Subject: cp, sites, what i think you should know.

right, first things first, i never said i would publish in book form, i did
say on the web, but your views have changed all that. now i'm doing it
strictly because im interested in how many sites there are in britain, and
so if i'm dropping by i can have a look at them, and also, the good honest
people out there deserve to be able to look at the plants in the wild, not
in some dumb nursery.

now if i ever gave any information out, it would be to the most trusted
people, like the head of a society, or the next door neighbour who would
like a look at them.

i'm 15, and in my lifetime(what little i've had of it, compared to you guys)
i've seen plenty of cp poachers. i was walking at a known site, and i saw
people digging up cp's buy the bucketful. now, i think poachers should rot
in hell, and so do u, most probably.
but because the poachers had been there , they had left quite a big hole
where the plants should have been.

also on the subject, is a site near me. it is boggy much of the year, and i
have always thought that something carnivorous must grow there. but one or
two years ago, i learnt that there was planning permission, and they're
gonna build on it either this year, or next year. if there are any cp's
there, they are surley gonna die. and also cp's aren't the only thing that
are living there. there are also deer there, and the size of the woods, the
deer won't be able to survive after the buildings done, so they either stay
where they are and die, or they go across the main road into a bigger

believe me, i'm all for cp conservation, and all that, i think that all the
good guys out there, which is almost all of you on this mailing list,
deserve to know where the nearest site is so you can enjoy looking at the

i know i have raised a lot of views over this, and let me know what you
think after you have read this, depending on the reply i get will deside the
fate of the map. whether it should just go, or be just a reseach thing for
me, or whether the good people out there like you and me, should be able to
see plants growing in their natural beauty, not in some stinkin garden

so i'll leave you with this thought, due to building, peat haversting and
bog draining, cp sites are getting less and less common, would you like to
see them growing free in the wild, or as some named location plant from an
extinct area. it's your choice, personally, i enjoy it much more when i'm
out walking and see a couple of the plants around me, it's better than
having a 'newforset d.rotundiflora' stuck on your windowsill, or in you
greenhouse, so what do you think?
