... you really do need to have a unique game feature if you are going to be asking money for the game, especially a space trading game on the PC as you have that ten ton gorilla sat in the corner known as Oolite which is free.

It's from a thread on SSC... the guy has some very interesting cockpit stuff going-on.

I blame PAG for that! Mostly, the job involves posting pics in the Oolite subforum, and sneaking some quality music and other fluff into the Pioneer subforum.
I'm almost tempted to take up playing Pioneer, purely so I can drive its devs crazy with dumb-pilot questions... but I won't!

Nonsense wrapped in jargon will do that. I made the mistake of looking up the original paper in case the BBC had completely misunderstood it ... and, well, for once they've made a decent summary of the important points.

Here's a self-quote, which was interestingly proved correct only today on the Frontier forum.

"The higher the average IQ in a community, the more likely it is that chaos will ensue".

The rationale:
Intelligent people have opinions. The higher their intelligence then the more they value their own opinions and the more likely they are to defend those opinions in the face of the opinions of other people. Hence they will argue that their opinion is correct even in the face of other opinions that may agree with 99% of their own opinion.

Now if everyone in the discussion has the same or similar level of intelligence, the more likely they in turn will have an ego about it, thus perpetuating the argument ad infinitum.

And thus explaining why I was thrown off Mensa's forums for being a ****. ;-)

Hmm... which says what about this mostly chaos-free forum that we frequent here?
