    I wonder if this WEB Science belongs to a University, Study Centre or Company (Public or Private?).


    Thanks

    Its owned and overseen by a private citizen.

    No. Why do you ask?

    OK...thank you very much...then only one person mid 20 scientific is the owner.

    I only wanted to know it to understand better were I am...I thought it belonged to a University...or sonething like this.

    But why can't university create public forum like this? (seems like private ownership is better at making forum )

    And what difference does it make, other than the fact a University would probably be far more ruthless than we are when confronted with pseudo and non science?

    Content makes the forum...

    I think it would be a big hassle for a university, because when someone would complain about censorship, political bias, etc. you couldn't just tell them to kiss off the way we do here on a private site.
