To me, Sciforums itself is the most interesting topic on Sciforums. Maybe the administrator/owner/moderators of the site can post some interesting history, reasons for being, regarding the site. There are almost no members on this site, compared to any other site that has been around this long. There are some moderators who have been here for a very long time. Oftentimes most of the debating is between Tiassa and James, often contentious. The site itself is really just a collection of nut jobs with a few regular members and several (including me) rubber-necking car crash watchers who drive by occasionally looking for (but rarely finding) an interesting thread to comment on and to join in on the discussion. I don't know why people start/own sites such as this? The traffic can't be driving enough clicks to make advertising a real revenue stream. The purpose of the site escapes me...a Science Forum that is about religion and anything that isn't scientific. I'm really curious as to why Tiassa has been interested enough in this site to stick around for 17 years, posting long diatribes, duly footnoted, on a daily basis year after year on a site with virtually no traffic. There's got to be a good story there. James has the more level head, almost too level for such a crazy site. There are a few posters who have been here for years (Nebel) who posts in threads about some pet project of theirs where they are close to being the only poster who keeps it going, turning it into a blog.

Owners/administrators/moderators why not take this thread and give us some history of this site, tell us about your motivations for starting and continuing with this site and about what is the fulfillment that you get from this site. It looks like much of the motivation for some may be the private discussions among the moderators about the site. I think it would be interesting to know what the moderators get from moderating the group that they wouldn't get by just establishing a private email list among themselves? For those who come here, start a thread and basically turn it into a blog (with no participation or interest from anyone else) considering the low readership numbers here, why come here as opposed to starting a blog that would soon get more readership than here? Let's take this, the most interesting subject at Sciforums and do it justice!
