Be fair mguertin, this was supposed to be a non-AGM thread, but MaccyD couldn't help himself.

I would agree to this too, but everyone else is contributing to the derailment.

To be fair, you'd have to admit that the OP tried to establish this as a "science except for the science I don't like" thread (for example, the evidence for the massive water-vapour cloud orbiting that quasar I posted is far more tenuous than the evidence for AGW), but okay, whatever. MacDoc pointed this out, which is admittedly not very polite, but entirely valid. And now you're all complaining about a thread derailment in which you are the most active participants.

So, rather than ranting about the fact that you don't like some of the science that is out there, why not try to contribute something to get the thread back onto a topic you're interested in discussing rationally?

I don't even know what you are referring to when you all say non-AGM (or is it AGW?) presumedly because I tend to avoid this area(?) ... but at this point there's more derailment posts than science posts. Either way it's a FAIL and I guess that's my cue to go elsewhere to find civilized discussions of non-mac related stuff yet again.

I suggest that we rename "Everything Else" to "Egos Abound" ...

Apparently you didn't see the http://www.ehmac.ca/everything-else-...rn-africa.html thread.

To be honest, I've been thinking of closing my account here for some time and move on. There are just too many "Type-A" personalities for my liking.

You can move on, but you can't close the account.

Horse shiite. For a supposedly learned man, you have trouble comprehending basic language.

Point of clarification (really didn't think most of you needed this sort of pedantic explanation, but apparently it's required):

I tried to establish a science thread on anything but GHG, which already has multiple threads filled with name calling, finger pointing, deceit, lies and some science. Was hoping to trend towards the latter here. The bright amongst you figgered that out. Thank you for your observations & support. Apparently, however, there aren't enough intelligent adults on these boards to hope for that drastic of a change, so, carry on.

For those of you intelligent enough to read & comprehend, and persistent enough to peruse through the garbage, I'm hoping you can find something here to draw a small modicum of satisfaction from or to post something interesting in.

Fine. Then go validate it in the GHG thread. As politely requested. And, when I say validate, then do so. Don't just drop some great steaming load in the middle of a thread with some snotty, holier than thou comment (don't forget dem rollin' eyes) and not bother addressing any of the comments or questions directed to you because that's simply beneath you.

Either that or you truly don't have any answers.

Either way, you end up looking like the north end of a southbound skunk.

Manny's not the only one considering leaving this Charlie Foxtrot...
