      This unfortunately, seems to have opened up a rift between the
      KNOWLEDGEABLE, and the HOBBIEST.
      Pete, this group has always been for the knowledgeable and the new_distillers group is geared to the hobbyist. There is nothing wrong in directing someone to another group if that group is better suited to their needs.
       
      I work on the theory
      "That there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers".
      I use the same philosophy but I add "there are lazy questions that shouldn't get answers."
      BTW I did a query for "Elitist group" and couldn't find one listed:)

      I have been involved with this group for only a short time, and have watched
      with interest as it has grown, from a few people asking simple questions,
      requiring simple answers, to where we now find ourselves with an "Elitist
      Group". Unfortunately, of late, it seems to be that the forum has been taken
      over with obsessively complicated queries, requiring obsessively complicated
      answers.This unfortunately, seems to have opened up a rift between the
      KNOWLEDGEABLE, and the HOBBIEST.Why cant we all work together, toward as
      many people (ordinary ones)enjoying our wee hobby, with the ability to ask
      questions of each other, without being berated and chastised by those who
      consider themselves beyond answering simple questions. I work on the theory
      "That there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers".I have further
      found that there are people out here that are incrediably clever in the
      classroom, but limited in practicle experience.
      Lets keep the pettiness out of this group.

      Hey there,
               I was not aware that one had to be a scientist to be a
      member to this group!!If that is the case you can have this group to
      yourselves and I dont want to be a member.

      I thought with my limited knowledge in the process of distilation
      this would the place to to increase this knowledge with questions
      about my problems.If you think it is lazy to ask questions to various
      problems instead of doing the research(which could take many hours)so
      be it!!! I think its working smarter rather than working harder.

      There is no doubt many people with the same interests in distilling
      that I have, with limited knowledge and would like to get SIMPLE
      facts about the various processes about distilling.

      If we have to move to another site to get this advice,I'm sure we
      will do that.(even if it is to please the scientists!!!)

                            Regards(but not kind ones)
