Oh Deary me. I can see another locked or removed thread.
Digger my friend. What exactly are you driving at?
In part from what I think? I understand from your post is. That so many replies to perhaps serious questions, for some reaso tend to stray off, so to speak into day to day gossip.
My friend. Take time to check back through the posts. Yes even I once commented on this matter, but, hopefully not in the same lite as you.
Not boasting etc, but this is the way I view this forum. First and foremost. I consider it as being the best if not at least within the top three gardening forums. Let's be honest. Even I at tgimes have to refer to the books and data bases before replying to a question. So, and this is awkward to explain. Some of the questions folk ask can at time try our patience. However we do our best to answer in an honest and positive way. That is the moment we realise that. Hey, one day in the past. That might have been me asking that very same question. Then you comment on tghe familiarity of some forum members. Digger this goes on everywhere. I still suscribe to a police forum. Us old uns have built up a real strong bond. So we laugh and joke and at times tease newbies, so what.
Digger. Beleieve me. I have taken a lot of stick on this forum. Water under the bridge. To me the folk on here are good honest and loyal. So what's wrong with a bit of chit chat, and whose been baking etc. Digger. I am a longtime gardener/horticulturist plus scientist. Might I say. I am at last realising the fact. That there is more to life than being long faced and serious all the time. Please my friend. Lossen up and enjoy life.
