    I'm not here to dictate organic policy to your industry. I'm here to help y'all learn what organics is all about and see if we can find a profitable way to implement it for those clients who want it. If you have no clients asking for it, and you do not intend to implement any organic methods or materials, I think you'll find this forum boring.

    I just do not understand why the discussion that was taking place on 6-19-08 on this thread on soil conditioners was removed. It was a good and thought provoking discussion on Humus and Mycorrhizae surely everyone could have learned something from that discussion. It just makes me sick that it was removed from public view , where is the Freedom of Speech ? As far as I can tell he was not in violation of any forum rules. Or am I missing something here, other people on here have talked about products that are out there for everyone to use, Steward of the Land was just trying to be helpful . So I ask again why was it removed? Can you answer it on this forum?

    Thank you

    It is also listed in Rule #1 that

    Advertising of any kind is not permitted at this site unless you are a sponsor.

    That is why those posts were removed

    How is a discussion about Humus and Mycorrhizae advertising for a product line??

    Did you even bother to read what the discussion was about???

    Obviously NOT!

    There was only ONE reference to Soil Secrets where as the rest of the discussion was on the topic of Humus and Mycorrhizae!!!!!!!!!

    I didn't read the thread but it's his ball and he's going home. We've grown to amazing numbers on this site and have been through some real interesting events over the years. I've had some posts removed and gotten a couple of private messages reminded me of the rules. And I keep coming back so I must like it. If you don't like the rules then make your own site,, oops that been done before too. Make a new thread.

    I have had a few threads/posts pulled for reasons I am not sure of. I don't remember what they were about or what they said just remember thinking that it wasn't bad and didn't understand why it was pulled. I did make a thread and titled it a little off so I then made a second thread with a better title because I knew they would pull it.

    With that said, I am obviously still here also.

    If the discussion of humus and AM fungi was so informative, perhaps it should be restarted , minus the advertising. :)
