Pffffftttt!

So he deleted it post haste. So what? Lots of people saw it. The damage to the newbie is done.

Just send him to confession and he can happily continue on his path.

This is not one of them. The policing done here is by the community. That,s just the way it is here. I understand that this method of running a forum may not be for everyone, but saying the forum is something that it isn't won't make it so.

We do not ban people for being assholes. The sooner everyone gets that, the sooner we can stop having these threads.

A well regulated post being necessary to the security of a free forum, the right of the members to keep and bear insults shall not be infringed.

Isn't that the right to bear arms?

RE: The time to ban is now
I would be taking away your freedom if I demanded you follow a certain etiquette. If that etiquette is something you consider to be more valuable than freedom to say what you like, then that's cool. Like I said, there are plenty of forums like that.

Just visiting.

Well, I am a part of the community and I say that subjecting newbies to verbal abuse is counterproductive and makes TTA not a safe haven for newbies.

I have no say over the policies so don't say they represent me.

You all know I love TTA for many reasons and I am not going anywhere, but I am damn well going to speak up when something is hurting new atheists. We want them to feel that they have arrived at a place that understands where they are coming from, not a place of verbal abuse.

Simple as that.

I just hate it when threads derail and there are dozen pages of utter nonsense. Especially when it is a science thread. No room for shite in science threads.
