Dear Webmaster and Esteemed Grapplers:
I would not wish to chase away a high class of
participants. I will happily yield and cease my eruptions if that will help the webmaster's business.

I am the one who "Genie" blames. A few observations:
...IF these scientists and researchers are especially interested in "Science and God" topics
...THEN we might expect them to have "researched" this forum by skimming through the posts.
"When I returned and reviewed the board, I was astounded at the immaturity of content. It seems like at least 2/3 of the posts here are created by a single person and are nearly devoid of any real content."
This shows me "Genie" has only reviewed the board's several years of content enough to make a horribly inaccurate estimate of how many posts one person has contributed. If our posts are rated "immature" by someone with no posted resume' and who posts almost no content, should we quiver in our boots?
I am sorry to say that the whole experience was very upsetting and I am just no longer interested in reviewing any of Stafford's material or attempting to have any colleagues or scientists that I know review it or ever return to this forum again."
Kinda throwing out the baby with the bathwater, ain't they?

"This is because I get very tired of trying to do the right thing in the face of cretins who would rather rail against their fellow human beings than reach out to them."
I feel we've just been "railed against" by a salaried person.

I get it. "Genie"'s leaving and God's still here.
