Speaking of the sad state of science
A former researcher at Amgen Inc has found that many basic studies on cancer -- a high proportion of them from university labs -- are unreliable. C. Glenn Begley identified 53 "landmark" publications -- papers in top journals, from reputable labs -- for his team to reproduce. 47 were frauds.

Question/debate
At what point does it become bad form to not draw or cancel because of NMRs/CDs? It seems like it is almost inevitable to have at least one cd in live games, but is it bad to profit because of that and push on for a solo despite all the other players voting for a draw/cancel?

WebDiplomacy and The Final Crusade? (Game Proposal/Invite)
I think it's safe to say one of our most discussed/popular/maddening discussion topics here on the threads has been religion--one vs. another, atheism vs. theism, discrepancies between definitions of those identities (see: SC and I having a near-Jewish Civil War) so...anyone up for a game? Represent your denomination/branch of agnosticism/branch of atheism, we'll chat...have some wine...last players standing "win" The Last Crusade...? ;)

Player kicked out?
Looks like a player in our game got kicked out and someone took their place. The game is here: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=84494 The player in question is India, who was eighnjel or something like that, and is now timgard. India didn't log in all weekend but Argentina has never logged in and has not been kicked out. Is there any way to reverse this? Why did it happen? How do we replace Argentina?

How about I mod the forum. Any hate, trolling, etc... I see I silence. If the op posts it again because I silenced the thread, I ban. Maybe then you guys will appreciate the freedom and stop trolling and crapping up the forum. Thoughts?

Mod-a-Day Program
After listening to your suggestions about self-moderation, we've decided to try something new. Basically, we will give a user with a reasonable record mod privileges for one day to help keep order in the forum. We hope this will prevent any one person from going crazy with power, as it will only be for 24 hours. If you're interested, please post here.

@ghug

Good question. The Rent-a-Mods will only have mod access to the forum.
spyman (424 D (G))

What do you mean by "keep order in the forum"? Are we talking just locking threads with cheating accusations or are there other issues of order that are to be addressed?
abgemacht (700 D (G))

@spy

Another good question!

During the trial period, we'll only have Rent-a-Mods help with cheating accusations. The goal, of course, is to help with overall censorship for threads that the community at large finds offensive.

I'd volunteer, I'd like to help out. As long as there are clear guidelines and just manual labour, such as locking cheating accusation threads and those with blatant hate speech. But are you sure this will lessen the workload? It takes a long time for a mod to learn the community enough to be able to draw the line fairly well, and all mod decisions are based on judgment. Since you're suggesting a long line of inexperienced mods, there will almost certainly be mistakes made, and there is a clear risk that people, with the best intentions, will piss off someone and create a shitstorm that you will have to defend. I like the idea, democratising the power somewhat by distributing it fairly in small doses, it reminds me of ancient Greece. But it would have to be carefully managed.

So the mod a day can silence, but not ban? But what if the power goes to their head? Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Can their silences be for more than 24 hours? Will someone monitor their exercising of the power?

Azawad
Just curious if anyone here has any thought on the situation in northern Mali/Azawad. It seems extremely unlikely to me that 2,000 ECOWAS troops are going to be able to fight the Tuaregs unless the MNLA splits, and I haven't really heard anything indicating that that's going to happen. At the same time, all of this seems to be happening kind of quickly. Are they prepared to set up a government?

Have you ever made a horrible decision and not realized it until after you've done it?
Well I have. In fact, there are only two things in this life that I've done that were incredibly stupid. The first is not putting oil in my vehicle until the engine blew when I was a kid. The second was un-muting Krellin. Not sure why this guy hasn't been banned yet but, like the damage to my motor, ability to not hate idiots will never be fixed again.
