So I was just browsing through the dictionary and got to "pompous windbag".

Guess who's picture I saw there?

Mr Matzke,

I scrolled up to post 15 ff.

I see you already tried a turnabout and pretzel twist game, compounding what you have done in recent weeks.

Strike three.

PLEASE LEAVE THIS THREAD, AND PLEASE DO NOT POST IN ANY THREADS I OWN UNTIL YOU CAN FIND THE BASIC MANNERS TO APOLOGISE FOR AND FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE YOUR CONDUCT TOWARDS BASIC CIVILITY.

Any further posts from you in this and future threads I own will be deleted, until you show that you have a civil tongue in your head.

Good day

GEM of TKI


No idea what provoked this response. Looks like Nick entered the thread to respond to an accusation of racism (for which he got an apology) and an accusation of outing a private conversation.

And this:

KF lets see, early in this thread, some before I started posting, I had several charges of dishonesty, inappropriate disclosure of confidential correspondence, and basically, racism thrown at me. Your response to all of that? Nada. When I get annoyed and dare to defend myself, you drop the ban-hammer on me.

Its not censorship, its just dumb. Who do you think you are fooling? Do you want to have a credible site, or one where the craziest basic mistakes about even simple matters far away from the science issues go uncorrected?

is now this:

Mr Matzke thinks that doubling down on accusations can help him get away with false accusations, similar to his literature bluffs that have already served the cause of injustice. When he learns civility he may return to threads I own. KF

Edit: For the record, KF has now added the following to comment 28:
Quote
As for his attempts to belittle and derail discussion of a report that something out there has caused VJTs thread to go viral, which turned out to be a republication of a story; let the resort to pettiness, churlishness, out of order behaviour, rudeness and the like speak for itself in the context of over a year in the which any objector to design theory anywhere in the world has had a free kick at goal, and there has been a refusal to take it. Likewise, it should be quite clear that I have no power to censor NM, i.e. suppress his freedom to express himself as he likes, but I am taking the step of saying his rudeness and pattern of false accusations of dishonesty have worn out his welcome in threads I own. I trust that this modest disciplinary step may help wake him up after his tantrum passes, and he will find it in himself to make amends. Enough is enough. KF

Absolutely shameful. To think that he cries "censorship" and questions the ethics of others and then behaves this way.

a more accurate description is stopping a distruptive heckler, spin doctor and false accuser from going insistently beyond the bounds of civility in order to routinely threadjack.


Of course, if someone did it to him, it would be censorship.

KF's not a censor, he's just applying a set of arbitrary and capricious rules when someone asks him a question he'd rather others didn't see.

And about your 6000 word Challenge? Step over to TSZ and we'll chat. No one wants to participate in your heavily censored environment.

Also, still no CSI calculations? Waterloo on hold?

He's still on with the 6,000 word essay? No replies, a year hath passed, speaks volumes. Largely about the contempt in which him and his venue are held. He brings a disreputable blog into further disrepute. Takes some doing.

Hmmm, wonder what you'd get from that viper if you attempted to discuss said essay following publication?

More KF loudspeaker to document. Also that kinda unhealthy obsession with Dr. Matzke has led him to ban Roy for either agreeing with Nick? or denying he's Nick's sockpuppet?


Quote

RoyMarch 11, 2014 at 5:54 pm

Emphasis mine:
In this particular case, in a previous thread, he and confederates/ enablers falsely accused me of Gish Gallop (triggered by a point-wise summary at 23) [cf 31 which specifically addresses rude disruptiveness] and quote mining [which I corrected at 51 on here by making an extensive citation proving the contrary; observe round-up at 75 which I was forced to make on Christmas Day], which when he vanished was then taken up by a sock puppet or confederate or enabler.

I am not a sock puppet of Nick Matzke. Your suggestion that Nick uses sock puppet accounts, implying deceitfulness, is not only false but also completely unjustified. You owe Nick Matzke a retraction and an apology.

> Au Contraire, your behaviour shows that you fit the categories [recall, three-fold . . . denoting a range of possibilities], in fact for instance, you may be a persona of one of the denizens of a cluster of notorious sites that are known to explicitly collaborate on tactics and moves, or to informally support and enable. As for NM, he has been long since demonstrated dishonest starting with the lies circulated by NCSE while he was their publicist. Lies that have materially contributed to unjust court decision and unjustified career busting. In the more immediate context of the past few months, as shown above with links, his false accusation of Gish Gallop which led to my finally dealing with him as a heckler, is a further case in point.

