Science and technology need to be separated into different forums. Every time I browse this forum looking for cool science related stuff I am faced with numerous threads asking about HDTV's and cable television service, et al.

Please, separate the two.

In other forums I notice the mods move non-related items to the correct area. Perhaps we can get one of them to keep an eye on this one.

Edit: On second thought they should create a Television and Related forum. Putting it under Sci and Tech makes sense.

The referenced problem, though, is if too many people are asking highly individualized tech questions, the science questions drop off the page in a day or two.

Cool. If there are separate sub forums for cell phones/PDAs, computers, and the internet it only makes sense.

Thanks Shadowcaver! It's appreciated, as always.

Now, if we could just get a separate forum for:

Remote Controls
Cables, cable, cables
Those Darn Cable Companies

and a few others we'd be all set!
