i really hate it when someone treads on a thread. i want everyone to know that henry fields and gurneys have been good at least for me, for the past two years. and they have a $20 coupon for orders over $40. and i bought 8 great fruit trees for less than $30. and when one died, they replaced it. great price and great service. give em a chance. and if you want to talk about another nursery, do it on another thread. thanks
Randy, I suppose that was my fault--I see your point. However, if you were to read the thread as a "Hey I really like THESE guys" then your comment is completely out of line. If you are advertising for either Henry Fields of Gurneys then you have a reasonable beef, however, I doubt that the others on the thread took this a direct attempt to sway the conversation away from someone you want to recommend. I appreciated the note you gave, and I had an honest question from some of the other replies.
Now, *if* you really don't see my point, then let me make 2 suggestions. In the future you can:
a) write me personally, as I can assure you, the slight was not intentional.
b) write the moderator who has the perfect right to correct me if the moderator sees that I have erred in my netiquette.
Otherwise, please refrain from attempting to slap a fellow poster down on a thread, whether you started the thread or not.
With much regard, apologies, and innocent recommendations intended,
