    it sucks to actually hear about people doing it....sad really. ive even seen people basically trade weeds from their yard for CPs. something is better than nothing, atleast you offer a choice.

    must be irritating...thanks for the insight Travis.

    Pyro,
    That is a bold email.

    I think all my request for trades I ever have made have been posts in the Trade forum and never PM / emailed anyone directly.
    There are some growers here that have emailed me after such a post and have been kind enough to say, whats you address and I'll mail it out to you. I have always responded with this type of generosity to respond back and tell them to look at my growlist and see if there is anything they are looking for off my list.

    I know that you, Pyro, have helped me out on a few plants I have looked for. I want to post here that I greatly appreciate it, Thank you.

    I have never demanded something be given to me, I have offered to trade and have had people be generous and give the plants to me.
    Thats how I got my first D. binata I offered to trade something for U. calycifida and ended up getting several species that I didn't have including calycifida.

    Don't even respond to people who are demanding, who do they think they are even if they were you favorite candidate they have no right to demand, now asking as long as they don't keep asking if you have said "no" should be okay.

    I have received one PM asking for a gimme, and then I promptly chewed them out telling them how rude they were and the like. I have sent several people large boxes of plants for shipping because I was in the mood, but it just burns me up when people ask for gimmes.

    One time years back a member told me they were gonna "turn me in to terraforums" if I didn't send them a plant! ha ha! I didn't bother to contact Andrew about it cos it was so rediculous.
    I'm a patient person that is why I've given you years to send me the plant I asked for, But my patience has run out!! I'm telling Andrew.

    And Pyro, this wasn't what I was expecting when I told you to send me the Hippo plant.

    I can totally see people doing that... Anytime something is offered for free or for postage, there are some lurkers that come out of the woodwork and snatch up the offers with lightning speed. I only wonder if half the people end up giving back for free. I'm always glad to see when people do return favors though.

    Kudos for your generosity Travis, and to the others like you.
