I don't like the direction PF has gone. It's not the same place I first joined in 03. It's very nontechnical and feels like it's been over-run by students who don't bother doing the very basic studying or reading on their own. All the people are gone too: mathwonk, daniel, clausius, krab, ...list goes on. Perhaps we should rename the forums "Homework Help Zone"? Friends I have from PF back when it started up share my feelings. I don't offer a solution, just pointing out what I see. I also notice my motivation to post here is going down. :( Someone smarter than me needs to think about a way to get PF back on track and bring in some expertise that’s no longer here anymore. I don't see much of anything of value at all in the engineering forums, or any new faces that do actual engineering work. Just cranks that want to build pet projects. Anyways, it's late. Goodbye.
