No i disagree on the fact that the bad posting will stop appearing on this forum. As a matter of fact i think you will have a lot more deleting to do.This doesn't make any sense. You disagree with what, exactly? That the posts will be deleted? I assure you, they will.
In stead of dumping all rubbish in TD, the rubbish will spread out over the entire forum when you remove TD. that is my point.
Let me give you this example to illustrate why i think this: suppose some guy's pet theory is rejected (for the correct moderating-reasons, i am convinced that will always happen here, really). This guy wants to know why, so he starts posting his questions somewhere else in the forum, in another sub forum. Then, the administrators will need to trace back all these posts and delete then because the content will ofcourse be rubbish.
If you look at how difficult it is to convince people (BY USING FACTS) that their theory is wrong, how are you gonna cope with that ? I know you claim that you have already answered this question but i really do not think that.
I mean, you honestly do not believe that answering them back with PM will do the job, right ? That just is not realistic.
ThanksGood for you.
:rofl::rofl: Are you stoned?
No, i really think you were when you came up with this initiative
Yes indeed i did but i also told you that i participated on TD. What i meant to say was I left TD and stopped participating for specific reasons which are the same as why most of the members do not actively participate in TD.Firstly Marlon, you told me that you never read TD, and you made comments that are strongly consistent with that admission.
Do not worry, same here...I make my best effort to understand people as well as possible when I listen to them, but there's only so much I can do.
Mmm, i can see why you say this. Let me explain. What i wanted to say is that most people will not learn many things by reading TD posts. I believe the real sub forums and the journals are much more useful for these purposes.And secondly, my point to you is to "be more informed" about the things that you talk about. You said, "There is no real info in TD, only the notion that a certain post is wrong", which is patently false.
But let me excuse myself for this patently false statement
Yes, well let us not start insulting each other just because you disagree, ok ?I seriously doubt that you would be warned for well-considered criticisms of this idea that are free of barbs. But really Marlon, all you've done in this thread is engage in misguided ranting, which I think everyone can agree that we can do without.
