Please welcome our latest moderator, ScienceSquirrel


He is going to restore the glory of Sciencemadness that best matches your personal rose-colored memories of some time in the past. Or at least he won't let so much garbage sit around unattended.

Thanks for joining the moderator team, ScienceSquirrel!

Thank you for your best wishes.
I am going to try and be a good and fair moderator.
I feel that it is not an easy job but hopefully I will grow in to it.
You are a very intelligent but sometimes argumentative bunch.
If you feel I get it wrong then U2U me and I will try and reach a compromise.

Good riddance to that thread.

@UnitentionalChaos

Spoken like a true constable in the "thought police" ...or are you
"neighborhood watch" or "thought police youth auxilliary" .....
you know an honorary thought policeman?
Oh Pleeeeease .....don't tase me bro ....
Massa, I won't do anymore
"wrong thinking' ......I promise :D

Wait just a minute .....

[1] Was that thread actually "devoid of any meaningful or useful content" ?

or ....wasn't it just, in the alternative

[2] "politically incorrect" ?

This seems more like Fahrenheit 451 sort of stuff....
like a roll call for "firemen"

I deleted posts from both sides. and I tried to be fair.
Most of the deleted posts were for bad language.
I tried not to act as a censor but I only have limited free time to act as a moderator so it is easier to do a quick chop.
I have read Fahrenheit 451, 1984, Brave New World and more besides.
As far as I see it this forum does not have a thought police and there is no 'unthink'.
Language that would be banned in the US Congress and most parliaments is allowed in the Science Madness public square.

That thread was less science oriented then most of the detritus folder.

No thought policing involved, the thread was not deleted after all; it was just put to rest like the beaten dead horse that it was.

Riiiiiight NASA doesn't do science anymore. For "riiiiiight thinking" I must try to remember the only "real" science in which any confidence can be placed is done only by atheist radical environmentalist Marxists who are proponents of the deindustrialization of the United States, its subsequent bankruptcy and collapse.
Radical environmentalists are inherently objectors to frank discussions which they want silenced, and SS obliged them. When radicals are responded to honestly, they rail at reasonable men with false accusations and ridicule with malicious purpose, which is no controversy according to themselves. I did hit the nail on the head by calling those radical environmentalists Marxist agent provocateurs, not as "name calling" but to use precisely correct terminology for what they are. Controversy arises when honest and effective rebuttals effectively put those deceivers in their place. They can't take being exposed so they cry foul. And SS listened to them, instead of telling them simply to STFU, and as a consequence later everybody has to shut up when the thread becomes clogged with argument, is censored, and impudent irrational actors feel like a victory has been handed to them, emboldening them to continue later with the same propaganda until the thread is locked as was their goal. That is what happened. The same Marxist radical environmentalist trolls and "thread saboteurs" will continue as "spoilers" with the same lies, and the same phony science agenda at first opportunity. They are not gentlemen and scholars but are troublemaking imbeciles. SS let an LSD addled vegetarian bicycle riding Marxist propagandist sabotage a GW thread, with hissingnoise cheering him on every step of the way.

And with regards to posts simply being archived in detritus and not deleted outright, no that is not all that occurred. In fact some very cogent posts by myself and IrC were deleted outright and those posts contained no foul language, but only expressed unimpeachable dissent and rebuttal towards
the trashing of the thread by both trolls and moderators.

Here's a couple of links which may be interesting

Anyone who read Bradbury, Orwell, and Huxley without understanding should reread with better comprehension.

For four years I rode a bicycle daily anywhere from 15 to 25 miles daily and sometimes 50 or more. Bicycles are not the issue. Imbeciles with computers are.

@Mr. Wizard ......great clip ......
It's the whole "Ameritopia" concept :D

ScienceSquirrel is not chief censor. I am. I did the big pruning of the GW thread before it was closed. I also outright deleted a couple of posts from Rosco and GreenD when it was apparent that the subtle hint of redirecting posts to Detritus wasn't working. GreenD had a larger proportion of his posts in that thread sent to Detritus than Rosco did.

I fully support ScienceSquirrel. If you want to fork the forum into a version that welcomes political and religious debate, I have tried to make it as easy as possible: https://www.sciencemadness.org/whisper/viewthread.php?tid=12...

Too bad the thread was throttled, I think we were actually making progress into the real cause of AGW.
