Debunking the web, one uneducated corner at a time.

Month: September, 2012

Due to Twitter’s Incompetency, I Have a Backup Twitter for Debunking

I have opened @debunkery on Twitter, with the name “Debunking Stupidity.” Apparently, from the form mail I have gotten from them, mentioning with @ people on Twitter unsolicited (which is never defined in their terms) can lead to suspended accounts. So I will not be engaging the morons directly. Retweeting stupidity, pointing out why it’s stupid without @mentioning the person, and possibly collecting the tweets to post on this blog.

It’s really stupid that these idiots love spouting their nonsense, but the moment it gets challenged, they run to the block/spam buttons on Twitter. Can’t let any other ideas into those heads of theirs.

Anyways, here’s the new avatar:

Twitter Support Lacks Competency

I now have four tickets closed in the past twelve hours with Twitter Support. They all have this form letter as the closing response:

Hello,

This account was suspended for sending multiple unsolicited messages using the @reply and/or mention feature. These features are intended to make communication between people on Twitter easier. Twitter monitors the use of these features to make sure they are used as intended and not for abuse. Using either feature to post messages to a bunch of users in an unsolicited or egregious manner is considered an abuse of its use, which results in account suspension.

For more information about these features, please visit our @Replies and Mentions help page:

I have now un-suspended your account. Please note that it may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal.

Be sure to review the Twitter Rules, as repeat violations may result in permanent suspension:

Thank you,

You can see for yourself that @idebunkforme remains suspended…

I even asked for something other than this form letter for the fourth ticket. As a response, I got the form letter. Incompetent support people.

The tickets are 6168748, 6200087, 6202304 and 6202334.

Another Logic Flaw of Atheism+

As my friend said on Skype today:

If thinking any Arab is a potential terrorist is Islamophobic/racist, isn’t thinking any man is a potential rapist sexist?

I doubt any Atheism+ defender would agree.

Your Daily Dose of Creationist Stupidity

Today, we have a creationist moron with 167 subscribers (at the time of this posting) challenges Richard Dawkins to debunk his claim. That claim? Since Darwin was not a Christian while on the voyage of The Beagle, evolution did not start with an objective foundation, and therefore cannot be science. And if Dawkins does not respond to this creationist’s challenge, it’s the nail in evolution’s coffin.

Not shitting you.

@idebunkforme is suspended… again

Tonight I took on a really absurd woo peddler named @ShinseikoAiRoku, who believes that all of the energy in the universe comes from a source, a spheroidal entity outside of the Matrices of Time, named Yunasun. This entity’s location is known, and broadcasts at 33YHz.

No, I’m not making this up. See for yourself: http://bit.ly/QV7l1L

After threatening me with a libel suit for calling her work woo and saying she wasn’t a scientist, as well as claiming that she will be publishing her highly certain data in journals in the years to come. And she’s self-educated since she excelled beyond the curriculum at whatever school she was at. And the brain can detect the waves for Yunasun. And governments have already been using her work. And earth’s not the only planet with sentient life.

Blocked by a woo peddler like this…

Help Us Raise Money for Medecins Sans Frontieres

This weekend, I, as part of SkepticTV, will be helping dprjones and many, many others raise money for the very important charitable group, Medecins Sans Frontieres.

You can find out more at the Facebook page for the 24 hours where so many talented YouTubers and more won’t stop chatting, discussing and answering live calls until we can get every last possible monetary unit we can for MSF.

Hope to see you this weekend!
