No mister cereoid, you did that by yourself. Just by being unnecessary rude.
Not only against me (J have no problem with that, it tels more about you
about me) but also against the original poster and later against miss B.
J only started with some comments because you discouraged postings
(in your opinion silly) questions about the identification of plants.
And in my opinion this group is for questions like that and not for flames.

J do not believe you are terrible. But J also do not believe miss B. is
However, even if your comments on miss B. are right (what J do not believe)
don't have to tell it in this manner.

You have a selective memmory. The question of the length of a plant on its
is indeed not very informative. But together with the other questions it
could be of help.

>From your (very usefull and wanted!) contribution to this group, it is clear
to me that
you have a detailled knowledge about plants. This must mean that you are not
very young.
This is also true for me (J am 39 year old). J would like to suggest that we
behave like that.
It is easy to continue a flame-war. But that is not the purpose of this
Lets go back to the plants!!! You are good in that.

If you are still not happy with me, (but J REALLY do not dislike you) please
use my personal Email for that, and not this group.

J hope we can have soon fruitfull discussions about the nomenclature of

Sincerely Yours,
