I post some pictures of bonsai and no one pays any attention. but start a flame war and it gets 1647 views, so that tells me I'm in the wrong place, this really is the board for snakes to spew venom, I'm out of here, too bad that you people would rather fight that discuss bonsai, back to BT.

Oh please. "Save the drama for your mama" as a dear friend of mine like to say. If'n you don't like the action simply don't come back. Or come back but don't post. The announcement is nothing but fuel for a needless fire.

I say this as I gave up on a board a while ago but that board was bonsaiTalk. I gave up on this one too but it's easier to drop by here and check in once and a while. Sometimes there is good action and sometimes like lately it's nothing but "mama drama".

A side note of the opinion variety - I think the flare ups are related to all of you who live in snow areas. Winter bla or whatever you all call it. I see it every year, the posts are effected and turn the same direction. Things seem to clear up as soon as the better weather arrives. Sorry bout the snow and all but... you always have the option like I did. Leave the great white north and NEVER go back. I am a little upset as it's going to drop to 30 degrees here tonight and that is cold for Florida folks. Please excuse my weather related outburst.

And Harry I meant no offense or insult. I enjoy seeing photos of your trees. Honestly I would love to have some of your outcasts. Hope to see you around.

What ever Graydon,old farts don't play games, we tend to call a spade a spade. Check me out on BT if you would like to see some of my trees.

I invited everyone to come to Vegas, it is 7:19PM and still 70F. Did any of you take me up on it? Nope. Not only that but the hotels all have great deals on. Sit home and be miserable if you want. I did invite everyone.;)

Hey Harry,

I know what you are saying.... Last month in a big flare up here on the Nut, I posted a tree to try and get some bonsai related discussion going......386 views and not 1 comment http://bonsainut.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1496 , so be happy you are atleast getting some love! haha Maybe my pictures are horrible, it is a junk tree (Which I know it is not, it is a killer tree) or people just have nothing to say??? Not sure.

But I did come to the same conclusion as you, they would rather argue, call names and see who has the bigger unit then discuss a tree.

Oh well, I will keep posting on my blog, it see a fair amount of traffic. I need to learn to embed photos so I can post better pics....

Harry, Jason, what is it you want to hear? Great tree 10 or 20 times? What could someone like me (who has only been doing bonsai for about 3 years) have to comment on other than "great tree"? Am I being punished for not commenting? Well if you take your marbles and go home and quit posting trees, that's what it feels like. I/we are being punished because some of the more expierienced members are too busy flaming away on other threads to post comments. So people like me, that mostly lurk on the sidelines, who are here to hopefully pick up a few tips or learn a few things loose out?
The flame wars will pass, they always do. I assure you that in a month or so people will be outside working on thier trees instead of getting caught up in these childish arguments and will again have something worth reading.
Tell ya what fellas, I'll make more of an effort to get off my lazy arse and post a few trees for you guys to laugh... er I mean comment on and maybe we can get back on the path to bonsai enlightenment.

Harry, times havn't changed since the days of Rome and Julius Brutus. Gladiator combat is still the favorite past time. Only now we take pleasure in pounding the Horticulturally dysfunctional nerds into submission .

Are you kidding me? BT is the mother of all flame war sites, just go over there and post anything but ohhs or ahhhs about any of the "gitterati" trees...but be careful, they have banned at least two people for suspicion of being me, and accused countless others of the same thing, lmao. :D No worries though, because when anyone who challenges the follow the leader, blind sheep, groupie mentality is accused of being me, I take it as a compliment.

Hell some of the most viewed and most responded to threads over there were started by me or are about me and I've been banned from there for years.....

Seriously, stop with the "somebody done somebody wrong songs" and just go if that is what you want to do. What the hell are threads like this for anyhow, are the posters of such swan song threads hoping to be begged not to go?

Were all adults here, ignore crap that you don't like, create more of the crap you do like, just don't whine about it. Here's a news flash.... we're never going to agree on every subject, so what? These flame wars start when people can not our will not stay on the subject and resort to insults, name calling, and off topic posts. A prime example in your case is where you popped into a thread on superthrive and started posting that the discussion or results did not matter. If they really didn't matter, you wouldn't have posted in a thread you claimed didn't matter, get my point? Let others discuss what matters to them without poping in just to toss gasoline in like a large number of people already do, just look at the recebnt threads, and you can see people that came back just to pile on, don't be one of them and if you are, don't complain about the resulting fire.

See you around, or maybe not :D

No Mary, I am not punishing you for not commenting. I was just pointing out that a thread with a nice tree gets no action vs a thread of fighting.... I know, those threads are like car wrecks, everyone has to check it out.

No worries Mary...

Sorry Mary, come over to BT and you can see my trees anytime, I try to post fairly often some pictures for people to enjoy or comment on, I can take genuine criticism quite well for my age, you either like my trees or you don't. You may see something you would do different, that's fine with me. It doesn't always have to be "nice tree"

Over 170 posts and 1800 views and what conclusion was reached, what a waste of time and talent where it could have put to better use discussing bonsai. I will be out of here when my bonsai posts die off. Good luck to the folks that come here for bonsai, maybe they will learn something from time to time, but I doubt it. They did learn a lot about Superthrive, if you don't use it it won't work. Keep up the good work Will, where would bonsai be without you.

You're just wasting your breath Steve, you might as well be telling a vampire to quit drinking blood. Will gets off causing trouble and will never admit it, it's always someone else fault. Look at all the flame wars on this board and see who's in every last one of them. If you can find one without Will in the middle of it, I'll send you some steaks from Omaha Steaks.

Steve I am so happy that I made life a little more enjoyable for you. Have I ever told you how much I love Canada and their people? Steve, I am trying with every cell in my body to help you grow plants with sound horticultural practices. Now I must be blind. Can you show me one contribution Hot Air has made? The plant on the marble statue doesn't count. lol's

Ummm no about Canada and our people ....

I do appreciate your efforts....

I have read several articles by (him) and some of them appear to make sense - and few of the refutations seem to work.....

KK, before I go, please answer a question for me. Why the woody for Canadians, did you catch a case of something up there or they wouldn't let you in during the Vietnam War, I'm dying to know.
