Kas Thomas still hanging in at BigThink, despite Darwinists’ attacks

Further to: Is microbiologist Kaz Thomas’s criticism of Darwinism “wrong or outdated”?, BA77 sensibly pointed out that Darwin’s trolls couldn’t easily get Kas Thomas fired from the software industry, where he now works.
He’s probably right. Anyway, they are now at 551 comments, and Thomas started to talk back at some point:
Andre, thank you for this comment. Indeed you are right: I am not a creationist, and yet now I know from first-hand experience what it feels like to be on the receiving end of scorn born of dogma — scientific dogma. I don’t know why it should surprise me to find there are bullies on all sides of this issue. Until now, I stupidly thought scientific minds were more tolerant and less bullying than religious thinkers. The comments here show the truth. There are closed-minded, intolerant bullies on both sides. “Bully” meaning someone who is not content to leave one well-reasoned comment, then move on; someone who has to keep leaving more and more comments, using the most vitriolic language, simply because they can’t get their way.
When I disagree with something I read online, I leave a single comment, then move on. Unfortunately, that’s not how bullies operate. A bully has to get the last word.
It’s pretty clear who the bullies are here. I must say I’m shocked at the degree of intolerance and disrespect shown in some of these comments by Darwinists, who in many cases (it turns out) are anything but open-minded, tolerant, or reasonable. The comments speak for themselves. As I say, it’s clear who the bullies are.
Dear Bullies: You’ve made your point. I hear you. We all hear you. Now please, move on.
Good in general, but that last bit is mystifying. What does Thomas mean, move on? Where, exactly, is a Darwin troll to go? What’s he to do?
Only the government and dead people fund Darwin now.
Dead people fund Darwin? Think endowments and bequests
