I'd also like to see any case where a beginner question was answered with low oxygen being crammed down their neck. I just don't see it.
We certainly can but make sure you understand that you posed a direct question that was not related to LODO brewing.
There are posts like this: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=28551.0
Yeah, it's not extract brewing but it is an instance where personal experience is over ruled by complete dogma. Instances like this aren't about discussion. Sorry. It is about shutting peoples experiences down based on something read in a text book and not really even applicable to 5 or 10 gallon batches.
I'm going to respectfully disagree. I'm not a low oxygen fanatic and I'll be the first in line to say that some of the German brewing forum members were jerks when they first appeared.
But 1) Bryan came back, answered the questions I asked (no more secrets), and did it respectfully. Gripes about the original behavior is in the past
2) That thread has multiple people saying that, in their experience, cranking up a direct fire boil on the 5-10 gallon scale can cause wort darkening and flavor changes. Regardless of the literature.
I see one jackhole in that thread, and it's bayareabrewer. I understand the mods are very busy and don't envy their job, but I think you should look again at what's going on right now.
If this crosses the line, I don't care, I don't need this s*** right now and I have other things in life to do. This is also a "free time activity" for me.
