50?! Aw, c'mon, Greg --- SciAm lists only 5 in each category. The point I was making is that comparing canned content sites (SciAm's list) to fora, bulletin boards, usenet groups, etc. is very much like comparing apples to oranges --- the signal:noise aspects are entirely different.

There's good stuff shows up on PF: Siv's post on "(The) Sagan Baloney Detection Kit;" Tom's logic notes; Tom's QFT thread; ta-da, ta-da, ta-da. Where do I spend my time? On PF. Where do I go for solid information? Yahoo or Google. Compare the content of "How do bullets fly?" http://www.nennstiel-ruprecht.de/bullfly/ to that of the PF thread "Spin stabilized." Forum vs. canned content. Free-for-all vs. "formal" presentations.

I wouldn't get too involved in a SciAm PR game --- what you've got going has its own potential to become something entirely different from the things they've noticed and are trying to rate.
