Re: AIS: membership

There are so many sites that have IRis only discussions
Garden web, Tinkers Garden etc. that even if
AIS had control of this site, making it member only would eliminate a lot
of people looking for information found else where.
I found the discussions here deeper than the average Iris grower/lover
would ever want to know and some would find it daunting information not
easily understood.Fact is I have to look up things else where during
certain discussions here.
The AIS is a non-profit organization that has the goal of disiminating
information about the irisin all its forms and cutting off a section of
interaction I think would be counter productive. :)

IRIS-TALK and IRIS-PHOTOS are not or never have been part of AIS.
