    I mean, I consider some of my recent postes to be brilliant, but the lack of enthusiastic response from our mass Membership really hurts my self esteem. westwind.

    I'd say (not as a mod) Tough. Some threads attract interest, some don't. If they don't, let them die a peaceful death. If they are really interesting (not just in your opinion) they will flourish.

    As a mod I know of no policy, but I suspect it would be frowned upon.

    With time you will come to appreciate them just as much as we do.

    Dear Postes, thank you for your moral support. It's just that my brilliance comes and goes, could depend on the brand of oysters I am eating, or after a good cleaning out. At my worst I'm capable of thinking that the Moon is made of cheese, and quite willing to debate it. Still, lets all make the most of the good times, and smell the roses in the bad times. Having said that, I do read my Postes all the time, it's better than a massage. westwind.

    Such a site may have been created to take ideas from others and use them for profits, that thought had clearly crossed my mind about a month ago.

    Let me put your mind at rest. Your own ideas are safe in this regard.

    Dear John Galt. I have been following your Postes on other Threads, let me commend you on your forbearance, tact, and diplomacy. Any Threads or Postes that I contribute to The Science Forum are out there for all to profit from, or be driven to despair. It's not what you get in Life that is important, its what you give up. I've given up long ago. No, No, I just said that for fun. Never give up, unless the other bloke is bigger than you. westwind.
