Wow. I thought Fidel was just being paranoid about the mods.
Catchfire, in what way was this latest thread "pointless" and in what posts of this thread in particular did you find "personal attacks"? There was no argument occuring at the time you closed this thread. It was a completely arbitrary and unfounded decision of yours.
I had just shown how Pants completely misunderstands Newton's Third Law, and why he has not been able to successfully defend the NIST/Bazant hypothesis. Were you upset about the fact that Pants' knowledge of physics was shown to be shockingly poor?
With all due respect, I would like Maysie's and oldgoat's opinions on this. Not on the threads in general but on this thread in particular, and why Catchfire arbitrarily chose to close it.
