PLEASE READ! Regarding Political Threads & Posts
The admin & mods have been engaged in an ongoing discussion about the latest thread that focused on a protest. We have come to the conclusion that we did indeed need to remove the full thread, as having only one opinion expressed was not fair nor respectful to our members.
We would like to strongly suggest to not discuss politics on TGN as per the rules. I know that this can become difficult to discern when both food & medicine can get entangled with politics. As for Covid-19 and politics (including theories of origin, cures and similar), we will be removing a number of more sensational threads already posted and remove new ones that we feel violate the rules and steer us away from what our focus should be on TGN. Please do not get personally offended if we remove a post/thread. We are doing this to clean up the forum from past Covid confusion (do a little housekeeping) and move forward in a more focused, undivided, kind & positive way, which all of us are in need of, especially now.
We want to focus on respectful, uplifting, positive content, growing our own food & medicine, & growing our community in a healthy, upbeat way, which is what was intended when TGN was founded.
I need to apologize publically to @cre8tiv369. The action taken was not intended to appear one sided. Thank you for being willing to clearly address your concerns to the mods. This is part of why we are here and addressing us respectfully with concerns is certainly welcomed.
As moderators, we are still learning to navigate this new challenge of Covid discussion on TGN and it has often been very difficult to know which way is up sometimes, to say the least. It is certainly new territory, and a charged one, one with which we have no previous experience in dealing with.
I want you to know that we have now removed the entire thread.
