    You can interpret it however you want. I don't care but before you assume someone doesn't know what they're talking maybe keep your doubt to yourself. I would've put "I have nepenthes I don't know what they are." This is why I've stayed away from forums. There are always a few guys that just know they are the smartest people ever and no one else could possibly know the same or even more information. Il run it by you next time I trade something and you can tell me if I'm right. Cool? Awesome thanks professor. By the way I have these plants with sticky leaves I have no clue what they are, others have cups at the end of the leaf if any wants to trade. I dont know what they are. And don't msg me back to tell me you're great and I'm an idiot. Save it

    Wow. Well just so you are aware, the two people who replied really are some of the best growers on here and they took the time to try and help you. We deal with a lot of newbies who don't know what they are doing and from the looks of your profile you appear to be new to CPs. Not saying you are but with less than 20 posts and only a few months registered that's how you come across. Without pictures I too would have a bit of doubt as to the purity of your N. alatas. This is a forum with people from all walks of life coming together to share growing techniques and have fun. No one called you an idiot and if anyone here was out of line it was you. Please play nicely if you are going to be a part of the forums.

    First, no photos = low credibility. If I had a nickel for every time I've seen someone offer N. alata for sale or trade and what they did in fact have was good old Ventrata, you and I could have coffee somewhere nice together. You did not provide photo documentation, so how were we to know what you were really offering. And gosh - I am so glad you know what you're talking about. Perhaps its a shame that people interact on the web the way they do, but a relatively new member with only 14 posts to his name hasn't yet earned a reputation - either good or bad. People judge every situation based solely on what scant information they have. As I say - if only you'd provided photos as requested.

    But never mind that. As you yourself have suggested, you can "save it". The angry retort isn't warranted. Though I suppose we now have a better impression of your temperament, at least. :-)

    Nodody here knows you from a can of spray paint, and you're offended that people want to see pics of a practically unavailable plant you offered that when it is offered more often than not is something else entirely. If you're that thin skinned, the internet probably isn't the place for you.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Hey @plantsnfish and @charlie check out the
    Like this post
    feature to the bottom left of each reply and use those to express when you like it

    And I'll add since I am here, that I understand the questioning that has happened in this thread. There is quite a bit of miss identification on that plant and their offers to have a look at photos to help verify the identify for sure (both to you and/or themselves since it's possible they are interested in said plant) was not out of line. You could simply say you are sure it is and leave it at that (where they would probably not be interested in it then, since they would like to verify for themselves it is the plant they would like to have), or you could post a photo and be done with it. If you do have one, and show a picture you're sure to get a better trade out of it than yelling that it is N. alata but not backing that up with a photo upon request. Which again, people requesting a photo of a plant up for trade is quite normal, most people just know to put one in there since it is known people would like to see what they're making offers on.

    It's funny that if I actually told you how not thin skinned I am you'd report me to your cool guy leader and I'd get kicked off. I'd be more than happy to let you know though.

    You also have no clue of how much of a "nerd leader" or "cool guy leader" I am since you have no experience with me. Nor how I react to reports, but I guess I should throw a hissy fit over having assumptions made about me, huh?
