The Cesspool is a subforum for SciForums for unintelligent discussion. It has no assigned moderator. GeoffP once attempted to ride an upswell of general indifference to Cesspool Mod, but was eventually crushed by his running opponent, a large rock.
Although originally the Cesspool was created to dump undesirable content and threads and hence send a signal to the creators of this content, the Cesspool quickly gained a cult status. Post were purposely created there because it was believed the Cesspool was cool. This led to the removal of the ability to create threads there. This only slightly diminished its cult status.
This attitude towards the Cesspool is not shared by all members. Members which specialize in posting pseudoscientific content often lose interest in their thread once it is moved there. Other more open-minded members see the Cesspool as an opportunity to post content that is not acceptable in the proper subforums. Cultists of the Cesspool are known for imbibing urine.
