    For falsely claiming that I had accepted his analogy with Trump's actions when I had in fact ignored it, and for continuing to carry on with off-topic blather about Trump, antichrist is completely banned from commenting on moderation of this site (including on other sites) for two weeks.

    Furthermore antichrist is not permitted to use analogies of any kind when commenting on moderation in the future.

    Given the way 2018 Isle of Man thread has gone, I suggest that it be renamed The Two Knights versus Pawn Endgame and placed in the Chess Training section. So far, there has been no discussion on the tourney as such, and there could well be more discussion on the endgame.

    The shoutbox was responding very slowly to posts this morning so I thought I had mistakenly pressed the wrong button so posted again.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Would not the new Extinctions thread be better in Religion and Science than in Politics, even though it was extracted from a Politics thread?

    Help wanted:

    I received a message on the screen purportedly from "Vlad" saying there was a private message for me and that if I was concerned about political correctness and not about the truth then do not open it. I cannot locate this message now. In my inbox there is a private message headed "Smantha talking rubbish" purportedly from "Vlad".

    I dislike the tone of the now lost message. How do I delete the item in my Inbox before I open it by accident?

    Is this some kind of spam?

    Go to Notifications near top right corner of screen, choose Inbox from the dropdown (it is often the only option). A list of Private Messages comes up. To delete any message (whether you have read it or not) click on the small square box next to the time and date for that message at the far right hand side of the screen. (Do not tick the box at the very top of the far right hand side as that ticks all the other boxes).

    Once you have ticked all messages you want to delete, click on "Selected Messages" on the right hand side at the bottom of the list of messages. A list of options including "Delete" comes up. Click the circle next to Delete and then click Proceed at the bottom of the menu.

    Is this some kind of spam?
    Probably not but if any CC member is receiving unwanted PMs from another CC member then they may send a PM to the other member just asking that member to not send them further PMs. Where a member asks another member not to PM them, it will often be treated as spam should the other member continue.

    I think we should wait a few months until his appeal is heard.

    I like to update titles as events change, especially when the event is somebody losing the Ashes.

    I've updated it to "convicted" but also noted "(appeal pending)".
