Um, Xouper, you do know you had a huge part in creating the fire in the first place. It was you who chose to goad someone over and over and over. You didn't have to goad them like that, but you did. You get a large chunk of the credit.

So let me get this clear:

You are berating us for not making lots 'n' lots of posts/threads about critical thinking on cherry picked bits of the forum, but then berate us for thinking critically about the JREF in lots 'n' lots of posts/threads in Banter.

Well, I guess that makes you a clueless fuckwit then.

Looking for company, Chuck?

We have turned a new page. . . .

. . . I could repost the pie, if you have not had enough.

That would be mean, of course, but, you know, this Board has no real discussions. Just ask the sychophants.

In the rain.

Charley, I forgot . . . you are needed in make-up to dress up as a Dried Up Old Lady so you may stir shit in two places to curry favor only to earn the disrespect and distrust of two places.

Some would say you are type-cast for the roll . . . unless you can think of someone else.

Now . . . let me see . . . is there someone else who fits the roll?

You can take that up with Skeeve if you like. S/he can take care of hirself.

But you'll have to take it up with Skeeve, as Skeeve the person is now somewhere in Pennsylvania. Well, or at least I think so. S/he could be on vacation at the minute, as s/he hasn't shown up on the mud in a week.

Pie.

Mm. Pie.

I just got a slightly early birthday gift, a pie plate decorated with a large caligraphic Greek lowercase pi. Around the rim runs the numerals: 3.14159265... etc.

All in the glaze of ceramics.

I knew some folks thought of me as a nerd, but I had no idea how much!

Sorry, jj, but the fire that Mr. Thing was talking about was burning quite well before I came back to the forum to pour some oil on it. I didn't start that particular fire, so I don't see how you can say I deserve a large chunk of the credit. In fact I had nothing at all to do with the new rule or any of the suspensions. So just how did I have a huge part in creating that fire when I wasn't even here to participate until after the fact?

Ummm, I believe the proper spelling is "Winston" not "Winson". As well, I'm positive it was "Ghengis Pwn" not "Ghengis Pawn".

Oh, I agree, you didn't instigate it. You just took the most obstinate, aggressive anti-everything stand, attacked everything in your path no-holds-barred,and did your best to rip ass from teakettle.

You didn't start it, but you've tried several times to finish it.

You know, in some ways we are alike, but you'd not likely understand.

There will always be a fire, for heavens' sake.

Some folks, on the other hand, do their damnedest to make it burn brighter.

P.S. And some claim there is "little" critical thinking on this board.
P.P.S. A commetator on the situation THERE remarked to the irony of its self-reference as a board for rational thinking thusly:
No one said it was a "high I.Q combined with superior deductive reasoning" board

xouper: Just recently (I won't say when), I successfully registered as a new member on the JREF forum and gave a false name.

jj: Anything to cause trouble, eh?

The Thing: Nothing unexpected, though? No posts at SC since 23 April, then suddenly shows up and decides to pour oil on the fire for his own self-gratification.

I see you too have grasped the uses of hyperbole.
jj: You didn't start it, but you've tried several times to finish it.
I take that as a retraction of your original claim that I had a huge part in creating it.

The point is, if the JREF forum were better run, there would be far less to criticize. Certain people have defended JREF forum management by observing that they are not professionals at running a forum. And I say exactly, they are rank amateurs and the problems they create for themselves speaks for itself to that fact.

I am deeply amused by those who defend such mediocrity by attacking the critics. Seems people like Skeptica are not the only ones with emotional attachments to the JREF forum.

Oh, I can understand the emotional attachment. People spend a lot of time reading, writing, socializing. Then things change.

This situation has a greater potential for emotional attachment since it involves subjects people feel very strongly about, AND it provided the opportunity to contribute in ways beyond simply "reading and writing."

You may not. The two statements are not mutually exclusive.
