Check out the Armstrong Criminal Investigation thread. Man, it is going to be fun to watch a nasty cat tear apart a golf course troll.

edit - forget about it - bpc - aka FairWay... took a whole 47 minutes to get banned.

Continuing a trend I established earlier, thank you to Berzin for 'moderating' a discussion.

I'm really depreciating the fact that the mod's don't also ban the forum-ites who feed them better than a soup kitchen during Thanksgiving. Really people, if you fall for it every single time you also deserve a ban.

Now we have a moderator who warns a member who deviates from that which is "universally accepted as the truth."

It will be interesting to see how Berzin enforces his "universal truth" rule. Is that where this forum is going?

Since I'm not a Clinic 'insider' I really have no idea what your agenda in this is, but I find your latest attempt at trying to create some kind of issue where none exists, somewhat more than questionable.

Yes, it is widely accepted "as the truth" that Betsy Andreu was a victim of LA's, and that her integrity and credibility are beyond reproach. What's your problem?

My problem arises when moderators purport to moderate the "truth."

I couldn't care less about Betsy or Frankie, or the poster who used a false argument to insult them. My problem arises when the moderators start editing posts based on truth and falsehood.

Why?

Surely if someone has been corrected yet persists to ignore it then it just plain trolling.

MarkvW - If we have a mod who is trying to enforce a version of "truth", I will have to agree with you! But, I can not see that this this is an accurate portrayal of this situation. Berzin's statement that this is broadly accepted as true is not even particularly pertinent. He is trying, and this IS the job of a mod, to stop a thread degnerating into a logic-free flame war. Aleajactaest has not been muzzled, yet. Aleajactaest posted his/her views, and they are known. They contributed to a discussion. That "discussion" had deteriorated, and repeatedly posting the same arguments and POV was not, in Berzin's opinion, productive.

That does not constitute enforcing a universal truth.

Then why say it? I think (as a mod) it would better to use the more succinct Germanic Susan Westemeyer command of "Stay on topic!" than to use anything that might be construed as "enforcing a universal truth".
