Dear Gardening Friends,

I just replied to a post on the Seed Exchange Discussion entitled "What seeds do you want from Santa" and now I can't find it. Please help me understand what may have happened to it or why I can't find it.

RE: Missing Post

Probably something to do with the thread starter. Sue should be along shortly to answer your question.

LMAO...yes...the emails have been aflying this afternoon.

I hesitate to say too much, but a few members had suspicions that the brand new member who started that thread was a member who has returned several times over the years, with different names, only to make disappointing trades again. A thread very similar to the one that disappeared was started last year (maybe 2006) and it too was for everyone to post their wishes. At that time, it was discovered that the member who started the thread was a 'reincarnated' member with a new name. The member was then trying to 'pressure' some members into trading.
I 'outed' the member in the thread today, and she emailed me and that confirmed she had yet again returned under a new name.

Enough said.

Per the GW Terms of service, GW has the rights to terminate membership if one has created multiple membership accounts.

Just remember that the good/great trades certainly outweigh the few bad ones. There are numerous members who try and watch out for 'returning' members who for whatever reason don't continue to post under their original member name, but instead, keep returning with new names. There are 'numerous' veterans who are watching out for the good of us all.

If a trade does not feel 'right' just kindly decline. If you have any questions or concerns, either post them here, or email me, or another veteran member. We will be glad to help if we can.

RE: Missing Post

I was thinking of answering that thread. It did seem like the information was very vague. Thanks Sue, for looking out for us.
