Aaargh. I was sure it was Betseba and tried several versions of that. It never occurred to be to change the vowel!

Damn, I knew about Michelangelo's David but couldn't think of any other scultor in the Renaissance... so I started going through the other ninja turtles but stopped before I reached Donatello *headdesk*.

"Tribe that the giant came from" I tried Philistia. That didn't work, so I tried "Philistine", since he was a Philistine. No good. The correct answer is "Philistines", but I didn't try that since it doesn't make sense the way the question was asked. I gave up, figuring that it was going to super specific, like Ashdod or Gath (he was from Gath). But no, it was looking for the plural demonym for members of the tribe rather than the name of the tribe.

I had the exact same problem. I would have thought that the singular should be accepted at least.

Ancient Jews had a serious fetish for genital mutilation. Because the voices in their head told them to. Totally sane.

I take particular umbrage at the fact that an atheist has the unmitigated gall to criticize religious the practices of believers. I strongly agree with the commenter who suggested that you stay the HELL off of this site!!! - There are many others to choose from and I am sick and tired of your pejorative, insulting and ignorant comments about other people's religious beliefs. (And, yes quiz master, you may censor this as you often do when anyone disagrees)

Funnily enough, kal swears all the time, gets censored, and then complains about it as if it's discriminating and totally unjust. (In fact the only comment with swearing I've ever seen on this website - apart from yours, of course) is one by kal. Which, presumably, was deleted shortly thereafter. And kal presumably went on to complain about it. Such is the way of Jetpunk.

As usual @divant you don't know what you're talking about. How is it pejorative, insulting or ignorant to say what @kal said? I take particular umbrage at the fact that a believer has the unmitigated gall to criticise someone who thinks circumcision is insane (which it is). If anyone has suggested you stay the HELL off this site I would at least partially agree with them. (If you want to stay but stop posting nonsense that's fine too). There are many others to choose from and I am sick and tired of your nonsensical, insulting and ignorant comments about religion and also other facts. (And, no quiz master, you may not censor this unless you're also censoring @divant).

And @Aesthus, I can't speak for all @kal's comments but in my experience the places he complains about are mainly where long chains of comments that he has contributed to are deleted. I have experienced this as well and it is annoying. I have only ever seen one of my comments targeted for deletion because it was offensive, but it didn't have any swearing and was just as provocative as the title of one of @QM's quizzes. But, it can't be perfect I suppose.

most of the time when I complain about a comment being deleted it's because I see someone making a comment that is a personal attack against someone or a group of people, often fueled by bigotry or ignorance, but maybe thinly veiled in a facade or politeness; I reply to the comment calling out the poster for their ignorance or bigotry; then my comment gets deleted, presumably on the grounds that it is a "personal attack" or maybe on the grounds that it contains some word the QM finds objectionable - I almost never have posted anything here I would consider a "swear word" but I've said some things I'm sure some would find objectionable. Anyway, I am mostly complaining about what I see as an inconsistent standard in the moderation. If someone is being a jerk, you should be allowed to be a jerk back to them. I never start these tussles, in spite of what some oversensitive posters above think. Speaking honestly about a religious document is not a personal attack against you.

Oh, well I guess we must expect that these days any comment not in goose-stepping agreement with the nattering nabobs will be attacked. So be it, but I will continue to express my opinions as I wish and whoever doesn't like them can choke on them.
