Re: complaint to the listmaster

Linda, earlier this morning I posted the following message to the Happy Moose Gardening Forum ( http://happymoose.com ) in the category called "THE SOCIETIES" encouraging the open discussion of matters relating to all the different sub-societies, stand-alone societies, and the largest societies. I believe an open and candid discussion can be beneficial to all groups. Sure running a group or individual down is inappropriate, however, pointing out differences, uniqueness, and similarities in a non-controversial tone should be encouraged. My message follows and I invite everyone's participation through either simply reading the messages or contributing to them:

" .... brought the Tall Bearded Iris Society up in another post. This forum is focused toward the Big 3; being daylilies, hostas, and irises (as plants). This does not mean that it is limited to the largest society of each genera.

The iris world seems to be sectionalized unlike the daylily and hosta societies. For irises there are "co-operating societies" such as the Reblooming Iris Society, the Society For Japanese Irises, the Siberian Iris Society, etc, which seem to fall under the AIS umbrella. Then there is the TBIS that is a separate and distinct organization unaffiliated with AIS. From what I understand the TBIS puts out a first-class publication and that receiving the publication more than justifies joining an additional plant society.

For daylilies there is the fairly new Canadian Daylily Society even though the AHemSoc has recognized regions in Canada, and last year Canada hosted the Region 4 meeting of the AHemS. The CDS is an asset to the daylily community. Hemerocallis Europa is a very strong and growing society representing the European countries. The list goes on and on, and don't for the Australians.

Then there are several international hosta societies as well

I encourage members of these societies to post information relating to them in the topic threads that appear in this forum. I believe the discussion, comparisons, and different methods of each group can be beneficial to all."

Subject: [iris] complaint to the listmaster

I have sent an offlist note to John Jones, our listmaster, suggesting
that he put the AIS vs TBIS discussions in the category of political
discussions forbidden on this forum.  I also suggest that the internal
politics of either organization don't belong here either.

Do the members of this group want discussions about our favorite flower
here or the political issues?

John has set up a mailing list for AIS suggestions, so why not take this
discussion to that forum and let the rest of us get back to flowers?
