Bob Tisdale – making comments disappear

Well, I shouldn’t be surprised but Bob Tisdale has personally demonstrated to me that he is arrogant but also insecure. It’s a complicated combination I know. I probably should have phrased that Bob masks his insecurities with arrogance. I highlighted a bit of Bob here before as a DCOD but this time he gets a special little mention due to his over the top censorship. I’ve mentioned censorship before with other deniers at their dens like Anthony Watts, Climate Audit, Jo Nova and Bishop Hill. This kind of behaviour can only come from insecurity and a fear of being publicly scrutinised and questioned.

About a month ago I came across a Bob Tisdale video on Youtube called “We Now Control Weather — Extreme Heat Events, Dirty Weather, Climate Disasters” The title of course is designed to attract attention but the video is basically more of Bob crapping on with his ocean heat nonsense. Well, I put my head gear on (thankfully) and watched all 15 minutes of the video and put to Bob, in the comments section, this…

Well, I wasn’t really expecting a response so wasn’t surprised when I didn’t receive one. To be honest, I actually forgot all about it. I’m a bit of YouTube tragic in my spare time and make many comments on all sorts of videos. Anyway, today, someone else replied to my comment. When I went to check it out I also saw this…

The first thing to note here is that Bob has responded by typing out my pseudonym. For those who are unfamiliar with YouTube comments, when you wish to reply to a comment, there is a reply button, just like most blogs. Hitting that reply button ensures that when you post the reply, the person you are replying to is notified. Bob, by ignoring that common courtesy, ensures that whomever he is replying to isn’t notified that there is a response. It’s a way of getting the last word in without any scrutiny. I have come across this tactic many times before from another group whose scientific credentials are questionable and don’t like tough questions…young Earth creationists.

So, I decided to make a reply and point out to Bob that replying that way is actually quite rude and questionable. I can’t quite recall exactly what I said, but Bob’s response to it was this…

This sort of arrogance really pisses me off but deep down I knew it was a mask for his own insecurites but I figured I should reply again, and lo and behold…

Blocked. Way to go Bob. Nothing like running and hiding behind the ‘block sender’ button. One can only wonder what he’s afraid of? Scrutiny perhaps? Questions about his methods? Censorship like this is akin to the wilful ignorance displayed by children when they don’t like what they hear. Well, Bob…swallow some concrete and harden up Princess! Anyway, I decided to see what it was that I had written that was so bad that it required my being blocked so I clicked on the display comment button and…

 

my comment has been removed. So there you have it. This is the kind of crap we are up against. These idiots know they can’t win a science discussion so they stifle legitimate criticism of their shonky assertions. The echo chambers live on.
