SIAI needed to improve as an organization, so they brought in people who they thought could run a successful non-profit. What they got was a better non-profit plus the whole accompanying spectrum of philanthropy status divas, professional beggars and related hangers-on.

Most of the original thinkers have left, replaced by those who believe in thinking, but only for fashionable thoughts.

Okay, so would you kindly point to some awful, worthless posts/comments by those awful, worthless people? And explain what makes them so awful and worthless? So that the right-thinking users can learn to avoid them?

Or, if you don't have anything specific in mind, would you at least cease insulting the community?
