I never post there but once in awhile I check it out and I can no longer find it.Sometimes it got very intense so maybe it was removed. Anyone know.
It is there, go to Forums click Garden Forums~~~scroll down a bit it is there, you have to hunt in the alpha list for it;)
It is still there....google hot topics gardenweb
We need a shot of "Hot Topic" now and again ...
... to get the blood pumping, don't we?
I just checked there and yes, alive and well and ... "debating."
If "debating" can define the exchange, lol!!!!!! I'm on that forum a lot and it can get really weird-- that may be an understatement.
Don't forget, GW has it listed under Garden Forums, alphabetically, above Houseplants.
Well, there's a sign on the door, so you know where you are going when you walk in. No one can complain that they didn't know what was coming.
Old post, but will have to look for something exciting.
I am not at all happy with this CHANGE I just discovered!!!!!!!
Jacquelyn, it's still here. You dredged up an old discussion.
It's under Gardening, and then Houseplants, where it always has been
Here is the link
Hot topics is still there pump toad. I tried it for a couple of days. The best I can say about the people there is ,don't expect a warm reception. Maybe that's just me.
It is true that Hot Topics is not a "thank you for sharing" forum. But it's a good place to keep up with current events and what people think about them. Sticking around, one might get a broader perspective or embrace a point of view not previously considered. We do get our share of drive-bys who come in to lob a bomb then disappear; those who can grind a point down to where it's no longer recognizable... but that's the nature of a free discussion.
Duluthinbloomz...I take your point. Perhaps I landed in the wrong topic. To me it was a lecture, not discussion. I'll check out another topic and hope to find a discussion.
I remember your screen name, but can no longer remember the thread. I'm not an apologist for HT, but I'm generally interested in the topics. We do get lectured to on occasions, but that's where the SOB (scroll on by) comes in handy. Lots of intelligent, well-informed people on that forum, but it tends to not be highly regarded in some quarters.
Duluthinbloomz...I don't remember the thread either. In retrospect maybe I should have looked around more than I did before taking issue. I went back to look around with different expectations and started to enjoy myself. Thanks your time to set me straight.
Ps. What's up with your name?
Duluth is where I live - on the shores of the greatest of the Great Lakes. It was summer when I first registered at GW and the gardens were blooming... there was a bit of being stumped thinking up a screen name also.
Now I get it. That was some stretch for a screen name:-)
I spent a few wks around superior in late fall, it was breath taking. The leaves and lake so big it creates it's own weather. I don't know whether to be envious or sympathetic for you in the winter.
