Can I insult the stupid rules then? You know the ones that interfere with freedom of speach and all that.

How does your CFI decide what is an insult? Is it by Sharia law by any chance?

If someone rants off track on a thread is that not an insult to the author? My above thread was about the suitability of the label “humanism” and not intended to be an in depth engineering tomb on space flight engineering. Personally I think that my response was well tempered and appropriate. If you think that is an insult then perhaps it’s time for a nappy change. What is the penalty - 1000 lashes and 5 years in prison - like the poor sod in Saudi today who had the misfortune to talk about his sex life?

Grow up CFI or close down.

I suggest you familiarize yourself with the rules, HERE, in particular the Preamble and Rules (1) and (6). There are rules to participating in this forum.

I prefer to suggest that you get lost.

Scientist, please refrain from insults. They are against the rules.

It wasn’t an insult - it was an alternative to a definite destination. Getting lost!

Certainly not you.

I’m sure you will find those with IQ much higher than the average, which is 100 and giving an insult when a mod just warned isn’t such a good idea.

Yeah, and he went crazy on us right as I was getting ready to deliver the coup de grace, Lawrence Krauss’ explanation of why interstellar (much less intergalactic) travel is impossible. I’ll have to save that one for another thread.

I’ll go along with that Mriana, but isnt it a bit hypocritical that occam (supposedly a moderator) can return insults (above) wihtout due comment ? Or is he allowed to make and break the rules - you know like the pigs in animal farm?

Yes, Occam - you are an insult to my intelligence.

Start another thread then, but meanwhile I look forward hopefully to someone contributing something relevant to this one.

You are a victim - just profoundly unaware of the fact. When you start to use polysyllabic words I’ll let you know.

By the way, what is the definition of an “insult” in this forum? Is it that you are not allowed to challenge any of the established members - even though they might be first class morons?

What part of N.O.T. A V.I.C.T.I.M. are you not understanding? Is the word ‘victim’ too large for you to properly define. In the words of Inigo Montoya “You keep saying that word, I do not think it means what you think it means”. cool grin
