A lot. Muddle - but cost isn't the issue here (this has been a lovely forum, free to all-comers). It somehow seems to show a lack of respect when the people involved aren't, seemingly, taken seriously.
I, for one, respect all the hard work that is put into this forum from GW. They run the forum with a refreshingly light touch, and only step in when absolutely necessary. And as a result, with a few notable exceptions, the board users offer respect to the board and to other members. The odd spat is part and parcel of life in the world of the internet, and generally all is well.
We aren't all grumpy reactionaries - we are bound together by a love of plants/gardening/wildlife. The ability to interact easily with each other is the glue that holds us together. Suddenly it seems like someone has found a way to dissolve the glue! ((poor analogy, perhaps. Or a very poor "purple patch". But heartfelt, nonetheless).
