I'm still new in this room but I haven't decided whether it's the type of room I want to get involved with. On the one hand I see many intelligent, informed people. On the other hand I see a lot of trolls who don't seem to know much about science, and who don't seem to be too interested in talking about God either.

The crackpots usually have scientific backgrounds and are fun to kick around. They're usually reasonably intelligent. But the trolls can be, and usually are, featherbrained losers whose emotional outbursts are no more meaningful than the extent to which it helps them alleviate some minor part of their arrested emotional development. Can't help but imagine a 35 year old still lliving at home in his parents' basement, listening to old Yes albums, and wondering how long before he can safely quit his current position as produce manager of the local Piggly Wiggly.

Has anyone appealed to the webmaster about establishing moderators? Not that I really have a whole lot of brilliant insight to offer, but for what it's worth I'm very close to writing this room off as a waste of time.
