So- there's one month left for the preliminary voting on Mouse and Trowel.

I'd LOVE to snag the "best new" slot.

If you have a second- please drop a vote for me. It would mean ever so much to me.

If you don't know- my gardening blog is Sweet Vitriol {the garden chronicles}. I port the posts over here to LJ under a special filter- if you're not on the filter and want to be feel free to ask, and I'll probably add you.

You can vote here:

Please help!

I am trying to understand why my post was taken off the "Gardening" forum... please see:
I have posted a few new comments in response to a couple of individuals that I can only describe as "not pleasant" please give me some clarity on this matter.
I appreciate your time in this matter.
My regards,
(oh and I will vote for you when this issue is clarified) ...smiles!

Your post was removed after 4 days of non-response from you in regards to the request both on your post from myself as well as many members to institute a lj-cut, as well as general reminder post to the community in regard to the multiple image rule.

Included in the general reminder post was the following:
1. Pictures are thoroughly welcomed, but please put them behind a cut tag if you are posting more than one. It helps people's bandwidth and those with slower internet connections. If you need help figuring how to use an LJ-cut tag, please see this help page (

Had you asked any of the many individuals including myself who asked you to utilize a cut tag, anyone would have gladly told you how and where in your post to make it. However, you did not do so, and after four days of non-response to anyone on the matter, the maintainer and I had no choice but to remove the post.

As much as I understand that you felt the dead fish image was not displeasing to look at, not everyone has the same feelings or the same strength of stomach and such images can be very disturbing to others.

First of all, I must communicate to you that I am staggered and disappointed that you decided to ban my posts in my favorite forum, ...all I have ever done is provide creative content that the majority of people find interesting and a highlight of their day. It saddens me that one "individual" in here has a) caused me an extreme amount of stress, and b) apparently has your ear through the adoption of a series of "on-line personas" that communicate under the guise of a singular individual (you try proving that one!). I have felt totally alone in this onslought to stop this individual attacking me for a long time. I have asked repeatedly for both parties to be investigated, to find a simple construct..the truth. I hate conflict but I will totally stand up to this this type of conflict and policing every simply is wrong in my opinion, and has no place in a gardening forum.
I have an active garden blog (please check it out!), and I am an avid gardener, which is a lot more that I can say for the individual that has achieved their goal, despite how it looks. If you go back to previous posts you would see that this person was exposed by multiple people in this forum as having multiple characters that communicated with themselves to derive the exact decision that you have made. All I ask, is please,please,please review this material, and seriously look at who I am, and who the individual with the multiple personality disorder is. I am not asking you to reverse your decision, I just deem it important as future protocol to really assess the parties involved in such a dispute before a decision, and banning is made.
I am also saddened that even though you made a decision to stop me posting in here,(totally your perogative) I was not given an opportunity to at least say goodbye to my friends and everyone who have enjoyed my posts, and work. That just seems a little harsh, again my opinion.

Yours very sadly,
