Don cannot define himself, yet he wants to define others that he does not
even know? Who's the real fraud?
Oh, Toni Gee said that Einstein did not have a degree and flunked math in
third grade. And his education did not go past third grade. Something to
Billy Rose, symplastless - this sounds like a cult.
You respond like spoiled 8 year olds. If you've actually gotten paid for
this and you think this thread is helping your career, you must live in
bumfuck, egypt and have a lot of truly ignorant clients. You do know
what the Usenet is, right? Anybody who can punch up Google can read
your inane and callow retorts. And you think they won't research you? Ha!
You whine about Don's or Joe's credentials but show no scientific rigor
in your own statements. They don't have to show a resume- they were here
when this group started and before that on bionet agroforestry. We
started these groups. You repeat yourself constantly- perhaps you're
brain damaged. You seem to have derived your knowledge, if that's what
you call it, directly from divine inspiration- Ezekiel, eh? More likely
plagiarism from the good Dr.s publications. Stop cross posting to alt.
forestry and I promise- I won't cross post to alt.great lakes or
rec.gardens. This is a professional and social group where working
Foresters can blow off steam, compare issues and talk about problems.
You've been getting a pretty polite treatment so far.
Treelady, et, Al.
The only reason you find "Symplastless" to have a good understanding of
trees is that you are ignorant.
Note that I stated "ignorant" and not stupid. My statement is not an
insult, but rather a logical reply based on your input.
It is obvious that none of the rest of you have enough experience with
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) to offer advice or experience with the critter.
So, instead this thread becomes a fury of insults. How ridiculously
I am the only one who has offered any positive information about this
topic, with the exception of the person who started this thread - and
that person was *NOT* "Symplastless".
Just because "Symplastless" has a "good understanding of trees" (a
statement coming from someone ("Treelady") who may or may not have
credentials), doesn't mean he knows anything about EAB.
His offer that healthy trees respond more vigorously to fend off disease
and pathogens as a response to an EAB infection speaks volumes to his
ignorance of the matter.
"D. Staples", a forester in the SE *IS* educated, as is "Joe" (a
forester in the NE.) There are other professional people who serve the
posters on this newsgroup as well. We all have paid our dues serving
the public, serving private and group land ownerships and acquiring a
degree from different universities.
This is something that Keslick ("Symplastless") has *NOT* done.
...and his lack of knowledge on the subject matter, along with his
self-marketing is a typical combination of a scam artist.
THIS is why I suggested to the original poster to simply ignore him.
I'd recommend that advice to my colleague D. Staples once again too.
(Note to Don, cheap entertainment yes - but there are bigger bangs for
the buck so to speak).
As to you other faux geniuses out there, (e.g. "Billy Rose"), please
take the mensa test and see how you score. I suspect that you will not
fare as well as you think.
