Hi Steve

Thanks for your note.

We (Malesiana Tropicals) have filed a complaint with the ebay
moderators/complaint board and you'll see that this ebook has been
withdrawn. There is still the issue that this guy's site
(www.alocasiaaddict.com) features unauthorized use of photographs (see my
earlier aroid-l posting about the use of MT's (mine, in fact) image of
Alocasia robusta - now removed (see cc'd email I've just posted on aroid-l).
I urge all folks who post images of their plants on the web to check this
guy's site and email him (alocasiaaddict@yahoo.com) if he's using anything
anything without permission. As I've written privately to Denis, I guess
what upsets me the most  is that even when in commercial competition with
one another plant folks are basically all friends, often close friends of a
long-time standing, and thus some guy coming in and bleeding us and making
money from it is not a nice feeling.
