I'd like to post a link to debunk

  1. 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.
     
  4. yeah general crackpottery... but eloquent and deceptive crackpottery and I was having problem quickly identifying the problem and wanted help. I'll PM Ivan. Thanks

    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:
