I have only ignored one person... I enjoy discussions with wooists, conspiracists, and the like... without them the forum would be dull...

The irony in all of this is that when I put Zeuzzz on ignore, I was very clear why I was doing it... explicit even. This, as you have correctly identified, childish whining.

Then again, the first thread this {!#%@} made here was to cry about being banned from JREF, so this should be a shock to precisely no one.

I'm certainly not shocked and I'm relatively certain I had him on ignore well before you. :P

Master forum posterz join a forum & immediately put everybody on ignore. Its the best way to get your work dun. Having to respond to disenting opinionz only wastes time. Nobodyz going to chanje your mind anyway.

Jo, don't take offense but I ignore your posts more than most others. Not because I hate you (I like you plenty), and not because you have nothing useful to say (I think you're posts are interesting) but simply because you're too hard to read.

One has to work to read your weird phonetic spelling. If I liked working, I wouldn't be goofing off here. :lol:

My editing history usually starts with me smashing my face against the keyboard several times, then I see what I can do with the output to get words to form, and finally I try to rearrange them into sssssyntactically ssssssignificant ssssssentence ssssssstructuressss.

This is rather, to say the least, amusing. Letys just recap a few posts by you that qualify far more as whining than anything I have ever said to you here (that's a direct challenge for you to find a case of me being equally abusive to you)

He's allowed to say whatever he likes within forum rules. Doesn't mean he can't be ridiculed or put on ignore.

Yes, you did give it a valiant try JO.

And more than being valiant, you are a thoroughly decent person.
I feel privileged to have gotten to know you here ....(and no, that doesn't mean that I think that NoAlph is either an aesthetic improvement over evolved English, or necessary).
It means I think you are thoughtful, good, and kind: in all, special.

Daed, you & me kinda get along, but imao, youre the kind uv thinker that applyz your mental abilityz more az an attempt to hinder progress than to actually understand new ideaz. Skeptisizm for you iz like a niteclub door goon, passing only the properly attired & credentialed.

So eezy to keep thinking that everything in your hed iz perfect. Too much work to clear out a space for a fresh perspectiv. Too scary, kuz it mite work better than the old stuff, then you woud hav to clear it all out & rebild.

Speaking uv lazyness, I suppoze I'll hav to finally get around to reading the zeuzzz vs Daedalus posts that precipitated this topic.

On the bolded topic: "It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs: the most skeptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us and at the same time a great openness to new ideas . . . If you are only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you . . . On the other hand, if you are open to the point of gullibility and have not an ounce of skeptical sense in you, then you cannot distinguish the useful ideas from the worthless ones.[/b]"

So eezy to keep thinking that everything in your hed iz perfect. Too much work to clear out a space for a fresh perspectiv. Too scary, kuz it mite work better than the old stuff, then you woud hav to clear it all out & rebild.

Speaking uv lazyness, I suppoze I'll hav to finally get around to reading the zeuzzz vs Daedalus posts that precipitated this topic.
I disagree, it just happens that on this site, as any skeptic forum, you have a LOT of people peddling "new ideaz" that are actually very OLD ideas dressed up. Generally, these are very old, very discredited, and not worth the time to deal with.

Don't judge my intellectual stance on new ideas based on the very limited and specific sampling you get while under the assault of cranks, hoaxers, and lunatics.

For instance, I think that you're a crank, but a very likable and personable crank. I don't write you off as a person because I disagree with your views on language, guns, etc... I merely write off your views in those areas. Note also, that I spent a good amount of time engaging with you on both of those topics before walking away, I didn't just say, "Wow, there is some colossal moron."

SOME people, such as holocaust deniers, don't require that kind of engagement to assess their ideas, and I simply move directly to hostility or avoidance.

At the end of the day I doubt everything in my head JO, and I'm very wary of people who walk around with a calm sense of certainty. Your nearly religious and unsupported faith in the need for Nooalf for instance, rings alarm bells with me; there is nothing in my life that compares to that level of faith.

Not even your faith that I'm a colossal moron based on just a few forums threads before they had even concluded?

zeuzzz - I try to keep my statements unambiguous, but occasionally fail. I reread my post and dont see how it can be misinterpretted. If the spelling really iz throwing you off, I'm sorry, but the cement in everybodyz hed needz to be broken up & hauled away. Try reading the new first paje at NQaLF. XU FYQCR UV SPeLING. Hardly anybody cant.

Daed - Good post. Seemz reazonable, but its mainly frum being well written.

The problem you hav iz that you cant seem to tell wen youre being analytical or engajing in rationalization. (unless you are intentionally trying to mislead us) Sumwun rote "the smartest people hav the most persuasiv demonz". Wish I coud remember who.

I red sum uv the Burzynski topic and you seemed to alredy be angry with z. I'm not exactly overloaded with free time, so coud wun uv you direct me to the plase where thingz frst went sour?

LOL of course... except for the faith in your own self-awareness.
WHich judging by this latest paean to yourself is... well AWESOME.

Although..... what actually comes across is that underneath every voice crying "eat {!#%@} and DIE!!" in the wilderness, is a poignant, disappointed human who wants to be understood, desired, loved... much like lesser mortals always have, and always will.
And that the deranged invective spewed indiscriminately at hapless victims is just a ploy to cover up weeping eyes, and a tender, actually beating heart full of longing for a thoughtful caress.
Alas poor Daedalus: suffering from being bereft of human affection, and not knowing how to get it.
Maybe poor Daedalust should throw caution (repression) to the winds and just stand on a street corner, belting out:
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Or, she could pray to St. Jude (of hopeless causes).
