Exactly, Gad. And his “backtrack” was in response to this:

TimErnst • a day ago

After having read the majority of the comments on this blog, I finally reach the conclusion that Dr. Exiled, Moksha and others are having a quibbling contest over at their own hate-sponsored blog. Their blog apparently consists of many disaffected members, and might be referentially known as QAnon?

A post he is allowing to stand, by the way, giving further credence to your theory about this as a tactic.
It is a silly transparent tactic designed to illicit an "other" response to those who point out that Dr. P, Midge, and/or Kiwi57 may be straying into church cheerleader mode with their silly apologetics. He is using the Saul Alinsky tactic of accusing your enemy of doing exactly what you are doing. Then when called out for your boorish conduct, you have an easy, ready made excuse available to put people off of your trail by accusing your accuser of falsely accusing you because they are the supposed guilty ones doing the Saul Alinsky thing. It creates doubt and reinforces the group.

Mormons believe in nonsense, NDE's, magic stones, that Joseph didn't invent polygamy so he could target some young women for sexual encounters, that there is actually evidence of Nephites, etc., etc. So, accuse the accusers of being involved with conspiracy theories. It just might bolster the faithful or at least get them to not look and find out the truth, for a short time anyway.

Accusing the accusers.......no wonder Mormons in general support Trump, that's his methodology.

...The "principal factor" for Dan's failure to "tamp down expressions of indignation against [MormonDiscussions.com]" is that Dan and his friends CHOOSE to respond to individual comments at Sic et Non with blanket insults aimed at this forum, rather than addressing those people as individuals.

Dan: engage, ban, ignore -- that's entirely your call. Defend at all costs when someone attacks you directly -- per our many long emails, that is all FAIR GAME in our contract. As I recall, you reserved the right to directly address an INDIVIDUAL when defending yourself against specific libel or slander. Go for it! But for the sake of your good name, please do "whatever it takes" to fulfill your side of our agreement.

Dan, if you cannot or will not do that, kindly and promptly say so. Upon seeing your concession, I will happily name a worthy charitable cause to which you and your colleagues at the Interpreter Foundation may remit the entirety of my October 2019 Interpreter donation, thus relieving you of any future burden in our agreed upon deal.
And still...

Dan: I strongly suggest sending MOKSHA back to the hate board for at least several months where he can decide if he is not going to try to stink up sic et non with his disgusting antics.

Moksha does but finds that merely amusing. Moksha and his close associates have Professor Peterson and me, as well as our Kiwi friend as a targets of invective on their hate board.

Moksha DanielPeterson • 2 days ago

Wow, so does he have any official capacity with the Interpreter? When you read items with factual errors at the Shades board, I wish you would post a correction at that time. I like getting correct information.

Louis Midgley Moksha • a day ago

Moksha is now insisting that someone take on the job of correcting misinformation for people who float half-submerged in a sewer of misinformation. Sorry, no rational person would take on such a task.

.... and yet they actually still believe in Mormonism, in seer stones, in the EmodE/ghost committee theory ...

Where did they get their Ph.D.'s again?

Midgley:

...rather than engage in reasoned and reasonable scholarship which has not and cannot possibly be done on a message "board" by fake doctors and fake professors.

Lol. If Midgley only knew.

Dr. P says in the above thread over at sic et non:

No, it will not become a new theme for LDS apologetics.

The "apologists" that I know have always believed in addressing challenging issues forthrightly and honestly.

On just the matter of Joseph Smith and plural marriage, for instance, look up the works of these three people, who have been involved with the Interpreter Foundation since its founding:

Ugo Perego
https://interpreterfoundati...
http://www.josephsmithdna.com/

Craig Foster (a regular on the weekly Interpreter Radio Show)
https://interpreterfoundati...
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=...

Brian Hales
https://interpreterfoundati...
https://www.amazon.com/Bria...

You would be far better served, in this regard, if you would pay attention to what we actually say and do instead of to what your associates at the Other Place claim we say and do.
Cue the laugh track:
