Some days most of the posts are about nuclear reactors, global warming, etc. 
which are fascinating topics but I'd rather come here for any sort of natural 
resource discussions- forestry mostly but some discussion of related issues 
like wildlife mgt. watershed mgt., recreation, etc. We foresters are suppossed 
to be responible for more than just trees. But the context of the non tree 
stuff should be related to land mgt. issues. Economic and political stuff may 
or may not be relevant.

But I think the moderator ought to have a loose grip and let a few off beat 
messages in once awhile. <G> Just keep out the obvious spam and stuff about 
nukes, etc.
