Actually it does. But the quality of the threads is highly variable. Also it varies over time; it can be great for a week or a month and then terrible for a comparable period.

Consider checking out the thread "Constraints and Functional Dependencies." Warning: contains actual theory.

Also I note that the best way to improve the content of the newsgroup is to embody what you would like to see. A number of people here actually do want to talk about theory (not everyone) but many people find a good flamewar hard to resist. Me not excepted.

I haven't found a better one. If you do find one and you like it, please report back.
