Anyone else noticed a huge number of SASE requests?
In the past two weeks, I've been getting 2-5 SASE requests. Things like 'hi, I'd like X, Y, Z of your relatively rare seeds, and I can send an SASE of five dozen marigold seeds'. Most of these people have just registered in the couple of weeks and haven't posted on any of the forums, so I'm wondering if they're just out to rip people off.
I do send out my share of SASEs, add extras to small trades for people that have shorter lists, and send out seeds if someone doesn't have anything I want but is willing to trade, anyway, but I'm really puzzled by the 'I'll take this, what's your address?' mentality. The 'I'm a new gardener' comments really get my goat, because I'm a new gardener myself and there are plenty of ways to benefit from the generosity of members here without demanding it.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
