I never went to the mkaku site before it was transferred here, but I could see that it might be uptight about such things as actual time travel. This is a more forgiving site. Another one is the forum at www.superstringtheory.com,[/URL] where there is a lot of nonstandard theory exposed. They're having some technical problems right now, but some boards are open.

I was a moderator at the MKaku website and I can assure you that we were not uptight there. We often discussed such ideas as time travel. We had a theoretical physics section as well as others that dealt with such things. Heck, we even had a Science Fiction section, just for fun.
MKaku is a big fan of science fiction and enjoys discussing ideas now matter how rediculous they might seem. Dr. Kaku was on "Unscreweed" for crying out loud.
No, we were not an uptight group of people.

zantra, thanks for the heads up. for a second there, i felt like i had become a specific target for some reason; it is enlightening to know that others with generic emails are blocked as well. thanks for the heads up. i will try registering under a different email address. luckily i have one up my sleeve.
as for the gullibility comment, i'd like to point out that no one here has expressed the opinion that they believe this john titor guy, only that we find him an interesting topic for discussion. it is our time to waste on the subject, though it raises geeneric questions such as where are time travelling tourists and historians? are they here but keeping a low profile because they're following rules about not influencing the timeline? why go back in time to witness it when you can just read about it in a book? maybe there is seen to be no need to go back in time. perhaps the interesting direction is FORWARDS and therefore we would never encounter a time traveler. perhaps that's why there are no time travelers: they can easily access history from their own sources without the need to actually go back and witness it. or maybe they also have invented an invisibility potion by then and they're all around us but invisible to current technology. but, at that point, who really cares if there are time travelers here if they're not going to influece the timeline and not going to interact with us historical figures?
(btw, zantra, i love the highlander series! do you think duncan will be the last immortal standing when the dust settles? wouldn't it be a tragedy if he was the last one standing and got killed in some stupid accident?)
may your journey be graceful,
