Has UD Reached its Best Before Date?

Uncommon Descent still has some interesting topics, but the authors of the OPs simply do not tolerate any comments that do not validate their opinions.

Worse than this, they label any commenter who disagrees with any of their opinions as a Darwinist/atheist/subjectivist/materialist/communist/progressive. The two most flagrant abusers are Barry Arrington, the moderator, and Gordon Mullings, who posts as KairosFocus.

Kairosfocus’ most recent rants have been about objective moral truths and his charity of the day, self-evident first duties. It has been pointed out to him on numerous occasions that his objective moral truths are nothing more than human behaviours that most people have subjectively determined to be in their best interest if they want to continue to thrive in a social setting.

Rather than address the arguments raised against his views, he repeatedly erects strawman versions of his opponents’ views, and then argues from consequence.

The issue worth discussing here, is whether KF has a valid point.

  1. Over on Joe’s blog, he apparently is obsessing over me again.

    Kevin Middlebrook, aka Acartia, Acartia blowTARD, William Spearshake, William dickshaker, etc., has finally admitted that it has a mental pathology that is well beyond its control. I have known that for years Kevin has been struggling with dementia and the inability to grasp reality. But hopefully Kevin is getting the help it needs. Although, truthfully, Kevin is too far gone for any help to have any effect.

    Kevin Middlebrook has always been a pathological liar and coward. He actually thinks that ice and water are the same. That ice is made up OF water not that ice is made FROM water. He also said there was a code that turned water into ice! But what do you expect from someone who sniffs little boys’ underwear?

    This in spite of the fact that my name isn’t Kevin Middlebrook. And I really haven’t commented anywhere, except a couple here, for over a couple years.

    But, at UD, he had apparently latched on the false conclusion that I am Fred Hickson, a recent commenter at UD.

    Joe really has to seek some help over his unhealthy obsession with me. I am really not that interesting. 🙂

  2. Acartia: Over on Joe’s blog

    You made me look! 😠😱

    Nasty little shit with his post on Steve Story. Didn’t notice it on my previous drive-by.

    Re Fred Hickson, I did wonder but if you say so…

    I’m likely going to regret asking this, but what’s the URL for his blog?

    Well, you have now been graced with a post on Joe’s site.

  5. Alan Fox:
    Acartia,

    I feel like Abu Hassan now! 😏

    And who is Richard Saunders?

    I have no idea. I remember Jie arguing over chemical affinities over at UD, but I don’t remember the thread or the commenter. But I am fairly certain that it wasn’t Richard Saunders.

    Joe has an unhealthy obsession with a few people and sees them in every commenter who disagrees with him.
