I've somehow reached 200 posts here on VC forum! I don't know if that's good or bad for my sanity.
Depends how you view that.
I’ve had days where I’ve been on awhile. I’ve mainly come here myself to see from other perspectives.

Random thought: how and where do fruits/veggies get their color? Had the prettiest looking grape just awhile ago. Felt bad to eat it.
as fruits develop, starch is transformed into sugar (the chemical processes will undoubtedly bore you). this sweetness, along with color development, is the olfactory and visual signal for animals to consume the fruit since by this time, the seeds have been fully developed and are ready for dispersal.
some fruit can be cooked when young (cooking bananas or breadfruit) as a starchy vegetable, but in almost all cases the mature fruit has more nutrients and vitamins.

I’d be intrigued by the chemical process too.
But the simple explanation is easier to understand.

do you get a notification if one your post gets flagged?
VC has said that he would send notification for warnings/rule violations. I have no idea how much follow through he's been able to maintain with that though.
