Hi, I'm guilty of being new to this forum, and thought you guys were a group of friendly and accommodative folks. Made a mistake of posting a question about QM and its impact on real life, and was punished through an immediate removal of the thread by a gentleman that goes by the name of fresh_42. The title of the thread in question was: Why is life random at times and not random most of the time? I asked this gentleman the reason of his actions, and this is what he responded: "it hasn't been a bit philosophical, it was purely philosophical. In addition "why" questions are basically not to answer. They open up a debate about all and everything. Additionally the connection to QM has been rather artificial. It doesn't have anything to do with whether someone has an accident or not. Also what does "most of the time" or "almost 100%" mean? Regards, fresh_42" My paltry take on this is that the quality standards are subject to personal opinion of the moderators/mentors of this forum. If it clicks them, it's acceptable, if not then it can be promptly deleted. - Why can't we ask simple why questions? - Why can't we ask philosophical questions? - Why can't questions that are "open for debate" be debated? I registered today, and being blunted out because it did not match the mood of a certain individual. Bully behavior, that is what it is. Kim.
