The reasoning behind the price rises and the frantic buying of soya by China is all wrong of course but IMHO it shows that we are not far from Hyperinflationary disaster. Protein is as vital as the air we breath.
Dr Bubb: I think you have shot yourself in the foot. Losing Goldfinger is a poster on this blog is a disaster.
Somehow, I'm reminded of the drummer that quit Genesis and missed out on the whole adventure.
I guess I'm posting here out of habit rather than preference. I need to find another forum.
Who did the "shooting"? I didn't ask GK to leave. He chose to leave.
That is his decision not mine. If he and his entourage have left the site, that is their decision.
Obviously, I have some mixed feelings about it. We will miss intelligent commentary that some of them contributed. But the amount of critical "mud" being slung was interferring with the flow of conversation and thought development on this site - making it impossible to develop some of the more subtle topics that interest me and many others here. The "mud" will not be missed. And if some come back to throw more, they will be delt with in a more rapid fashion than before.
On the otehr hand, if GF or any of the others I call "purists", what to come and post in a constructive way, they will be welcome here.
I should emphasize this: If you want this site to be some more useful to you, then you (and others) may have to take a larger role in starting threads and keeping them alive. Else those who do continue posting may take the site in their own direction.
