"so that said "slanderer" could perform a full and unadulterated character assassination on me"
Has there been a "full and unadulterated character assassination" on Robert? I have no idea what you are talking about.
Yanniru has made statements which support the idea that he believes in being "annoying" (in his own words)
on this forum. Applying a sociometric light on
the actual exchanges (before archive receives editing) will show Yanniru following vary many of my posts with strongly irritating verbiage,
devoid of content.
" Someone took it too personal. I assume it was quite a while ago, and soon ignited into a continuous stream of upset. It happens. I have seen it before..."
It is more useful to actually measure the behaviors. For example,
IF a careful count shows Yanniru has followed 300 or more of my posts with spammish content (foolish and annoying off-topic comments)
and I rarely follow his posts with foolish and annoying off-topic comments, we have one of the results of such a study.
Such a study is actually possible in an accurate archive. We would need an audit to be sure nobody had undue influence over editing the archives. Yanniru has made financial contributions to the forum. (I would like to have, but have not as yet). Can the webmaster certify legally and scientifically that the forum was not edited in a way that would skew the objectivity of the study?
"I believe, that this is one great discussion forum. Not only does wisdom ride here, but free flowing opinion does too. Some might think, that this post (this particular off topic post) does not belong here because it does not cover the "Suggested" path of topic."
Robert, I do not feel this is off-topic in any way!
"I see this particular forum being used as snail-chat between posters who are upset at each other."
Yes, this is too bad. By the way, can you tell whether we have been partitioned into several
astronomy.net forums based upon incoming IP addresses? If so, then it is by someone's design that Yanniru is stalking me. I certainly have not enjoyed his personal feedback to me in more than a few instances, nor those of may of his anonymous (and equally hard-talking) co-conspirators.
I knew things were coming to a head when I had to tell Yanniru to shut the hell up yesterday (in response to his continuing Big Lie directed toward me). Before determining much else, I think we have to find out if the webmaster has partitioned this forum and placed Yanniru and me together here.
Thanks for the moderate words, Robert.
