    As some one said in another thread, bringing more people brings more crackpots. The best way would be to tell your friends about PF...

    Your non-crackpot friends

    yea, you think you are.

    one thing that would help would be to decide who the target audience is. I've stopped coming around as much because a thread I started about viagra was deleted and I was given a warning which I didn't feel was warranted. I'll admit the thread wasn't something a 5 year old should read, but if the reader was over 16 I don't see what could have been offensive. I don't want to see pornography here, but a prudish attitude is just as unappealing.

    Maybe you should discuss this with Greg or whoever gave you the warning.

    Well, you do realize that you high jacked the thread.

    I do realize that lots of people high jack threads, but I find it to get annoying sometimes especially when the topic can be interesting. You can high jack it after 3 pages. After 3 pages, the discussion is probably exhausted by then.

    Note: Actually you didn't really high jack it. Just got personal I guess.

    The target audience is obviously nerdy kids at universities, profs who are passionate about their career, and the regular layman who seems to enjoy science.

    that's funny did you read the posts before mine? I thought I was bringing the discussion back on topic which is the exact opposite of thread hijacking isn't it?

    It is the very mission of all PFers to hijack, kidnap, derail, sabotage, or otherwise maime and destroy all threads in GD in a tasteful and witty manner.

    Pity no-one has been witty enough to end the TKC thread.

    It was destroyed once upon a time but a council of evil sorcerers resurrected it.

    That old chestnut. So in reality it is the "Undead Thread Killer Champion" thread. Interfering sorcerers of varying evilness, why can't you just let it be?!?!

    I think the problem of PF is the lack of females. So how about inviting your GND to PF?:smile:
