    What is in a name ?

    Does anybody know how forum garden got it's name ?...
    We seem to chat more about horses then the garden ...

    If you own a site what would you call it and why ? ...


    If I owned a forum .. I would name it ...

    Be yourself

    The reason I would call it that ... I always disliked phony people and snob ...
    I laugh at people who put on the airs and own nothing ..

    Owning nothing is an ideal state.

    ForumGarden was so named because the first owner, Tombstone, had an image of tending an online garden, pruning and cleaning and letting its members blossom. He had artistic tendencies and his roots seem to bear a San Francisco influence.

    Thank you .... F G for the response ... it makes sense to me now why it was called

    Why did you say ..... Owning nothing is an ideal state.

    Is that just for you or in general ...

    It's a philosophical proposition which I would happily generalize.

    Why would a person prefer to own something rather than hold it in common with everyone? Isn't it axiomatic that we would all, on average, have access to greater resources in a world where ownership was unknown? And that those disadvantaged by changing to such a system would be overwhelmingly outnumbered by those who would benefit?

    What puzzles me is the patriotic brainwashed upstanding have-nots who support the present system to their own disadvantage, it's like watching a religious cult.

    A person would prefer to own something rather than hold in in common cuz it gives them control....just like you like to have control over FG and rant your bull**** and FG powers to make others feel small. Johnny Spot....nothing has changed.

    It's a philosophy that is rather paradoxical, for a man who has nothing has everything, which means he has something.

    Well, I reckon Forum Garden should really be renamed to Weird **** Garden. As Lady J stated, there's some bull**** being spread around. I don't mind it, it's good for the garden.

    Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.

    The ideas were discussed at length during the English Civil War, the Common Wealth of Man is scarcely a novel concept. Everyone, Cavalier, Parliamentarian, Leveler or even me, would agree entirely with your comment. The debatable issue is whether the control of which you speak is desirable to the community at large.

    Owning stuff is useful. I mean, how can you be a carpenter if you do not own a hammer? But when you are so attached to that hammer that you let it define you as a carpenter, and you can be nothing else, then the hammer owns you.

    You could always rent it.
