Admins - What Happened to "CSM+B Toxicity Experiment" Thread??

I am wondering what happened to this thread - we had over 20 pages of activity on it as of last night. I am the OP and it's nowhere in my profile stats either.

Probably removed it since a few members were getting a bit personal. While I agree that it needed to be controlled at that point, there was TONS of great research there. If it truly was deleted that is just a shame. It probably needed to be locked or something since it was starting to get out of control. I REALLY hope it was not just deleted.....

OK, very well. I would hope you could delete the inappropriate posts and keep the rest.

Exactly, my thought..... Or suspend the members causing issues or something..... You cant delete the 18 great pages of discussion based on 2 off based pages of personal attacks, just delete the bad stuff.

My guess is they took down the thread temporarily to edit out the info the was not pertinent (i.e. personal attacks). It will probably be back up tonite with a warning to a few users.

Yeah I sure hope it's not deleted. I was subscribed to that thread and it's no longer in my subscription.
Tons of great info on that thread to take into consideration.

I kind of hope those contributing good info aren't punished/suspended. Sure, give them a warning and remind them to keep things civil, edit out the personal attacks, and have a calm debate. Discussions can always get heated, but if they are contributing reasonable information I would hope they can remain active to further keep the debate going (for the hobby sake). And so, I would hope the thread would not be locked either. Still much to be tested/learned.

I wouldn't hold my breath, either, especially if you've been on TPT for a while.

And it wasn't a few users, it was just one.

I certainly didn't contribute in the most positive light with my last post. I apologize about that. Hopefully we'll be able to gain access to the bulk of the observations on that thread. There were months worth!

Man there was some great research and personal experiences in that thread. Lots of stuff I'd planned to refer back to.

Please restore it if there's any way possible.

Just a reminder that stirring the pot is a quick way to find yourself suspended for an extended period of time or permanently banned if you have a history of pot-stirring. Seems like it's always one or two who constantly cause drama, attack others and act as if whatever issue of the moment is the end of their world.

Remember, folks, that this is a plant forum. This is not life or death. We're here to have fun, share our tanks, learn, discover and be a part of a community. You can keep it friendly or you can refrain from posting. It's pretty simple.

A few bad apples can ruin things for everybody, unfortunately, and another moderator had to move the thread from the forum TEMPORARILY so all 20 pages can be edited to remove insults and attacks. Once the moderation team gets through its to-do list (remember, we're volunteers), the thread will be edited and moved back to the main forum.
