|Has anyone been saving versions of the various Mathgrrl threads over at UD? A quick glance at the "Is Mathgirl Smarter than Orgel and Wicken Combined?" post shows evidence of a wholesale whitewashing of the discussion. |
Note this comment:
Sorry, I messed up the quote tags in 275. My comment on Scott’s observation begins with “An illustration:”
The comment, in and of itself, isn't all that interesting. Merely a commenter noting that he messed up formating on his previous comment and giving folks enough information so that they can discern where James' commentary begins. What is interesting here is that he referred to that comment as number 275, but it is currently numbered 247. Somewhere along the line, 28 comments have been deleted.
PTET in his wisdom has archived the thread up to his banning here:
A quick comparison shows that the mismatch starts at around post 210. It looks like it is much of the 'Electricity Hates Water' discussion that has been excised.
In a similar vein KF defends and sucks up to JoeG (sorry for that picture) frequently (cf. KFs rationalization that JoeG apologized and corrected his behaviour when idcurious 'doubled-down' - when the reality is plainly there for all to see in black and white). You have to believe he has looked at Joe's blog and seen how Joe spews his expletive-ridden rants there, but the desire to maintain the big tent must be stronger than the revulsion he undoubtedly must feel at having to be kissin' cousins with him all day long.
I mean, can you really see Mr Straight-and-Narrow GEM with his old-style Dickensian speech really wanting to get within 1000 miles of Joe outside of the blogosphere? Perhaps Joe is a necessary evil that must just be endured when fighting the good fight. It's a test of his faith, perhaps. Weird.
Joe: Most criticisims of ID stem from ignorance and jealousy.
Joe: As for the authors of the books in the Bible, well the OT was authored by Moses and the NT was authored by various people.
Byers: The eskimo would not need hairy hair growth as hair, I say, is for keeping people dry. Not warm.
