Re: Please Stop...
If what I am interested in is researching then I would use sources suitable for that. Not this group. This group is for socializing. And that includes having the same certain conversations over and over. It includes having discussions with new as well as longer time beekeepers.

In the first two years I visited this group I was told to read books among other things. I was even given specific books to read. I woudl then often answer questions from what I had read. several times, Often in fact I would be criticized for answering questions when I has so little experience. The very people that recommended I do all that reading did not even recognize it when it was put in a post. So I asked them to correct whatever they saw wrong in what I had posted. not once was anyone able to make a correction. In one instance the offended person outright admitted there offense was about nothing more than they thought I had not been a beekeeper long enough. Even though I had been a beekeeper long enough to know and share more than they had.
I know nothing about another persons ability to understand or follow advice. So I do not agree that because I post how I do things makes me responsible for them trying it and failing. The choice to follow any advice is theirs. and the responsibility for the outcome is on them. There are those that should never follow any advice offered by anyone. they are not capable of doing so. Often they simply pick some advice to follow for no other reason than to have someone to blame when they fail.
