Don't you kind of answer your own question here? Organic Gardening is, by
definition, NOT using chemicals. (Using common vernacular here -- obviously
everything in the garden and such has a chemical nature.) If one uses
chemical fertilizers then that would pretty much immediately negate the
organic aspects. Granted, it might work wonders and all but finding a
natural means would be preferred of course.
Considering how easily algae takes hold of any body of water, I'd have to
wonder why anyone would feel the need to resort to chemicals to encourage
its growth. Hmmmm....
Depends on how you label "organic gardening." Personally, I define
it as the ability to rotate polarized light. If you want more algae
in the pond, allow more sunlight to it (cut overhanging branches or
remove a tree). I have lots of extra algae (and azola, and anacharis)
if you want to come get it.
According to a few websites, even adding 10-10-10 to a compost pile is
"organic gardening", since the fertilizer is not directly added to the
plants. I'm looking more for a technical definition rather than a
As for algae, sunlight really isnt the limiting factor here. Its
phosphorus. Dump phosphorus into any lake, and a huge algae bloom will take
place. Thats why its not allowed to be used in detergent anymore.
Yours is a stupid question to begin with and you probably already know that.
Even though everyone has said don't do it, you probably will do whatever the
heck you want no matter what anybody says so why do you even bother asking?
The technical definition for you is TROLL!!!!
Now go and sod off.
There obviously is no limiting factor to your stupidity!!!
Sir, you are quite insane. And this is a legitimate question. Do you
somehow think algae will become toxic if it suddenly recieves some of the
nutrients it needs to grow? I am only looking for a technical definition
from which to set my boundries.
David Bunch is most definitely a lunatic troll wasting everyone's time.
His question has been answered many times over but nothing sinks into that
thick skull of his.
He has gone way beyond beating the subject to death. The subject has been
beaten way beyond puree by now.
It doesn't matter what you say, whether you agree or disagree with his loony
notions, the idiot just wants to bitch and argue over nothing.
Screw the troll.
Let him piss in his own pool.
What he really needs is a girlfriend (or maybe in his case, a boyfriend?)
When it comes down to it, I doubt if even a dog would stick around for long
listening to that whining jerk baby with his dirty diaper all in a bunch.
I just searched through the newsgroup for some of your other replies
Cereoid. You never have anything positive to say, and your manner of
'speech' is way off. You are probably the first truely crazy person I have
conversed with on the internet.
You are the genuine crazy person Bunch panties.
You are not worthy of being taken seriously by anyone here.
Obviously sarcasm is way beyond your limited addle-brained comprehension.
You post an asinine psycho proposal in this newsgroup and you argue with
everyone who replies, regardless of whether they agree or disagree with you.
You are a real nut case.
I expose you for the true troll imbecile you are and now you call me the
You are long overdue for having your meds changed, loony toons.
And besides, this is a gardening newsgroup in the first place, if you want
instructions on how to pollute your environment you should look elsewhere
because the subject is off-topic here. Who knows? There just might be a
newsgroup for eco-terrorists kooks like you out there somewhere?
Either you don't converse with many people on the Internet, or you're
not a very good judge of crazy. Cereoid doesn't even make my top 100.
(Sorry, Cereoid. You'll need to try harder. <g>)
As for saying positive things, that's not something I care about. Useful
things is something I care more about. And if you cut through the
rhetoric, and the blunt, course method of delivery, Cereoid has
delivered some good information. Critical information without pulling
punches. But so what? This newsgroup is about gardens and garden related
things. It's not a substitute for group therapy, and it's not a place to
come if all you want is positive affirmation even when you're wrong.
You want nice? Go to some moderated web forum where they block anyone
who utters a discouraging word. But you'll loose out on all the people
who are blocked for not being nice, even if their content was useful.
And that's a shame. Ignore the message because you don't like the
messenger or the way the messenger delivers the message. When the value
of the content becomes secondary to how it's delivered, then the content
This is hardly worth it's own thread. If you disagree with Cereoid,
either attack the issue being discussed, or let it go. Starting a thread
for the sole purpose of calling someone crazy is, in my opinion, even
less nice than the way Cereoid participates in existing threads. At
least those threads started off someone on-topic. And in those cases
they turn bad only after others participate. You've started your own
"let's attack someone" thread. And you didn't even use a spell checker!
You may think you used nice words to do it, but plain and simple, it's a
personal attack that's not even part of a thread with content. That puts
you higher on my crazy person list than Cereoid is. You didn't even
deliver any content.
He *is* quite knowledgable in certain areas, and I've defended him in
the past, but the information is rarely worth the abuse and foul
language. And my positive comments resulted in even fouler messages. A
simple tap on the 'delete' key makes him vanish, which is what I do
now. He's no different from the crazies in other newsgroups. If you've
only 'met' one, you must not subscribe to many forums. :-)
