The Nietzschesplanatory Filter at work:
Your a coward, a bully, and a hypocrite, Barry. Iíve made a reasonable point, and despite all your blustering about the value of dialog and discussion, you canít handle it.
And Iím saving this for posterity Ė delete and ban away.
And honestly, why would anyone who doesnít agree with you want to bother posting here? Itís like a junior high chat room, not a place for adults.
And last, how can you guys go on and on about objective morals, and yet fail so badly to be upright. Donít you see the faintest bit of irony and hypocrisy in failing to apply the Golden Rule, and in treating those who come here as if they, and their opinions, despite your disagreement, had some inherent dignity, and were not someone and something to reject because you did like them?
Oops Ė last line should be ďnot someone and something to reject because you did not like them?
"And honestly, why would anyone who doesnít agree with you want to bother posting here? Itís like a junior high chat room, not a place for adults."
Agreed, Hazel. I will not abide such clumsy,hamfisted attempts to supress discussion. Ban away, Barry, you arrogant hypocrite.
Irony quote from the OP, from Barry:
ďFor Nietzsche, ďgoodĒ does not mean adherence to a moral standard. Instead, it is more or less a synonym for ďstrong.Ē
Seems like Barry likes playing the little Nietzsche here Ė no standards, just power.
The ability to comment is not the only thing that is closed at UD.
Barry Arrington: †
|UDís moderation policy is fairly simple: As a general rule, so long as your comment is not defamatory profane, or a vicious personal attack, you can say pretty much what you want. We have no interest in censoring viewpoints, because we believe ID is true and consequently in any full and fair debate we will win ó and if we donít win we either need to learn to debate better or change our position. Donít get me wrong. Iím not opening this site up to nasty juvenile name-calling fests like one see so often at Pandaís Thumb. †But if you keep your comments restricted to ideas and not attacking people, you should have no problems passing muster here.|
