I’m going to follow PZ Myers’s example and list all the commenters that are banned or on moderation. For definitions of the terms, see PZ Myers. The list below is the current list — changes since the original post are not indicated.
|Graeme Bird aka GMB, BeNice, Stopit, Catastrophic etc||Stupidity, Morphing, Stupidity, Wanking, Stupidity, Stupidity, Stupidity||Bird has been banned or placed on moderation in pretty well every place where has posted. Has his own blog where he doesn’t allow comments that disagree with him to stand. Sample: (On Real Climate) Can somebody hack their site and fucking destroy it?|
|JC aka Joe Cambria, Dave Curry, S Brid, Pessimist etc||Trolling, Trolling, Sockpuppetry Morphing||After I caught him with his hand up the sock, he accused me, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, of using socks. Fumento actually believed him.
Sample email: If I don’t get a public apology on your website, I WILL be seeing an
attorney to see if there is a shot at legal remedy. So take a roll of the
dice. I don’t know the law as yet. But if there is a shot at going for it I
will be seeing you in court. I can afford to have a lil fun. I am wondering
if you can? Oh, and by the way, don’t try to hire a UNSW lawyer for free, a
PR firm will put a stop to that. Roll the dice Timmy.
Sample comment:Lampert’s site … is the most resource rich in terms of finding an entire group of complete, unembarrassed unreconstructed Marxist lunatics all revved up by Lampert himself to bodily attack right wingers. … I always found it such fun. It was like teasing wild beasts using oneself as bait in a large open door cage. It was such a thrill in running to and then quickly closing the cage door as the wild animals attacked the bars that made in into a regular day sporting event in terms of getting a work out without ever having to go to gym.
|Tim Curtin aka Tam O’Shanter, Roger Champion, Arthur T Wall, Tony Wall, Reality Check||Trolling, Trolling, Sockpuppetry, Morphing||Accused me of disemvowelling everyone who disagreed with me, even though he knew this was untrue.|
|JF Beck aka THX 1139, BBGGun, S Whiplash||Trolling, Sockpuppetry, Trolling, Stupidity, Trolling||
This Monty Python sketch gives you the feel of what an argument with Beck is like.
Has his own blog full of posts about me. Sample post: “That brings us to the word of the week: Lambert, to attempt to refute an opposing argument or proposition through counter-argument or proposition based on subtly misrepresented facts; one who so argues (see liar).”
The title of this post comes from Usenet jargon for the sound of someone being dropped into your kill file.
