This week on the soap opera that is "As Kolob Turns..."
Apparently DCP thought he was being goaded...check out this response:

And, anyway, I'm not sticking around for a discussion here. Not interested. I simply wanted to call attention to Plantinga's review. (As I said on 14 February 2007, "from here on out, I'll limit my participation on this board to occasionally announcing publications that I think people ought to know about.")
So I fail your test (for the nonce, at least), but your test is both moot and irrelevant.
Still, since we're barking out demands for yes/no answers, I might as well bark one out to you: Have you read Plantinga's three volumes on epistemological warrant? Yes or no! Now!
My bet is that ole DCP ran to Mommy and Daddy and said "get that nasty Dude off my back for a few days".
As to the this suspension incident, I think it's definitely making a mountain range out of the first specks of dirt in an ant hill. The Mods should realize that The Dude isn't the run-of-the-mill critic (such as myself) and his long presence on the MAD board should earn him a little leeway. Sadly it appears that the thumbscrews are being used equally, and The Dude is just a little too much of a maverick (a definite plus in my book) for this new style of board they're trying to create.
It would be a great loss to them if they ban him or he leaves, but then again they believe the Book of Mormon is history, so I don't have much faith in their critical thinking skills. Hopefully they realize that he's an excellent critic and ostrocizing (spelling? I don't care at this time of the morning) him is not in the best interest of MAD.
The fun continues:

Maybe that was the point but who knows and there are other boards if demanding respect for our LDS posters is too overwheleming. You can bet your britches that certain posters will get the respect that we expect for all our LDS posters no matter how "mild" the unnecesary goads are. What do we have to do to make that more plain?
Notice the use of "there are other boards". Obviously this is nicespeak for "get thyself to another board apostate".
