For example, things went off the rails when Walstad stopped by a while back. But guidelines were enforced, offending threads and users were removed, and it seems the community survived. I realize we should strive for better outcomes than "survival," but considering how heated things got it could have been worse. I think we have guidelines and responsible moderators to
thank for that!
I challenged one of her statements made here.
She replied and agreed and all was done!
Yes, it did get ugly as the thread rolled on!
Diana is now a moderator on APC if any are interested.
Many a low tech dirted tank on APC.
I have seen the demand for pics used as a way of demeaning others -- it is not always meant as a gesture of helpfulness.
Like, for instance, against Edward. Over and over again- harping on him.
He has been gone for awhile, I wonder if those involved were successful in finally shutting him down.
So, if your asking me, thank goodness this motto "pics or didnt happen" is only held to be important by some and not all members here.
may reply to this???
I've enjoyed PM's with Edward over quite some time.
He has an excellent set of photos in a thread that seems to not always work so well.
Many cannot view all of the 60 something pics.
I surely hope he has not left this community!
Not communicated with him since early November.
pics are and can be important.
Several years ago I was growing large Buce as a stem, planted like a stem.
No one would have believed me unless I posted the pics, I'm just saying!
Sadly I sold all of this off over time but it was impressive!
