Please note that I said "I support AIS!"   

I did not say that AIS did not have it's place.  As you state, without the 
registration system there would be horticultural chaos in the iris world.  
And, in my opinion, the R & I are probably the most important service AIS 
provides. I have and will continue to registered irises, and I have GREATLY 
appreciated the ability to look up parentage on potential iris parents.  

However, if the AIS caved in tomorrow and I was no longer able to register 
irises or look them up . . . . , I would still be interested in irises!  I 
simply stated that I, PERSONALLY, did not NEED the AIS,  to stay interested 
in iris.  As I tried to point out, I am an iris nut, a TB iris nut, without 
any help or prodding from AIS!  AIS did not in anyway tie my hands, put a gun 
to my head and say, "You must love TB irises only!"   

The devil made me do it!
