quote:Originally posted by gsmollinMy first response was "NO WAY!", but I have reconsidered. We have forums for general science, physics, cosmology, biology, geology, medicine, chemistry, even paleonotology. Computer science IS a bona-fide science. I imagine Cambridge has a CS department. So, on that basis, there could be a CS forum. In fact, perhaps there should be a CS forum, and we have been remis in not having a CS forum.That having been said, I now will record my reservations, the original reason I said "NO WAY!": A CS forum could be spammed out of existence with "help desk" requests. Everybody needs help desk from time-to-time (except me, who can do anything in computers, assuming I have administrative rights). So I could see the forums getting filled with that stuff. Help desk is not CS. CS is just that, so somebody with a question about compiler design, network theory, or how a barrel-shifter works would be justified in posting a question. Somebody who's got a virus on his computer has got to call Symantec for assistance, or RTFM. On the other hand, a discussion about viruses, Tojan horses, and worms is a valid forum issue.So there you have my opinion about a CS forum, and that is all I have to say about that.
