    Is anybody else as disappointed as me that SciForums really has very little to do with science discussion and instead is just a large place where Star Wars Star Trek sci-fi freaks can ask meaningless questions?

    Well, a slight disappointment, perhaps. I really don't have a problem with people wanting to discuss such things and many others that don't particulary appeal to my personal interests. Yes, I would certainly enjoy more scientific discussions but there will always be a certain number of minds that aren't ready for the "hard" stuff yet.

    Maybe you just spend too much time down in the scifi forum?

    I have to say that your little thread here is quite ironic considering your own posting history. But, hey, whatever trips your trigger. I suppose it's a lot easier to be 'disappointed' than to actually do anything about it. You know. Like starting a thread on 'science' rather than on 'disappointment'.

    Ah well. That's the youth of America for you. Always looking for someone to solve their problems for them. Like on Star Trek.

    And. As to meaningless questions... define meaningless. Perhaps your horizons are too cramped. You do know where meaning comes from, don't you? It comes from you. If you find something meaningless then perhaps the problem is that you find it meaningless. (The funny thing is that you still respond anyway...)

    Invert nexus you sound like a real asshole...did I do something to hurt your feelings? Or do you just like jumping on people because it's only through a computer?

    I've been hanging out here for about four years and it has changed tremendously. There used to be a lot of linguists and anthropologists, now there are virtually none.

    Attendance and expertise on the science forums seems to have dropped off.

    I'm a SF fan and I don't find that forum all that interesting. It's all about the visual media, very little about books.

    Most people seem to stay about a year, which makes sense because most of the members are students. Stick around and it will change.
  12. invert_nexus Ze do caixao Valued Senior Member


    I am an asshole. The question is am I real?

    As to why I 'jumped on you'. It's simple.
    Newbies casting aspersions piss me off.
    Especially hypocritical newbies, like you.

    Now. You might notice that I actually tried to insert a touch of intellectual discussion into the thread. On the meaning of meaningless and the source of meaning.
    But, I'm not surprised that you found no meaning in it.

    What do you think your best bet would be to resolve your disappointment?
    Is whining about it going to solve it?
    Or should you follow Porfiry's simple advice?

    The problem isn't what others are doing. The problem is what you are doing.
    What are you doing to make Sciforums more like a place that wouldn't disappoint you?
  13. JFS321 Antioxidant Man Registered Senior Member

    Well thank you. Thanks for telling me I'm the problem, I have no intellect, etc. Guess I should just quit worrying about all those student loans I have...they are worthless now. See, it's judgemental comments people like you make on these forums that make them so irritating sometimes.
  14. invert_nexus Ze do caixao Valued Senior Member

    Let's recap.
    You're disappointed that this forum is not a 'scientific wonderland'. Right?
    What are you doing about it?
    Is this thread resolving that problem in any way, shape, or form?
    Is it?
    I also went back over your posting history (42 posts is easy to do it with) and find very few posts from you that I would term scientifically significant. Most would fall right into what you are calling meaningless (which, by the way, was spurned by you once more... Again. No surprise. Not even disappointment...)

    I don't recall mentioning your intellect. Or your etcetera. I thought I merely mentioned your hypocrisy. You know. how you expect others to be more scientific and to live up to standards which even you would fail?

    Guess so. Maybe you could find some way to sell them to somebody with initiative rather than a whiny pussy such as yourself. Maybe they'd make more of them than you would.

    See the hypocrisy?
    You don't like the judgemental comments?
    What? Are you saying that you don't judge? Isn't this very thread a 'judgemental comment'?
    Fucking hypocrite.
  15. JFS321 Antioxidant Man Registered Senior Member

    Congrats, you just got the IGNORE list!!! YAY!
  16. invert_nexus Ze do caixao Valued Senior Member

    I'm so proud.
    Do I get a trophy too?
    And look.
    So quick to judge.
    Just like a hypocritical and whiny pussy.
    I'm definitely not disappointed.
    I guess you're not disappointed that the forum has an ignore list, are you? Do you feel better about yourself now?

    You won't last long here. You're one of those who seems unable to have discussions. You've not responded to a single point. Your instinct is to stick your fingers in your ears and go lalalalalala.

