    Greetings,

    Just wondering why there isn't a Politics section. It would fit under either 'People' or 'International Issues'. Politics can, and often does have a significant effect on scientific development so I do think it would be pertinent to include it somewhere.
    Thanks.

    It is the fear of the administration that a Politics section will, at this point, create a section littered with flame-broiled posts and ruin the overall atmosphere of the board.

    This does not mean that there will never be a politics section, merely that on this point of time, we do not feel that such an action would be a prudent course of action.

    Mr U

    Know what's funny? When you said that, I pictured Bush Sr. saying, "Wouldn't be prudent at this juncture...."

    We already have politics on this board. Just not the kind about governments and blahdy blah.

    This is rather an opprunity. Here we have mature people that will discuss it in the same way as we are discussing philosophy.

    well might i sugest the partner site at the bottom of the page,
    politics is intertwined in science, but not the
    blahdy blah.

    Stumble on through life.
