« on: April 10, 2020, 02:40:47 PM »
Hello Neven,

i am lurker sinds 2010 on the ASIB and i am member number 16 on this forum.

I just want to use this thread to say: thank you for all your work and contributions.

I would feel enlightened if you stay as admin in the background to slap some moderators hands if needed. :)

There is a hell of a lot of catastrophizing about the economy from the right wing.
This is going to take a year or more to play out.
Once it is over and you either have herd immunity or a vaccine the economy will recover. Economy is just people doing stuff after all .
The dead can never come back, tens of thousnds of survivors will always forever disabled by the effects. .

As to the commentor some are disputing with.
Please just do what I did and add the idiot to your block list .
Saves me having to read you all pointing out how stupid it is .
I don't mind those like El Cid who are optimistic but still contribute sensible content  the terminally deluded are not worth the effort

From /r/Australia, a report on the effects of climate change back from 2007. Can anyone still argue the models don't match reality?

Made a photo collage out of a Sentinel 2 image and a photo produced by Ulf Hedman onboard the Oden, you can see the 3 small glaciers originating from Permin Land on Ryders Port side (Sentinel 2) and in the background of photo from Oden:

This situation is easy to handle. Don't give the fascists a forum.

I'm not giving them one, whether they really are fascist or not. I the case of Gumbercules, I haven't released his profile and I only let comments through when I believe they don't go over the edge. At some point, he either starts behaving instead of provoking, or he gets tired of having to wait for his comments to get released. The latter seems to be happening, though one can never be sure. If he goes overboard, he'll be banned and I have perfect arguments for doing so, that are hard for him to argue with.

I don't have a lot of time right now, due to personal circumstances, so don't go nuts if I don't moderate perfectly or instantly. Give it some time. In the end, only the Cryosphere threads are worth following and engaging in. The rest is pretty much irrelevant, and depend entirely on what you can get out of them for yourself.

This is all normal, in my view, and not worth getting upset about. Go out into your garden, and if you don't have one, get one, create one.

Given that this thread is for talking about the Forum in general, I have to announce that sadly my father passed away today, and so I won't be able to take care of things here for a week or so, maybe longer.

Yes, regular back-ups are being made, so it should be possible to restore comments.

Well I've been only by bicycle to work for two weeks now. It's really nice, but my body hurts everywhere. Transition is not so easy, good that there are week-ends to get some rest. I know times will make everything better, but improvement time is longer than expected. I only drive around 12 km per day.

"What is the goal of corporate power?"
To increase corporate power! Corporations are immortal entities which have no interest in human concerns, who attract the worst amongst us to serve them.

No, the main goal of corporations is to create revenue for investors, because that gets the CEOs and managers the biggest rewards. Total revenue of all corporations put together obviously ends up in fewer and fewer hands, as the yearly Oxfam numbers show. In other words: The goal of corporations is to increase and further concentrate wealth.

If you want to change that, you need to put a cap on wealth, ie how much one person can own. You can't reform corporations, because concentrated wealth will find a way around it. Through corporate power.

On another thread Neven stated:

"I would kindly ask you to go find some other place to do your thing. I think it would be better for you, and it would definitely be a lot better for me, because it's wearing me out and I don't want to quit this project just yet.

Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, the mainstream media, Corporate Leftists around the world, and even rehabilitated neocons, they're all with you to make things reality."

Whereupon some pearl clutching ensued, I gather, tho i missed most of it being sheltered by killfile.

Please guys and gals and those of other genders:

This is Neven's house. He has stated repeatedly that evidence based argument on the science threads are open to all, and he has acted in accordance. He has also repeatedly stated that he will moderate social/political threads, and he has done so. Apparently that annoys some who imagine this forum is their pulpit.

It is not. Start you own blog if you wanna post without moderation. Or find a forum on goofacetwit more to your taste. Stop bitching at Neven.

That's like going into a party and repeatedly pissing on the carpet after your host has asked you multiple times to quit, and then screaming at him for not letting you continue.
