Yes, it’s another one of these. Sorry, all.
Here’s a question that I feel important to ask based on the current “looming crisis in human genetics” thread in GD. tomndebb makes a modly note at brickbacon;
It seems to me that tomndebb managed to stealth insult, likely entirely without active malice, several unnamed posters there. I was under the impression that, while it was acceptable to insult a group that may contain posters, it was unacceptable to insult a group that consists of only Dopers.
Oddly enough though, i’d say this was the lesser of the two problems. After some more general acrimoniousness, Marley23 makes another modly note directed to brickbacon.
Now, Marley clearly says he only agrees with **brickbacon’**s characterization of Chief Pedant’s posts, not of **CP **himself, so I don’t think there’s any rule-breaking per se. That said, it seems a bit unreasonable to me for a mod to put forth their own personal views on a debate in a post marked as moderation. When the mod hat is on, posts of, essentially, “I agree with you in part, but stop being a dick about it” seem a wee bit too much of mixing of roles.
