Everyone play nice. . . .
Without holding the bar high we leave the door open to an anne halonium type circle-jerk (To be clear I am not saying her methods were shit or not, we just never got proof of anything and we all lost valuable time out of our lives). Which benefits no one and makes this site a laughing stock in the OMC. I certainly do not want that to happen since I think the work done here is VERY important.
To me it sounds like some members want different things from this forum, I personally think that there should be other forums made to handle wacky grow stuffs that do not fit into the category of actual science. I think that a forum dedicated to wackiness is a great idea but the two should not mix or it will be a real bitch to moderate as well as sift through for the information that one is looking for. Having the edible grows lumped into the magic forum, or any of the twilight zone stuff bleeding into other forums comes to mind.
This. We will outline the rules for the forum shortly. We don't want to have a repeat of that kind of circle jerk again, I agree, and that is why I am all for making two forums, one for whacky experimental stuff, a safe place to experiment, and also another scientific methods based sub forum for real honest science. If members want to start espousing funny ideas, let them do it in the experiment forum, but keep it there.
If members want to take their funny ideas and prove they work scientifically and release it as something that "works" they can post an actual scientific experiment with full disclosures on methods and get it peer reviewed before advising other people (new growers) to do it.
Catattack, nobody is picking on you, I hope. Lots of us here are scientists at heart, and are prone to asking lots of questions.
Everyone be nice. This is an important discussion that can help us figure out exactly what we should do with this Myco Lab forum, but only if we are civil to each other.
