I think that the point here is that many people who are not list members have 
access to the archives, and there are many people new to growing iris on our list.
While one positive comment on a business willl usually have little impact, one negative 
comment will spread like wildfire. People will take this negative comment like the gospel.
If we are addressing a disreputable nursery, they may deserve it, but a nursery who 
is as excellent as Schreiner's  and others mentioned on this list do not deserve to lose
business because of  rare mistakes they will willingly correct if made aware. 

Just my $.02 opinion, I could be wrong.
