I will now go check out the International Skeptics Forum, as I don't believe I have ever visited there.
It's an interesting forum; you should check it out.

Though at the ISF, there is constant whining about unfair moderation, usually from the same five or six suspects, with two especially egregious whingers. Still, I like to hang out there in a few of the forums.
The ISF moderation is at times inconsistent in my opinion, but I've managed to keep my whine at a minimum as there is no cheese to go with it there.  :)

In a Zoom chat last night discussions inevitably turned to the current situation, and someone linked to a video posted by the UK's Guardian newspaper:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2020/nov/28/more-than-60-arrested-in-anti-lockdown-protests-in-london-video

about lockdown protests by all manner of misguided and deluded people.

About 35 seconds in we see a clip of a gentleman holding one end of a banner demanding an end to lockdown and complaining about 5G and psyops. Here's a closer shot of him discussing things with the police:



Marcus Allen anyone?

Worse. Piers Corbyn. Brother of Saint Jeremy of Islington, Blessed Fence-Sitter of the Allotment.
He's the walking, talking, living embodiment of crank magnetism.

Timfinch has returned!

Yep, that is definitely him at Cosmoquest under his new hat Lord Foul, stinking the place up with the same identical rubbish he posted here(and there before being swiftly banned). It must be a symptom of being an HB - get your ass handed to you, go quiet for a year or two then repeat it somewhere else. If anyone is posting in that thread, there's plenty of ammunition -

I and Grant Hutchinson had the same thought, reported him as a possible sock.  No response yet.

That was an interesting thread.  When he said his area of expertise which qualified him to have an informed opinion on the environment in space was his brief training as electrician on a nuclear powered submarine, I had to leap to the defense of the reputation of enlisted Navy Nukes everywhere.  :)  I wonder what his USS Tunny shipmates think of him?  They are better off not knowing I think.

Didn't he claim to have served on a 637 and then someone else who served on the same class kept tripping him up on stuff he should have known? Am I thinking of the right poster here?

I think I asked about diesel fuel tank location and its implications on radiation shielding. Ranb then ripped him a new one.

I was referring to timfinch's claim of "Nuclear electrician aboard a fast attack submarine for 12 years" on page #5 of the thread on this forum.

I wasn't  commenting on your post, but rather just commenting on LJ lack of exposing any experience.  Sorry if I implied anything negative.

That thread is closed now. Having followed along, though, it did make me wonder just why it is that the moon hoax crowd cannot grok 3d spatial reasoning at all. It seems to be a common flaw in  them. Thye cannot fathom that the VARBs are toroids, so it is entirely possible to avoid the worst of them, that orbits happily can and do have different orbital planes, The orbit of the moon is not directly overhead the equator, the orbit of the Sun is not directly over the equatore. Nope. Any moon mission must somehow fire off at the moon in a straight line. Because reasons.

I'm glad it closed as TF was going in circles like a troll, just wanting attention.  I got a PM from grant hutchison that Tim was at Quora calling himself an "information analysist" same a LF said in that thread.  He passed that information onto the mods, not sure if it will do any good.

But you are spot on concerning the 3-D gemoetry which LF(TF)  could not fathom.  i. e. an orbit will be a straight line when mapped on that torus., LOL

Yep. In a moment of frustration with such idiotic misapprehension, I once asked if the crank was actually claiming that it was impossible to insert a digit into the centre of a ring donut. No answer.
