Point one. From the Open Letter to the Secular Community, April 2:
Here are some things that we plan to do to make our online secular community a place where we can exchange ideas and views instead of insults. We hope that others may also find this approach useful.
- Moderate blogs and forums. Any organization or individual engaged in blogging or administering a forum has an obligation to moderate comments. Slurs, threats, and so forth beget more of the same. Keeping our online spaces free of these elements creates a civil climate that makes it much easier for people to engage issues productively.
Point two. From comment # 214, by one “MosesZD”, on Ron Lindsay’s “Rebecca Watson can be compared to North Korea” post, May 18:
Do yourself a favor and read Paul’s (PZ Myers) blog and how he’s trashing Vacula who is at your conference. Vacula is one of many people that he’s spent quite some effort and time demonizing and flaming over the years. Doing his absolute best to destroy Vacula over something
See how he describes Vacula and his inability to get interviews for Brave Heart Radio.
Why is this? Because PZ Myers, Watson, Benson, et. al., have spent close to two years lying about him and demonizing him because he doesn’t lockstep to their non-skeptical, non-atheist belief systems.
I don’t choose that comment because it’s the worst in terms of slurs and threats but because it makes a specific false accusation against me. I haven’t lied about Vacula. I have documented his harassment of me.
