I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Wrong word, Susan ... "think" ... as in he doesn't really WANT to.

He really think that only NASA has done studies?  I

Just had some no-nothing jackass in a chat room try to tell me that anthropocentric climate change is a hoax and that NASA has been fudging data!  Oh, but he doesn't want to talk politics!  CLUELESS FUCKING JERK!!!

Thanks Grinning Cat, a very clear cycle!

The science news cycle (click to enlarge):

THE SCIENCE NEWS CYCLE (Jorge Cham (C)2009) -> Start Here -> Your Research: Conclusion: A is correlated with B (p=0.56), given C, assuming D and under E conditions. -> translated by... -> University PR Office (yes, you have one) - For Immediate Release: scientists find potential link between A and B (under certain conditions) -> ...which is then picked up by... -> News Wire Organizations - A causes B, say scientists. -> ...who are read by... -> The INTERNETS - Scientists out to kill us again. posted by random dude - Comments (377) OMG! i kneeew itt!! - WTH??????? -> ...then noticed by... -> CNC Cable News - We saw it on a Blog! A causes B all the time - What will this mean for Obama? - BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS -> ...and caught on... -> LOCAL EYEWITLESS NEWS - A: KILLER AMONG US?? - 'What you don't know about 'A'... can KILL YOU! More at 11... -> ...eventually making it to... -> YOUR GRANDMA [wearing tinfoil hat] 'I'm wearing this to ward off 'A'' [researcher facepalms] [](image source)

I get the same problem as Joan, I seem to go around in circles trying to fix it.

Comment by Michael Penn on August 18, 2015 at 6:50pm

Google that problem, Joan, and you will find an answer for it. I. E. copy and paste not working, 2 copies of a post, etc. Usually it's a simple fix.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2015 at 5:46pm

Tom, I wish that correcting a mistake using your method worked for me. My situation is that when I copy and paste to a new post, I can't get the paste to work. It used to work. There is also a gremlin that copies a copy and repeats it at the end of the post. I call this the "echo". Sorry folks, hope you aren't confused by my posts!