> I also have not failed to notice, that you have tried to deny and dismiss the slanders that have been documented on NMs part, whilst trying to twist about and further falsely accuse me. Typical.

> Let me also make something clear about the range of meanings of the term sock puppet, per Wikipedia:

>>A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The terma reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sockoriginally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an internet community who spoke to, or about, himself while pretending to be another person.[1] The term now includes other misleading uses of online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a person or organization,[2] or to circumvent a suspension or ban from a website. A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym[3] and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the puppeteer. Many online communities attempt to block sockpuppets.>>

> The point should be clear enough: you popped up as second after NM vanished in a thread, now, more than one. You are using an effectively anonymous identity and are posing as an unaffiliated third party. But, your function in a context of trying to dismiss demonstrated problems with NM and to resort to twistabout personal attack, smearing false accusation tactics comes straight out of the Alinskyite astro-turf [as in not grassroots] tactics book.

> And as for you Roy, you are now on notice that you too have some apologising and making of amends to do.

Nor am I a confederate of Nick Matzke. We have never met, have never spoken, and (unless hes replied to one of my few posts at The Pandas Thumb) never communicated on-line. Nor can I be an enabler, since Nick posted long before I did. Those are also false accusations.


> your denial in the teeth of facts shown to the contrary simply, sadly, further demonstrates your status. At minimum, you are an enabler, and your behaviour in co-ordination or support may indicate, confederate. I cannot even eliminate sock puppet given the patterns and behaviour in view. Sorry, but your say-so, given your patterns of behaviour, is not good enough.

There is no right to be rude or to make false accusations,


Then desist.

> A compounding, turnabout false accusation.

> Strike 2. If you do not make amends, you have the choice (a) remove yourself from threads I own, or (b) be treated as a disruptive, false-accusation making heckler.

> And, I take the step of marking up your comment to show the serious nature of what you are doing. KF

It won't do anything about his posturing but I'm thinking about launching a kickstarter to purchase a ticket to the island so I can steal KF's thesaurus.

Sadly, Rich's comments don't even make it to the moderation queue any more.

He started positively, trying to coax out some actual probabilities in this thread:

http://www.uncommondescent.com/atheism....vidence

Barry gets the hump almost immediately, a get out the loudspeaker in the ceiling©.

Some of the better exchanges:

Rich: “ In my column for the Times, I wrote about the record-holding tiny genome, belonging to a microbe called Tremblaya. Its genome is a mere 139,000 base pairs. “

http://phenomena.nationalgeogr.....shrinking/....rin....rinking

....

So 139,000 base pairs = (at 2 bits per base pair) = 278000 bits = about 34k!

Barry: Rich @ 100. I can’t tell if you are being serious. Are you really suggesting that cellular life is so simple that the information necessary for a fully functioning cell is only 34k? Do you have any evidence for that other than your obviously flawed back of the envelope calculation there?

Rich: Barry says above “I can’t tell if you are being serious. Are you really suggesting that cellular life is so simple that the information necessary for a fully functioning cell is only 34k? Do you have any evidence for that other than your obviously flawed back of the envelope calculation there?”

Please help me understand what is wrong with my math.

Thanks in advance,
Rich

Hi Editor (Barry?)
First, please be honest enough to use your name.
Second, I clearly say:
“I was googling to try and find the least information required for self replication”.
I don’t mention the cell in that post at all. In fact, I previously say:
“Also doing some research I don’t think we should be using “the simplistic cell” as the start of life. Some Evolutionists subscribe to the RNA world and that would I think require much less information. If we’re arguing that a cell was created de novo, we won’t be taken seriously.”
So I think that’s quite honest and clear. Do you have a problem with that?


So there we have it. Rich tried really hard to make them do some math. And he was positive and upbeat just like the awesome EL.

Barry, honey, we don't mind that you're shit at math and science, but you make UD BORING. The web has enough blowhard apologetics sites. Your preening, posturing, lawyering and selectively approving comments isn't really helping ID as science. Have you given up on ID as science?

From the new "How to Get Banned" post: "No one gets banned from UD unless they repeatedly violate the moderation policy."

From the Moderation tab in the masthead, in which the new owner collects Dembski's commenting rules, "further stipulating that nothing has changed": "Finally, there is one cardinal rule at this blog, namely, I make up the rules as I go along."

The only firm rule at UD seems to be, Thou Shalt Not Make Barry Arrington Feel Inadequate.

Not literally, since there are no firm rules, but it's the only explanation I see for booting Dr. Liddle.

Blasphemy crosses the line. Graham2 is no longer with us.

You know. The line.

BTW, there's a powder for that.
