Awesome subforum. :!!)
Is it new?
yes we added it just a few days ago
Yep, at most a week old (I can't remember which day exactly it was begun). There are so many of those ads out for dubious products, and they were popular threads in S&D, so we decided it would be a good public service (mostly thank Ivan for the initiative that got it started).
Okay then, thank you Ivan and co.!
I don't think I was ever in S&D proper before; it didn't occur to me that this sort of stuff (vs straight crackpottery) happened over there.
Thanks for the big thumbs up mbrmbrg.
We invite PF members to join in and help to explain the science, or lack thereof, of product claims. Or, if you have a question about the efficacy of an advertised product, then post a link, cite the claim, and see what comes. There is a good chance that one of our members will be able to provide some insight.
Product Claims Forum
I should mention that we do not allow crackpottery in S&D. Specific claims may be cited, and many times we have people posting to ask questions about something unusual, but crackpot theories are never allowed. Our goal is to sort out the nonsense and to identify and survey the most credible information related to potential and genuine mysteries that may interest current and future scientists.
Here are a few my favorite topics that are discussed or linked in S&D.
Ivan, I'm sorry for dissing your forum, but did you have to give me another forum to lose my life in???
Heh, no problem. It can get a little wild at times, but the posting guidelines have evolved over the years and they are now very strict. Blatent nonsense is usually deleted or locked within minutes to hours.
We do our best!
I don't know why I keep thinking mbrmbrg is Mr Big.
