I have a proposal at Area 51: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/85/gardening-and-farming-organically
This is about fundamentally about gardening organically. There is some speculation that this could be merged with the proposal for gardening as gardening is simply the broader version. I have a big problem with this. Gardening involves many activities to which organic gardening is diametrically opposed - spraying herbicides and pesticides for example. To be clear about this my proposal is linked to a preexisting Stack Exchange site, http://organicgreenfingers.com. This is an "organic gardening" web site not a "gardening without attention to organic principles" web site.
I have no issue if the "gardening" proposal wins and the "organic gardening" one doesn't but the idea that they could be merged is frankly offensive.
Take the following analogy - my proposal is for those interested in "nuclear disarmament". AHA - why not include all nuclear related issues including the best power stations, how best to kill with nuclear weapons or give people radiations burns. This is just the broader topic after all. Obviously there are at least two issues here - the latter proposal contains issues that are offensive to the former and a community can't be built around this topic.
