    My last topic was deleted, and I am unsure why. Could you please clarify what sort of posts will be deleted and what sort of posts won’t be deleted? I would like to continue to contribute to this important discussion.

    Preston, you asked readers to contact you directly with any questions they had regarding the UM because you are a geologist. Unfortunately, you have not read the Universal Model and you haven’t been asked by our organization to offer advice on the new discoveries it contains.

    The Universal Model forum doesn’t allow unsolicited promotion for either personal or business matters. This forum is meant for individuals to post their questions, comments, suggestions, etc that will help them as they work to better understand the discoveries discussed in the Universal Model book. If you do not have a forum post related to this description, please refrain from posting it here.

    Thank you


    So will I be allowed to continue offering pertinent critical views within individual discussions?


    Yeah, they deleted my last couple comments without explanation, too. I’m assuming it’s because I included a link to my website.


    The current UM rule book seems to go like this:

    1) Advocate “open-mindedness”, but censor comments like crazy.

    2) Tell scientists who dispute your work that they can peer-review it for free if they sign up, and then refuse to let them see your work once they start pointing out where you’ve erred.

    Overly worried, UMers?

    Most real scientists are use to letting others critique the merits of their work. Often they’re humble enough to be grateful when they are corrected.

    The UM Forum Rules are now listed on this page beneath the list of UM Forums:


    I couldn’t find any rules at that location.

    The link has been fixed.
