think.

    Why? Because I am categorising Sam in the same boat as the bigots we have seen in the past and present?

    Oh, I am not hanging this on Sam. I am asking Sam why she has decided to join them in her crusade. And so far, I haven't managed to get a response.

    I am asking an intelligent and thoughtful woman why and how she has lowered herself to their level to try to get her point across.

    I am not disagreeing with you. But it still does not answer the question as to why she has decided to act like they have done and do so today.

    As entertaining as this particular piece of sciforums drama has been I think its about time we all bloody well got over it.

    I don't really care one way or the other on this particular issue, but I do find it quite annoying that a large chunk of all other discussion grinds to a halt while everyone puts in their 2 cents here.

    Oh what the hell I'll put my 2 cents in as well:

    To SAM and SAM's supporters:
    Whatever it is your doing here, whether it be "using others methods against them" or "performance art" or whatever, in doing so you *may* have some slight chance of causing "them" to look at things in a new light and perhaps understand your point of view, and at the same time you are wilfully sinking to their level.
    You are choosing to purposely abandon what shred of the moral high ground you may have had left.
    You are in essence saying to this forum as a whole that intellectual discourse is unimportant so long as you can get back at them.
    Is that really what you want? I sure hope not.

    To SAM's critics and detractors:
    Yelling louder doesn't make you any more or less right.
    SAM behaving in a way that is not in keeping with your/our expectations of one engaging in intellectual discourse is not something that can be remedied with accusations of trolling/whatever.
    I'm not entirely sure what will but I think a healthy dose of STFU about SAM accompanied by SAM not making 10 threads a day about ze Jews/Israel/America/westerners would go a long way.

    Trolls are not "spirited posters" and your assessment of Sam is complete bs.

    Exactly, you admins and mods brought all this on yourself, T. You didn't handle the problem. Instead, you banned and badgered everyone else for "attacking" Sam.

    Blind fools, the lot of you.
