Dear Steve,

Just ignore this silly witch.   You do not need to and owe no one an appology!
There are some people who are motivated by ''who knows what'' that no one can, or will ever please them, and this "Holly Cooper'' is for certain one of them.   They hide behind pseudo-names, will NEVER step ''into the light'' and face anyone, and try to accomplish their nasty deeds from behind a veil of darkness, trying to tear down anything which they cound NEVER accomplish or come close to doing.   Ask that witch what he/she has EVER accomplished, and NOTHING will come back at you!   THEY are the "loosers'' in life, not good folk like you who do all that you do for the love and pleasure of it!   I`d be willing to bet (and I am NOT a ganmbler!) that there are few if ANY e-mails flying anywhere on ANY forum, certainly NOT between anyone on the aroid-l forum.   I can speak for myself, and believe that I can also do so for Tom Croat of MOBOT who is a VERY good personal friend, AND for Leland Miyano, also a GREAT friend to both you and I-- we all are PROUD to be of assistance to
  you and to be associated with you and the fantastic work and results you have and continue to produce, almost on a daily basis!   Ignore the ''ner-do-wells'' and ''nay-sayers'', keep up the good work.   
Since I am one of the people who it would seem Holly alleges am ashamed of you, I DARE this "Holly Cooper" to write to me and debate this!   How DARE she/he/it take it upon themself to even TRY to speak for me!!  "There are none so blind as those who will not see".
You have my permission to post this anywhere and send it to anyone you choose.
You just keep up the GREAT work!

> I received a very disturbing message tonight with a direct copy (slightly edited) that I posted on this forum about my construction of my epiphyte tree.  The message came from a person whose name showed up as Holly Cooper.  I do not know Holly but she has posted a similar message once before on the GardenWeb.  In that case, another individual had requested a photo of Anthurium cubense.  I had taken a photo of Denis' plant which was tagged Anthurium cubense with Leland Miyano standing with it at the 2007 IAS Aroid Show.  As it turned out, Leland later pointed out the vein count on that plant did not match Dr. Croat's scientific description so we learned later that plant is not a full species and liekly a hybrid.  The moderators of the GardenWeb forum took down her post since it referred to me by a strong term.
> If I have irritated any of you with my constant comments and questions, I sincerely apologize.  I am only a student of aroid botany and constantly ask questions in order to learn.  I don't believe anyone can find any place on my website or on the net where I have ever claimed to be an expert in plants.  I just study them, ask a lot of questions of Dr. Croat, Leland and Julius and I probably read too much.  The only aroid experts I know are the ones I try to accurately quote in my internet articles.
> This is what I received from Ms. Cooper.  I have purposely removed her email address:

> YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The people you so religiously quote are ashamed to be associated with you.  Yes!  It's true!  Emails are flying behind your back!  You are the absolute shame of the UBC horticultural site.  NO ONE wants to be associated with you but out of pity they endure your presence.  STOP GRANDSTANDING.  CAN YOU NOT HEAR THE LAUGHTER??????????????????
> Again, my apologies if I have offended anyone on Aroid l.  It was certainly not intended.
