Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] aroid-L vs FB [was:Zamioculcas - like Gonatopus ?]
this is a very nice comment on FB - I still regret the day (I guess it was an aroid-L member) when the amorphophalllus group in FB was opened; well, it has it advatages like easy posting pictures etc and the manyfold contacts to people all over the world; but you pint out nicely the disadvatages - let alone the advatages for Mr. Zuckerberg..
I was remarkable how quickly the aroid-L lost the active members who definitely all switched to FB...
I never joined FB and probably never will - interesting that more and more people dislike FB; we'll see what happens...
Anyhow, since you are a FB member, Peter, what about writing a post there to remember people that the aroid-L is still there; after it is posseble to post pictures here as well, it is more attractive again - maybe even all the nice people and experts in Amorphs etc. like Lord P., Alan G., Steve J, Christian T., Susan B., Tom C., Tony A., Scott H., Lester K., Marek A., Albert H., Steve M., and and and..... (sorry to all I do not mention in a hurry.....) think about it and come back or reregister....
Just my 2ct....
Happy growing, Bernhard.

Steve and all... I for one would be delighted to see Aroid-L with a new lease of life - the sheer quantity of "messages" I get when posting anything on FB has led me to being very selective, not to say the annoyance of trying to re-find a post that only moments earlier was on the screen but is now buried under a mass of images of peoples' food interspersed with persistent adverts for incontinence products.
Anyhow... in the vein of sharing... here is a nice dwarf Schismatoglottis we are in the process of describing for inclusion in the next Aroideana.
