Patience Expired

Comment moderation is being activated for this blog.  All comments will now be reviewed before being posted.  Comments guilty of any of the following will be blocked:

1) Ad hominem attacks.  Personal insults directed at me will not be tolerated.

2) Threats, no matter how veiled.  No more "You're going to hell comments."  Even if you believe that I am, comments like that serve no useful purpose.  Same with "God will judge you" and similar things.

3) Repeating refuted claims.  I would call this the "Thoughts For Young Men Rule" if I wasn't still creeped out by the pedophile connotations of that name.  Even the most cursory examination of my recent exchanges with this person shows a pattern of making the same bogus claim over and over, and I'm sick of it.  It's a waste of time.

Make your claim and support it.  If I refute it, you're welcome to address my argument doing so.  But until you can overcome the objection, you don't get to keep claiming the same thing.

I want this blog to be an exchange of ideas.  But as soon as we're going round in circles, the conversation's over.
