Since Ron Maimon has been driven away (by external SE forces against the will of the then on Physics SE active community) at the beginning of December 2012 and many other experts have left too, this is no longer the reasonably high level Physics.SE of physicists and physics enthusiasts I loved, enjoyed, and appreciated during almost two years. The site has been taken over by MO/MSO people and other non physicists who dominate the site and determine the rules of the game now.
Apart from the striking downgrading of the physics level (sporadic higher level questions about advanced topics get no longer answered and sometimes even downvoted!) and the fact that fundamental physics topics I am interested in have disappeared, too many very bad things, which should not occur on a serious physics site that upholds the scientific integrity, are now happening on Physics SE on a regular basis. The dominant people in power being very cynical and interested only in policying and enforcing detrimental and harmful rules and constraints destroys the usefulness of this site for people seriously interested in learning physics at a technical level, prevents the site from recovering from the heavy blow it had to take at December 2012, and drives academics, active researchers and students of physics and astronomy away.
Experts are not taken seriously, they have nothing to say about the site what questions are allowed, people interested in doing advanced higher level physics are no longer welcome, trolling about legitimate mainstream (theoretical) physics is allowed or even endorsed as it gets upvoted by the crowd, and the few higher level questions still left get flooded down.
Observing all these things going wrong is very painful and unhealthy for me. Whithout the SE owners, stuff, and moderators relaxing the firm stranglehold they impose on noncomputer sites too, by enforcing harmful network wide external rules and policies, Physics SE will never fully make use of its large potential to be a great place for researchers, academics, students, and enthusiasts to enjoy and learn physics together in a free and unrestricted by bureaucratic obstructions way.
