Posting that link to the Philosophy section got me looking through it.  Apparently roughly 2 1/2 years ago the same "complaint" was posted by the same person, with very similar reactions! : http://www.fractalforums.com/philosophy/too-many-philosophy/

I don't know why, but I find that quite amusing...

I understand lyc, but I think he was a bit too harsh. For me, usually, the internet is a whole sink of (bull)shit. All of this Youtube-crap, FB-drama, dA-rama..., whatever crap-a-rama... are just a overload of time-wasters for me.
But fractalforums.com is a place I always like to come back, even if I have not much time. I enjoy the full spectrum. The mathematical stuff posted by jehovah as well as some new formulas in Spanish or even deeper zooms made with Kalles Fractaler even if I never was interested in deep zooms (seriously). It is the unbroken spirit to find something (new) which attracts me.

This isn't complaint. Is a notice for sustain fractals. I just like fractals and had fascinated by fractals when I'd child. flowers praying
I wanting to ensure that forum working good, and the science of fractals working good.
Also I'm revolted that maths don't be appreciated in my country, and don't exist jobs as mathematician in my country.

Fascinating how different the perception of some things is. For me the internet is the best thing that ever happened to mankind - it enables us to instantly communicate and connect across the globe, bypass 'filtered information' of the old media or corporate greenwashing. we can start businesses from home, work from home, everyone, even the very poor now have access to all knowledge of mankind.
It levels the playing field.

I don't understand how you can call all this a sink of bullshit..
Of course there are timekillers. There have to be, after all theres EVERYTHING online.
Just like a huge percentage of TV is crap (or newspapers, or books, or ancient fairy tales) you always have to be selective, everyone is responsible for his own interests and what you 'consume'. (though we should teach our children better how to deal with these medias!!)

You don't need to participate in everything. I don't like facebook at all, worst timekiller. There are much better ones, like reddit or pinterest  grin not to forget fractal forums..
I don't see much of a difference between our image section and deviant art.
And our movie section wouldn't be possible without youtube.

There's always two sides of the coin.. I try to live happier by focussing on the 'right side' and just ignore the crap.

besides that: I don't see any of facebook, youtube, deviantart or whatever crap-arama-drama here.
It exists, but here at ff?  where? still waiting for a link.
(Or I've become too good in ignoring  the crap wink
Or, maybe I'm one of the producers of said crap and just don't realize it.  afro


@hgjf2:
I guess most of us share that fascination for fractals - that's probably why we're here.
But we all have different stories that led us to fractals. Mine was the beauty of them and the fact that they are all around in nature.
I'm actually revolted that this isn't appreciated worlkdwide, that there is no distinct field of studies for fractals, although they are very obviously omnipresent everywhere you look.
Something clearly is wrong.
Focussing on just the math of fractals or just focussing on trippy pictures and videos or how to generate them is - that in my opinion plays a major role why something is wrong.
It's exactly the other way around than you say.
Ignoring fractals in nature and the philosophical questions that they raise is what does the real, long term damage to fractals.
It is like just caring for basic quantum mechanics or physics and saying that all the universe that evolves from that is not worth mentioning.

my 2 cents..

(btw, ever noticed how we say "a penny for your thoughts" but when giving our opinion it's 2 cents, or even 3 wink our own opinion is worth double..)

Then please accept my apologies if I misunderstood your intent and my thanks for clarifying things.

No worries about repeating the same topic two and a half years later either, I was amused - not annoyed - by that.  It surely has been long enough that reposting it will reach a whole new audience  (I even forgot about the old topic until I saw it again).  Just don't repeat it every month or two   tease

And as Chillheimer said, it is all part of a greater whole.

I'm forgotten that I written allready this topic 1 year ago. But I can't delete my old topic.


We like to keep the forum history complete.  Deleting the old thread you made would also delete posts made by others, some of which were very insightful, and there is no need for that.

Look at the discussion this thread has started!  That is not a bad thing.  As I said before, we welcome all viewpoints here - even those we disagree with on some level   afro

Hi, I meant unmoderated places (which are the most). But, certainly this is not the main focus of this discussion, so we should stop here, I just wanted to make clear this one point.

Cheers!

One other case of working against maths and fractals is revealed.
The porn video "soft nudity" placed at section "film" at current competition SPAM !!! , is promovated. A cause of FRACTALFORUMS make fractals shame.
I'm so sorry to post this  sad . But I must defending the honority of maths.
If this film whick might to be banned, is promovated, else FRACTALFORUMS risquing to receive spams with generical pills, and I wantn't that FRACTALFORUMS to be infected with spams. I known this from my email address used and social networks used. FRACTALFORUMS must remaining the cleanest and the most educated social network from world.

That video has been approved by the moderators and they are trying to keep the forums clean from spam but we don't consider this to be spam. Then, we wouldn't even be able to have a nice contest if everything should be about mathematics.

One other case of working against maths and fractals is revealed. ..

This is the third time you have posted this complaint.  You were told each time that a small amount of nudity, which is Clearly Marked with a warning for those who may find it offensive, does NOT elevate to the level of porn.

We realize some repressed people and repressive cultures may frown upon it, but that does not make it pornography.  Much of the Fine Art hanging in museums all over the world has more explicit stuff in plain view with no warnings at all!

You have had this explained repeatedly and now it is your comments that are bordering on spam   police

You don't have to like it, or look at it.  But you do have to accept that it is Art, and has a place here.

Perhaps you mistake us for a science and math forum?  We are that, and more!  We are a Fractal Art forum - and Art is just as important as Fractals here.

Please realize that you are over reacting and it is not something that repeating yourself will change.

This porn video is at post "COMPO 2016 REVIEW BY WEAVERS".

I don't know why you think this is porn.  You are wrong!

Again - go to an Art Museum and make those statements about the Art they display and see if they agree.
