Main Question or Discussion Point

Here is their http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ResearchGate" [Broken], note the section I highlighted below:
http://www.researchgate.net/" has developed a semantic search engine that browses internal resources and major external research databases, including PubMed, CiteSeer, arXiv, NASA Library and others to find research papers. The search engine was developed to analyze a larger string of terms than is used in standard keyword searches – it will analyze entire abstracts – with the idea that more terms will allow more precise results.
It appears this http://www.researchgate.net/" is young (2010) has roots in Berlin, Germany and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Is anyone here using it ? If so is the search engine everything they claim it is ?

Rhody...

Can I just call myself a scientist and join the site?

I am not going to using it yet, not eligible as of now.

I was hoping someone would be "fresh meat" and fill us in on the good, the bad of this site. I tend to shy away from these places. I haven't been able to get my LinkedIn account removed yet either. Need to contact those folks directly I guess. I would say try to sign up root and let us know if it is intrusive, or really worthwhile, delivering the goods so to speak as advertised.

I am no good here. But personally so far I could sense any professionalism coming out of that site.

I only use http://www.ieee.org/index.html" [Broken].
