Anyway, sorry for the derail.
“Chip” (kudos to DCP for that one) is not the sharpest.
OK, Chip, answer me a couple questions here. I’ve been posting on these boards for years now. Started out on the old FAIR board way back when. Posted for several years, on and off, on the FAIR/MADB/MormonDiscussions.com/MDD boards, but only started tohear about this sockpuppet business after I made posts praising Schryver’s FAIR conference address. Because, as I’m sure everyone must know, only a Schryver sockpuppet would possibly praise any of his work, right?
So what’s my motivation here? Why wouldn’t Will just post under his own name if he wanted to say something? I’ve seen people say that Nomad never posts except in support of Schryver. But a review of my posting history at FAIR/MADB/MDD would easily disprove that. You just don’t like the idea of someone speaking in favor of Will’s work. You want to believe that there is no way anyone
besides himself would do that, right?
How many different posters have now been accused of being Schryver sockpuppets? Got to be a dozen or more. It’s like a knee-jerk reaction here. But I was here long before any of this sockpuppet talk started. As I recall, when the poster “malaise” first appeared a few months ago, he was accused of being a Schryver sockpuppet, only because he spoke negatively about the MsJack smear thread. Read here
It’s all very entertaining in a way. I’ve always said this place is one of the most amazing examples of herd mentality I have ever seen. It continues that way. So carry on.
I’m only sorry that Will has now apparently retired permanently from the boards and won’t come here to “complete” me anymore. lol
I do look forward to his forthcoming articles, as well as those by Bradley and others. It’s looking more and more, to me, like the most interesting Book of Abraham debates are going to take place not between critics and believers, but between the believers themselves.
