I've been wondering the same thing.

I think the forum is a more welcoming and inviting place without him. Just my opinion. Persons who believe themselves to be infallible can put off even the most sincere person in a discussion, stifling any other opinion.

We discussed this among the moderators, if you will remember.

I left the forum for a large period of time because I felt that I couldn't post in a serious section of the forum without being ridiculed in the rudest manor possible by SophieC. What with him and some strange posters in Just Chat that upset many of my fellow forum members I took a very long break hoping that things would settle down. I returned in the new year and have been really enjoying posting all around the forum. I've had no silly or nasty comments about my posts even when I get things slightly wrong, people have corrected me politely and I have learnt from these mistakes.
I'm glad he has gone as I don't want to be called rude names every time he doesn't agree with something I've posted. If he returned with humility I would be happy to have him back.

He was polite enough to me, but I don't think I was here long enough to really notice it towards other people. It's a shame you felt that way :(

I sincerely doubt both. :D

No, but seriously, I'm very bad at looking at other people's relationships & how they affect each of them!

As she has a right to be. The post following hers was plain rude.

Well judging from replies and general feeling people don' want him back ln here.I can well understand why, if this forum promotes itself as friendly and inviting place to discuss anything science related, then people who seek to patronise and ridicule others should not be welcomed IMO.
Why people feel the need to intellectually pee on others is beyond me, perhaps it is aimed only at those who are not into ego worship or sycophants.

Seems it's already stirred Chemistry4me, just trying to see what people mean.

Umm... I rather miss him.  I thought that he was able to put up some very good arguments in areas where he was very well informed, and which required a jolly good argument to refute or debate.

But then my personal feelings are pretty much bomb proof and I tend to find any personal attacks, especially when just restricted to words, rather amusing, old cynic that I am (for if someone resorts to personal attacks then to my mind they've already lost the argument).

C4M, it wasn't just that thread. I can cope with people being rude on the odd occasion but he made me feel like I couldn't post anything in the serious sections of the forum. I do occasionally post the correct answer and I do have some good questions to ask. I don't always think like a full blown scientist as I'm very creative and a divergent thinker. My creative side often confuses the concrete thinker that is stuck in his box.

It didn't coz you didn't call me a rude name.

I seem to remember most of SC's insults were in another thread and came completely unprovoked.

I liked him, or her as i thought first  *Blush*
Anyway, I don't think he was intentionally rude
(Haven't checked the thread yet:)

But sometimes we all have a 'down period' when things seems more serious, and our responses becomes more, ah, intensive?

I know i have, so :) don't take me to seriously if I rub the wrong way at times, okay?
It's divine to be right, but I ain't. I'm just a human ::))

And yes make it lady, I like you too.
You are a gal?
I hope???

Ah.

saunterer away, whistling innocently while looking at ? . . . .   .
