This is a great idea, I find that between sports and general, culture is dealt with enough, the only thing in the art world which is controversial enough, often enough, and with global appeal (in the geography sense) to get discussed is pop culture. The photo competition and stuff ran quite well I felt on the general forum.
Science however, brilliant idea. The two snags are;
global warming/not global warming
but given how there is a clear scientific consensus on both of these issues, they could easily be relegated to religion and debates respectively without causing too much consternation amongst the users.
The posers and puzzles forum doesn't cut it, it's a back of the envelope club, which I love, but wehre do I go to discuss scientific ethics with people who understand the concept? How often have we all seen general "I wanna know" questions posted in posers and puzzles, when they really aren't posers or puzzles.
ALSO, IF THERE'S A BLOODY SPIRITUALITY AND SPORTS FORUM, WHY ISN'T THERE ALREADY A SCIENCE FORUM!
