[Market-farming] Tillage is tillage

Frankly I do delete.  Argumentative posts are not helpful to the list. 
Informative posts are.  There's a difference.  Consider that.  I think if 
you want to incessantly argue a point it should be taken off list.  But 
that's just my two cents.  Certainly can't speak for anyone else.  I'm 
absolutely not looking for a fight...I just want the list to return to the 
helpful and collaborative sharing that it used to be instead of the heated 
posts I have recently observed.
