I still don’t understand what mission and message you are talking about tho? The club mission? Dbtc mission? What message?
Lol. This is funny.
I think am not doing this right. Maybe its the language.
I'll delete that and unwatch the thread.
Sorry man

I honestly did not understand what happened between the OP and dochou. I honestly want both of them to be happy members of BAR and enjoy everything it has to offer. That’s why I asked for additional information about the issue.

I’ll try to figure out how to move the large part of this discussion not directly related to the chain into a different post later. I don’t know how right now

Doc,the only thing I want to point out is, DBTC is not about generosity, thats what PIF is for. DBTC is indeed about survival of the chain.

I think this is the fundamental issue DBTC often face. The mission is survival not to try and learn or being generous. Once this mission is understood, alot of things get looked at with diffrent lence.
Nope, I disagree. When participating in DBTC you're giving something away (with rules attached). If you weren't generous, you'd keep the coral for yourself or sell it. Yes, it is a banking system too but most people don't ever ask for thier corals back and if they do, hopefully the chain has grown alot and multiple people can give you a frag back. So when the you start the chain your goals should be to bank the coral and spread the wealth, which is a sign of generosity.

Yep, me too. I'm still trying to understand @jhuynh. He didn't reply to my post.
I don't abuse the system and I abide by rules stated by the DBTC starters.
I don't get inline for corals I don't think I can raise. I don't experiment with DBTC corals.
I was just trying to understand @jhuynh and got attacked.

This thread is being unlocked at the request of the originator.

Please let’s all keep in mind:

1. The person with the frag to give out in DBTC has 100% control over who they do or don’t give it to. You may not agree with their criteria but that’s the way it is. This is especially true for higher end/more difficult corals like this one.
2. Please remember that this is a social club for our hobby. I don’t think I’m out on a limb too far to say that we all want to enjoy our time here. Plus it is easy to misinterpret posts/PMs since you don’t get the nonverbal queues. So please think twice before posting negativity, and please when possible give people the benefit of the doubt.
3. The point of DBTC is not for the originator to give out all the frags and that’s it. The point is that they seed the chain through their generosity and then recipients grow them out and give back more frags into the chain. Imagine how incredible it will be when lots of different members are sharing their Walt Disney frags in the club!
