OK what I have exxed out is a forbidden topic on this forum. It is best not to use the words.
How is science a forbidden topic? I don't understand why you keep censoring people's posts in your replies.
I got this one....because the subject you mentioned is a forbidden topic on this board, whether you like it or not. Some of us have received warnings and/or been suspended over it. The rationale for not using the words is that future Google searches to this board will bring unwelcome attention. @Valuethinker is thus abiding by the stated wishes of the mods.
Since science discussion is non-actionable, it may be deemed a 'trolling topic'
See Board Rules:
4. Unacceptable Topics
Politics and Religion
In order to avoid the inevitable frictions that arise from these topics, political or religious posts and comments are prohibited. The only exceptions to this rule are:
Common religious expressions such as sending your prayers to an ailing member.
Usage of factual and non-derogatory political labels when necessary to the discussion at hand.
Discussions about enacted laws or regulations that affect the individual investor. Note that discussions of proposed laws or regulations are prohibited.
Proposed regulations that are directly related to investing may be discussed if and when they are published for public comments.
Non-actionable (Trolling) Topics
If readers can't do anything with the content of a topic other than argue about it, it does not belong here. Examples include:
US or world economic, political, tax, health care and climate policies
conspiracy theories of any type
discussions of the crimes, shortcomings or stupidity of other people, whether they be political figures, celebrities, CEOs, Fed chairmen, subprime mortgage borrowers, lottery winners, federal "bailout" recipients, poor people, rich people, etc. Of course, you are welcome to talk about the stupid financial things you have done.
