Update:

Can't log in now as my password has mysteriously changed and I can't get a new one as my email doesn't exist in their database. I'm almost convinced someone would rather I stopped posting there

That's what happened to me 3 times (account deletion?) - reregister using the same credentials and mention it when you post again.

Update:

Same problem now from this location. I suspect IP addresses are being blacklisted

Barry returns from bible camp one day, and you get banned the next. Coincidence? I think not.

I have noticed the same thing. I can post from various Wi-Fi locations but I can't post from home, or any Wi-Fi location for more than a couple days. I guess in this way, Barry can swear on a stack of bibles that he has not banned anybody.

That sneaky little Barry.

I doubt this is other than deliberate. I tried re-registering and I get "email already in use" yet that email and my user name "does not exist in our database". I call that de facto banning.

It is pretty underhand. Barry must be desperate. What can he do? Let us barbarians in and the poor dears faint. Keep us out and the blog fades into complete insignificance. I'm actually a bit flattered. My effectiveness as a critic of ID must have improved. :)

I got deleted again. 30 seconds later I'm back, and highlighting what they did.

Enkidu (me)  has now been silently banned.  I'm still logged in but my posts just vanish as soon as I submit them, not even an "awaiting moderation" notice.  Tried from two different locations and a proxy, must be based on user ID.

It was an interesting experiment while it lasted.  Barry opened the window for some fresh air and the regular UD tards all pissed themselves.  Back to the old ways we go.  Very telling that Arringturd was such a coward he wouldn't even make our banning public.

BTW, in case people here don’t realize it, UD is back to banning people, they’re just doing so without announcing it.

For a while it was almost as free and open as an actual science blog. Oh well.

Yeah, my comments aren't appearing - I've been silently moderated.

I'm not surprised. Its a bloodbath over there. KeithS has peed in all their cornflakes and the butthurt is high.

I'm sure Barry thought they'd fare quite well. Hypothesis rejected.

This innocent bystander can only observe that Dembski not only has abandoned completely the blog he created, presumably proudly and with great expectations for "ID - the future", but except for some feeble attempt at reviving his brainchild CSI doesn't give a damn about the entire enterprise.

That's the way it looks from the boondocks (ID-wise) here.


Edit: Maybe the wrong thread, but...

I don't know whether this counts as a bannination of a commenter - Astroman - or just his comment, but when I saw this I thought I would copy it for, well, you know. Plus it's a laugh.

The scene: In the The Black Knight Taunt thread Astroman has just pushed bornagain77 into throwing up five long consecutive posts of his usual copypasta including quotes, youtube links, music-and-verse.

k said: “E: The test for ID is simple. Show on observation blind chance and/or mechanical necessity de novo creating functionally specific complex organisation and associated information. That is, falsify the design inference induction on FSCO/I as sign. As has been highlighted any number of times, including over the past few days. If you don’t know that, you do not know what you are talking about. If you do, but wanted to play rhetorical games, it is worse. KF”

As Learned Hand pointed out, it is NOT the responsibility of ID critics to test ID, and your drumbeat repetition of the same old rhetorical games, strawmen, red herrings, double standards, enabling, FIASCO garbage, pompous dictates, sanctimonious sermons, and slanderous, cowardly lies and false accusations laced with the oily, incendiary, poisonous stench of your narcissistic insanity are mighty Christian of you. FOR RECORD.

F/N: Pardon but you’re a loon.

P.S. Kindly do better.

P.P.S. Grace open eyes.

P.P.P.S. Bydand!

P.P.P.PS. END

And now - gone!

Edited: It's true enough about BA's comments above, but of course Astroman was responding to KF. I get the two mixed up all the time, probably because I seldom read either of them.

Up until now I have only been blocked based on IP address. Now my user name is also blocked, and any comments using a new user name are in moderation. All silently. Barry is such a pathetic snivelling coward.

We don't know it was Barry. I'm hoping not. Whoever it is should be brave enough to say who, when and why. Perhaps they like the proles to have the pretense of openness?

My money is on Gordon (KairosFocus) Mullings from Montserrat. I have also noticed that many of my previous comments have been deleted.

Damn. He even looks like Gordon. Not that anyone would know what KairosFocus looks like because he has never made it easy to identify who he is. Except for the link from his user name.

Barry Arringturd pontificates about how UD is so fair:

Quote
It never ceases to amaze me when I watch a bunch of dissenters comment about how dissenters are not allowed to comment.


Except for folks like Richardthughes, Thorton, Alan Fox, Enkidu, Acartia Bogart, and Astroman.  All knowledgeable ID critics who are not allowed to comment.

Besides that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?   :p

Gordon (KairosFocus) Mullings of Montserrat is now using racial discrimination as an excuse for Joe's offensive comments. Please try to make sense of his latest spew:
Quote
Adapa, Please, read carefully. I have never endorsed Joe in misbehaviour but have indicated he has had serious provocation which we should understand. Have you ever had someone accuse you to your boss to try to rob you unjustly of employment, or play at locking you out, or threaten you or family? Have you ever faced for instance racial discrimination and accusation — this is getting too close to that for any reasonable person to be comfortable; that’s like how Southern US soldiers in England during the ’40′s thought they could push West Indian soldiers and airmen around as they were used to doing with intimidated Southern Blacks back home — they learned a few very hard lessons. I don’t agree with what bullied or attacked West Indian soldiers did in retaliation, but I can understand that the black soldiers were provoked. It therefore seems to me that something is very wrong here with your response, wrong in a way that looks all too familiar with those who refused to see racial provocation. Please, think again. And yes, this situation is taking on the tone of too many ill-bred objectors to design thought imagining they have a right to be bullies and worse. Do you really want to enable those who are going down that kind of road? When I see signs of willingness to acknowledge grievous and even habitual wrongdoing by far too many objectors to design thought, or anything that reminds them of God, and to correct that wrong-doing, I will take concerns more seriously. Meanwhile, it should be quite clear to the reasonable onlooker that so soon as the troll vaults were opened there was a wave of abusive commentary at UD that has begun to echo a penumbra of sites whose level of behaviour has gone well beyond the pale of decency. That misbehaviour has to be addressed, and it is obvious from the thread owner’s comments that it is addressing abuse on both sides of the issue. Let the onlooker also notice that all of this is on side tracks from the pivotal issues. That is no coincidence. KF

Seems like the right move to me. The conversation wasn't going anywhere, except off the rails. And I like that they (probably inadvertently) closed it just in time to catch Joe getting caught red-handed in a blatant lie.
