    Interesting to see this post. I've experienced the same thing. I didn't realize it was so rampant out there. I wonder if there's a common thread that ties everyone together?

    I've never gotten requests like that. I've only had 1 or 2 people ever contact me out of the blue about trading something on my growlist, but they always offered a trade and were nice.

    So how do you want it then Crissytal or Crystal ?? I'm so confused

    Dangit Larry !

    This is a good topic Pyro. Just reminding folks sometimes is all they need. Sometimes a swift kick or 2x4 upside the head it what it takes. Your also right about the wording when "asking for something". Lately I've been telling them to hang around for the auction and see what pops up.

    Now if you have an extra hippo I'll take it off your hands but no way am I paying to ship that lard ! LOL

    droseraguy,

    Either one, just spell it right . I've had both misspelled on more than one occasion.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    I agree with you completely Pyro, I could not have said it better.
    I know that if i am contacted by a member who has "Gimmie-Gimmie syndrome" I delete the message and wont even take the time to look at any future messages.

    Terra forums is a place to learn about the people and the plants they grow, exchange plants and related material, but it is to be done in a polite and curtious manner.

    That's why I took down my growlist.

    And people could at least do a little research on the stuff they ask for first. Shipping Byblis or Drosophyllum isn't likely to go very far.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    From everything that I have read, I can say that you are a great addition to the CP community. Your generosity alone shows what type of character you have. People are taking advantage of this, and there is a line that has obviously been crossed. I have not yet become involved enough to experience what you have, but I am posting to show my support of your statements and that you brought this out in the open for others to be able to understand.

    Thanks
