If this forum is morphing into a sewer of ravings from a paranoid psycho, then I guess it's not the place for me.
Over the years I've come here to learn new stuff involving science. Other aspects of human activities were always part of this forum too, but lately it seems like a couple posters are doing nothing but throwing shit pies and splattering everything. Not much science learning happening here any more.
This was the best science discussion forum I have ever encountered after 25 years on the WWW and more years before that on the "internet". It has been well designed and managed by Percy and we have had hundreds of brilliant, inciteful, and articulate participants from around the planet and a myriad of different backgrounds.
There has always been bullshit too, but my BS Meter has gone past EXTREME several times now and is all set to explode!
What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python
One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie
If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy
The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
It bothers me, too, but the big problem faced by the site is the lack of new members. We are dying. Google began evolving their requirements for search around a decade ago with the result that EvC now rarely appears in search results. I wish I could fix it, but my skills don't lie in that direction. I think more new members would improve the situation.
