A little help from the mods

A thread on the SF board regarding where to buy grass vs grain fed beef evolved, in part, into a discussion of the difference between grain fed beef and grain finished beef.

The mods correctly removed those posts since they were clearly not appropriate for the SF board.

It would have been nice, though, if instead of simply removing them from the site without comment, they moved those posts to the Not About Food board or General Topics board. Or, even more simply, added a note to the SF thread that said these topics should be discussed in another post. A note would have helped me realize what happened, rather than having to search the thread, then try a different thread, etc. It would have taken 30 seconds of the mods time and have saved me about 5 minutes. That's a 10-fold rate of return!

For hounds that are interested in this topic, I've restarted the discussion here:

      But if the post in question is not listed on My Chow, then I still don't know if (a) it has been deleted, or (b) I've made enough recent posts that the post in question has been replaced by newer posts on My Chow.

      Sure, I could search for *all* of my posts using the site search engine. But it would seem to be a lot easier for the mods to have left a message in this instance. The topic was perfectly legit for discussion, just on a different board.

      In any case, everything is fine now. The discussion has restarted.
