We even had a pseudoscience forum for the first few years!
I can imagine how difficult moderation was at that time.

relax restrictions, absorb more and more physics enthusiasts, such as: UFO power, perpetual motion, anti-gravity and other aspect

Moderation was different at that time
..., in other words, "Thanks for the suggestions, but they've been tried before, and declared failures."

I don't want support cause each time I want post, I see " Not open for further replies."
So forum useless.

Is it because the threads that you want to post in are all very old? Or were they closed because they violate the PF rules? Can you post links to a couple of them?

Yeah, there are times when a potentially interesting discussion reveals that the OP has issues with science or reality, and since it's the OP's thread, it ends up getting closed. In such cases, if you think there is an interesting discussion still to be had on the subject aside from the problems introduced by the OP, you have the option to start a new thread to get a better discussion going.

You have to be careful not to "restart a locked thread", since if it has the same problems it will just get locked right away as well. If you're ever not sure, please feel free to send a PM to me or any other Mentor to ask ahead of posting the new thread start.

I hope that helps. :smile:

It is indeed useless for useless discussions like a person's nervousness. If you want e.g. to discuss Webb, then reference the mission statement, the differences to other probes etc. This way it would be a useful discussion If you want to talk about the weather, then PF is indeed not the place to go. I recommend fb.
