I tried to place the following comment in the Dembski whine thread (about people finding out that he's giving 20% credit in classes to students who troll "enemy" websites).
It refers to the Barret Brown thread:
|This post used to be up at comment 104 of the barrett brown thread: |
"Gee, Clive, I realize of course, that you’re merely being mildly provocative — however transparently — but thanks for reassuring me about my concerns regarding impartial moderation and people acting as foils.
I realize that a one-on-one thread devoted ONLY to StephenB and me debating strikes you as an invalid reason to want a change of venues, but given recent events, I’d again beg to differ.
I also notice that StephenB hardly even responded to my criticisms except to ask me a question about who I was referring to in my post.
Yeah, that’s impressive.
So, yes, I will go back to that “sight” that should not exist, Clive. Where Alexa stats outshine other “sights.”
P.S. It’s very clear to any unbiased observer why some people here never appear on any forum other than Uncommon Descent. Thanks for your hospitality while it lasted, Clive!"
It was removed for what reason? Certainly not utter incivility. There's fossilized remnants of the post in KairosFocus' post at 116 in that same thread. But there's no censorship here.
Anyway, it's clear I'm on super-secret mod-ban, but I'm too busy doing some home renovation crap to care.
As I see it (and due to looking at recent Uncommon Descent Alexa stats) ....the ONLY reason that Clive, baby is putting on this pretense of "openness" and the ONLY reason that Behe was invited to have a "UD Blag" = because the UD site hits are below even the ratings of some pretty obscure evo/science-based sites as well as relatively modest freethought, atheist, agnostic, or skeptic sites.
They're barely treading water at UD.
