BGOG is no longer with us. UD’s moderation policy is amended as follows: “Comments that do not attempt to add to a discussion but instead condemn the entire discussion (examples: “You post on this subject too often” or “What does this have to do with science”) will be deleted, and the commenter is subject to being placed in the moderation queue or banned.

Editors: The thrust of this comment: “People who disagree with me are the type of people who fly airplanes into buildings.” The comment and the commenter have been deleted from this site.

Remarketh didymos:

Irony being, the thrust of Barry's whole post is "People who disagree with me are the type of people who rape kids/sample the choice flesh of 13-year olds."

And of course, there's his other post, the thrust of which is "People who disagree with me are the type of people who go to school and murder their classmates and teachers."

It is worth recalling BarryA's announcement of UD's "new" moderation policy:
   
Quote
UD’s 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 — and if we don’t win we either need to learn to debate better or change our position. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not opening this site up to nasty juvenile name-calling fests like one see so often at Panda’s Thumb.  But if you keep your comments restricted to ideas and not attacking people, you should have no problems passing muster here...

...Our readers will then be in a position to see: (1) that UD, unlike the Darwinists, doesn’t ban or censor ideas; and (2) that theism in general and Christianity in particular is quite capable of defending itself against lies, distortions, illogical arguments, and misunderstandings. Our role is not to censor ideas but to provide a forum where hard questions can be discussed calmly, fully, and fairly, and we trust that when that happens truth will prevail.

Peh.

That's pretty much what I remember too.  I tried to rescue it from Google's cache, along with Seversky's, but the cached version stopped just shy of there.  Neither of them stood out as the sort of thing that's typically banworthy.  Then again, it is UD...

The time tag of olin's offending post is left dangling, like the cheshire cat's smile.

Voice Coil tells me that has been silently banned from the Odds that End thread, after a brief period on moderation. As a public service, he has provided a version of his last post. As easily seen, it is clearly in violation of UD's moderation policy:*
         
Quote
When the sun goes down the fact remains that StephenB in 332, and again in 346, allows that certain quantum events may be uncaused.

Because the "law of causality" is silent, the only remaining source of adjudication regarding the causality/acausality of those phenomena is the science. And it so happens that the science asserts with both sound theoretical and ample empirical justification that the phenomena in question are in fact acausal.

Biped claims that StephenB's admission is a peripheral issue. But I think it central. It is an admission that there are facets of causation that ONLY the theoretical and empirical tools of science can affix, facets on which the "law of causality" is silent. Moreover we have what amounts to an admission (by omission) that other claims regarding the reach of the "law of causality" within the quantum domain (e.g. to particle decay) are made with no rationale whatsoever.

Biped likes battle metaphors, but others are more appropriate. For example, we need only find one hole in a bucket to know that it doesn't hold water. What the above establishes beyond dispute is that the premodern "law of causality" is poorly equipped to contain quantum phenomena.

With the declaration that "everything that begins to exist must have a cause," the law again comes into contact with quantum phenomena that arguably indicate otherwise. We know from the examples above that, with respect to quantum phenomena, the "law of causality" at times fails to hold water and at others is applied in an arbitrary and ad hoc manner. We also have the precedent that it is the science that must ultimately adjudicate these questions. I'll go with the science.


* Don't elicit StephenB's idiocy. To avoid that, don't interact with StephenB.

The above deserves a correction: my comment failed to appear at all for about 12 hours, then appeared with a moderation message attached (indicating that only I could see it) for about another 12. By then I had tested my assumption that I was banned by attempting to post again, so two versions of the post languished in moderation all day. They were at last permitted to appear.

Of course, VC's comments should never have entered moderation in the first place, and should not be there now.

Is waterbear no longer with us, or is that his own comment? Interesting if Barry banninated him, then wrote a talking to the empty chair comment on the WWND thread.

It's official! Before, comments would show as awaiting moderation. But after the latest round of deletions, new comments just disappear into the ozone.

Silent Bannination! Among the offending posts was one about mammary glands.  



The real reason might be because there was some interest in the question of the nested hierarchy, and how we can recognize this pattern in biology. The Tard Bosses had to stop it before the meme spread amongst the Tard Minions. There can be no resolution of this fundamental issue, because ID absolutely depends on equivocation.

Interestingly, there are a number of questions being addressed to Zachriel, but Zachriel doesn't reply! ID wins again!
