Thought I'd kick this off with this exchange between Brenton and another poster, whom Brenton had previously lined to Hitler (note:  this comment made after the notice of moderation went up; pertinent text sequences in red):

John Samuel Brenton, that's funny. Great accusation. Untrue, of course. A true sceptic might try and find out who I am by using an alternative route. I'm not John Milsom. Honestly.

As for censoring you, not me again, assuredly. But you are a spammer so you have to expect it sometime. If you were more cogent and read what you posted the board administrator might be more forgiving.

If you'd like to apologise for accusing me of multiple persona, or for earlier comparing me with Hitler, that'd be appreciated. It would raise you in my eyes.

Brenton Roberts You belittle people in a condescending way, your seem to think you superior to others, the comparison stands IMO... I may be wrong but you are yet to prove that to me...

And isn't your post above off topic?

A couple more from Brenton (made prior to the moderation going into effect):

Brenton Roberts ‎"Quite frankly, your continued positing of supposed feelings of superiority on the part of others (where non exists, I assure you) is quite indicative of feelings of inferiority on your part."

LMAO... now your using one of the first priniciples of psychology in an attempt to raise your simple mind above what it really is... pathetic...

A compulsive LIAR tends to like to judge others on the way they themselve are.... your prime example.... Daniel Balley...

Brenton Roberts Lionel Socks, your a moron, some people need to sleep and do other things in life rather than just dole bludge and live inside a web of lies... I will get them at my leisure, unlike you, who simply cannot "debunk" anything...January 28 at 8:25pm

Is Brenton gone then? He was a pain. And I bet he didn't spot the irony in his posts when calling others condescending and rude.

Not by my hand.  I accidentally banned Joseph Dance (but Alex said he could reinstate him if we chose to).  Brenton made about a dozen comments bitching about moderation, but once I posted the general warning he got positively nice.  Even made an apology to another poster!

Do we want to implement similar guidelines to moderation as exist on SkS?  I see a commenter has accused Mann of being "Ahhhh Lord of the tree Rings....an absolute phony!"

I just warned her.  I believe she just uncovered a loophole needing closing.

I'm sure the denialists will oblige us with other loopholes also needing closing.

She's posted borderline comments prior to this.  Someone to watch.

Just banned Marc Frazer after a nice run of link spamming:

Followed (predictably) by Marc's alter ego:

Why are you people cutting peoples comments & banning people ?? You trying to censor everyone ?? None of the skeptic sites block anyone - they believe in free speech - what are you guys worried about ?? You got something to hide ??

He didn't really say that none of the skeptic sites ban people, did he?

Yes he did.  And I personally cannot see his, Brenton's nor their Anti-SkS pages they have formed (they've blocked me pre-emptively).

Earlier today, I banned Brenton Roberts. His recent foul-mouthed diatribes were way too offensive.

JH, just try and post an example here of the comment(s) warranting banishment before you banish them.

 

That being said, Brenton was overdue.
