On a public forum? Maybe you are expecting too much critical thinking Paul?
Its up to you scientist types to put the less cerebral amongst us on the right track, to educate and to point out the crack-pot theories then hope they will listen and understand.
You do open yourself up to pointless arguments just by moderating a public forum. This forum is by far the quietist and polite I've come across in ages. Most are full of abusive brainless individuals who are a waste of good food, who I'm sure just post on public forums to give people grief!
I come here to learn and have searching questions answered. I do hope the more brainy types can give me a little patience when I put forward some theoretical thoughts of my own. I'm not mad honest!
