Hi all,

        I just have to voice my public support for Andrew in this
situation. I have known Andrew for a long time. He is one of the people
who first helped me in building my beginners collection of plants, often
donating extras at no charge. From what I've seen of Andrew's photos and
plants, he has absolutely no reason whatsoever to steal someone else's
photos for his own use. I completely agree that it was a mistake on
Stephan's part to bring this into the public forum, since this was really
a private matter. A simple request to remove the photos or give him
credit really would have solved the problem.

        Just my two cents!
