    Default "My Ignore List" by BuleriaChk

    Neverfly has now closed all my threads and put them in Astrotech's name. My threads are my original work, and not his, and certainly not Neverfly's. Neverfly is despicable, and has bloated my threads with ignorance, arrogance, and misconceptions; he is a pompous, ignorant ass, bent on dumbing the conversation in this forum down to his very low technical level.

    Unfortunately, he is a moderator. An unethical, pompous, ignorant ass, whose signature w.r.t. Tyson is the height of hypocrisy.

    He is trying to silence me from finding compadres with whom I can intelligently discuss difficult subjects.

    I asked him repeatedly to stay out of my threads; I have NEVER attempted to take over the board. Unfortunately, Tom allows anyone, especially village idiots, to post in any thread they like, where the OP has no control over the content. I have always tried to answer technical questions, as I'm sure that anyone with any technical expertise at all will acknowledge.

    I am definitely not interested in controlling the board; I just want to present and discuss my own work without Village Idiots braying "nonsense" like donkeys when they have no idea WTF I am talking about.

    As far as my work is concerned, time will tell, but Neverfly is supremely UNqualified to judge it.

    Neverfly is not qualified to be a peer reviewer of any sort; he knows practically nothing of modern physics or mathematics. Nevertheless, he has the power to silence those of us that are working to solve real problems with some background. It is a terrible situation for thus of us out of the university loop (I have a mathematics degee from University of California, Santa Barbara, and some graduate work in physics and Electrical Engineering, and many technical credentials from Santa Barbara Research Center and General Research; pm me if you want confirmation.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I use this forum to discuss concepts concerning Physics, Math, Philosophy, and other topics in which I am interested. There are those who I ignore for some reason, usually because they are technically incompetent, irrelevant, simply unpleasant or trolls. I think it a matter of common courtesy that those on my ignore list refrain from commenting in my threads, as I will in theirs.

    After a certain point, technical posts on this forum tend to degenerate into irrelevant noise and personal invective; when this happens, those actually interested in the ideas are welcome to send me a private message me and we'll see if we enjoy each others' company. If so, I'll add you to my contact list and we can continue the discussion with others of like mind on my private blog.

    See my suggestion in Forum Rules and Guidelines" : Thread and Message Options

    That said, I am only going to publicly list those who continue to post on my threads against my express request; I consider these people inconsiderate of common rules of interaction decency. They are not invited to my party and I have requested that they leave. In return, I will never post to threads they initiate.

    "A debate is a chess game of the intellect." I am not interested in debating with anyone on my ignore list.

    My public ignore list (the Peanut Gallery) at present: emperorzelos, grapes, Neverfly, Icarus496

    If you are following any of my threads, make sure you keep track of the post number of the last response, since they are often spammed by the Peanut Gallery (currently by the Naked Emperor).

    (In particular, emperorzelos seems to be trying to re-invent Descartes by referring (and spamming) all posts with a ridiculous limitation to set theory in the hope that everyone will recognize how fundamental he is by ignoring independent variables and the concept of dimension. He thus confuses every post he touches with this nonsense, a salad of irrelevant buzz-concepts. Like all fundamentalist religious fanatics he is incapbable of trying to understand the perspective of anyone else, and is quite nasty about it. Ignore him in all my threads, unless you want to waste time trying to figure out what he is talking about through all the buzzwords...

    I call him the "Naked Emperor" because not wearing intellectual clothes makes it very easy to place his head up his ass....

    (The Naked Emperor is now challenging me to a duel. One should never wrestle with a pig; you only get dirty, but the pig enjoys it.)

    Neverfly is a moderator who pontificates piously about philosophy of science, but I doubt has ever solved a single equation in his life. He has a very, very limited understanding of how equations applied to scientific concepts actually work.

    grapes (also a moderator) is occasionally off and on this list. I still can't figure out whether he is trolling (to waste my time) or searching for honest answers at the high school level of mathematical sophistication (if that) ... At present I am granting the benefit of the doubt for the second option...

    It is not common courtesy on a forum and you ignore people because they know things better than you and point out your ignorance on matters. Common "Being snarky"? Seriously? That's it? You are pathetic then. If you want people to stop being snarky, maybe being less dumb is a good option?

    Actually, you are on my private ignore list. I just sometimes weigh in to see your posts just for fun.
    But no need to publicize you; I concentrate publicly on genuine assholes who post in my threads when I have asked them not to.

    Or did I ever ask you not to post? I don't remember now, my bad....

    emporerzelos is on my ignore list for the obvious reasons above. The fact that he usually has his head up his ass is another...
    and the fact that the naked emperor usually has no clothes makes it is very easy for him to put it there ....

    At the height of the interchanges between John Gabriel and myself, I never included him on my list, since he never violated that courtesy. I feel that he was honest in his spirited defense of his perspectives, even if confused about the fundamental concepts, and so worthy of my basic respect.

    Not so with those on my ignore list.

    (One often has to travel with others on intellectual journeys to reach a common destination; unfortunately in forums like this there are sometimes unwelcome travelers in the public carriage, so that it begins to resemble a rest room rather than the lounge car. The people on my list are those that I do not wish participate in my journey, interactions with them usually result in pointless and misdirected pollution of threads that I initiate - I have no objection whatever to their starting their own threads, in which I will extend the reciprocal courtesy of not contributing to them... this is just a matter common courtesy, and ignoring these ethics merely makes the forum unpleasant for all and prohibits free expression and adjustment of ideas as they develop for those that start their own threads to discuss their own unique perspectives. Some "referees" (and I use the word loosely) smell a lot worse than others but the thread starter should be accorded the courtesy of being able to clean out and maintain his own carriage...)

    (If forum participants on my ignore list know and respect it, I will remove their names from public view)

    I am going to begin a contact list for those who wish to converse privately, so I can limit my discussion to those members whose comments are relevant and an honest effort to further the discussion. Pm me if you'd like to be on it and would like to participate there.

    You are free to choose how you interact with others to your hearts content. But I must say, no one is obligated to play by your own personal rules. It sometimes appears to me that you say others are being unproductive and you threaten to leave a thread based more on whether or not they agree or disagree with you.

    So my own contact list from here on out except when I care to post. But I still think that a contributor should be allowed to control the conversation his own threads and make judgements as to competence and proper discourse; that said, everyone should be free to start their own threads to answer others if desired ..

    Why do you think that? If John Gabriel could control how discussion went in his threads, he'd never be debunked. He, in fact, often TRIED to control it by post-flooding.
    This is a SCIENCE forum and as such, the Free Exchange of Ideas must be protected above all else. Above courtesy, above the supposed "right to go through life un-offended" and above desire to win the debate.
    Science is about challenging ideas. It is about hashing them out to observe the most accurate model. How could that be done if the members were so controlled? Worse, if members allowed and disallowed others rebuttals?
    The Scientific Method cannot function if it were allowed to oppress the thoughts and expressions of others.
    It cannot function if it is exclusive to only "agreement."

    Science is not about any person being right, it is about our models of the universe being as accurate as possible.
    Each and every one of us is capable of being wrong and it is necessary to have the doors open for others to show where any of us were in error.
