    JohnnyD has had a history of posting less then complimentary posts, which we've mostly properly ignored. Interestingly he started a new thread condoning the theft of plants. Not sure why such a person would come on a plant forum, where folks are passionate about plants, to promote the molestation of personal property. If it was his agenda to seek attention, he may have gotten what he wanted.

    Apparently his posting privileges have been suspended. Don't know what his thinking was, the Moderator is a plant lover too who would abhor such activity in their own personal garden. Wish Mr. D the best, hope he finds a forum where like minded people congregate.

    As to the Moderator's action, in my opinion it was appropriately handled.

    I deleted the post, Dean may have stepped in too. I don't understand why folks need to be so brazen & stupid. Their fun is stirring the pot, a mentality not welcome here. Just email me if you see this person back. We know they will reregister under a new name and start it all over again.

    ONCE UPON A TIME... I WAS BARTENDING...... AROUND THE LOCAL ELECTION TIME... key west... a small town... far to the left a little too LOUD voiced an opinion mentioning a couple a names....then from the other side of the bar playing a video game quietly .............. I heard..... "EVERY VILLAGE HAS IT'S IDIOT" things seemed to settle down.... always enjoyed the sequence of events.....

    time after time it was proven to me HAPPY HOUR was such a misnomer.........

    I agreed with Bren's deletion of the topic in question. And after some further consideration, I banned the person responsible.

    I am curious if anyone has actually met this "johnnyd" face to face? I was suspicious for awhile that he was a "wolf in sheep's clothing" - that is, someone who had already been banned and hiding under another name.

    Sometimes you just need to pull the weeds, and for the tough ones that come back we have 2,4-D
