I for one do not agree.  I read your original question. I read Roger's response. 
I read your response.  I think YOU should have read HIS response before you went 
ballistic.  Perhaps an apology from you would be in order. 

Your question had little if nothing to do with this list other than you used the 
word "plant" once or twice. Your problem description lacked precision, to say 
the least.  "Everything dies"?  

Given the brief description of the problem, I would certainly agree with

  1) Chlorine/chloramine problems

  2) Poor husbandry 

as the root cause of your friend's problems. 

Since my dictionary describes a "prig" as "one who is precise to an extreme in 
attention to principle or duty", I think they are more than welcome on this 
list.  I would take that as a compliment.

Well, anyway, good luck getting any other questions answered.
