I am trying to understand phoodoo. What are you doing?
I’m trying to understand you. I’m trying to understand why you think that five examples cannot possibly be found. I’m trying to understand why you think that finding five examples would change anything at all.
If phoodoo, or anyone else, can find five examples, will you resign as an admin?
I have a hypothesis. Rather than jumping to conclusions, I am gathering data to test it. You, on the other hand, are ascribing to me positions that I do not hold. Sadly, this has happened before.
What a silly idea.
I don’t question Nonlin’s intelligence, there’s no such thing to question.
Well then lazy ass, go check your data, why the hell are you asking others to check the website and see if you can find examples of posters accusing others of low intellect-and the mods doing nothing. You know why you can check it yourself-because you are one of those dam mods! Did you forget that is what you signed up for. I mean you can go ahead and resign if you aren’t interested in reading posts and seeing what their content is. I guess no one told you what moderators are supposed to do.
I’m sorry if you misunderstood: the hypothesis that I have been testing is about you, specifically:
Data collection is ongoing.
Don’t get me wrong, I like when Alan and Jock claim there are rules, then break those rules, and then say they aren’t breaking any rules, because the rules don’t apply.
Its funny. Stupid as fuck, and that’s why its funny. Because Alan making this site stupid is funny.
Is it known when the most recent person to join this site was, or how many people have joined TSZ in the past 12 months?
I have submitted a new post. Please check.
Are quite the amusing coupling. Who are you asking to check your post? The rulebreakers? Is there a rule that posts should be published if they are legal then? Why would you expect a rule breaker to follow that rule?
In short, collaborator, your hypocrisy is showing.
As one of the targets of phoodoo’s spittle, I request the two comments in question not be guano’ed.
I recognize that Corneel is also a target, however. Your call, Alan.
Corneel is referred to as a scumbag in both comments. It’s beyond the pale in my view.
First, that’s a lie Alan. I asked him if he was a scumbag, I didn’t say he was a scumbag.
Secondly, to quote YOU, maybe he likes being a scumbag, its not an insult, its an observation!
THIS is why Jock is wrong, for those who don’t believe it:
Alan is up to his old tricks again.
I have submittted a new post, thanks.
The editing tool has gone?
I have an OP in the pending queue. Please publish it and elevate my privileges so that I, like others, can post OPs in the future without waiting for moderator assistance.
Also, please change the category of my OP from ‘Evolution’ to ‘Theism and atheism’.
I’ve swapped your membership category to New Author as requested. Elevation is beyond my powers.
Instructions for petrushka and anyone else who would like to bypass the crappy quote function and do their quotes manually:
It’s pretty easy. Just stick the quote in between a <blockquote> tag and a </blockquote> tag, like this:
<blockquote>What is the difference between a duck?</blockquote>
ETA: The answer, if you’re curious: One leg is both the same.
I’ve done that on numerous occasions, but it’s painful on a tablet.
On my phone and my tablet (both Samsung), the keyboard has learned to predict ‘blockquote’ when I type ‘<' and also when I type '</'. That makes it a lot easier.
Do you have autosuggest turned on?
Odd. Highlighting and tapping “quote in reply” works for me.
I’d like to know how to turn predictive text off.
On my phone (a Galaxy S21 Ultra) you can do it by opening the keyboard (I’m using the Samsung keyboard), tapping the gear icon, and then tapping on “Predictive text” to turn it off.
I imagine it’s similar for other keyboards.
There’s a comment stuck in the pending queue, apparently from a newly-registered user.
but why would one want to turn it off? I for one always have a gentle chuckle when the scientifically created “super” AI fail to accurately read me. Try all you want fools, but nothing changes the fact that faith guides my words, not robots.
Because I found it worse than unhelpful. I now have it set as an option which is better.
Fair enough. What amuses different folks is a source of mystery to me.
Not sure who you mean by the collective “fools”. Sure, we have a commenter here who is keen on faith arguments. Perhaps you’d like to join in on a thread here if those sorts of arguments interest you. I’d counsel caution if your faith (in what, BTW?) is important to you.
Can I post a stats based article on the unexplained recent excess deaths worldwide and all over Europe?
Or the real data is not allowed anymore?
Apologies for late reply.
Unexplained? The appearance of the SARS- CoV-2 virus around the end of 2019 resulting in many extra deaths due to severe acute respiratory syndrome may have had something to do with it.
PM me when you need an OP publishing.
There is a comment in the Pending queue. Apparently a new commenter.
