    Can I post a link in here to debunk without being banned? Mentors keep taking my name literally and giving me extra love....

    As long as it is a topic suitable to S&D. If the link is to debunk a scientific topic, no, if it is to discuss pseudoscience, no.

    I suggest you pm the link to Ivan Seeking and ask his opinion.

    As long as the post isn't offensive or in violatation of the posting guidelines, the worst that I would do is to delete or close the thread. And generally speaking it is good to provide a public debunking of nonsense; esp clever nonsense.

    It's an anti-relativity website, and it isn't all that clever. I already deleted it from the SR/GR Forum, and ZapperZ issued a warning for it.

    In that case it would last about ten minutes before being closed. :biggrin:
