    Would that be better?
    So your cause for dispute is your own assumtion. Once again you alter the order of investigation and come to a mistaken conclusion which you then claim is wrong.

    I'll not post in this thread until you change the name of your gnome.

    Let's call it GNU - generally not useful. Also refers to a large, smelly beast of burden.

    So, uh, beer.

    As the term "mainstream" is used on so many so called sciences boards dishonestly and really represents popular fads and ignorance of those boards can we change the name to something else? Anything else would be better. "The Outer Limits" would be better.
    Lies have the stench of death and defeat.

    What is BAUT (or BAUD or whatever it is called) and why should I have unsavory feelings towards him/her/it? As I understand the mission of ATM, it was the place to initially discuss something similar to String Theory way back when BB was Mainstream. Now that String Theory is considered part of Mainstream, it is (or should be) no longer discussed in ATM...is my understanding the role of ATM correctly?

    Thus, my vote for BEER.....

    BAUT merged with Cosmo-something-or-other. Regardless, they've got a "slightly" new way of handling ATM/CT stuff. Linky.

    I like our way, better.

    That link is to the updates made in April of last year right? Right now, there aren't a lot of substantive changes to the board. We just sold the naming rights.

    Yep.

    No, but the stagnation began when BA joined with UT. It worsened with the new crop of admins/mods back around 2007/2008, and was joined with some fairly serious oppression of anything not perfectly politically correct with daisies on it. The way they handled AGW, for example, was a disaster. Meanwhile, new studies like this keep cropping up: Orbital forcing of tree-ring data. No wonder they used to grow grapes in Scotland.

    We just sold the naming rights.
    So, are you rolling in dough, or did Phil and Fraser pocket everything?

    We got lots of dough, but it was all frozen pizza dough. We didn't refrigerate it, and now it's everywhere, a real mess. Phil put it in his pockets, and it raised, and now he looks like the Michelin man.

    Skinny Phil, eh? Lol!

    By the way, I love the fact that we're more of the "beer" crowd.
