That was good, thanks

    I'll bite

Carry on.

I’ll bite.

That’s one limit I will draw; the misuse of science and physical principles is just too hard for me to swallow.  Must be my background or something.

You have your background and I have mine. I don’t have a PhD to wave around but FWIW I have served as editor on more than one doctoral dissertation.

Chris, you draw limits in some places but not others which ought to be just as problematic.

Yesterday I privately sent you a dreck example, a post on this site which not only repeated a lie but ended with a call to violence. It has been up for a long time and anyone who came across it or its ilk would get a seriously confused message about the intentions of this site. Such a post not only creates a moral contradiction … it and its ilk create a marketing problem.

Side comment: please note that if someone mentions a thing that concerns them it doesn’t follow that they’re criticizing the whole site, any more than pointing out a mustard stain on your collar would mean they’re criticizing your whole wardrobe.

Quote:

The “incident” was you posting pictures of rusty fire grates and claiming, rather unscientifically (and absolutely unconstructively) that common fires can melt steel.

Cough, cough … it was one picture of one grate, not plural. “No re-writing history please… ” 😉

The main points I was trying to make (and obviously failed) were that we need to be very careful about accepting negative suppositions (such-and-such is not possible), and we need to mindful of the difference between supposition and fact. “Supposition” does not mean “untrue” but it does mean “unproven”. 

Quote:

What you found hard to swallow was simple science to me.

I’m still stuck on this bit of simple science:

Melting point of steel = X

Temperatures within a “common fire” are not uniform … temperature variations are known to be sometimes greater than X.

Ergo … ?

This is for AKgranny:

 I would suggest that people dont want to hear about WTC-7 because it means they have to acknowledge that grade A evil preditors are alive and well and in our midst.  They arent ready, yet to the reality.  

I would suggest that your suggestion is incorrect. We know full well that evil lurks in many corners and comes in a variety of forms. Even our own hearts are not exempt. We also know that whole new layers of evil can result if we get facts wrong and ascribe evil to the wrong things (must … resist … Godwin’s Law).

I’m curious. Did you challenge that lie and the call to violence that accompanied it when you first saw it? That seems to me like the responsible, adult thing to do. I suspect you did not challenge that lie and it’s accompanying call to violence otherwise you wouldn’t have sent it as a private message to Chris today. So what am I to conclude? I think I understand you now, finally. You want someone else (someone “in authority”) to censor things you believe should not be seen or heard here. You don’t want to be burdened with engaging with icky people and trying by persuasion to set them straight. I empathize with the desire but reject the policy.

I didn’t respond to the example provided becuase it wasn’t even worth my time.  It was a comment from 2016 that concluded “we should respond with anger and string up our leaders by their fingernails.” in response to their dereliction of duty.

That doesn’t rise to my personal level of inciting violence.  It’s a common saying.

It didn’t trigger anything for me, honestly, and it still doesn’t.

    911 is now like 7-Eleven

A convenient way to store, slurp and sling a lot of empty calories

Chris is not the only scientist pointing out that physics and chemistry have some serious objections to that bizarre and fateful day. 

Nor is Yoxa the only site visitor clinging to pluralities to make his point

It’s funny how people (and now “our” media) accept the fact that we lied our way into a war that killed or displaced a millions souls and yet…. we’re freaks for thinking a false flag was used that only took down 3000. Oh… that was our team who scored their goal

I remember my brother in law said that if he had known it was for oil, he would have been more supportive from the get go.  That, unfortunately, is the human condition. More likely, the animal brain. If we think it’s something we really need, we will kill for it.

We’re going to be running out of a lot of stuff soon. I hope we evolve

I saw it for the first time only this week, so no I didn’t challenge it. I came aross it when poking around in Google to explore what PP’ers might have said about Alex Jones.

Recall that Chris had grumbled about people raising issues without providing specific examples. I sent it to him because, despite its age, it was precisely on point to illustrate a recently expressed concern.

Partly true. I do indeed believe that well-considered moderation can improve both the ethos and the effectiveness of a digital community, in much the same way that intelligent, discerning police work can improve the well-being of a physical community. In both cases I believe it because I have experienced it.

However, your inference that I would sit passively to let someone else do the thinking is less true. I’m sure a few folks around here have noticed that I do speak up when I perceive a problem, assuming that time permits.

That says it all. 

Great nets, made from grocery bags, harvesting plastic across a perfectly still sargasso sea, which we bring home, touch up with GMO’d bacteria from Bayer, and serve on the table to our families with a side of…

… of what?

    Electromagnetic radiation health effects

This might be a interesting topic to cover.

Dr. Sharon Goldberg, an internal medicine physician & professor gives her testimony regarding 5g technology dangers specifically involving electromagnetic radiation. She says: “Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period.”
