It appears Casey Luskin is not happy about his picture being posted on the internet and has been rattling his lawyer sword at those who realize he is a public figure.

We should have a "Is Anyone Dumber Than Casey Luskin Day" where everyone who owns a blog does a story using their favorite (dumbest) Luskin quote ever and of course post his picture.   Maybe whoever receives the most interesting threat from Luskin wins a prize or something.


Wouldn't it always come down to Casey vs Denyse?

There seems to be some confusion about whether Luskin is an attack mouse, gerbil, rat, or clockwork powered plush toy.  What do you think is the best description, along the lines of "The DI's fearsome attack gerbil".

Oh, that is just hilarious, Elsberry.  

". . And here’s the weakness of the entire Atheist Darwinist movement on display. Argument via ridicule only takes you so far, and only keeps the already converted indocrination entertained."

Picking at a typo, huh?  That's as nasty as quote mining.

Let it be known that Darwin once said:
   
Quote
I beat a puppy, I believe, simply from enjoying the sense of power.


Grow up.

FTK,

Honing up those quote-mining skills???

Full context of Darwins Puppy Beating Days:

Quote
"Once as a very little boy whilst at the day school, or before
that time, I acted cruelly, for I beat a puppy, I believe, simply
from enjoying the sense of power; but the beating could not have
been severe, for the puppy did not howl, of which I feel sure, as
the spot was near the house.  This act lay heavily on my
conscience, as is shown by my remembering the exact spot where
the crime was committed.  It probably lay all the heavier from my
love of dogs being then, and for a long time afterwards, a
passion.  Dogs seemed to know this, for I was an adept in robbing
their love from their masters."



FTK, you really are pathetic.

Why concentrate on photos when you can see Casey in full video.

Is it just me, or is the height difference reminiscent of Gandalf and Frodo?

Yeah, but he acts like an orc, and speaks like Grima Wormtongue.

Okay, so you all know how I wrote a post on Casey being a miserable loser with no life that just plays on the internet all day?

Miserable loser has a new hobby: screwing around with ERV on Google.

The past week:
1. I write a post making fun of Casey for being a loser
2. ERV disappears from Google
3. I reregister with Google-- everything is back to normal
4. ERV disappears from Google
5. ERV reappears with new descriptions:
Quote
The ERV blogs page is all about attacking me personally-otherwise theres no substance to any of it other than trying to mock me and attack me.

lower on the page, ERV description is links to the sites Casey is obsessed with (see his hit-job letter)
6. I 'claim' ERV with Googles webmaster tools, reregister ERV with the proper description.  He shouldnt be able to change anything again.  Sent a nice letter to Google to inform them someone was maliciously altering Google searches for sites they do not own/operate.  Asked them how to protect my site and for any information on who was altering my site.

*shrug*

Sums up Casey perfectly: Annoying.

If you visit the DI blog Evolution News & Views, you'll be stunned to find the ResearchBlogging.Org icon displayed prominently on the front page.  You see, Casey now blogs on peer-reviewed research.  Except that he doesn't.  

Casey's post is about a posthumous essay by Leslie Orgel that was printed in PLoS Biology.  Orgel's article is an opinion piece, not a peer-reviewed research paper.  Which means that Luskin is simply using the ResearchBlogging.Org icon to look legit. Nice try, Casey!



Folks at ResearchBlogging.Org are aware of this situation.  Stay tuned for further developments.

From Dave Munger's post at bpr3:
Quote
I should point out that Evolution News & Views has not registered with ResearchBlogging.org and has made a copy of the icon and placed it on its own server. Since we own the copyright on the icon itself, in principle we have the authority to ask them to stop using the icon because we only give permission to use the icon to blogs following our guidelines.

Do I detect the merest trace of irony here?

Anyone who wants to use the icon is welcome to. All you need to do is make sure that your post meets the guidelines for the project, register at the ResearchBlogging.org website, and follow the simple instructions that are provided. Casey did all but three of those things.

Casey Luskin's post surely qualifies to be labbeled as

Could somebody please provide an appropriate icon?

That's just a prototype... I'm going to do another one without the coffee cup stain and a big red "FAIL" instead of the "X". I'll probably end up going with the "X", since it's a nice counterpart to BPR3's green check mark.

Update on the status of our application with ResearchBlogging.org

Here are the facts of this situation:
(1) On Feb. 3, I posted this blog post. A co-worker had recommended that I include a graphic that said this was discussing peer-reviewed research. At the time, I was unaware of ResearchBlogging.org and the fact that they requested registration in order to use their graphic. Important note: It should be clear that when I first posted my post, I had not yet seen ResearchBlogging.org and was unaware of how it worked.

(2) On Feb. 4, I became aware of the fact that ResearchBlogging.org requested registration to use their graphic, and I immediately attempted to register--twice. Both times when I tried to register, when I submitted the request, I was directed to a page that looked something like garbled code, so it wasn't clear to me if the registration process was working properly. I then submitted an inquiry to ResearchBlogging.org wondering if they could correct the problem. I asked them for guidance, requesting direction for how I should proceed.

(3) On Feb. 5, I received a response from ResearchBlogging.org that, among other things, directed me to a discussion page which stated that the graphic I originally used was copyrighted by them. At the time that I posted this post, I was not aware that the graphic I had used was owned by ResearchBlogging.org. ResearchBlogging.org did not request that I remove their graphic, and in fact their rules are ambiguous, and they do not say that the graphic I used cannot be used while one is seeking an application with Researchblogging.org. Nevertheless, I never had any intention of violating anyone's copyright, and so I removed their graphic from this page and the EvolutionNews.org server at my own choice.

(4) In the response from ResearchBlogging.org, they also told me that, (a) they did receive my registration requests, (b) registration requests were granted at their discretion, and © a discussion thread was taking place about whether I should be granted registration. I was told that, "At present, after 26 comments, the consensus appears to be that your post is in violation of our guidelines. If you believe your post does meet our guidelines, I would encourage you to post your explanation in the discussion there." The conclusion was therefore: "We can't approve your registration at this time because your post does not appear to follow our guidelines, but if you can show us either that your post does now follow the guidelines, or if you can append the post itself so that it follows the guidelines, then we'll proceed with approving your registration."

(5) I then went to the discussion thread and replied back to the users ResearchBlogging.org as follows: (I am in the process of composing this response right now).


What an ass

So he was "unaware" of ResearchBlogging.org but is happy to steal the logo in question and add it to his post?

Why, Casey, why? If you wanted a logo then you could have created your own!

I can't wait to read his "response", especially his justification for the "no comment" policy on the post in question (and all others!)

I guess his response will appear here at some point.

The official purpose of this website is NOT to create a narcissistic URL with my name. Quite frankly I could care less if there is a "caseyluskin.com" out there. The purpose is to have some measure of quality control over the first hit people see on internet search engines if they have the odd desire to search for my name.

Of course, nothing says quality control like having a superfluous dot after your URL ("caseyluskin.com."), or a top-notch graphic like this:

Ouch.
