    FlytrapGurl, if you do order from Lowse, also ask for a Nepenthes.

    Maybe I am wrong but that sounds a little like encouragment (to me)

    And I never said that you can't talk about other distributors, you don't see me saying anything in the Nep forum about the post talking about Tony and the Neps he sells. I am just pointing out how Phil and Jeff have asked that you/we refer people to a place that sells the exact same plants that PFT sells. PFT sells purps, good big healthy ones, so if you are going to make an order for a purp why not do it here?

    Some comments were made for PM. I think we should all think about what we're preparing to post and decide if it's appropriate for the entire discussion forum. There's an old saying, "look before you leap". What's that got to do with anything? I don't know... I just like old sayings.

    Yes, that is encouraging someone to buy a nep from lowes but I personally think that lowes can't even compete in the same market as PFT. PFT.com caters (I think) mostly to the CP enthusiast and their promotion of this discussion board is living proof.

    I personally think the previous discussion has not gone too far. By simply discussing the merits of a store like Lowes I don't believe we're betraying PFT. I think it is more important to have an open and free discussion board than to be slaved to talking only about PFT.

    I certainly understand prohibiting people posting advertising here and I agree with that rule but I'm fairly sure none of the people here are salesmen (or saleswomen) for Lowes. I would love to hear more about what ppl think of this conversation. There's my two cents. Or dollar. :biggrin:

    I personally see no harm in discussing Lowe's as a source for CP's. I think the vast majority of people that buy [CP's] from Lowe's are doing it with a spur of the moment/curiosity motive. I think anybody that actually grows/collects CP's knows where to get high quality plants, and that Lowe's is probably not one of those places. It may actually be beneficial for PFT and other CP specialist nurseries for Lowe's to sell their CP's. As I said, I think most CP purchases there are made by people who have never been exposed to CP's before. If they do buy one from Lowe's, and actually have success growing it, they will probably want to research them more and expand their collection. These people (hopefully) will ultimately encounter this website and realize that this is an excellent source of additional, higher-quality CP's than Lowe's can provide.

    Just my opinion....

    Hey Guys...

    No biggie on the lowes conversation [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ... just thought I'd let you know.

    I appreciate you guys (the ones that spoke up) being on top of things and aware enough to curb the talk of 'competition' ... but it's really not a big deal.

    As I discussed recently with some moderators... there are things that really dont' bother us... and discussing local places to buy, isn't really crossing any line, if anything I would imagine it's sharing a resource to acquire plants.

    Our policy is pretty much in place to keep commercial vendors from coming in here and plastering our boards with sales pitches, which has happened in the past in a limited amount.

    Just thought I'd let you know OUR opinion! =P

    Okay, Phil has spoken and I'm not trying to contradict him, I just want to say that I think what I was saying has been missed. I never said the post had gone to far and I never said that we couldn't talk about Lowe's.

    What was bugging me was: Why call Lowe's and have them order a plant, especially when you know PFT carries it and it will be of a much higher quality?

    So, since I have said what I had to say and since Phil has said that this is cool by him I will apologize to anyone I might have offended. I am sorry. And now since no one wnats to hear anything else from me I'll shut up [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Some people just have to learn the hard way, I guess.
