Oooooooh. SSS is Smokey. Makes sense with the whole failed doxing thing.

Dr. Peterson has spent a lifetime honing a single skill: the ability to superficially skim information in order to cherry pick it for laymen' consumption and to win arguments online. He's the living embodiment of the Plantonic ideal of Confirmation Bias.

As a hobby for a layman, I can understand doing this. But as the foundation for an academic career? Pretty disappointing, especially to those he promised books and other academic output.

He gets extremely touchy anytime the topic of getting paid by the church for this activity comes up.

Why should getting paid for spin-doctoring be a more touchy subject than getting paid to teach Arabic? I could see being sensitive about being paid to teach Poly Sci, but that is different.

Welcome, Sir Sam Steele! No doubt the Mopologists are very jealous indeed of your knighthood--just as Dean Robbers pointed out. And I would imagine that the Mopologists have been thrown into something of a paranoid frenzy over your OP. Which "troll" were you, after all? Dr. Detroit? Professor Tapir_Bukk? The Beef Experience? There have been dozens of posters who've been banned, which makes me think that Dr. Peterson's remarks from many years ago--about how he never asked for people to be banned on FAIR or ZLMB--were lies. It now seems clearer than ever that he at least exerted pressure for people to be banned. He simply cannot hold his own in certain debates.
