the bad news is, i think someone who was banned from this forum (Mahon) is posting opinions on the website too... i have not been a member of Slippertalk for long, but i guess the controversy he caused was because of his kolopakingii forma album 'Mahon'.. he also seems quite authoritative in his comments, so i will take his comments with a huge spoonful of salt.. :viking: :fight:

enjoy! :)

Mahon's banning was not because of the kolopakingii, it was due to months of lies and tall tales.

Among my favorites were the time he "described Paph. mahonianum with Olaf Gruss" (untrue, species doesn't exist!) and posted it on his myspace page, and the time he said that everyone in Ecuador poops in the streets. :rolleyes:
