Dear Hosta Fans
 I have been providibg you for the last two years with more than a 
1000 messages They all contained my oservations and explanations on a 
wide range of Hosta related subjects. I introduced to you proper 
distinction between sport and mutation and discussed many (genetics 
related) subjects and responded to many questions. Al the conclusions
 presented to you in a simplified way to reach as many as possible, were based 
on extensive  research data, as it has been for nearly 40 years. 
 Although I have never seen a single message from someone else with 
"proofs" I was asked all the time to provide them and if provided they 
asked for more. Giving them, I was said  being too technical. Four or five
 people, although they never presented a single case of research,
 always seemed fit to insult me as I have never been before in my 
live. Very few of the 240 or so, other members did say anything 
positive.  I never insulted anyone on purpose. , but when attacked I defended 
myself. I know nicer and more inspiring things to do with Hosta and 
other plants. Especially as there has never been a single wrong word in the
 other non hosta robins were I actively participate.
Hope the gang of five will present you now with all their "extensive 
data"  based  on their research with Hosta,  of course with full 
Material and Methods and all proofs. 
Thanks for the cooperation.
