...What the!?!? There's gotta be a better way to resolve this...........first, I think Maiden should be reimbursed for the unforseen financial losses he incurred, by everyone involved in the order. In my opinion, only after this, could the paid for but missing plant issue be addressed. If I was organising a group order and at the end, was out 2 or 3 G's, plus, ordered plants that did not arrive, honestly, I'd be more worried about my own ass, not so much everyone's plants. There's some bigger numbers involved here. Beyond our control, politics come into play here and f..k everything up. Anytime I have taken part in a group order, as soon as I had paid for my plants, I knew, I just kissed my money goodbye, you have to be prepared for that. Caveat Emptor (thanks Lloyd). Maiden I know is solid from years passed, Edward, don't really know you too much, either way we can't afford to lose two functioning and contributing members. Such a shame.
I've been on this forum for years and this is the worst Karma I have felt so far. I'm very saddened by the outcome of this public display of negativity. I think this will be a good lesson and if we act properly we can turn a bad situation into a good one but we must not allow time to turn raw emotions into solid conclusions. I'm with shoggoths regarding handling this situation with more discretion. I think losing two members in a community as tiny as ours is a devastating loss and I come from a place where small community ties are taken seriously. Way not just organize a conference call/chat where a couple or so members from here who know both parties. We need to let our members know that they are valued and hopefully they will realize this is all just a misunderstanding. So much gets lost to interpretation when writing on public forums and I think something a bit more intimate will allow for better expression. It's too bad that it has come to this as I have read everything and believe everyone is a both right and wrong and that compared to losing two members it's all very trivial. The good thing is I believe this will allow a few members to become a bit closer as any good group chat does but the community as a whole will be stronger knowing we can overcome such adversities.
