    I must have missed what precipitated this, but like Lois said, it's best to praise in public and (my words) be critical in private. Try that first. If that doesn't resolve anything, then consider going to a Moderator.

    Haha, I have been reading a little here and there and I think its funny how everyone gets so worked up ; )

    There are immature people on this form and every other forum. If you feed their attention seeking behavior then the problem only gets worse, and the next thing you know in twenty years you end up with a sociopath and a dead body : p

    I kid, but everyone needs to relax a little bit. I got tired of juvenile behavior and that's why I don't really post much, but I still drop by from time to time.

    All this talk of a lynch mob mentality, the forum "changing" etc... I am not a regular poster so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but forums change and people come and go. I think this form is a great place and an excellent resource for newbies to grow and learn in this hobby, and a place for veterans to come as well.

    I am pleased to see people demanding proof of a cultivars status. This makes me very happy. I view this as the maturation of the hobby as a whole and am glad to see things like this being taken seriously. What I am disappointed in is that so many members were so easily provoked by a troll. Maybe we need a "Troll 101" sticky : )

    very true. something was different about this one though. most trolls on ANY kind of forum i belong to usualy start off with a story that is so crazy that it gets everyone on the edge of their seats. ive NEVER seen a troll post pictures of said situation. anyone remember the kid with the N. rajah that ate squirrels? heh....

    going back on track i define this kid as a kind of half troll. the offspring of a big ego and "real" person. he started off not trolling. going back on the posts of his with his introduction, his praising of TF, etc... then he got a figurative slap in the face and tried to defend his pride. therefore turning into a troll.

    thats not what any of this is about though. as stated previously. there is a lot of immaturity here and the mob mentality isnt going to make it much better. one troll gets the ban-hammer because they were mobbed... he goes back and tells all his little troll friends. apocalypse.

    I'll agree though that the overall attitude is becoming more and more bellicose around here - I often find myself choosing not to participate in discussions as such these days.

    Not sure what you mean.....things have only been a bit rocky for the last month or so.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
