Despite having received 3 complaints about it,
LOL! I am now really wondering whether I want to continue to be a member of this forum or this society if this is the narrow-mindedness that exists within the membership. Thanks for bringing that idiocy to my attention Bill.

Re: CITES and cactus seeds: question Solved

That's a beauty! Cute little things, Turbinicarpus. At least at that age. BTW I came across this by chance this morning on Cites and succulents - I haven't read all the detail but there are some nice pics! http://www.minambiente.it/sites/default/files/archivio/allegati/cites/Succulent_Plants.pdf Se...

Re: To Chop, or Not

"Previews should reflect what everyone sees,"

Agreed. What SHOULD happen. But does this happen? What I am still not sure about is whether folk whose pics turn up sideways see it right or wrong on a preview.

Re: iPad pictures

I have a question to ask. If folk post a pic do they actually preview their post?

If so - does this preview always reflect the way others see the pic?

Re: To Chop, or Not

It looks good to me, so I'd agree with Tony and esp.

Re: CITES and cactus seeds: question Solved

@ ragamala: change of avatar? Yes, sometimes a change is as good as a rest. I had thought of changing to my newest flowering youngster today (T. polaskii at 2 years) but decided if I was to ban myself or be banned I would raise my flag up the mast. Now I am probably off-topic, unlike your lovely M....

I take no pleasure in suspending a long time and valued member of the forum, but so be it. Bill Forum Administrator And in so doing you leave this post for all to se...
