I strongly advise that you consider how any such rule might be applied to yourself and your posts in respect of other forum users. Be careful what you wish for and all that jazz.

No, you have, on several occasions, 'remembered' people saying that they were supporters and believers in FTL travel, events that never occurred, as attested by somebody who read the relevant threads three fucking times each, and that's on top of your failed memory in terms of who said what in the free will thread (and the attendant conspiracy theory about some alleged former mod coming in and editing it, as well as deleting the edit history).

I've said nothing here that isn't factually correct and massively supported by evidence available to all (and indeed mostly seen by all). My campaign has not been one of denigration, but of attempting to get you to stop fucking lying.

And with that, I will not be engaging you any more, although I may take the odd pot-shot from the sidelines as and when I see fit.

More insults and innuendos. How surprising. Also, I only once had a memory failure, and then it was who made a particuloar post, not what the content was.

More baseless accusations of insults and appeals to a conspiracy theory...

Forget him - I've just reported his repeated accusations across 4 separate threads, none of which had anything to do with the topic. Actual evidence vastly outweighs non-existent-but-it-really-did-happen-promise evidence.

It's a bit rich to make the insinuation that I am the asshole around here. Also, the reason you have said nothing that isn't massively supported by evidence is that you haven't said anything much at all to me, other than to insult me, of course, and drag the thread off topic by that means.

Only way I know to argue with assholes:

The existence of just one racist is proof that there exists at least one person who could be reasonably classified as sub-human.
