What an awful thing it would be to drive off someone who may have a piece of the puzzle we are trying to put together.

I only learned of this problem yesterday when an administrator sent me a message. I didn't realize that you could type under someone's quote. I figured that would be like putting words in their mouth and confusing the issue.

Dale: please try to keep the "quote" and your response in the same post. Not something I'm gonna delete, but what you are doing is so contrary to the norm that I've even had people complaining to me about it.
No,not at all like Dale Hodgins. I doubt that there's much we agree upon. Please don't include my name in any further postings unless it's to do with building or agriculture. I fully accept the way the forum is operated and don't pretend to have any insights in this matter. Any comparisons you've made between us is highly speculative since we've only met on the site and I've never written anything like that here.
I would agree with much of what dale hodgins has written, with one possible caveat
I for one, (Perhaps similar to Dale Hodgins in this respect?) have learned and become saturated with the conviction that I am one of the last sane people on Earth, surrounded by the subjects of an ever-thinning gene pool, raised in a TV society of funny insanity, colorful stupidity, and a hundred levels of bull and corruption; So I often find myself speechless in my pity of them all most every time they open their mouths...
Is it acceptable or even common practice for someone to plan out their entire farm, building plans and permaculture business on a public forum.
Is the volume of material I'm producing problematic?
Is it acceptable to use the forum to solicit business provided that business is of a green building, recycling and organic gardening nature? I wouldn't be trying to sell cabbages, but would be seeking employees, tenants and farmers who may want to allow me to bring my tour bus to their location.

I'm not trying to tell you how to run your forum
I am only appealing to what is reasonable and considerate.
Sometimes this can seem unfair, especially if you are kudzu.
