I've been remiss in updating UD's moderation rules. To previous lists add the following:

Don't, well. Wait. Gimme a minute to get this straight.

Don't suggest that Dembski and Wells lack the skills necessary to...


Don't you dare on Dembski's blog, that doesn't work.

Don't state that Dembski and Wells need additional education, training and experience in...wait. I'll get it. Wait.

Well, don't do this:

You wrote as if you didnít know what the book says, and then criticized what the authors said as needing more schooling for clarity and brevity. This is, of course, impossible. You cannot criticize unless you know what youíre criticizing, or else it is not actually critical. I donít know what you know or donít know about any book at all, but this train of argument is incoherent and quite frankly rude, and my comment back to you, stating you needed more schooling was simply an illustration of that incivility, so you can see the error of employing it here. Thatís why youíre now in moderation.

Got that? That's why.
