PatrickW: What's up with locking the Cultural loss thread? Jun 27, 2015 14:48:34 GMT -5
rowan: I guess it was locked because it really has nothing to do with this forum. Jun 28, 2015 3:04:43 GMT -5
Joseph Lofthouse: I locked the "Cultural Loss" thread because I thought that it was off-topic. This is a forum about gardening, farming, homesteading, hunting, mushroom growing, plant breeding, land, and the farmers, homesteaders, and hunters that post to the forum. Jun 28, 2015 23:28:17 GMT -5
MikeH: Soapbox says "Got something to rant about? Feel free, but play nice." A periodic off-topic post isn't a big deal. Locking topics that are not offensive is. Pls add a sticky so that I don't follow steev into the bushes again. LOL Jun 29, 2015 3:39:29 GMT -5
PatrickW: I don't necessarily agree, but I can respect the fact that the forum has a policy and a decision was made. It would help a lot if when you locked a thread, you put a brief statement at the end of it explaining the reason. Jun 29, 2015 4:04:49 GMT -5
PatrickW: Even nicer would be if you tried just politely asking first... Jun 29, 2015 4:05:42 GMT -5
Joseph Lofthouse: Part of the reason that this forum is so pleasant to visit is because it is moderated. I delete off-topic messages most days. Jun 29, 2015 17:34:39 GMT -5
Joseph Lofthouse: I typically just delete off-topic posts. Leaving a message that I did so is like poking a hornet's nest with a stick. In this case, it was a token of respect to the participants in the "Cultural Loss" thread that I locked it instead of deleting it. Jun 29, 2015 17:35:59 GMT -5 *
steev: MikeH; That was you following me into the bushes? Good thing I don't go packing like Joseph; I thought it was a bear. BTW, you didn't think that topic was offensive? Wow! I try so hard; what a let-down. Jun 29, 2015 21:09:32 GMT -5
