As I read the composting head threads, stirring the pot hastens drying the poop, eliminating odour.*

Yes...but I can't help but think that this thread will tend to polarized the forum and create some hard feelings who are not in the Sorority.

Re: CF members to seek advice from

I seek knowledge from everyone.
To restrict your input to a chosen few is limiting your knowledge.
Would anyone filter threads to not read all posts??
I use the thanks button, probably not enough, there is so much to be thankful for.

How could it not? To chose just one member over another is subjective, don't you think?
Subjective:- arising out of or identified by means of one's perception of one's own states and processes <a subjective symptom of disease> compare objective 1c :-lacking in reality or substance
