Almost agree with that. As it is now, sci.math is a dumper where many of us come
to have a little fun, to let steam out, etc.
It doesn't serve almost for mathematics, as the excellent math.stackexchange,
but only for trolls, cranks, or any other bored cyberscum (WM, Archimedes P.,
Musatov, Herc = Cooper, Julio, etc.) to live without any fear of being kicked
out at once. These poor characters wouldn't remain active more than a few
minutes in SE, Physics Forum or any other more or less serious site, and they'd
have to dedicate their lives to make up new nicks and to have several IP numbers
in order to avoid complete eviction.
Nevertheless, it'd be nice to have a site that, besides maths, could accept open
discussions, as long as the people involved in them are minimally serious.
Too bad the intentions of 3-4 years ago to have such a moderated site here
