this is so true but it does make sense a little. I know it can put you off even wanting to ask a question just in case it makes you seem like a beginner lol.

But most of the times someone asking a question is less clued up. This is just how it is most of the time.. I know full well what you mean as you are one of our most recent active members but you have been growing longer than most on this forum so to start with we didn't know you and assumed you were one of the 100 new members that ha just started to develop an interest.

Since seeing some of your plants , especailly that monster phal you showeed recently we know you have a good green thumb but we couldn't possibly know that when you joined so I know it will have felt insulting but you can't fault the forum overall for assuming someone asking a question doesn't know the answer.

It is a valid point though.

True, but people trying to help often guess what the problem is (be seen as an expert) rather than ask the questions needed to determine what the problem is (be helpful). The result is multiple different guesses that a new person is ill-equipped to decide between.

Actually, I disagree. I think it is better not to assume and find out by asking the questions needed to understand the problem. People will tell you what they know if you ask questions such as "do you have any thoughts about what caused the problem?"


Real experts don't guess at answers, they ask the questions needed to determine the answers.


In case you're wondering, I don't have anyone in mind when I'm posting on this topic.

I bet Higgins would be a senior member, supporter and likely a mod. The question is whether or not one could count on his cultivation advice. In the end, all we really have is our own agency in determining what is worth listening to.

A practice which is often even more poisonous to harmony than actually acting on ill motives.

You're a great resource, Ray.
