I agree, but one thing that is very important is to have groups similar to those on Facebook. I can see that there is strong need for bulb growers to communicate with each other worldwide. Yesterday I created a new group for South American Bulb growers. Within 12 hours 70 people have been added. I am overwhelmed and positively surprised. 

The problem with this list is that it's is that it's way to slow - you need a reply more or less. On Facebook you can follow a discussion among a certain species and become wiser. I've met so many new like-minded people . They're eager to share their experiences and help each other.

Facebook could never fulfil the needs of PBS members like an official website. That should not be the point at all, and we need to get off that track completely. It serves a different purpose that can contribute to member communication and outreach. That's what it can dod and do better than anything else out there.
