Enough Spam

Sadly, the comments are being taken over by spamsters.

New policy is, unless they are directly addressing the points of the article in question. our friends are limited to one ad hom off topic post per thread. I will delete all subsequent spam posts.

      I agree that this is a pretty weird thing to do (although it’s good marketing–I saw interviews with some of those guys who were wearing obviously expensive shades–I thought at the time it was odd, but now I get it.)

      But I hafta say that it’s kinda amusing that you would add an off-topic comment to a post that complains about people posting off-topic comments. 🙂

        sour grapes

      • ChrisD says:

        Yeah, not really. It wasn’t my post that got censored, nor was it me that Steve was talking to (it looks like it now, but only because the post he replied to is gone).

      • Amino says:

        Censored is the wrong word. It’s called deleting spam.

        You guys are persistent in being off topic. It’s not just a little here and there. It’s a habit. I think Steven Goddard would like to keep threads from getting derailed by people who insist on talking about something other than things germane to the topic. Persistently talking about something that is not germane is called spamming. I don’t see him deleting comments that don’t agree with his viewpoint. If he did then he would have deleted comments from even Julienne. Not only is that not happening but she has even been featured here.

        Also, talking about something germane does not mean agreeing.

        Censorship does happen at global warming believer/advocate blogs. If you truly have a moral issue with censorship you should go to those web sites —we all know who they are— and there bring up the morality of censorship.

        If you really think censorship is not happening at those web sites that have notoriety for it then try this:

        pretend you are a global warming ‘skeptic’ and post comments there.

        See what happens.

        Oh, right. The post he deleted was explicitly on topic. It was a direct response to his own post The money quote: “the NASA article contradicts itself “.

        The response–now gone–said that the article is only contradictory if you don’t understand what radiative forcing is.

        Now, would you like to explain to me how that’s off-topic spam?

        And while you’re at it, maybe you could explain why <a href="https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2010/10/14/union-of-concerned-scientists-global-warming-affects-mental-health/#comment-5011&quot;?this is not.

        How about pointing to a few posts of mine that are off-topic? Thanks.

        Krap. I do wish WordPRess had a Preview button. Here’s the fifth paragraph, fixed:

        And while you’re at it, maybe you could explain why this is not [off-topic].

      • Amino says:

        You do a lot of pretending, ChrisD

      • ChrisD says:

        You do a lot of pretending, ChrisD

        Thanks for the generic comment that fails to address anything I said.

        Can you explain exactly how the comment I referenced is off-topic spam?

        Can you point me to the off-topic comments I’ve posted?

        Thanks.

    I’ll try to stop pointing out each time you cherry pick, but gee it’s really hard when it happens multiple times in the one post.

    • Brendon says:

      Actually, just to clarify, is calling you a cherry picker, when you really are cherry picking, really an ad hom?

      • Brendon says:

        Steve I have engaged in many of your posts and usually it ends with you not bothering to continue the discussion.

        Instead you seem to post a dozen new posts each day, many times repeating old mistakes like cherry picking out a short amount of ice extent data.

      • So what do you think about that article? Are you here for science or gossip?

      • Brendon says:

        I’m still waiting on you to explain why you chose the solar minimum as a time to consider the albedo effect of Artic sea ice loss.

        When we pointed out that the albedo would be affected back in June/July and that the sea ice then was well below the 1979-2000 average, you disappearred from the discussion never to return.

        This is common with you. Rather than admit you were wrong, you simply go off to another post to spread more confusion again.

        You’re not interested in the scientific discussion but instead wish to promote an air of doubt about AGW to your readers.

      • What does the solar minimum have to do with Arctic ice? There isn’t any short term correlation between the two.

      • Brendon says:

        I meant a time when the Artic has no sun.

        You argued that at this time of year it did not matter that the ice extent was well below average; that it would have no albedo affect because the sun was so low.

        But when we pointed out that this was not the case in June/July when there was plenty of sun, you didn’t bother to answer or acknowledge your mistake.
