Peterson continues to stain his own good name and exhibit bad faith by allowing comments like this to go unmoderated -- virtually every day -- on his blog.

As of course you know, quite unlike Tanner, Meldrum, Colvin and you, Lou has never libelled anyone.

Your Traitors and Haters website promotes, promulgates and propagates bigotry.
Comments like this continue to appear, unmoderated, by one of Dr. Peterson's closest friends on his living room blog, over 6 months after he gave his good word -- in a private contract directly linked to soliciting a generous Interpreter donation -- to seek to purge such trash talk on his personal venue. Peterson appears incapable of making an honest, good faith effort to deliver on that promise, which he sealed with "I keep promises."

You don't, Dan. You continue to break your promise every day. Show some good faith by strongly and publicly asking Mr. Kiwi57 to stop the trash talk with such labels as "hate site" and "traitors and haters website". You promised, and you said that you keep promises. If Kiwi57 values your good name, he'll see this and/or your encouragement, and knock it off.

Like his own church teaching direct lies out of contexts history, so Peterson follows suit. His own hate blog is proof he is a paid Mormon apologist who will stop at nothing to score points imagining it elevates his own godhood in an imagined after life. To expect anything else out of BYU paid apologists is truly to ask the impossible.

It’s a possible explanation, Philo.

I did not force Dan Peterson to enter into our contract. He made the choice from multiple options presented in private emails.

The contract was real.
His promise and good word were real.
The money I sent to Interpreter was very real.
And now Dan’s duplicitous bad faith is also evident and real. For all the world to see. What a shame, when all he has to do to make his good word “good” is to simply not say mean things, and encourage his blog users to also not say mean things.
A man’s word is his honor. Does Dan Peterson have any left?
We shall see if he chooses to turn this lie around in time.

Dr. Moore:

Do you think that this is also a (subtle) admonition directed at Kiwi and Midgley?:
DCP wrote:I'm asking everybody here to ignore them, more or less. Occasionally, I feel it necessary to respond (e.g., when, as they recently have, they level very grave accusations of anti-Semitism and religious bigotry against me). Still, on the whole, I hope that they will be ignored. I absolutely don't want their message board and its themes to dictate the tone or focus here in the comments section of my blog.

There is a fellow over there who made a substantial donation to the Interpreter Foundation with the expressed accompanying hope that I would do what I could to tone things down between his board and the comments on this blog. I'm trying to do that. (I keep my promises, and not only as a matter of public honor.) I have no control over that place, of course. The fury against me and you, and so forth, burns fiercely there and is likely to continue to do so until sometime after both you and I have been gathered to our ancestors. But I do have some influence here.

I think that giving Moksha and Shades each a time-out has helped in that direction, and I'm willing to do so again, and even to make their departure permanent -- and to broaden the net beyond the two of them -- if continued misbehavior makes it necessary.

That said, I believe that they're both capable of better things than they've been showing us here, and I hope that they'll choose to improve their behavior and to stay.
It was actually said in response to Midgley.
"[I]f, while hoping that everybody else will be honest and so forth, I can personally prosper through unethical and immoral acts without being detected and without risk, why should I not?." --Daniel Peterson, 6/4/14

Oh my.

That does not sound like the agreement Peterson made.
Dr. Moore:

Every time he makes or allows comments derogatory to MormonDiscussions.com, he is dishonestly acting in bad faith to our contract.
And Peterson definitely does NOT “keep his promises.”

Your Traitors and Haters website promotes, promulgates and propagates bigotry. It does so intentionally and by design; namely, by your design. Be proud of it, Shades. It has succeeded in doing exactly what you set it up to do.

In what way is Peterson trying? Did he sigh loudly when Kiwi posted the above? Or did he “tut tut” at Midgley’s post? Is that what constitutes keeping one’s promises to Peterson? Or is trying and failing good enough? Such dishonesty.

I'm not sure that this is altogether true, Philo. My understanding of the events is that there were a few folks at FARMS--notably Brian Hauglid--who stepped up and called out Schryver for his behavior, but that there were still some people--DCP and Paul Hoskisson, perhaps--who were sticking up for Schryver, but the Powers That Be ultimately sided with Hauglid.
Once they read MsJack's thread, I imagine the Maxwell and BYU administrator's own conscience would permit no other course of action.

I think that giving Moksha and Shades each a time-out has helped in that direction, and I'm willing to do so again, and even to make their departure permanent -- and to broaden the net beyond the two of them -- if continued misbehavior makes it necessary.
While we were the recipients of the bad behavior by Sic et Non regulars, we were certainly not the underlying cause of that behavior. It felt more like Trump trying to treat COVID-19 with bleach.
