    You know the leader and/or moderators (if they have them) right greg?

    Sure it is a little faster but not really. This new PF is much faster than the old. We use the same server but in all seriousness it looks boring. We have colors and avatars (only a few of them do have them or can have them) and we have the PF logo. Plus that topic was mainly caused because Futurist was angry at being banned No offense Futurist.

    Scifi forum looks like a cheap knock off of PF.

    They have a worse signal-to-noise ratio than a Flat Earth Society rally.

    Alright alright people, we all know PF is the best but lets take it easy on sciforums, they are our friends.

    I checked out the member list for sciforums.com. Ugh! It is so bloated with dead accounts that you cannot tell how many active members there really are. It is certainly not the 8000+ implied. I hope PF 3.0 does not develop that problem.

    Yeah, and we never really forgave you for that. :wink:

    But I think he's gone from there now.

    Don't you think that would be a little too dangerous? What if the police found some evidence that incriminates us at the scene of the crime?

    Let's all flip through our telephone directory instead and look under 'Hitman' and hire some professional ones. It'll be quick, decisive and clean.

    Greetings !

    Yeah, I went over their threads a few times
    about a month or so ago. That forum doesn't
    match the level of PF. Maybe it's because they
    have a more "popular" name which draws some
    less "intresting" audience. PF on the other hand
    has a more streightforward name - PHYSICS forums.
    Kin'na blocks away the unwanted crowd... :wink:

    Live long and prosper.

    Greg's right. You know, I happen be a sciforum member. To be truthful, I don't like the forums because they need more members so there could be more action!

    i always thought PF was a cheap knock off of SciF.

    the two forums are diff. here it's all physics and you guys stuff everything else into 'other sciences'. and SciF has an Arts area.

    it's like apples and oranges. well maybe more like Granny Smith apples and Red Apples.

    besides there are other forums...:wink:
