Why do you ask?   Yes - we discuss science here....   and a lot of politics and religion too, but yes - it is clearly a science forum.

Who were you before you were AK?

Well some of us do try.

But I'm glad to see someone has beat me to cancelling out the red mark against DrP.

That is not a good way for a newcomer's (or anyone's for that matter) thread to start.

Moderator Note

Let's not go there. That's an issue for staff to potentially worry about, if warranted.

I have often noticed that many newbies come here and within the first one or two posts, can be seen to have an agenda or an axe to grind. :rolleyes:

I didn't give you the -1, BeeCee.
But if we gave people a chance and were not so quick to assume the worst, some of those newbies might stick around.
We were all newbies at one time, and I know I asked silly questions.

I wish.

 

Last night a newby joined and then posted a technical question I assume he had a real interest in.

When I posted a technical answer 1 hour later I discovered that his interest lasted just long enough to post, not long enough to stick around and look around and he hasn't been back.

 

What a waste of both our time.

I got a -1? Dang me! :P

In answer to your suggestion, I would hasten to say that most newbies are more curious as to how things operate here then anything else: Perhaps in this fast paced world we inhabit, the majority of newbies just havn't the time to post regularly, and/or their feelings on science simply lack the depth that others have, and consequently they are in and then out again. But also just as obviously, a percentage of them come here on agenda driven missions, that in essence are out to unjustly rubbish science and push/advertise their specific agenda.
