Banned/Suspended Users

Recommended Posts

Quantum321 has been banned for abusing the PM system. Folks, the rules are really clear, and no matter how passionate you are about your ideas, please remember we're all here voluntarily, and we've chosen civility as our #1 rule. Nobody gets threatened here. We attack ideas, not people.

Scotty99 has been banned permanently. His "intuitive" beliefs are always going to clash with rigorous explanations, since they bond emotionally with what he wants to be true, and that makes discussing science with him like listening to a sermon. We wish him luck in his search for intellectual equals.

I am leaving, Some of the Mods can go take a long walk off a short cliff. I will not be back EVER!

 

It seems that "ever" equals approximately 7 months. VictorMedvil has been banned as a sock puppet of VMedvil

interested has been banned permanently for an inappropriate attack on a fellow member, on top of past suspensions. Remember, if you find yourself posting foul language, you probably aren't attacking an idea.

inSe has been suspended for 1 month for sock puppetry, an inability to act without aggression, and for posting a lot of nonsense.  

This has been extended indefinitely, for using a sock puppet account to evade a suspension. Pock Suppet has been banned as well.

Kafei has been banned at his request. We thank him for cutting the red tape, since it would have been a few hours more before other mods could have weighed in and agreed to that action. Also for the lesson that claiming you haven't broken any rules means nothing when you don't actually know/understand what the rules are.

electricalelectronics has been spam-banned for posting vulgar and pornographic material. Apparently he either had a meltdown after being warned about some marginal posts, or was planning on being a jerk all along.

Spam-banning removes all of his posts. Apologies if this disrupts any ongoing discussion, from before he decided to react like a child.

Taxonomist didn't make it to 7 posts before violating most of the rules, so he's banned. Probably mikemikev anyway, same flavor of hate.
