|Oh, I'm not denying that, and goodness knows I hate to feed a potential martyr complex, but I think, for once, if you cut through the hyperbole and shrieking from FtK, what she says is, in essence, true. Lenny has reasons for what he does, don't get me wrong, but FtK is, for once as far as I can tell, being civil, and I think that banning her would not only feed the potential complex, but also be an error in judgement. I feel that FtK should be aloud to talk to anyone she likes on here, since she certainly is responding to people (albeit only vaugely and sporadically) and only clams up when people go on the offensive (as she interprets that).|
Since I was civil, and tipped my hat to her, metophorically speaking, she's responded to me in the exact way I expected her to, and while I'm not impressed with Mr Brown, it has been a learning curve for me, which is all I really wanted. I honestly don't think that FtK is in the wrong, as long as she calms down and admits to hyperbole in her damnation of Lenny.
Ftk always sounds civil. I also do not want her banned.
Ftk only sounds civil though. She has made a shed-load of claims here and consistently fails to back them up.
If Ftk gets banned over the reason Wes posted it is her fault and only her fault. She has the choice to either back the claim or retract.
You are being civil to Ftk but I have seen no evidence so-far that it is reciprocated. Yes, she sounds polite, then fails to answer (with evidence) questions regarding her claims.
Sorry for derailing your line of inquiry, but as soon as Ftk answers a question (with substance) of yours, I will STFU.
Oh no, don't get me wrong, I think she's being weasly as well (sorry FtK, but you are), however I dont think being weasly is a huge crime. It's annoying, and I would rather she answered, but to one such as I, where most things are a learning curve when it comes to psuedoscience (I had virtually no exposure to it, apart from quack medicine nonsense) any response she gives is top notch. As long as she answers a couple of questions at a time, in some way, even if it is just "read this" (let's not forget the constant stream of "read talk.origins") then I am happy with it. There's only one question I absolutely want her own 100% no faking or diverting opinion on, and if she answers that, I'll be more than pleased.
I'm not the fastest or the baddest or the fatest.
You NEVER seem to address the fact that the grand majority of people supporting Darwinism in these on line forums and blogs are atheists. That doesn't seem to bother you guys in the least. - FtK
