    *sigh* fighting over the internet is retarded. you know that phission. hes driving a lot of people crazy. me included. fortunately i have a VERY high tolerance level. at the rate this s going....its not gonna last. i respect you phission(isnt your name Ron??) to a very high extreme. i listen to your wisdom as i do with everyone with higher experience than me. however. there are other people out there that dont use proper grammer/punctuation....like me. but im also understandable. hey...at least pon used his/her own experiences.

    poolboy: try you very best to not reference other CP nurseries. Andrew has his own shop and competition is something he doesnt need.

    so lets all calm down.... be...erm...acquaintances and if we cant stand each other...then just ignore each other.

    Phissionkorps is correct. Grammar and spelling are critical skills and it's important to use them constantly. It's also a good idea to avoid any exposure poor grammar and spelling. They're contagious. Let's face it, you'll never rise to be president if you can't form a proper sentence. Ummm . . . never mind.

    That's hardly an excuse. These days proper grammar and spelling is key because children growing up in a society of text messaging and "AIM-speak" have terrible personal communication skills. There are college students that turn in reports and legitimate papers with crap like "ty 4 the opportunity 2 b n this class." The difference here is that is moderately readable whereas pon's post are barely readable.

    And if you say to me, "o i can rite normal i just choose not 2" that is even more ignorant because then do it!

    And, apparently you "run" your own nursery, so I would hope that you have the ability to coherently talk about plants and spell their names correctly. I would think that your occupation would require even the remote ability to actually "run a nursery."

    Just because you don't want to be president doesn't mean you will never have a job interview or to write a resume or need to convey information to others (especially since this is a forum of resources!). As I've mentioned at least once before, people use this site as a resource, so information conveyed here should have at least a slight amount of care and consideration. Seriously, how hard is it to reread sentence long posts or actually think about what you are writing? The fact that an excuse like "I don't want to be president" is ludicrous and makes me sick. Isn't there a personal level of respect for yourself and your ideas?

    Don't make up excuses like "I don't want to be president." Just be honest and either say "I make the conscious choice to annoy people and continue to write terrible posts that many people have corrected," or "I am really terrible at communicating; I'm sorry, but I am working on it," or "I just don't give a damn."

    Again I feel I must say that mistakes are understandable. It happens to everyone. But the level of negligence in conveying information is not only unsatisfactory but also inexcusable. How many times do we have to go over this?

    Give him a break. He said he doesn't want to be president in response to my lame attempt at humor. If the internet had been around 30+ years ago when I was a similar age, I might have played the same role. The fact that he/she is here is something the rest of us should commend, even if the posts aren't up to the standards of someone who's 20 or 50. Now, let's get back to the actual topic, which had something to do with the genus Nuppenthis.