    Let's all watch as the noble JFS321 makes Sciforums a far more scientific environment. If he doesn't spend some time coming up with a worthy thread after this then... well. Nothing really.
    I wonder if I'll be disappointed?
    Only time will tell.
  17. JFS321 Antioxidant Man Registered Senior Member

    And Nexus, just one more post, probably my last on SciForums. And no worries, I won't waste my time with your reply.

    Just be glad we'll never meet in person, and I'm sorry you make it so obvious you were made fun of terribly in high school.
  18. invert_nexus Ze do caixao Valued Senior Member

    Why? Would you beat me up?
    You're so sure that you're stronger than I am?
    You're truly an excellent judge, aren't you?

    Do you rent yourself out for birthday parties too? You're like this amazing prophet and stuff.
    Very scientific.
    You're my new hero. I used to idolize Tesla, but you're much better than he.

    You know. If I met you in person, I'd probably let you sodomize me. Would you like that?

    Say it ain't so, Joe!!
    (Too bad for you. So quick to judge. Sciforums is lovely place. There's even plenty of hypocritical, whiny pussies you could chum up with.)

    Of course you won't.
    And you don't even see that that is exactly the problem.
    Your problem.
  19. JFS321 Antioxidant Man Registered Senior Member

    Wow. I literally feel better. I'll keep on posting. Just a little peek at your posts show you usually do try to play devil's advocate and put people down to boost an ego probably formed entirely around your computer (yes that was judgemental).

    No hard feelings Nexus, I was just next on your list. I understand you have to define yourself somehow!!!
  20. invert_nexus Ze do caixao Valued Senior Member

    You must be referring to Valich. As he is pretty much the only person that I've been 'bashing'. You ought to chum up with him. You might like him.

    I think there was another guy who, like you, decided to insult the forums in general. That was down in site feedback or something.

    Let's see. I got on Metakron a while back because he was such a whiny pussy (like you but far worse) who kept hijacking threads to talk about how he's been bullied his whole life and how he's not responsible for anything in his life.

    I don't think that there are any others recently. Valich, by far, is the only one that I've consistently flamed. And he's a special case. You might find his posts interesting and see what you think of them. Then maybe you might alter your 'judgement' on my motivations.

    The truth is that I don't think I do put most people down. I'm actually a rather nice guy. I just call people on their bullshit when I see it.

    I've called Valich on his shit so many times over the past few weeks that I'm pretty much done with him (although the fucker is an admirable troll and does draw one to lambast him. I'm hardly unique in this.)

    And now I'm calling YOU on YOURS.
    Next on my list?
    If you say so.
    I thought I was on your list, not the other way around.

    I don't care if you don't like me.
    What I care about is this forum.
    I like it here. And I don't like hypocritical newbies casting aspersions.
    You've failed again and again to respond to any of my points on this subject.
    Will you now respond to them? Or will you simply move along now that you've judged me?

    Seriously. Can't you see how fucking hypocritical you are?

    Let me recap one last time.

    The thread. You're disappointed in lack of scientific discussion. So what do you do? Start a scientific thread? No.
    Your posting history. Posts that would fall under the term 'meaningless' in your definition far outnumber scientific posts.
    Judgemental comments. Your whole thread here and practically every response you've made to me has been the quintessence of jugemental behavior.

    You are a hypocrite. Pure and simple.
    How do you respond? Are you able to respond?

    Of course there's no hard feelings. Why should there be? Your judgment is way off if you think I'm angry or anything. Annoyed at your hypocritical behavior. But nothing more.
    I do wonder if you'll ever pull your head out of your ass, but not much.

    You search a couple of pages of my history and decide to stick around... it seems like you're the one with the problem defining yourself. I'm very comfortable with who and what I am. If you've gone over my posting history, you'll see far more than flame posts. But, of course, that wouldn't serve your interests. Would it?

    Nah. I'm safely labelled now. And that means that you're safe.

    Seriously. That's pretty funny. You were going to leave but changed your mind...

    Oh. And perhaps, if you're capable, you might analyze the progression of posts in this thread. My first post to you was pretty damn tame. I merely stated the irony and hypocrisy of you making a thread like this when your problem is supposedly one of lack of scientific discussion and I also mentioned your posting history. I then tried to introduce a touch of intellectual discussion on the nature of meaning and such which you ignored.

    It wasn't until you responded to me with ad hominems rather than actually addressing a single point made that I began to become irate with you. Your failure to participate in discussion is what brought about my flames to you. It is this that makes me think that you and Valich might be friends. He also seems incapable of responding properly to posts.
