After sleeping on this I feel a better explanation is in order. Look at the dates of these posts. At the same time several of us were asking for an Advanced Agronomy Forum with no luck. Lawnsite Elected to go Politically Correct with a Organic Forum. While this might of been the better business move, It sure was a slap in the face to a few of us when the Advanced Agronomy Forum was never acknowledged. Since no one on this forum at that time was pushing Organics, Lawnsite brought in a Homeowner who is a retired Government Civil Engineer and had never worked in the Green Industry as the moderator of that forum. To me this was even a Bigger slap in the face. A Homeowner telling a professional what to use just didn't wash with me. I have taught at a college part time but realize I don't know it all, No one does. BTW The Homeowner Moderator appears to be gone now and I am still here.

Further More the attitude of the Orgasmic crowd turned me off even more. I believe in the value of organics but live in the 21th century of modern technology. To expect me to give up everything I know works and switch to a all Tree Hugger program just wasn't going to happen. To paraphrase a quote by former Russia leader Nikita Khrushchev. We can't expect synthetic people to turn Organic over night. But we can encourage them to use more organics until one morning they wake to find they are Tree Huggers. Of course his quote was about Capitalism, Socialism and Communism.

As I rapidly approach by 69th Birthday I realize my mind is not as sharp as it once was. I no longer have any desire or the ability to lead a discussion of advanced agronomy or soil science. My ego wants to say I have forgotten more about this industry than most people know.
