    Play nice boys, we don't want another flame thread here.

    Dino, don't take things so personally, Joe is basically stating, Tony didn't like the BS and he had a good reason to be torqued off. Most of the frustration does come from younger, inexperienced growers on here, but some also comes from the mature people. Don't take everything so personally, if your name was mentioned, then you can be angry [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Sorry I missed all this. Why did Tony Leave? I got that it had to do something with annoying posts but what ones, or how?

    It's somewhere in the games thread - something like the 10th page. I didn't catch it either until afterwards, but frankly I don't blame him at all.

    LoL, NG, I hardly think 'more mature' is the proper terminology to describe the very few adults that we have had to ban here. But I know what your saying.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    No, it's not all kids, but as NG said, they are the key demographic. But that doesn't mean Tony, or SuperimposedHope, or any of us here have anything against kids, this site is for education, and lets face it, most of the people seeking knowledge in the world, are kids and teenagers. (oh that the quest would never stop for adults. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ) that being said, i find it pleasingly ironic that the vast majority of the kids/teenagers here are the ones helping to educate!

    Don't forget Nepenthes Gracilis is only 17...that qualifies him as a kid in my book, and he's doing okay, lol. Of course, I have two little girls, no boys, and my wife says she has three kids.
    Anyhow, the way Tony split, I got the impression he wasn't going to read posts, so begging him here to come back here might not get his attention.
    Dustin, you have more contact with him then most of us..how is he doing?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    A mature kid Joe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Well........I figured someone would ask me to spill the beans, so here goes.

    I did indeed chat with Tony and he is well. The taxes for the year really have him worked up, as that would do to anyone, and he has calmed down alot. I will not say what his decision is, to come back and no longer be a moderator, or come back, or leave altogether. I do not speak for him and cannot make up his mind, although some people would like that to be true! But he has not vanished off the face of the earth. Perhaps he just needs some time to chill, have a beer or two and just have some collective thinking time.

    True, but 17 is pretty much past the silly drama and Mr. gracilis is the babysitter not the babysat........so to speak.

    I think I am irritating some people with my reference to kids as oppose to members in general.

    Yeah,some of the stuff that is posted in the general discussions does get out of hand and is a waste of space.
