Salvador, after deleting a post by 'zapatero':
I was a little annoyed since I asked you to wait till I got back to this thread. You kept right on posting before I came back. Remember, youíre here at our invitation.
In any case, I do apologize to you for the rough treatment.
Now, letís do this in pieces, I donít want long responses where you fill up your posts with so many falsehoods and where Iíll have to spend 10 pages cleaning them up. In otherwords I donít want you to do a Gish Gallop. If you do that, automatic delection. Ok?
Your questions might be valuable to the readers, but if sense you going into a Chewbacca Defense of Avida or doing a Gish Gallop are argumentum ad nauseam, Iím sorry your questions and objections will just be deleted.
So for starters, state your objection again about the fact that the host computer running the simulation effectively models a replication process. And then Iíll respond. Keep your assertion about the length of this comment please.
Finally if I pose a question to you, and you donít ignore it, I will delete any subesequent participation on this thread until you answer. Got it? Your here at my invitation, remember that.
In any case, Iím sorry my treat of you was a little bruskÖ

I can't honestly post my reaction here, or I'd never have the moral cred to moderate harsh and abusive language again.
It reminds me of this jerk named Den Beste who wrote a whole page of rules about how to write him emails. (Like Salvador, Den Beste was a terrible writer, but for different reasons. He would just go on, and on, and on, every thought he ever had on the topic. He couldn't write 'have a nice day' in under 400 words. Now that I think about it, there's another parallel with Cordova: Den Beste is one of those (minority of) engineers who think they know everything and are brilliant analysts. In Den Beste's case, he became an avid supporter of the Iraq war and still maintains that it was a good thing, which is kind of like thinking, at this point, that ID is a revolutionary science with lots of potential. )

He must have meant "and you ignore it", because as written, it makes no sense.
