A thread on the SF board regarding where to buy grass vs grain fed beef evolved, in part, into a discussion of the difference between grain fed beef and grain finished beef.
The mods correctly removed those posts since they were clearly not appropriate for the SF board.
It would have been nice, though, if instead of simply removing them from the site without comment, they moved those posts to the Not About Food board or General Topics board. Or, even more simply, added a note to the SF thread that said these topics should be discussed in another post. A note would have helped me realize what happened, rather than having to search the thread, then try a different thread, etc. It would have taken 30 seconds of the mods time and have saved me about 5 minutes. That's a 10-fold rate of return!
For hounds that are interested in this topic, I've restarted the discussion here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...
