I personally enjoy reading peoples for sale and wants lists.
Its thru this list that I have managed to obtain some very interesting and
choice plants.
Whilst I agree that offering spider plants is perhaps not the best way to
conduct our CP chat, I think that its also important to accept that newbies
to the list (and the hobby) have different priorities.
Don't you remember when you first sprouted loads of D. capensis and wanted to
sell them to the world? (rather than throw them out as a weed).
What has struck me about this list is the mutual respect and help that is
handed out at all levels (especially compared to other newsgroups), and I for
one would not want it to be changed, even if I dont want to read articles
about spider plants.
If you dont like it skip over it!!

BTW are any of those D.filiformis for sale? (grin)
