Re: seed saving illegal

Eddie, it was certainly a clever play on words.  I generally like your turn of phrase. 

I also think you were quite right to say it is 'sad' (in the sense of unhappy-making) that many people believe horrible things that are circulated on the net, and get so afraid or upset.  I know in democratic countries we are supposed to have freedom of speech and all that, but I think there are good arguments for censorship of the net, in the way that the book publishing industry has censorship to the extent of peer reviewers and publishers being able to refuse works submitted for publication.

I have no idea how that might work though ...  hmm

Ms C I don't think it's rude or condesending to suggest further research either, I was merely try to point out that these things can be pointed out politely. I had no issue with the OT convo you were having. 

For the record I don't hold this sort of thing against anyone, Lord knows Ive been guilty of it myself, and often in humour, it's a fine line I guess and I was merely putting myself in the others shoes.

Eddie, Im sure you weren't going out of your way to upset anyone, you haven't got a mean bone in your body.

Well, I hope no one thinks I was impolite; I was certainly trying to get away from belligerence.  If Roxyrockford comes back, he/she can tell us I guess - didn't strike me as the shrinking violet type.  But I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

That you try to put yourself in other people's shoes, and are always so generous, is what makes you 'sweet', as Eddie says.

Re: seed saving illegal

I'm sure it's a very nice navel.  But don't stay away too long.  You'll get a crick neck.

lol

This scene repeats itself in my heads very often:  The woman who lives next to my mother in her caravan where she winters over in Arizona comes racing in the door saying how scared she is because her internet source has told her that Obama is sneaking Muslims terrorists into the country.  I roll my eyes, my mom tries to be polite to the otherwise nice lady.  But I can't help but think of all the other people watching FOX news and believing everything they hear.  Crazy, stupid, idiotic stuff that they won't question because their heroes, their "patriots" have told them it's so.  You can't imagine what it's like living in this country.
