Re: A necessary evil?
There's a range there of expertise who left boards because they didn't want the back and forth to what they post. Facebook is their plants,and maybe they will give you an answer.
I noticed that Xeric world had some big names when it started..but when the average or new hobbyists posted,I think the experts thought going on their own was best.
What did they have to learn? And only being corrected for a wrong I.D. or the like isn't good for their reputation.
That leaves other experts- like Geoff Stein who welcome teaching the new newbys and the 90% rest of gardeners to mingle on plant boards.
Still a need for them. It might be a cycle.
