I have seen on Byzcath
that Mardukm has been censored, and his posts pulled, on CAF for issues he has debated (without problem IIRC) here.
I'm one of those he butted heads with and I don't think it is what he said that is the problem, but how he says it. It is very much part of his reply routine to take a jab or two at someone personally while telling them they are wrong. I've left threads that I debated with him because I am becoming too uncharitable or have already crossed that line and realized I should stop.
For the record, I have never reported him to the mods, but given that he ticks a lot of people off I am not surprised if a number did report him.
I'd have to disagree. I've known mardukm online at Byzcath and CAF for many years and have watched him go through several phases in that time - initially from Coptic Orthodox to Coptic Catholic. When still Orthodox, he was a relatively infrequent and not very outspoken poster. After he made the transition between Churches, he gradually ratcheted up both the frequency and outspokenness of his posts.
Initially, his outlook and posting appeared to me, and many others, to be highly latinized. Subsequently, he mellowed somewhat, but remained 'very Catholic' - perhaps not as hard-core, but still western in many of his views. In the last couple of years, his postings have seemed to me to reflect a significantly more eastern outlook - still 'Catholic', but less inclined to be accepting of being treated like a red-haired stepchild by Rome.
However, through all that time, I've never observed him to be someone who injected personal jabs into his debates and can't imagine that to have been a significant factor in his suspension or banning, whichever it was that they laid on him. I rather suspect that his less than full enthusiasm for the doctrine or dogma of the Immaculate Conception was his undoing - that would be about par for a site that doesn't understand anything about the distinctions in theological understanding between West and East.
But, I suspect that anyone who can legitimately claim full understanding of the CAF mentality could also explain the Theory of Relativity in a way that could be understood by 2 year olds. Being able to do either of those things would be a true wonderment. Any site that can view my good friend, Michael/Hesychios, as someone deserving of a ban can hardly be expected to exercise soound judgment in analyzing the dangers that more outspoken posters pose to the faith of the Latin masses for which the site operates.
But, what do I know? having myself been spotted for the rabble-rousing, Catholic-bashing, Orthodox in Catholic clothing that I clearly am? They found me out! (I rather suspect that they're still watching and waiting for me to declare that I've 'doxed - cause they're absolutely convinced that it's due to happn any day, week, month, or year now
