    I guess it's all kind of humorous when you look at it, and after the annoyance subsides (until the next time).


    All things considered, I really do enjoy giving my extra VFTs away. I would much rather ship them to the homes of people who are already enthusiasts and are at least somewhat knowledgeable, than to take my beautiful little insect-munching buddies to the local farmer's market in the rural area in which I live and sell them to fascinated kids who are sure to tease them, torture them and kill them within a few weeks!


    Anyway, such is life I guess. Just had to vent a little. Honestly though, I can't believe how much some people are willing to ask for. Like CopcarFC said, "give 'em an inch and they want a freakin mile." Thanks Mike (cprus) and everyone for your comments. Also, thanks Est for that great idea: asking respondents to use a special title for their private messages to make sure that they have actually read the information and instructions.


    Best wishes, -Steve / xscd

    Hee hee, xscd, I was just busting chops.

    All you have to do is say "no soup for you" to people who don't follow the directions. Maybe they'll learn for next time.

    Thanks Justin! I'm sure most people who send their "babies" off to new homes love to see followup messages or even photos of them.

    I remember the VFTs I send, when they used to sit in the greenhouse in this particular environment and climate of eastern New Mexico, and how I watered them, fed them bugs (in this dairy country with billions of flies, I sometimes catch the ones inside the house in small glass jars that I keep in the freezer, which stuns them until I nestle them gently into one of the open maws of the VFTs), took them outside to hunt and sun, etc.

    Anyway, thanks for your nice comments. Glad they're doing well.

    Sounds like a proud papa to me.

    Hey Steve can your next offer be for some "wacky traps" and some "giant all red"...they're both on my "must have" list. If you don't already have them, could you buy them, grow them, divide them, pot them, and then give them away to me for just shipping. I'm sure that would'nt be a problem for you.

    Let me know when they're ready.

    Thanks

    Sure! Although I don't know you, it's the least I could do for a fellow human being.

    I don't have any Wacky Traps now, but I'll buy or find something of value of my own to trade for them. Giant All Red VFT I haven't heard of, but I'll do the research and make sure I have some of those soon too, and I'll buy or trade for plenty for both of us.

    If the only source is from Europe, don't worry, I'll take care of all the CITES or whatever official paperwork. Sound like a deal?! I'll try to have them ready and ship them to you as soon as possible--no charge of course. Anything else I can do for you? *mutter* A gunshot wound to the head perhaps? *mutter*
