Unlike some other instances in the past, I think its more like what would have happened if the passengers of the Achille Lauro deciding that they've had enough of the hijackers and their demands, and threw them over the side instead of being polite and watching Leon Klinghoffer getting thrown over.

Dissembling behavior is unbecoming, BTW.

No Dissembling for you. Let's look at what you just said. You just drew an equivalence between the terrorists on the Achille Lauro and some people who have been banned from FR, implying they would have engaged in murder if they hadn't been. BTW, many of these people that have been banned are hard working scientists... one of whom is currently engaged in research to thwart terrorists. Ironic, isn't it? Do you have any idea how what you wrote comes across? And do you even give a d*mn?

Oh the irony of writing "scientists are Marxists" on a modern computer and sending it into cyberspace.

Care to name names? As to your antiterrorism points, I work on the B-1B. We drop bombs on terrorists.

Just throwing back a little of what the DC folks have been force feeding on this forum for some time. Does the word 'fundie', and 'muslim extremist' ring a bell. It better, because there is quite a history that could be dredged up, especially on threads with the first post starting out with the BS 'everybody be nice'.

"BTW, many of these people that have been banned are hard working scientists... one of whom is currently engaged in research to thwart terrorists."

Swell. I wish that individual success--honestly. But that does not mitigate in the least the reprehensible conduct (BTW, you are talking about the misnamed 'RightWingProfessor', whose own words here were something to the effect of regretting ever doing something for the right

"Ironic, isn't it? Do you have any idea how what you wrote comes across? And do you even give a d*mn?"

Actually, I don't. And the victim ploy is disingenuous, given the history. I'm not fond of folks who quote scripture in place of thought, but I despise those who decide to prey upon the civility of others. In other words, if you haven't seen it, watch the movie 'Witness' and watch the teen punks picking on an Amish person, knowing that said Amish will not fight back. Then along comes the character played by Harrison Ford.

And before you start running back to your site, keep in mind that there are folks on this forum who do understand science, and resent the crap that's been thrown about. Also keep in mind that some folks don't 'talk shop' here, and its none of your god d**ned business what they do for a living.

Now, you want to talk science, then do so. Once that becomes 'conservatives are retards' or 'conservatives are anti-science', a line gets crossed.
This blowup has been festering for a long time. I'm surprised its taken this long to start kicking some a**.
