There was a slight lull at SF for a few months till a few weeks ago. The usual, , vigorous discussion is again back. With this another worry has started popping up in yours truly's thoughts. The questions is whether we have hit analysis paralysis? If yes what should we do. If not then what precautions we might take? Ummah is big and armchair intellectuality can not be haraam but it can take you only this far. So what are the possibilities beyond the confines of SF? This one can be discussed in another thread. There is another aspect that can be discussed in a separate thread - what have we achieved at SF? There is yet another aspect that yours truly is curious about. We have several private discussion groups of people churned out by our institution and at least at one of them I have seen comments that their discussion has found place in academic publications. Has SF too made a similar impact? I have seen a thread at another forum about their impact and I can say that they will be better off without the type of impact they are making.
