The first sentence from the Forum Rules: "The primary goal of this forum is to provide a place for honest, educational, civil, and fun debate on the topic of origins. "
Whatever is going on is clearly incompatible with the stated rules.

1) This thread is not to be used for moderation complaints, that is to be taken up by PM only. Complaining publicly of moderation is itself a violation of the forum rules.
2) For the record, I do agree that if a post is edited it should be noted within the post. However, my preference is to avoid editing all together, but instead delete either the post or the person. In the example we have of fishbobÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s post where Ã¢â‚¬Å“in my opinionÃ¢â‚¬Â was added to his anti-AIG sentence, this is actually a perfect example of a post that should have quickly been deleted, it was completely worthless. I've let the moderator know.
3) When you complain publicly of forum moderation (or privately for that matter), it quickly brings attention to your posts. I therefore read many of fishbobÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s that I otherwise might not have, and he has been identified as exactly the type of person I do NOT want on this forum - so I quickly banned him, and yes, I enjoyed it. Most of his posts were worthless, and instead of answering questions he either equivocated or went on about how the post was wrong and evolution or old earth is true without really saying why. This is a complete waste of time for both the member he is responding to, and the readers. Here is a classic example of equivocation:
Fishbob's Evo-babble Post, one of many
Instead of dealing with the pop genetics of the problem, he equivocated on the definition of evolution.
Just to reiterate, the rules are there for a reason and generally rigid, but the primary goal of this forum is to weed out those who are here to waste other's time. Bottom line: Keep all members and all guest readers in mind when you post something - don't waste people's time!
PS. Just one more reminder - we are after quality, not quantity.
