Account Closing and Post Editing
Just an update since recent events involving Doctor X and some spilt milk.

Regarding account closure, since he requested us to delete his account. We used to do this on user request. We no longer do this since it's not worth the effort. Sometimes users spit the dummy and then decide to come back, only to spit the dummy again. It's happened before and we are not paid to babysit.

The other reason is the posts stay around anyway so deleting the account doesn't serve any useful function other than removing a row from the users table.


Regarding Post editing:
Those of us in the forum team are currently discussing options to deal with what happened since Doc X vandalized hundreds of his posts using the self-edit feature. Similar things have happened before.

With great power comes great responsibility. Enjoy the cliche moment.

Now is a great time to pass the patriot act through congress to deal with forum terrorists.


......not funny?

RE: Account Closing and Post Editing
Doctor X was here just recently for just a very short time. He had a relevant, well written presentation that he copy/pasted into a few threads as a response to troll arguments.

Chas decided it was spam having it repeatedly posted - an intolerable thing for him. Chas warned Doctor X he would delete it the next time he posted it. Doctor X took it just as personally and requested his account be deleted and then systematically deleted nearly all his previous posts.

I liked Doctor X. He was smart and unshakable ... to a certain extent.

Some people are often quite overly focused and when startled out of this focus, it can be somewhat traumatic so, they bolt. I think that may be the case with Doctor X.

Chas just thinks he was disturbed.
I would say, in some cases, disturbed might be a matter of perspective. Shy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Don't get rid of self-edit! How will I fix my spelling errors if you do that? EEEKKKK!!!!

DoctorX was fun to watch spar with Ego® but I was curious to see if he would do anything else.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Yes, he mostly posted in the Atheism/Theism forum.

Yeah he hopped over from the skeptic forum, heard about us in one of Egors threads I think.

Perhaps he didn't like the restriction Chas gave him (not that it isn't reasonable).
