Since I saw this recently mentioned someplace on TT, I wish to clarify that I stepped in with the anon9 name when it appeared that JackT was banned, like myself and keiths, for expressing opposing viewpoints (though a pretext was used in place of this fact). And indeed JackT was later banned, under a new pretext.
When someone like Guts/Nelson becomes unhinged and starts banning folks for unreasonable reasons, I think we have a duty to say something. His unethical, deranged behavior is shown unequivocally in this thread. Nelson does have a right to ban without reason, but participants also have a right to know what they are getting into. In particular they should be aware that TT's own policies are not followed.
It is interesting to see the spin on the clear-cut evidence given in this thread. It appears to only consist of my posting under anon9, which I did just once. But again, this was only to shed light on Nelson's behavior. Even if we accept that my using a second name was underhanded, nonetheless it happened long after keiths and I were banned. So it's completely irrelevant to the issue. (Yet I still attest that if a con-man like Nelson complains about being exposed, then too bad--stop being a con-man, then. But that's just my opinion.)
And we hear not a single peep out of the IDist regulars at TT about Nelson's conduct shown here. I mean, this thread is self-explanatory, both in the email exchange posted at the beginning and in Nelson's subsequent eruption. Not one word from them about it. (Heddle called Nelson on it, but Heddle (from what I can tell) is not quite an ID advocate in the TT sense.)
On a lighter note, this thread now appears on the first page of a Google search for Nelson Alonso. How embarrassing for him. On which I say: Yeessss, yeessss. Ooooh let me taste your tears, Nelson! Mmmm, your tears are so yummy and sweet! Ooooh the tears of unfathomable sadness! Mmmm yummy! Yummy, you guys!
