Main Question or Discussion Point
Pf is so great because of math. Math is the street cred of life. So that's why I continue to visit PF.
How can this type of person be considered a savior?In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement.
I used to post unsolvable math questions on Yahoo answers. Sometimes I got (incorrect) solutions as answers.My favorite part about PF is that it allows quality questions from anybody, regardless one’s age or level of education, as long as the person asking the question is willing to learn and not trying to take advantage of those trying to help them. I used to explore the Physics Stack Exchange, but there was so much mockery and negativity towards people whose questions were not “complex enough”. And then you have places like Yahoo answers where people just throw out their homework assignments, waiting for people to give them answers (lots of times incorrect ones).
PF is way awesome
No, I'm not being sarcastic, I meant what I said. This is reality. I eshewed math as a youngster. Now I'm faced with that decision because I've been accepted to an information science grad school program. As you know from my postings I'm a pontificating professsor with my head in the clouds. And that's actually where I like my head to be. But now I have to grow up and learn math. So this is a new adventure for me. I was actually really good at math in high school. I also wrote video games in assembly language on the 6502 processor in 1983. But then I found sex, drugs and rock and roll as an adolescent and blew it. So now at 48 I'm trying to get it back.Are you being sarcastic or something? If you have an issue with this forum, just come out and say it.
I think gracy hit the nail on the head. What makes PF great is the (math) and the selfless service, although I'm sure Greg would appreciate you getting a premium membership. Personally, all I offer is a lot of whining. But I think the PF people still love me. I offer a lot of selfless information. Is it worth anything? IDK.They show us what selfless service is!
