vampares` has been banned as a sockpuppet of vampares. I don't know how we figured it out, but we did.

Earlier today, while I was in between making sandwiches, doing the dishes and pining over strong males that might make my abdomen swell and save me from predators,* I found myself here to observe the

Staff consensus is that the week of July 9 be deemed to be abuse-from-Aethelwulf free. Suspended.

SimonFunnell has been banned for abusive behavior, an overall lack of trust, and his inability to apply science to any of his discussions. Since this is a science discussion forum, it would be wrong of us to hold him back from his other, unquestionably more productive pursuits.

granpa has been banned for repeated soapboxing (we shouldn't have to beg for links to back up claims, or to find out that the claims are not substantiated, and repeating a claim is not evidence for the claim) and a history of rude behavior.

Over 9000 has been suspended for 3 days for abusive behavior and thread hijacking, and for refusing requests for clarity. New member hopefully, shaky start, nothing that can't be fixed with a bit more civility and patience.

Over 9000, bering strait, and meLothedestroyerofworlds have been suspended pending account review. We sure don't mind hearing controversial perspectives as long as they don't break the rules, and all three of these accounts have pushed those rules far past breaking. We'll be reviewing these accounts separately to see if the suspensions will become permanent.

 

Upon staff review, the suspensions have been upgraded to full bans for all three. It's always been our policy to give people the benefit of the doubt when it comes to learning (very sorry it takes so long sometimes), but when it's obvious the learning is secondary to an agenda, we have to draw the line. It's even more important when that agenda is unsavory as racism and discrimination. No place for those in science.

zbigniew.modrzejewski has been suspended three days for spamming the forums with multiple threads on the same topic, and hijacking other discussions. The garish use of text highlighting did not help matters.

The Bobster was suspended pending staff review; following review it has been decided to ban permanently. We have very little tolerance for those who come here with an agenda of hate and division - especially when there is a duplicitous guise of a simple quest for scientific knowledge.

 

The ScienceForums.net will ALWAYS be open for scientific discussion - but we draw the line at allowing bigots to use our good name to mask their vile and false propaganda.

pittsburghjoe has been banned for failing to improve his behavior after suspension: continually failing to support claims (i.e. soapboxing), on top of the sockpuppetry.
