Gravatars sound awesome. It was totally worth pissing off the entire RD.net forum community for all these cool new gadgets. Hope you are proud for bringing shame upon the RDFRS.

Gratitude, Ophelia? I don't think you'd be giving gratitude if you had your account and every contribution you ever made deleted. 'Pony up'... hmmph!

I'd like to second Topsy's post. The reporting in the media was stunningly inaccurate. I had heard about the sheer unprofessionalism of the British press before, of course, but I wasn't expecting them to get it so, so wrong. The lies published in papers like The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph all need to be withdrawn, because they have done irreperable harm to both the reputation of Richard Dawkins and the community who helped make this site what it is today. I think the way we have been made to look like the scum of the internet is an absolute disgrace.

I am very happy Richard made this post, however I think the behaviour of RDF staff (either Josh, or Andrew, or both) needs some explanation. By behaviour I mean the deliberate sabotage of the forum by way of deleting user accounts and posts, including Mazille, a moderator responsible for the science-writing award.

It is those acts that have caused me to lose my confidence in RichardDawkins.net. The changes themselves do not bother me; there are other forums out there and I was still intending to come here for news updates. It was the hostile stance taken by Josh and Andrew that angered me and while I don't expect Richard to apologise, I do think investigation is needed.

But to end on a positive note; I am glad that the forum will be archived, as there are many posts on there (particularly in the Science and Debunking Creationism forums) which hold a great deal of value.
