    Did you read the thread, Plantakiss?(The first link which I posted) He quite likes being a foaming idiot himself! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] Hes also fond of using LOTS OF CAPITAL LETTERS!!!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] Sorry, not intended to upset you in any way.

    Makes me so angry. These palnts are slow growing, if removed, it iwll take 10 years for 10 new palntst o appear, and another 10 for them to start flourishing.
    And it will take more them 100 years for them ALL to be replaced if there is only a single plant left!

    Kentucky may not have laws protecting this plant, but that doesn't mean that this guy hasn't done something illegal. I think everybody overlooked one important clue. His ebay name, kyatvrider. If you break that down his name means "Kentucky all terrain vehicle rider". I'm sure he rides on trails through the woods of others property, maybe even state owned. I have a gut feeling that these are plants that he found on a trail way back in the woods. If they are from somebody else's property then he is guilty of theft, and with the price of these plants it's grand theft. He could be guilty of numerous felonies.
    I don't know much about orchids but if these are cites protected, it's illegal for him to sell them over state and international borders, which he is guilty of.

    The guy who obuhgt soem posted this on ebay:

    Unable to know quality of plants until they start growing (or not) next year


    Then he got an email which read:

    WHY WOULD YOU ORDER BULBS WE SENT THE BEST AND YOU LEAVE A NEUTRAL DISQUISES AS A BAD NEGATIVE REMARK WE DO NOT TAKE THAT LIGHTLY AS IT REFLECTS ON OUR BUSINESS WE HAVE SOLD OVER 5000 LADY SLIPPERS THIS YEAR ALONE NO COMPLAINTS......

    Then the guy sends him a reply:

    The feedback is "neutral" and not negative. If I had wanted to leave negative feedback then I would have done that. Cypripedium acaule is notoriously difficult to establish in cultivation. All cypripedium are very susceptible to root damage when transplanted from wild growing via bare root. They transplant much better when grown from potted. The feedback was a fair statement that the plants looked fine, but in truth there is no way for me to know if they have suffered root damage until well into next year. The other customers you have shipped over 5000 cypriprediums to this year are all equally unable to say whether or not the plants will establish ok, and it would be quite impossible for them to complain about something which they would not yet know. I am not complaining either. I hope that all will be well with them, and the warranty is encouraging, but my feedback is nonetheless 100% accurate and truthful. Cheers.


    Then he gets another reply:

    This is just plain crap to buy something and because you dont know what will go on leave a bad remark disquised as a neutral if you were skeptical then DONT BID


    Then the seller places this NEGATIVE remark on his ebay profile:

    DONT BUY BULBS THEN LEAVE BAD REMARKS GOT WHAT YOU PAID FOR

    Then the guy gets a ransom:

    Listen send them back if you are not happy and ill refund
    as per policy. ill retract the feedback and even pay for it if you will be willing and go through square trade then we will just not leave anything buyers dont think that a neutral hurts as much as a negative and as for facts there is nothing factual
    on your statement at all







    5000 wild collected ladies slippers..............what a waste. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    I am guessing only around 750 have survived.

    Number one someone will only buy thes if they have money shooting out their rear. The bid is a grand for 300 plants. What a ridiculous person. He also gives ATV riders a bad name, which of one I am.

    Dino, I hate to tell you this, but there are different kinds of poachers, and this guys seems to be the worse kind. His motivation is money. He has no concern for the plants at all, he won't be happy until he has made every dime he can from these plants. There is nothing that you can do that'll change his mind. So all your letters will do nothing but make him laugh. The only way to stop him is to somehow outsmart him.
    Remember this guy is not convicted of any crime nor is it known for sure if he has broken any laws.
