Conversation,charlatans,cowards and censorship


The Conversation has degenerated further this week using editorial privilege to protect the abusive posts of the regular denizens on the blog. A current article attempting to justify data tampering by the BOM which was exposed by scientist Jennifer Marahosi and Graham Lloyd of the Australian has led to abuse and name-calling by low-lifes infesting the blog.  I posted the following expecting the Conversation to take action which they did. They removed my post!!!
The Conversation is setting a low standard with Alice calling  Jennifer a coward and a charlatan and Mike Swinbourne calling Graham Lloyd and Jennifer liars . They are both professionals with a point of view and should not be subjected to abuse which is probably actionable.


The offensive comments:

I(f JM had any serious concerns, she could easily find both forms of data raw and homogenised and set out her concerns in an organised methodical scientific manner, which includes submitting her findings for peer review.
As a research fellow she would be very aware of the correct way to conduct scientific research which includes any findings which question current science.
The fact that she has not submitted any finding to a current scientific publication, rather to "the Australian" or more particularly the discredited climate writerGraham Lloyd, and accused BOM of engaging in propaganda and corruption, means that SHE has set a low standard which does not reflect on the conversation or me, at all.
Yeah she's a charlatan, and a coward.
She could submit her findings to a publication for peer review, instead of using a blog, a newspaper, and a few gullible deniers to do her dishonest dirty work for her, by way of publicising unproven scurrilous accusations.

Well Neil, if you want answers to your questions you could do something different to those liars Marosey and Lloyd and do some actual research.

The email censoring my comment!
Your comment on 'No, the Bureau of Meteorology is not fiddling its weather data' has been removed.

There are several reasons why this may have occurred:

1) Your comment may have breached our community standards. For example it may have been a personal attack, or you might not have used your real name.

2) Your comment may have been entirely blameless but part of a thread that was removed because another comment had to be removed.

3) It might have been removed for another editorial reason, for example to avoid repetition or keep the conversation on topic.

For practical reasons we reserve the right to remove any comment and all decisions must be final, but please don't take it personally.

If you're playing by the rules it's unlikely to happen again, so feel free to continue to post new comments and engage in polite and respectful discussion.

  1. I always figure that, the more abuse you derive from these types of numpties and Jennifer will know this - the more slings and arrows they chuck at you - the better you're doing and damn well you know that you are on the money!
    If they [alarmists] are ranting and shouting at you - then think....................not only have you won the argument - you've exposed them to be the very opposite of what they pretend to; as we know in their infinite arrogance, all alarmists believe themselves to be the upholders of scientific enlightenment and noble expounders of the received wisdom..........................or not.
