4. By conducting the “double-slit” experiment DS - e - 727 - 0,1 - 2,a simple, low-cost experiment), one can automatically establish whether Quantum Mechanics is an accurate or erroneous theory of Physics.Question: Why isn’t this simple yet important Physics experiment carried out?
I consider wasting bandwidth and people's time by posting flights of fantasy across several fora to be much the same.I also think there's an important difference between someone posting "I think this but I'm not sure- can anyone help me" and "The whole of modern physics is wrong". I'm quite happy to help out in the former case. The latter case seems to be deserving of discouragement, particularly the third time they do it.
The site is not for evangelising your own pet theory. It is perfectly acceptable that you should post your own theory up for discussion, but if all you want to do is promote your own idea and are not inviting critical debate about it, then that will not be acceptable.It is not acceptable simply to repost material onto this forum that you have posted elsewhere, except where the post is specifically pertinent to an ongoing thread. If you start a thread with a post that is for all practical purposes the same as you have posted elsewhere, we will generally assume that you are evangelising, and will act accordingly.
No one is forced to reply to these loony posts. Ignoring them the best way to deal with them.
I think this obsession with having the last word....
but seriously, if you have devoted your time and energy in to a topic, should you just stop because someone either does not get it or refuses to? If that were the case then why bother replying to topics at all?
Like the Oxford Union, I don't think we ought to give a forum to these daft ideas, otoh if we delete their posts I suspect they will just repost them.If we move them to somewhere that's a "zoo" for people to come and look at oddities then I don't think people will post rubbish twice.
Anyone who has the courtesy to put their post in the form of a question is more likely to get a friendly response.
