I posted this as a reply in another thread, but think it warrants a thread of its own.
I just heard back from Dean Cook (Cook's Carnivorous Plants) stating what Ozzy had said previously: he took up his old job (in part) because of lack of income. I had noticed that his selection was a bit smaller, so i feared he may have gotten out of CP sales. If so, it would be a serious loss for the CP community, as i acquired many of my plants from Cook's when i was first building up my collection, and still make one large order a year (to restock my poor "annual" VFTs, in part [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]), and always get great prices and good plants.
Apparently some ingrate(s) had abused his generosity, back-stabbed, and left a sour taste... i'm sure selling CPs has razor-thin margins these days. Let's not make life harder for those who do, people. Especially you young people- be careful what you say. I have noticed a significant number of indiscretions on the part of the younger members here. Age is an excuse for ignorance, but not for rudeness.
Edit: I just heard rumor that Tony essentially left. I guess i'm a bit late with these comments, but hopefully the lesson was learned.
