DaveScot, "BlogCzar" at Uncommon Descent, has issued an apology:
"DaveScot: ... I deleted the “Sterling Example of Anti-Religionists” thread due to many complaints that it was offensive. I want to extend my apologies for my own vulgar contributions that many found to be offensive. When I find myself among the crude and vulgar I tend to participate at the same level rather than rise above it as I should."
The sorry saga is told here.
If only the rest of Uncommon Descent was so principled.
I apologize too for any offense caused, although I won't pretend it didn't happen.
Update: In the interests of probity, the deleted UD thread is presented here: A Sterling Example of the Anti-religionists
A further update. I was wrong. DaveScot's "apology" is nothing of the sort. If he was truly sorry, he would have deleted the UD thread immediately and apologized for humiliating his colleague. Dembski clearly had no option but to keep DaveScot on. How must Denyse O'Leary feel on all of this? "Morphodyke"? "Smarmy cross dresser"? Is that acceptable discourse at the Discovery Institute ("NAMBLA")?
