Re: Dwise1, Portillo, Percy Matter
Fine. If Buz disagrees with my suspicion and will provide confirmation of what exactly he means by "evolution", then he needs to do exactly that. But if indeed he is trying to pull "a fast one" one everyone by redefining terms out from under us, then he will have nothing to work with.
Sorry, Percy, but given the choice between creationists just not knowing any better and actually trying to be deceptive, I'm left with "Nobody could possibly be that stupid!"

Re: Censorship!
I concur.
Now if this were a Christian forum, then he'd be deleting messages at will and for no good reason, plus he wouldn't be leaving any evidence that the messages had ever existed. And he'd be disappearing folks left and right. Quite a difference here and it shows.

Re: Moderator editting?
We all need to proofread ourselves more. But one of the problems is that we don't see what we wrote, but rather what we were thinking when we wrote it, so most of our typos are invisible to us. I'm also a programmer and we can have an error in our own program that we cannot see, but as soon as someone else looks at it the error jumps right out at them. It's the same with proofreading ourselves. The only technique I have found to be at all effective is to read what we wrote out loud, word for word, even if it's still only inside our head.
As for the question of moderator editing, I'm generally against it. However, if it does prove to be necessary, then I would insist that the original text remain intact and that the editing be presented as a note suggesting a correction. IOW, the "service" could still be rendered, while at the same time honoring the original.

Re: Moderator editting?
Aye (upon pain of suspension). Because you have to actually read it. But deadlines do not always accommodate that method.
