    If this is referring to my post (and itprobably is), I am sorry if it was really an 11 year old kid, and it was a mistake to mention this other site here. I still have my suspicions about that poster, but I suppose posting them, especially on another site, was a mistake. Sorry.

    HEY! I am 12 and I get yelled at alot and no one takes me seriuosly. I say to some of my mom and dads friends " Do you want to see some of my carnivorous plants?" and all they say is "Maybe later". No one takes us younger people that seriuosly. It's not fun. And I am not 4 feet tall. Lol

    I had that problem when I was younger. I was a smart kid that would hang out with nice adults. Thing is when I'd meet a "normal" adult they'd automatically give me baby talk or brush me off. I learned that if you treat them with respect and show your intelligence and knowledge they'll eventually figure out how to deal with you properly. If not, feel sorry for them.

    Also, I have met plenty of people of all ages that don't want to see my plants, carniverous or not. They don't care about my age or my plants, it's just not interesting to them.

    And I am 5' tall, and look young so people still treat me like a kid sometimes! Everytime I get a childrens menu I order a beer! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Okay first off, i dont think this is only cpers, i think this is everyone in gereral that is being unfriendly. People are critisizing children because of their age. I know we are supposed to respect our elders, but arnt our elders supposed to respect us also? I think the reason people are getting mad is because we have been hit so hard with what is so correct and its pounded into us, one slight mishap and things can go haywire. Just because the person is typing badly dosent mean he is immature, not taught. It may mea they just dont read over everything they type.

    P.S. i wasnt 4 feet tall when i was 11, but i know waht you mean, in general [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].
    P.s. I dont mean any offence with this, just giving my opinion, dont get mad [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    Oh boy.

    my comments were not aimed at anyone in specific.

    My comments were more for venting purposes and to be a call to arms [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I think that more needs to be done, and we are the ones that can do it!!!

    I wish that I could contribute seed and plants to this community as others have, but the plain and simple truth is, for all my involvement in this hobby, my collection is small, and limited, and hasn't gotten to the point where I can do much in the way of giving...

    but I DO give my time to this site as a moderator... and I am sure everyone will agree I am not exactly the cuddliest one on the block... but there is a place for cuddly moderators, and there is a place for those that have found it easy to get the point across in as well.. blunt, and honest a fashion as possible.

    I know some people I have spanked probably took personal offense about it, please don't, I don't know you, or know much about you, I know this place, and I try to protect it.

    I have had a pretty nasty day job for the last 6 months, and it has really impeded my time here... well, that has all changed, and I have more free time now, so hopefully I can contribute more than my mallet now. I don't grow the biggest or most exotic questions, but i do have the personality where I like to answer the little questions, so bring it on.

    Also, remember it is places like this one where people are not scared to share information, where a bog here and there will be saved, where rare and exotic plants will enter more widespread cultivation... **********, while a business venture, is a conservation venture as well, you see, if Phil and Jeff can provide you with an inexpenisve plant that others are selling for 100 bucks, they have made it more easy to get ahold of... more people buy it, and then the trading starts, buying continues... and before you know it, everyone is growing clipetea, hamata, and so on... strain is taken off natural resources, and they have a chance to thrive without human interference... that's a good thing!

    I like what kevin said! We are not little 4 foot tall (I'm almost 5 foot fyi) And kevin (plantslikebugs) is totally right. The only way I get attention is by using a word like:
    superantidisestablisiantisim!!! pant, pant!
    I am back..
