I was granted the golden mop to this forum on November 6, 2007. As a comparison, we've banned two commenters since then.

Here's an updated score card since then:

AtBC - 2:

VMartin

David Mabus



Uncommon Descent - 35 (that we know of):

temminicki2

Stanton Rockwell

GLarson24

Solon

Lazarus

cdesignproponentsists

digdug24 and Bugsy

Getawitness

SallyT

ellazim

Carl Sachs and Tedsenough

dcost

Xcdesignproponentsists

undesigned

Shoghi

Q

DRat07

aaron

Semprini

Cloud of Unknowing (AKA Turncoat, AKA Tom English)

Thom English (again)

larrynomanfan

Leo Stotch and even his ghost, for good measure.

Dog_of_War

Uthan

Andrea

Gerry Rzeppa

psychodelict

Jonathan Sarfati

dreamwalker007

freemind

Leo

Cue

I maybe don't count as banned - It was just that since none of my short comments posted over a couple of years ever showd up, I began posting little pieces of dreck to see if I could wake them up, and after quite some time I finally got my hearts desire fulfilled: instead of "If you are not Dizzy ...", I got "You need to be logged in to comment"

Well it looks like Stephen Matheson has got his wish and got banned from here. While he seemed to be going out of his way to be negative, he did raise some interesting questions that would have been nice to debate with him.

Ah, but, SETI isn't trying to revise any basic principles; it's operating withint the currently accepted basic principles.

Maya means "illusion," so we missed Maya's bannification when it occurred:

If Maya is banned then that is unfortunate. It would be better to take all her objections and discuss them with her as opposed to letting her leave a series of one liners and then being banned.

At the height of my UD street cred, Sal actually put my name in the headline of one of his posts on why YECs don't always like ID. But I fell from grace swiftly after that, and finally got the boot from DS for these comments.

Your banning was duly recorded upthread here. Search for DvK.

Bob,

I am sorry to say this may have been my fault as I was thinking of repeating my suggestion of a boycott of UD to highlght the dearth of new ideas by the remaining pro ID clique.

It seems I am to get my wish courtesy of UD moderators.

Given the heavy handed moderation policy over at Uncommon Descent, perhaps we should start calling her Journalissimo?

Not neccessarily.  In the UK & Canada at non-collegiate Universities, the Dean is the head of a faculty or group of departments.  

So while it is unlikely that a University would have a Dean of English, as English is usually just a department, it's not impossible.

I can't recommend her services though, she spent a lot of time trying to prove that the "log jam" was designed and didn't 'just happen'

Sparc,

You were warned about using KFs name and even apologized for it so I know you read the warning. And this right after I decided you were trustworthy enough to remove from the moderation list.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Adios.

Fool me three times, shame on, well, me again. Fool me four times...

Yes indeed.

Farewell, Bililiad, we hardly knew ye...

ETA:-

At the start it was easy. Beginning my first UD comment with "DaveScot as always you are absolutely right" got me out of moderation and into straight-posting before I could say "Jack Robinson". For a while, I took things fairly easy. Sure, my comments were dumb, some immensely so, but Intelligent Design Creationism is a big tent, and at the start no-one seemed to notice just one more slightly unhinged visitor to UD. Eventually though, as so often in life, I got just too smart for my own good. No-one, surely, could be that enthusiastic about Denyse O'Leary's senseless wittering. As with all good things, my sock-puppetry came to an end. After six months of occasional posting, DaveScot's genius-level IQ spluttered into action. With a firm thump to the side, his nixplanatory filter managed a rare true-positive. Credit where credit is due, Dave played his cards with good humour...

I feel somewhat ambivalent about all the puppetry, because it actually makes the banninations appear somewhat reasonable.

This was more fun when mostly earnest posters were being discarded left and right.
