Change of style?
    #885143 - 09/16/02 06:41 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

As a moderator of this forum I wish to do my best to serve you as anyone with authority of any type is truly more a servant than a master. As this topic does have spiritual ramifications I am asking the regulars here if they think I should post less or kid around less. I do not want people coming here and getting the wrong idea of this forum or the Shroomery because of my actions.

Let me know what you think. It is important to me.

Cheers,

We elected you because we like your style. Don't change a thing.

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man.  For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.  Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.

I dont post to this forum often but I do check in daily, so here is my two cents:
First of all congrats to you! And having read many of your posts I have never found you to be offensive in any way, or unkind to anyone. I think that those are among the most important qualities for a Mod. I myself have had experience (once) with a mod. who acted in a very unprofessional and rude manner when answering a post I made. I pride myself on trying to treat people with respect while still having fun and I think you act in much the same way.

Good Luck

i think we should remain ourselves... i don't see the point in posting less, or posting different just because we are mods...
we have always tried to be respectful to people, even if they don't deserve it... and if it wouldn't have been that way i doubt we would have been "elected"  :grin: the only thing i certainly am going to change is that im going to spend more time here...

I didn't foresee the possibility of a -1 + -1 + 0(?). I just hope it doesn't get out of hand... like the fat kid on the seesaw. I have neither the time nor the energy to waste on a balancing act...

Obscure enough?

hehehehehe... i love you too, sclorch...
anyways the belief of a moderator will make no difference... i will merely continue stating my opinion on things as i did before beeing a mod... we are not here to control the contents of the discussion, as long as it is spiritual and philosophical... we are here to watch out for offensive and attacking threads and posts, so that everybody can feel free to express his thoughts/feelings without beeing flamed...
my question to you is: why do you put it like this (-1) + (-1) + (0) and not (+1) + (+1) + (0)? ah well... it's all a matter of perspective... or are you afraid believers might take over the world?  :grin:

Thanks Ripple, you're a good month. *hic*

"I think that those are among the most important qualities for a Mod."

You know, if you think about it a Mod is only one letter away from being a Moe!

I wonder what it all means?

Anybody see my slippers and pipe?

Sclorch it's never obscure enough for me, but I like it.


Hey, how about:

Premise (C): the probability P(g_i) of the i^th gene g_i existing and functioning correctly in a breeding cohort is independent of all other P(g_j) with j not equal to i. P(g_i) is proportional to the probability of the mutation that gives rise to g_i. And remember, it is critical to a non-design theory of speciation that mutations are random, i.e. not correlated with each other.

Deduction (1): if (A), (B) and (C), then the probability distribution of intelligence P(IQ) should be, a priori, an exponentially decreasing curve, i.e. P(IQ) = a exp(-b IQ), where a and b are constants.  Because, roughly, the probability for a given level of intelligence IQ caused by N functioning intelligence genes is P(IQ) = [P(g_i)]^N = exp(- N (-log P(g_i))), where we have assumed all P(g_i) are the same for the sake of simplicity. [(P(g) < 1, incidentally, so -log P(g) > 0.] We can fancy this up by letting P(g_i) vary from gene to gene, but the outcome is essentially unchanged.

After all, vaporbrains said to drop some science stuff in here. :smile:

Might? They already have... they're just a different color than you.

Mr Mush-
I don't think genes dictate intelligence.

Mr_Mushrooms: Congratulations on becoming Kermit-like.

Sclorch: I don't think genes dictate intelligence.

Do you then believe that chimpanzees have the same potential intelligence as a human? The difference between them and us is the genes.

Happy mushrooming!
