Nah, not the whole site Jim; that all's;) a conspiracy theory!
The bigger conspiracy theory is what VS has done to the moderators' ability to make modifications to this site. To what end I do not know, but the ability to change this site for the better no longer resides with us. There is, to the best of my understanding, no anti-science bias. Many of the members here also appreciate the discussions on BEE-L.

Just a guess, but perhaps many of the prolific thread starters post from a work account. Have seen other normally busy email lists slow down to a trickle during the holidays. Used to see similar patterns 'back in the day' on Usenet.
My thought was that the site owner and sole operator is taking a break. Maybe it is not so but I thought each and every post was reviewed and vetted. Dec 23 is last post date.

Some forums do demand a higher level of support for positions put forth by a user. They would probably scare off most lower experienced people. Kind of a balancing act. If a forum descends into to much food fight behavior it soon spins off a lot of quality users.

The chemistry of a forum does not have a simple formula.:unsure:

Predates my time here on Beesource then, or maybe I am projecting. I would like to see the sub-forum used in much the same way Bee-L is done in that one should support their statements with a reference to a published paper, or clearly state it is an opinion. Lot of fake facts get tossed about and even peer reviewed research can draw erroneous conclusions. I welcome Mr. Fischer's contributions to this site.

I hope Aaron is enjoying himself. We will probably get flooded with emails once he has a chance to review them.

from a post yesterday "
Aaron Morris, passed away this morning from pancreatic cancer.
He taught at all the in person NY Bee Wellness workshops over the years. It was all very sudden.
I am glad we had the opportunity to learn from him.
He will be missed.

Yes, Aaron has passed away.

Its hard to lose someone so suddenly, and unfair that after so many years toiling away as a database admin, he had so little of his retirement to enjoy. The lesson here is to never defer on the enjoyment part of life. Never work for jerks, don't skip that vacation, take the wife on that trip to Paris as soon as everyone's vaccinated, and so on.

Its always later than you think it is.
