    Hi Alvin

    There are some pond people around. Where are you from?

    O and all of those going to jump on him for not introducing himself first. I have said before that the new member system is flawed so nobody has a right to be rude. So be nice.

    Just did a quick scan through the BL. Pistia Stratiotes Water Lettuce is NOT to be imported.

    Hi Alvin...

    Vis has beaten me to you... and I see you introduced yourself... so pop over to your introductory thread... I welcomed you.

    Vis, I agree, there is a flaw in the system... unfortunately we as the existing member also need to take into account that the rules do not FORCE you to intro yourself.

    My feeling is if you not going to have manners, maturity, and show a sign of respect to introduce yourself, I am not going to have mannaers, maturity or any respect for the new member. I think until the Admin and Mods of this forum (hint hint Rory & Zebra Plec) actually seriously think about this "flaw" or give us a solution, then this is going to continue being the case.

    Good healthy boundaries will always make someone happier. If you cat is kept in the confines of it's perimeter, i.e within the boundaries, it will be happy. Put it in a kennel somewhere, it is unhappy.

    If we set healthy boundaries and DIRECT the new members to the new member forum, we are not FORCING them, but setting limits. I still feel that a guest can VIEW ANYWHERE ON THE FORUM. A member, once activated, can only view new members section until they have posted a thread there, and the be released back to the rest of the forum. My feeling.
