    This is not the only thread that you've 'dropped your bombs' or aired your grievances in and we both know that. The reason you are being spoken to in this thread in this manner, is because of your accusations and tone, I would have the same conversation with anybody who approached us in the way that you have.

    I will not be replying to, or approving any further messages in this vein in this or any other thread, as I will say again--the threads are not designed to be used in this way. If you wish to speak to the Moderators or to Admin further regarding this matter please feel free to do so in an appropriate fashion-via P.M.

    Okay, first of all, I don't like the implication I was being "nasty" to Dio and if he felt that, I am sorry. I stand by what I said there. It was a poke at him that he said everything BUT an apology which was called for. So, i said he choked a little bit on that apology part. I guess I should've put a winky guy behind it when I posted that and in no way had nasty intentions. Sometimes I don't feel I have to insult someone's intelligence by adding a winky guy, but I guess things do get lost in translation on a message board.

    If anyone has any issue with anything I say, they can ask me. Don't fill in the blanks for them Walter and don't try to "guess" my intentions of tone and content. I can speak for myself. And I can stand by what I say and explain myself. This isn't me being nasty, this is me stating a fact.

    If you (or anyone for that matter) had ever been banned, you wouldn't be here now posting even under a different account name. Once someone has been banned, it's a zero tolerance policy for coming back. My recollection is that you had your problems at the same time as a lot of people when vBulletin had updated their software and that was one of many reasons why we stopped using it. Solutions had been posted in the Website area for all to read even if they were not logged in. I have no idea if you tried them and still had a problem but am not going to take any more time in this thread for explanations especially if you choose not to believe what you've already been told. You're back on the new Board because you were NEVER banned.

    I had second thoughts about my post and erased it but the system won't let me edit a post without saying something... Soooooooo, something.

    Sorry moderators, apparently I can't offer opposing viewpoints without it being personal. Also, apparently you've all become my minions. I could have some fun with that ya know? Mee-yooowww ladies!!! HUBBA HUBBA!!!

    And guessing the new identity of an old friend was pretty easy actually. Things like that happen when you pay attention to others.

    Like Bachman :) Spotted Kingisms all throughout.

    RE: difficulties on logging in on old board. I had problems logging in to the old board, in the end had to use a 'backdoor' approach to entering my password. Poor Srbo couldn't even log in AT ALL for months. It was a friggin glitch and thank goodness it was corrected with this new system.

    Cool! Thank you - I will try to watch but hubby always wants to watch the local news on CTV at that time so I may need to go on-line :cheerful:
    Edit - so it is NOT on TV? I am a bit confused (as usual). I guess I can always catch it later if we are eating supper at that time.

    Me and Dio are fine. We may spar some in the politics, but we understand each other now. He understands the difference between us banging on each other's views and banging on each other is a personal way, like your genetics, etc. I am sure we will have it out again over things. But, we both know it isn't meant to be personal now, it's just passion over our thoughts and the luxury of having others to discuss them with.

    And I don't get special treatment. you can ask any of the mods you'd like. I was slapped for my comments and fully agreed they were out of line. I volunteered to be banned for a period they saw fit if that would resolve the issue and be fair to all involved. I essentially told on myself. But not once, did I then, nor have I EVER emailed one of them and asked for a resolution or flagged a post or reported someone. If you could read the original thread between Dio and I involving the Native American stuff, you'd see I pointed out that it was offensive and openly said there if you want details, Mods, please email me. DJ can forward the reply to her email, saying, I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANYTHING TO BE DONE, I just want you to understand WHY it was offensive to me. why did she email me, because this has NEVER happened before in my time here. So she knew I was serious. I don't cry wolf, and up til now have mostly avoided religious threads, because any contrary opinion or question is immediately seen as an attack and people get sh!tty with you right away.

    But what i will not do is not reply to this idea that science and religion are the same thing. Sorry but that, to ME, is just silly.

    The debate is online. I'm not for sure but I think you're 5 or 6 hours ahead of eastern time so the debate would occur at like midnight or 1am your time. I think the SKMB's time stamps are eastern time if that helps :)

    I'm going to go find Chuggs and just watch the rest of this board from a safe distance with her.

    No, I don't think so, either. That's why it seems kind of pointless to me, except as a PR thing for their 'museum'. I do think Mr. Nye is very sincere, but misguided. It's pretty hard to make someone see light who has glued their eyelids closed.

    Why am I always late to the party? :confused:

    And what the hell (to keep things on topic ;)) did I do? I like and enjoy everyone here... the good, the bad and the ugly, and have learned to roll with the punches. An unfortunate holdover from my hippy days (sure wish they could invent a pill to cure that :rolleyes:)

    (and no problems with anything you said Dana Jean... I embrace the snark :tongue-new:)

    My concern is any technical difficulties that might come up on Bill Nye's end will be attributed as an act of God.

    Geezy Pete....a guy misses a few days on the board and all kind of excitement takes place. Not that it matters but trying to get back on topic. I am a Christian that believes in Creationism and Evolution. I believe both sides have some valid points and some things they are a little confused on. This topic could be discussed until the cows come home and most folks are not going to change their views. To each his own.
