This was essentially a decision on my part that it would take up too much of my time to continue
effective moderationcensorship of the site under relaxed rules.
The “crisis” I warned about by mimicing Joe Biden’s infamous “test the mettle of the new guy” gaffe was anticipation of a rush by gratuitous religion bashers and design deniers to see what
disruptionintelligent and inflammatoryinformed comments they could get away with. Keeping the current polite dialogcesspool of ignorance and sycophancy going in such an environment is more work than I’m prepared to take on. Under the previous rules it was only taking a few minutes of targeted interventiongutless and ignorant censorship each day. That’s solely, IMO, a result of the ruthless moderationterrified censorship policy established by Bill Dembski in the first months of UD and carried on by me….
Fixed that for you, Davey.
DavidBrennan is no longer with us. His comments and responses to his comments were disappeared along with him.
I love science and I hate what is being done to it through the use of despicable tactics to suppress open dialogue.
