[NOTE: The message below (note the original post date of 2008) was in response to a steady influx of folks stumbling across the forum and misunderstanding its purpose and culture. This hasn't been a problem for a long time. Consider this encouragement to seek out the history of the forum, but assuming you're familiar with why we're here, there are no edicts to read any particular thing before posting. If you have any questions, please ask - that's why we're all here. -Willem, Dec 2015]
Everyone who wants to not just read, but actually POST on rewild.info, needs to read and understand at least Jason Godesky's Thirty Theses above.
We've had an influx lately of perfectly intelligent people who have a fundamentally flawed sense of the purpose of this particular forum.
We have not gathered here to debate fundamental tenets of how the current community here collectively sees rewilding, as embodied in the Thirty Theses.
If you disagree with them, then I suggest you find a more appropriate forum for your ideas.
I tend to want to err on the side of open discussion, but for the sake of the forum I've decided to reign that tendency in.
EDIT: Of course, many of you may have posted here for months perfectly fine, and I've never had to step in a thread and moderate. In that case, lovely! No worries! You understand this forum on a visceral level. Read or don't read whatever the hell you want.
EDIT II: In further news, rather than delete them, I will move threads that poorly match the Rewilding theme to a special forum, the Humanure Bucket.
