    I agree with endparen..the hottest discussion here is not that hot compared to some I've seen.

    Some people just don't like debate. They should avoid threads that give the faintest whiff of debate within. According to the rules I read, this is an off topic forum. It was made quite clear.

    And if you're going to post an argument, you should be ready to defend it with facts, something approximating facts, or your own experiences. SIH liked to foment debate(I'm game!), and didn't like it when people disagreed with his opinions.

    His posting that he's leaving leads me to believe that he wants to be begged to come back.

    I am still awed and grateful that the mods and owners even ALLOWED some of these threads to show up. You don't see this kind of forward thinking very often, and I hope they don't change a thing. I didn't follow every thread, but I really didn't see anything even quasi-brutal in the ones I did follow. April

    If brisco225 didn't point this thread out to me, I would have totally missed this exodus of sort. Show's how much I read the "General Discussion" threads. I guess I've been following this philiosophy all along:

    Yeah, I stick to the Drosera/Pinguicula/Utricularia forums 90% of the time, so I miss out on all the "excitement".

    You're right, most of the people haven't been to ABSforums, have they? This place is paradise compared to there, and i still actively post there. Some people just need to toughen up, and in some cases, get some perspective.

    I didn't realize any members felt FORCED to be here. If there are members who have someone pointing a gun to their heads to log on and participate here, please contact me and we'll see about contacting the police for possible kidnapping or extortion charges.

    I always thought members come here because they want to. I always believed it to be an open venue for information and fellowship. Not a prison camp.
