I acknowledge I was one of the more verbal
offenders in the contributions to this thread, more proper to the intent behind
Iris-talk than Iris-photos. This is not the first time I have found myself
in this situation.
Once we got rolling with the subject I was in a
quandary of what to do. Your suggestion of cross-posting (which I'm doing
here ) offers an out. But to keep Iris-photos on track as "iris photos"
these kinds of discussions need to be shifted entirely over to Iris-talk, not
just cross posted.
In the future, should such a thread begin to
develop, I think all of us involved need to recognize the different identity of
the two sites and move to the one designed for such discussions.
I learn a great deal from people like Dave
Ferguson, Robert Pries and various others who post and I value the ongoing
discussion greatly. I think it important that others have the same
opportunity, which as you point out, is more likely on Iris-talk due to the
membership roster of the two sites being rather different.
Since most of these threads that develop in the way
this one did contain both photographic as well as textual information, it seems
logical to me that we continue on the Iris-talk side and cross-reference to
Iris-photos only when a post including a photo of interest is included,
rather than the manner in which we continued this time.
