The definitive history of Climategate.
A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
"my comments have a logical thrust and relevant element."
Do you also make sure you make at least a couple of spelling mistakes?
"I take issue about my posts being incoherent, As a point of principal, I ensure that they either directly respond to a post here, or make a relevant point. Regardless of opinion (you're nearly all wrong), I'm very careful to make sure my comments have a logical thrust and relevant element."
Your comments tend to be incredibly rude. That's the main problem. I understand that you hate us, but really, we're just trying to work this out, as you are. If you could make your points without injecting your hatred for us, it might really help.
A dialogue might be really fruitful, but it's just not possible when your words are so laced with venom.
I'm not a horrible person. Nor am I stupid. If you ever want a tour of Hidcote Manor Gardens then just let me know. While we explore the gardens we could have a good chinwag about life, the universe and everything. You could explain to me why I'm wrong about everything, and I'd have a go at responding. :)

Classic ad hom and filthy behaviour. Again, I wait and see whether any genuine honesty and scepticism will be applied to this comment.

I think the Bish's policy is the right one. It is nice to help troubled people, but not at the expense of wrecking the discourse of more fortunate ones. That way total confusion lies. Someone in more direct contact with ZDB needs to take the pastoral responsibility for her, not us.
Most of your posts are peevish, incoherent and rude, but your last one wasn't, which is probably why it's still there. Just try being civil more often and you may get somewhere. Why hate us? We're just trying to have a discussion...
Bish - sorry if this counts as F'ing TT.
You say you hate us. this comes across!!
Perhaps this is why you are not welcome at a private individuals blog, if you were a dinner party guest you would be asked to leave .. (and not invited back)
ie civil behaviour required between adults that disagree. None of my climate science friends hate me (they know my view) so what is your problem?
"If you've lost a substantial two hundred worder.."
Write it off-line with a simple editor like Notepad (I use Rough Draft, which is free and has some useful extra features) then the act of cutting and pasting into the comment box will automatically have saved it in the 'clipbard', where it is briefly held, or if it's a magnum opus, save the original. This adds seconds to the process and can save many more.
Well there we are. I don't know how long this post will last, but I was truly touched by Zed's last (probably now vanished) post.
That was wonderfully frank. And I think it really helps to understand where you come from, and what you are about.
Maybe that is one positive thing to come from this. Even though it will all disappear into the aether in a trice. :)
"How would I put it back up? I was conversing with people. Do you record your conversations? What archive do you think I should refer to?"//No, I don't record my conversations but generally I can recall what I was on about - unless I'm having a very bad day.. ;-)
If you've lost a substantial two hundred worder packed with links you've carefully selected, yep, that's a bit of a pain, but if it was just a bit of banter with a couple of quick points, it's not that big a deal to bash out the essentials a second time.
