Bob, he's going to ban you because he doesn't like you at all. He said in IRC. :-/

I know, strangely he referred (in my absence) to me as one of those "really annoying people" along with Bede.

I've only ever really spoken to him once, which was in this thread: http://skepchick.org/skepticsguide/index.php/topic,13447.30.html

Apparently the fact that we disagreed was enough to put me on his shit list, despite the fact that (IMO) I presented my arguments fairly civilly. We briefly discussed the matter on IRC, but he didn't seem to want to talk in any depth. I think he was at work.

Ach well, I'm fairly sure what I said wasn't bannable, but I guess we'll just have to see.

At the very least you should say hi to the secret service for me when they show up at your door...

Thank you all for participating!
I'll be creating the forum and moving recent topics to it later today.
I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
