My logic is entirely personal, though, and doesn't reflect any sort of consensus or serious discussion by the moderators about the issue.

That's why people are saying "okay mods, make a decision - can we talk about Icke or not, because if not then just make it a bannable offense." We're saying it since the alternative (being allowed to talk about him but being subjected to irrational, verbose and relentless attack by one member of the forum with a bug in his ass about it) is too much and so far he's just allowed to do it with zero in the way of moderation. It's out of hand.
I do agree that some good stuff was posted in the latest thread, but it's clear that AD and that new fella don't actually even want to talk about what they say they want to talk about since I and others tried but we kept getting the run around.
To the friend who says "Do you subscribe to that Ickean worldview?" ,
I say "Friend, no I dont"
My friend says "But you have not used MY tools for your discernment!,
so you must actually believe!
I care about you -
as a demonstration of that I must point this out to you!"
I say "I know and honor your caring. I value the tools you have - I often use them, but have found others as well..."
