“[Peter Irons] forwards to me their response confirming that I am indeed an execrable character”

But John Lilley doesn’t describe you as, nor even imply you to be, “an execrable character”. Perhaps this description is in other e-mails not yet published here. Or will soon be revealed to us in the form of an animated cartoon replete with farting noises.

..and then it was gone.

I don’t know about the others here but it seems obvious to me that our timothee is a young naive and pretentious student. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Agreed. He’s gone. He can enlighten anyone interested from his own blog instead of further polluting ours.

I am not sure this one counts... he had one strike against him, as he writes his blog in French, and I am sure that DaveScot still eats Freedom Fries™ rather than French Fries with his cheesburgers.

An old banning that was missed in my original compilation because the entire thread in which it appeared was subsequently deleted. Albatrossity2 found it in the facile record back on 9/21, but I didn't happen to see his post until today. The thread itself is a true classic.

“Teaching the controversy” is about the scientific dissent from Darwinism which is separate from ID.

Have they ever banned more than two people in a single day?  What's the UD record for banning people in one day so far?

All this wholesale banning has got me thinking about getting a new UD account.

Zachriel demonstrates inference to the best explanation at its most effective. Here we infer that temmenicki2 posted on UD, but was made to disappear. "Silent but deadly" refers to more than one UD phenomenon:

Speaking of survival of the fittest, I wonder how “fit” temmenicki2’s comment will be judged? ((I suspect that that least natural of “selecters”, a certain davescot, will soon swoop in and notify us that both temmenicki2, and his memetic offspring are no longer with us.))

temmenicki2, it is indeed possible that Denyse does not understand evolution, but I’d like to suggest that you simply don’t understand Denyse.

You gave yourself away “whatever that means.”

so temminicki….how well do you understand ID?

you said: “survival of the fittest simply means that those critters that make more babies have a better chance of getting their genes into the next generation.”

johnson rightly pointed out in darwin on trial that this is merely a tautology. whoever survives ….survives. whoever survives also is able to bring their genes to the next generation. wow….that is brilliant! thanks for the deep insights into evolution. it is truly a complex theory eh?

If it were made into an updating .gif (like the SitPS headlines one in JanieBelle's sidebar), I bet it would find its way onto quite a few blogs.

Hermagoras has done valuable fieldwork, and made an astounding discovery:

Yo yo yo peeps!  Nixplanatory filter in da House!

Remember that horrid little thread by Galapagos Finch?  The one with the cheese grater toilet paper?  The one where getawitness continued his crusade to get an explanation on the EV paper?  And maybe was getting somewhere?

The whole thread is gone: 404 For Yourself

There can be only one explanation. The Nixplanatory Filter has mutated and evolved. We've witnessed the emergence of a new function for the Nixplanatory filter. Exapted from its previous function - blanking inconveniently truthful commenters - it has acquired a new function: obliviating entire threads. This may only occur when those threads explicitly embarrass the lead smathematiciannakeoilsalesman - but that remains to be seen.

This is a rare and exciting moment in Rescienceligion. Hats off to Hermagoras.

In the bizarre World of WADcraft, virtual persons emerge from the quantum vacuum, live, speak the truth, then fall back into the nothingness from which they came. But the Nixplanatory Filter can't distinguish between that which is and that which might be, and therefore spasms and flails reflexively. Such phantom banninations of virtual persons will henceforth be recorded here, with this solemn incantation:

The Nixplanatory Filter continues to evolve, acquiring new modes of functioning. Gone is the loudspeaker in ceiling, and MIA is DaveTard and his arrogant declamations. New to WOW is the art of obliviation, whereby comments and even entire threads are dispatched to oblivion by The Ministry of Truth.

A particularly entertaining example (by way of cross-post) of a post being quietly shorn of commentary:
