108. I think it's a tough call for the mods
They've now banned at least two DU users for posting tons of TIA's stuff. (This last one, I personally think, was TIA. The other one wasn't, but allowed herself to be used.) But they don't want to rule an entire line of argument -- no matter how lousy -- off limits, and I assume they are reluctant to do anything that would impede debate or intimidate users.

In some ways I think that caruso should have been banned sooner, but on the other hand, by sticking around for several days, he managed to dig himself a lot of interesting holes. Anyone who is willing actually to read and to think about the thread will have a good idea why so many people find TIA so unconvincing.

I do think it would be good for the mods to clarify the rule. There are at least two other domains where TIA can pretend to win every argument; I don't think he is entitled to give-and-take over here.
