Resources Yes, Commercials No

Dear All,

Since there have been a couple of private questions and now the message 
from Dave Fenwick perhaps I need to clarify. Some of our newer members may 
be puzzled. Our pbs list and pbs wiki are hosted by, a group 
based at the University of North Carolina. They make space available to non 
commercial group and are very supportive of information sharing. We don't 
pay for this service as we are not a commercial group. If members of our 
group start advertising what they are selling to this group we could be in 
trouble and lose what we have.

This does not mean we cannot share resources and tell each other about 
sources of seed and bulbs that we like. We have had topics of the week on 
favorites in the past. This is information sharing and quite acceptable. 
Feel free to do this all you want. I think it is great to support some of 
our list members in this way. But if someone mentions they are looking for 
something and you are selling it, please contact that person privately and 
tell them instead of communicating on this list.

I hope this explains my comments earlier. From my stand point and I suppose 
that I have a bigger stake than most because of the time I have put into 
it, losing the list and the wiki would be a very unhappy event.
