    There is also "The mods may also take action against cut-and-pastes that are extremely long, [..]" but in this case I am not, at this stage, inclined to.
    If you are thinking of changing your wording, the word you are probably looking for is rebut - from the French reboter (to thrust back, to butt).

    As to the length of the post in question (#4904 in the climate change thread), it followed an accusation from Patrick Byrom (#4901) "that it's clearly pseudoscience."

    My view was, and is, that the best way to rebut such an accusation is to let the accused speak! Whether or not the rebuttal achieved its aim is a matter for the adjudicators.

    My initial post on this matter (#4882) was not long and simply pointed readers to the source material. It is my submission that #4904 should be seen in the context of the accusation that preceded it. It is also my view that the only way to properly rebut the arguments of Mototaka Nakamura is to respond to them directly.

    Seems OK at the moment to me. I don't have much faith in it remaining so.

    Dr Moderator, thanks so much for allowing a bit of T...p in shoutbox - this guy is going to bring down western civilisation so we just can't deny him headlines. He is more dangerous to USA than all commo threats combined. I hope his name allowed once in this pigeon box this time.

    That came with a tag "for now". If you gratuitously overuse it there you'll be banned from mentioning him there too.

    By the way, another site I post on (pollbludger) has a rule that if you block another poster you're not allowed to gloat about it.

    I'm not intending to implement such a rule here but I mention it for interest.

    I can see the point of blocking a poster who is specifically trolling you. But when a poster is simply taking part in a discussion, it seems pointless, because unless you block everyone else you're likely to see the offending posts anyway (a regular complaint on Pollbludger!)

    In Elliott's case, he seems not to be after a discussion where people reasonably present evidence contrary to his a priori position, but an echo chamber. A private message group with his nuthuggers might be a better fit.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I've never understood why people post in a public forum, and then get upset when other people disagree with them. As you say, a private group (on Facebook, perhaps) would suit ER much better.

    Is it possible to unsubscribe from a specific thread so that it doesn't appear in your New Posts page every time a post is made?

    Note on quoting for AC - if adding bold tags you need to make sure the bold tag is closed before the start of the closing quote tag.

    [/B][/QUOTE] not [[/B]/QUOTE]

    that was done on my phone with tech dificulties and was getting as upset as Fischer's book made me
