It sure wouldn't hurt to have some of the guys from beesource dropping in and adding to the content here. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience they bring with them, certainly a benefit to each of us.
I find the personal battles between some of the members and home depot, or lowes, or walmart, or who ever as entertaining, and I would hate to think that the BB needs to be so rigid that it can't be entertaining, and I have to admit, I have on more than one occasion attempted to stir the pot. I look forward to adventures in beekeeping with beth. (got that control tower done yet?
) I fire up the computer and wait to see what new drama is unfolding in kris' colony. I anxiously await information on Robo's latest invention or creation, and try to guess how many paragraphs Beemaster will write to explain; when brood rearing slows in the fall, remove the supers and harvest. The site has a personality, and people are learning and having fun.
But Robo is correct in pointing out that beekeeping is what brought us here. If elimination of statement type signatures and political positions in the general forums will get a more active and diversified membership, then I'm all for it.
