TOTALLY DISAGREE! There have been NUMEROUS posts by NUMEROUS members stating that the moderation here is UNABLE to fairly and unbiasedly decide what is a controversial comment!

(Please see the intentional irony and don't suspend me!)

Ahhhh. But you don't know who constitutes 'We' ... And who said unbiased?

We know well enough when we are being controversial.


But you just made a post about climate change?

Not so. I posted about latent heat. That, sir is not controversial.

Hey, just because your ice requires 334 j/g to melt, doesn't mean that mine has to! ;)

ETA: Back OT, I think I'm in with the Phase 3 crowd. So, whenever my number comes up, I'll be getting the vaccine, assuming no significant side affects come to light between now and then.

You quoted a post about a very controversial topic (climate change) and added to the discussion.

As a mod, when you contribute to a discussion, it’s presumed the topic is kosher.

So to set the record straight ... in a covid thread, the topic of MASKS is too controversial and banned, but the topic of CLIMATE CHANGE is not?

And we are just supposed to know that “well enough”?

Presumably I have your permission to create a climate change thread?

Regardless of the cause, man made or natural, the inevitability of an ice-free Arctic in the near term is no longer in dispute. You could educate yourself or not, I honestly don't care, but the future is already written and it will be in our lifetimes.



If it is inevitable then why worry about what you cannot change? As to me I am not buying it as I have heard it will happen in 20 yeard for 30 years now. Meanwhile in the 70s there were calls to drape huge swaths of black poly to keep the amount of ice down. Because then they said too much ice up there was going to kill us.

It is unfortunate that the issue of mask wearing has become political. However, it is obvious that the posts above on the topic are getting political. Kewlj, AZD, and Axelwolf are all officially warned to drop the topic of masks.

Please take it up at DT.


Make of that what you will. I'm not aware of much controversy here regarding climate change. I expect if that too became a proxy for politics or controversial in its own way, then it might get discouraged.
I just interpret the forum's rules. We can all do that and will all reach our own conclusions.

This is the comment that I was referring to, " I still belive [sic] had we done a much more rigorous proper lock down accros [sic] the world we could have confined much sooner. Unfortunately, I don't know if that was ever even a remote possibility. "

Ok, but, How is that political? I have no doubt someone can turn it into something political, but it seems you can turn just about any conversation into something political.



Axel is correct.

Obviously, when is that not the case?😊

But, seriously, I'm not trying to argue with Mike, I'm sure someone complained and that resulted in the warning.
Damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. He's the boss man around here, so, it is what it is! If my post was considered political in nature, then all the Covid threads are drenched in political statements far greater than mine.
