Wall for physicsnewbie

The red-server error for messages is a bug, but usually the message goes through anyway, leading to multiple resends if you try again. Check the wall before reposting.

Hi Physicsnewbie,

I have written you a new message, which is probably in your mailbox ...

Hi Physicsnewbie,

yes, I used to call in particular the ruling class on other Physics Q&A sites  and judge their capability failure to properly decide about the fate of high-level questions there as I experienced it etc ... outside PhysicsOverflow. Here on PhysicsOverflow I do not.

Hi Physicsnewbie,

I am sorry that the reputation change hit you too, as you often have good useful things to say.

Can you ask a good question?

What's this dummy user business? Maybe you should ask on meta. Users are supposed to be 1 per  person. If you mean users like "Schrodinger'sGhost" or whatever, they aren't tied to people, they are administrative things. I don't know what dummy users you see here. All the active users are people, and all the inactive users are people on other sites.

Please do not plagiarize other people's content, even if legal. It is unethical, even if not illegal. Think up your own material.

Hi physicsnewby,

I was slightly active on TP.SE and some of my SE posts are imported into the Q&A section. The rep of any meta posts is now set to zero for the public beta as discussed.

Are you active on SE? If so you maybe have on-topic posts for PhysicsOverflow that can be imported too? You can suggest them here

Have you seen Larry Harson on Physics.SE?

Huh? Why have you copied one of your posts here?

Hi physicsnewbie,

What did you mean here? : http://www.physicsoverflow.org/trollsouthere14/user/Dimensio1n0/wall ?
