    Maybe for the science, but when I pose a question such as "What is regret?" or What exactly is magnetism?, I usually am dissatisfied with google/ or need someone to simplify it for me.


    Of course. I could ask my high school teachers. But they don't know much either.
    (They definitely do not know how to use google. some of them).

    You are absolutely correct. I've been hearing the same line from theists so long, I've begun to think and respond as they have to me. At this point, I don't plan to wade through posts or refer to trends, I'll retract my claim as dubious and unfounded. I'm not too arrogant to admit when I'm wrong.

    Ah, wonderful. Would have come off better if it had before you realized the door you opened, but I acknowledge the newly acheived consistency.

    Let us not forget, my scholarly and intelligent brethren, that I, Randwolf the Great joined this esteemed forum during this supposed period of "exodus". Surely my superior intellect and unprecedented insight offsets any miserly losses suffered from the depletion of lesser lights.

    Therefore, SF is in better shape than ever, especially now that Gustav, cryptic being that he is, has deigned to grace us with his presence ever more frequently. Also, we have elevated Enmos to his proper position as shepherd of free thoughts (I mean, free thoughts definitely needed to be shepherded...

    )

    Also, honorable mention to Tiassa, who has come down from his ivory tower and regained some of his ancient prowess as devil worshiper and total badass, although all in a metaphorical basis of course.

    We have seen the rise of String, whom with no bullshit whatsoever has shown enormous growth... (And no, I haven't been alone with him in the dark, semi-dark or glamorous hotel room)

    Furthermore, we have attracted several new hot chickies, and really, without hot chickies, what good is any hole? (Was there a pun there?) Online forum or physical location, the atmosphere is just not the same without really hot chickies present.

    On the other hand, it seems to me, in spite of my drug ridden brain, that we have lost a few characters along the way - perhaps they have all moved on to the American network "USA", whose trademark phrase is "Characters Welcome".

    And like others challenged here, I do not intend to sift through innumerable posts to provide statistical evidence of such degradation, but - I feel it in my bones, man!

    How do we keep the scholarly content flowing, while checking or at least slowing the total bullshit artists, trolls, bigots, religious zealots, etceteras?

    Perhaps we could lead by example – DON”T FEED THE TROLLS! Especially those that beg for it, they are here only to cause the end of SF.

    Some Members (read Gustav) have asked for evidence (read head count) of those that have left due to bigotry, or perhaps plain stupidity, on the part of the Abrahamic Nutters, the insane, and / or the totally unscientific minds that frequent this forum. I for one, do not know the absolute numbers involved here, but suspect distortion on both sides.

    Nevertheless, I propose a solution. Some would say that the assigned nutters would not stay in their assigned playgrounds.

    Well, F**k them, let’s give it a try! Loosen up on the rules in pseudoscience and perhaps free thoughts, create a new sub-forum called Flame War’s and let people have at it.

    I mean why not? Should require minimal moderation, allow a place for the monkeys to come out and play, allows for stricter moderation of the “respectable” forums without fear of degradation of numbers in said posts… In the real fora, keep the sword sharp and heavy, and don’t be afraid to use it – but only to kick the idiots to the “playpens”.

    What the hell is the downside? After that, send the thread to the cesspool and ban the particularly egregious members… Who loses?
