i thought this was a physics forum open to all,but it is very elitist and moderated to suit,your way or no way.i may not be able to speak the language of science naming certain "laws and formulas" but i understand most of what i read and find that with all your "schooled learning" you have lost the ability to think outside the box.i came here hopeing for some kind of input but got closed down,i thought "science" was open to everyone but it seems it is a closed circle here.does it hurt to give help to others who have no where else to go or perhaps helpful guidance?once you define something you put it in a box where it then loses its ability to grow.i am sorry to post this but i see this trend of group snobbery is growing into many areas and saddens me,i have time for everyone whoever or whatever they are.i am not closed to anything,without one piece you have an incomplete picture....i've had my say sorry again for polluting this ivory tower.
First, it's not a forum, it's a Q&A site.
But more importantly: while this site is open to everyone, in the sense that we don't require any particular academic or other qualifications to join, it is an expert level site. That means that we expect contributors to understand the physics relevant to the question they want to ask. In other words, when you want to contribute you have to do so using the language of science, or something close enough to it that we can understand what you're talking about. (See points 1 and 2, especially, of this blog post for a more in-depth discussion of what I'm getting at.)
If this is a problem, there are some other physics sites on the web (e.g. Reddit Physics and Physics Forums) which might have different standards for what they expect of contributors, so it's possible that you may get more useful feedback there.
All I can do for you is direct you to the FAQ. In particular, I recommend to you the parts where it says that you should not post questions that are "[p]itches for your own personal theories or work", where it says that you should stick to "practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face", and of course the part where it talks about why some questions are closed.
The site is open to all---and indeed to anonymous use for writing questions and answers--but we reserve the right to police it to maintain a focused and useful environment for other users. We have a community here that has done a lot of work to create a useful resource for getting physics questions answered. We'd like to keep it that way.
Mark, I can understand your frustration, and physics is sometimes very difficult even for trained professionals. I would agree that sometimes the comments made could be done in softer tones, however, there are reasons why people who love physics get defensive. First of all, knowledge is perishable, even in this day in age of instantaneous answers, noise can frequently obscure what has been shown as fact within certain structures of logical reasoning. At some level that is what physics is, a structure of logical reasoning about the world. I think most physicists actually strive everyday to be able to think of something new to say about the world, however they need to be respectful of all the facts that have been determined before. My only word of advice is to not be discouraged. I think if you really want to learn, people will do their best to help, however, there are certain things that people have shown actually work and have studied intensely and will not accept certain answers they know are wrong. Just keep moving and eventually a lot of this will make sense.
