    ok guys, ive had some problems and some people wondering why my name is altrade212, well my screen name on ebay is altrade and i figured that it would be easy to name this one the same, now some peole have been saying, they dont trust me in the forums, and i dont see how i have offened anyone, and for the person who says i dont post anywhere else only in the trade forums *no names* look in the drosea, utric and dionea help forums, i post there too and once in the pings, its not very nice to accuse me of things just beacuse of a screen name, the only reason i ask for plants or seeds is beacuse im a newbie and i want to have a nice collection, so for the *no name* person, dont judge a book by its cover and for whoever else has had any thoughts about who i am and what not, and yes my best friend is amatur_expert and NO he is not altrade, and as soon as i get big plants i will trade and give seeds, im not just here to take, i want to be as genorous as everyone else, well i guess thats it.. thanks for listening you guys..

    Ironic, you mention over reacting!

    Altrade212, If you've done nothing wrong, theres nothing to worry about.

    If I am "that" person, I have to say that I don't think you did anything wrong, All Trade - not really. You just were unaware of the rules. There have been a number of problems in the past with people asking for freebies: its sort of natural to want these plants if you are into this at all. But when everyone gets to doing it regularly, it makes it hard to track real trade offers and put it on the mods to keep an eye on things. Now, I am by nature a generous person, and I enjoy offering my stuff for free. I generally offer so much material in a year, that you would have to triple whatever growspace you currently have from MY offers alone, not to mention those from many other forum members who also have a sharing ethic. Rather than trying to get everything at once, without knowing what you are doing or where to put it, why not try learning some techniques, one of which is to demonstrate a little patience and ability before asking for everything?

    The following doesn't apply to you alone. The are other "newbies" here that have the same urgencies. I was there once myself. I used to HOPE a plant would grow, even if those with experience told me I had not a prayer. Very rarely would they be willing to part with something they knew they were sending to certain death, but occasionally they did grant me that favor so that I could learn for myself....and you know what? 99% of the time they were right. You can't just hope to grow many of these plants. BUT they did not often repeat the favor. With some things, you get one chance.

    The purpose of this Forum is not to get free plants. It is to discuss and learn, and thereby earn your chance to successfully grow what you want to grow, and to make the most of that "one chance".

    I hope this doesn't hurt your feelings, and there's nothing wrong in not knowing how things work. This is a good place to learn many things: how to sucessfully grow the plants, and how to also be a functioning member of a very fine community that demonstrates some of the very best qualities of man: sharing, sympathy, frienship and support. We welcome younger members here, but also expect a demonstration of maturity from them. I have been seeing too much bickering and demanding here, and it needs to stop. You can bet the Mods are watching all this, and if I guess it right, patience will be wearing a bit thin. A word to the wise.

    The reason I insist that the trade forum be free of requests for freebies is just this: if you take seed and grow it well, you will have much to trade with others. I go through considerable trouble to insure that you have this chance through my free offers and my teaching here. "Having" or "Giving" is a requisite for posting on the trade forum. Consider this the challenge. If you waste the chances that are given because you can always get more, where is the impetus to learn to do more than hope these plants will grow?

    If there is a single time honored true and tested fact of CP growing, that is it. Earn the respect of other growers, and the gates of the kingdom will be flung wide. Otherwise, wait and hope.
