We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

A site called "Ellen's Kitchen" says a bushel of pears is 48 lbs. A peck is 1/4 bushel, so 12 lbs. I Have no idea on count, and pears vary in size.
