    It's your job to refresh your memory with the facts, not mine.

    If you want to dig up ancient history, use the "search" function and look for yourself. Or (easier), just look up spuriousmonkey's profile and read his last posts.

    I'm going with extraordinary assertions require extraordinary evidence. You think he should make a public apology for "his appalling behaviour". Do enlighten us as to this behaviour which was not considered appalling enough to be banworthy until HE requested a ban but necessitates an apology to unban him.

    I am very curious what kind of behaviour entails such novel restrictions

    Yes I remember that. I thought it was a pity that Ron(perplexity), implanck, ToR and satyr were not given a chance - all of them were superlative posters in their chosen fields of interest. John [IAC] I think they did a favour, he received very shabby treatment from the posters and was gracious inspite of very poor treatment. I was not surprised that the monkey was put aside because of the Ego of the Person Involved. There is a tendency in sci to put aside legitimate posters who post really thought provoking stuff by putting them into pigeonholes based on their personalities while dismissing their contributions. Its the exact reverse of how science actually works.

    Thanks.

    If you note, almost all of those posters were banned after prolonged pissing contests which had nothing to do with their better posts but due to trolling and baiting them on personal issues or by labelling them as "mental cases" or misogynists or kooks - many were hounded into bans. I had many discussions with Ron on Buddhism, Satyr/Wanderer on his perspectives of the de-masculinisation of society, ToR on her various issues and I never encountered any problems even though, most of the time I was in direct opposition to their views and very forthright in my opposition.

    ron WAS given a chance.
    they ( ron and his wife ) ran amok with vandalizing sciwiki.
    another instance was when he started crying about someone "stealing" his avatar.
    remember "red army dictat"? well we did the same thing to ron which made him furious.
    it was hilarious.

    oh yeah, let's not forget water.

    Yeah very funny. They were basically hounded by certain members and mods looked the other way - this is not special to sci, its basically how social conformity is enforced everywhere, so I won't go into those bans.

    I am only interested in the monkeys because three years of holding a grudge over someone like spurious is just too childish for words - his contributions far outweigh one hissy fit over mod issues where HE asked for a ban. There is a lack of graciousness in these forums which comes from an inability to move past personal issues and appreciate people for who they are rather than who we think they should be.

    I don't like people being considered disposable simply because of unrealistic expectations being held against them.

    i don't know about kantaleter but ron got what he deserved.
    his situation went way over the top in regards to . .ah, shall we say a certain ex member.
    and that's basically what it was over, moderation issues.

    I've addressed you before. I corrected your reply to some logic problem like a week ago. We've had a few boring unmemorable interchanges over the years.

    It's just that, as clearly stated above, I find your persona on this website dull and cringe worthy. I tend to avoid more cringe worthy moments by replying to. In fact, I am cringing right now.
    I wish you had not dragged your lameness into this thread, which was meant to be used to remember good times with friends that are not here anymore.
    And now that you left a huge steaming turd on the thread, you are threatening to close it. YOU incited all the flaming that happened here. If you had stayed the fuck out, but you just can't stand any dissent, can you. Fucking typical.


    What the fuck are you talking about. You know what's juvenile? Making up shit like this to demean people who are not around to stand up for themselves.

    Anyone can go back a couple of years through the threads and find more wittiness in a short exchange between these guys than you have been able to put in tens of thousands of words since then. You suck and you are in denial about it.

    oh poh poh you little kids...

    Give me a fucking break james.
    To you, amusement is childish. To have fun is to act like a kid.
    No wonder you are so BORING.

    Funny, sometimes it feels like it's all I ever talk about. Maybe you haven't been paying attention? Or maybe because I don't use the magic word "spurious", which you probably search for regularly, I go unnoticed.

    Well, duh. Earth to james, IT SUCKS HERE. Thanks a lot.

    Does it matter? As long as they sound like they're 60, they can stay and play.

    Let's just spare all the effort required here by saying that you don't know the first fucking thing about me, so pondering on what I do or should be doing is entirely futile.

    Not an ounce of anger. I'd have to care. I hope you don't mind me not giving a shit about you or your posts. Because if you do mind... hell, I don't give a shit anyway.

    Nobody is forcing me to read your posts and I don't. I skip all your posts. They bore me to death so I skip them. Now when you come piss on my thread, I ought to say something, don't you think? I ought to say fuck off, at least. Fuck off. Nobody is forcing you to read this either, and yet you're here stirring shit up and trying to get the thread locked. They should ban you for a day over this.

    Is this the ever helpful patronizing mod? Once again, what the fuck do you know?
    Why do I come here? Certainly not to learn. Not for insight either. Smart discussion? HERE? lol

    Maybe I come here to disagree. Somebody has to

    In any case. None of your fucking business etc.

    YOU SAID PISSING REPORTED

    I think I was specific enough. I think you suck because you make huge uninteresting posts that make me cringe, ban people I like, and generally move sciforums into becoming a major snorefest. You guys have mods closing down discussions and banning people because they feel like it. Then when someone complains you go "point noted" and lock that too.
    You're the fucking china of the internet. You suck.

    Now stick to your own fucking principles and delete all of your own posts in this thread. They are insulting and inflammatory and are the reason the thread went downhill. Also ban yourself for a day and promise not to do it again, or you'll be banned for 3 days next time.

    give it another shot, james
    spurious can directly apologize to sciforums for the vandalism and whatnot here in this thread or by pm

    his forum and what happens there is of no concern to sci

    do it, james
    lot of water under the bridge and you can easily afford to be magnanimous
    the community seems to have a peculiar affection for this fellow so......

    Better examples

    see sniffy and Varda being baited in this thread. Now look at their posting history and consider how irrelevant and unnecessary all the baiting here has been.
