Maybe accidentally? it's in the cider press and seems like we're all being nice

I was just getting around to posting there...

I think it's likely it was an accidental click of a button....we were just getting around to solutions  

...or someone confused 'toxinectomy' which is not in the cider press with 'toxic gick'.

I think you must be right Judith.  Must have been a mistake as I don't see any reasons listed for it.  I've unlocked it.

It appears to be accidental but I'm leaving it locked for now so as not to step on any toes in case there was a valid reason I'm not seeing yet.

The only reason I could see would be that it paints organic farming in a negative light, and thus a lurker might see it and think organic is "bad", but that is a pretty hard stretch I admit.

I do not feel that way, but just citing a potential reason???

But I have always wondered about plastic in organic farming myself. Not that regular agriculture is any better. On the dairy farm we spent $3000 a year on plastic for silage covering alone...and that was reusing all that we could.
 
Nothing? Or something? Like this tiny ad:
