I enjoy your posts and appreciate the apparent amount of thought you put into them.
I'm not offering this as an excuse, just some rationale. Yes, the MH forum frequently ventures into seemingly other non-MH topics, such as conspiracy realities as well as conspiracy theories. That MH is occasionally someone who authors his own off-topic threads, and is also someone who replies to someone else's off-topic threads, and is someone who often starts off a post on topic but then through the course of the post gravitates towards his intellectual and emotional witnessing of how he has in fact seen various and longstanding connections between medical establishment and conspiracy, this sort of implies a willingness and acceptance - by example of the forum owner MH himself, to seemingly stray off topic. If nothing else this helps to point out that life and the world does not occur or exist in a vacuum, and as MH and others frequently indicate in his forum that is geared towards medicinal uses of herbs, there often times is not much that separates medicine from conspiracy.
On the other hand, if a vacuum is what the majority prefers, perhaps it is time to come up with a method whereby the "Ask MH/Barefoot Herbalist" forum is restructured so that 1) it never, ever strays off the single topic of herbs and their alternative medicinal uses; 2) it never ever allows reply to inquiries by anyone other than MH.
