F=0...What makes it all worth while is
the quality of the journey.

I know a bs artist when I see one and
there is no gladness in pointing to it.

One reason some posts are so long
is its value in concealing the fact
of talking in endless circles
or, metaphorically, Mandelbrot sets.

This can be an effective trick to attract
real thinkers to reveal ideas
not currently in possession of the
anonymous "fisherman." The sources of an
idea will thus probably not be credited
since they revealed it to an anonymous
harvesting troll..

If one finds 10 paragraphs by an anonymous
that first seem like Phi.sci. and on
closer inspection are just silly...
one should look more closely at the rest
of the paragraphs. I see it would reveal
that poster rarely put forth real ideas.
