    Au contraire! I wish that were true - but think about it - if Liz hadn't out'd him, then no one would have even realized he was here. Or, if he even bothered to change his name ...

    It's very easy to assume that our community is homogeneous and that everyone has the same ideals/ethics/etc - the reality is a bit more harsh.

    I was reminded of that on a bird-watching forum several years ago. A newbie posted the location of a hawk nest and got swarmed by long-term members. Apparently bird poachers join the lists specifically to get info like that...

    We have members (pyro, tony...et. al.,) who have had their plants stolen,
    Sometimes the thief was selective and getting only the best plants.

    You gotta figure it was another member, or at the very least someone who visits TF
    Sad, but that is why I havent included myself in the TF google map thingy

    Anyone who would steal from another member would surely have no issue with poaching.

    if only 0.01% of our membership is capable of such acts, and we have over a thousand members... well that is at least 10 people

    Good points. Whenever I posted photos from fieldwork and wild populations I always had this little voice in my head saying, "Don't reveal the location past a county level." I knew there was a reason for that.

    Yeah he got to me on CPUK. I sent it to their admin since I didn't know who else to contact but I haven't heard back, so I'm sorta worried if I should try hunting down someone else since there's no report button.

    It appears his post has either been deleted, or edited cause I could not find the post on CPUK. So I think the admin got to it.

    Also mobile is an admin on there, he has also probably seen this post.
