In order to make sense to those who have not ignored certain posters that like to play games with their ID's, and to help those who wish to know their histories.. A list by user numbers.. please feel free to add/correct.

73943 - Tall Tan Toned IQ 180- This was our Demon/4th Angel/Darwin's Worm/and others
9719098 - (banished: ID 9719098)This would be "Intelligent Design"
7787259 - (banished: ID 7787259)This would be "Guy".

I expected better! This is blatant targetting which is a form of censorship in its own right. I did request that this thread be hidden, instead it was "cleaned up".

Therefore I have taken a snapshot of the thread & including it in a formal complaint to the University.

Those who post in these threads should not try to hide who they are. That is very dishonest!

I agree and I commend the moderators for reinstating this post.

Siriusly.. we are simply attempting to keep track of who is who. Some of the name changes CAN BE attempts to be elusive. The information is public on SETI via the post histories, and no harm is intended nor resulting from trying to keep track of who is who.

We are just trying to help. Is something wrong?

So introduce a new rule stating that user names are not to be changed or make it so that they cannot be changed.

As it stands, it's still blatant targetting & if I log on 24 hours from now & see this thread still active & public that complaint which is already written will be posted to the university.

Evern better, ban them until they see sense. Would have been a lot simpler!

Yes, it's blatant targetting, come up with a better solution. If people are taking offense with what I've posted, I suggest you all go to the history books & look up & study 1933 - 1945.

Name changes are not against the rules. And I agree with that, until it is abused to muddy things up and try to make it difficult to know who said what.

I am not saying that is the case here. Merely making it easier for people to keep track. Feel free to write whatever letters you wish. I am just glad I do not have to read them.

Freedom of speech is a two edged sword.

Sirus, so you seem to openly support intellectual dishonesty.

That is quite correct but when individuals are targetted, that's not freedom of speech. Come up with a better solution!

No I do not, but you seem to accept that "the ends justifies the means"

I'm terribly disappointed in you all!

You're no better than Sattler and his improper method of complaining....

Sirus, I quote you, "It seems sensibilty has died. & this thread just confirms that opinion!" and your position confirms your statement.

Okay the thread is getting a bit out of control. Besides the normal rules,
discussion of name changes only to help facilitate rational discussions elsewhere. Thank you!
