Quote"Do forumers accept the assertion that Fermion is a hatemonger, or not?"Yes! He's been hate-mongering towards brownian motion and gaussian distributions ever since he showed up on these forums. He had some vile things to say about our beautiful, easy-to handle and perfectly symmetric gaussian distribution.

QuoteOriginally posted by: FermionI was a contributor to that thread and was sorry to see that people were deprived of the opportunity to read my counter-arguments to the hate-mongers.looking back, there was some hat-mongering in that thread.I seem to recall (it's been deleted so I can't check) that fermion made an allusion to jews being "racist bigots" while maelo accused several well-respected forumers of being in the KKK.That brings to mind the old definition that "a racist is a conservative winning an argument with a liberal".That's not the first antisemitic remark fermion has made here, and if past performance is any indication, it won't be the last

And read the Wilmott policy.some of us prefer to do things in the bright light of day unlike those you run off to the admin when they lose a debate.Once you join a debate, you should accept the outcome of that debate, win or loseTo be honest, I was winning at the time. It's just your buddy Errb was posting malware was the big problem as well as insulting mackbar. BTW your conclusions were basd on faulty logic; A ==> B !==> (!B ==> !A) (example takes Fermion's example). Errb seems to be a racist (at least his remarks) and that is what Fermion is referring to. You invert the logic every time, but I usually switch it back again Here's a good example of how brittle it is (your post):QuoteThe world's most populous dempcracy has been attacked by evil doers, and your side is defending the terrorists ??? this is demigogory So, if India had been Indonesia, would you have cared?
