In reply to:

Also, so you know, you are misunderstanding the "photo-manipulation" issue here; there was NO adding to the pic, it was a pic taken of the same crop, only at different times. Some had been harvested.. THAT's ALL!




Well that's not really true....

First look at the pics in my first post...than look at this pic:



so i cut a part out again (as mcman did)...









The mushrooms in this part are the same as the ones that McMan has added to the picture of the "Pink Buffalo KS" strain. He shifted them up, and i know his defense will be:", it was a pic taken of the same crop, only at different times" but that's not true. It's a picture that has been digitally tampered with to make it look more attractive or to make it look different from the other image.

McMan, apparantly a lot of people don't find it disturbing, well i do. And what i find even more disturbing is that you now blatanly lie about it. If you say something you should stick with that. People are praising you for the fact that you admit what you did, but i find it really sad that you, in again a very well spoken manner, lied about the manipulation of those images.

Really, i've lost all respect you :-(

This has to be the height of pettiness. Some people have waaaaaaaay to much free time on their hands to create nitpicking bicker.

After having ordered many syringes from Ralph I can say
confidently that your adverage customer (I freely admit to being ignorant here) would pay little attention to those tiny photos.

If the received product wasn't what was advetised I'd have issue with that but I haven't seen that explained as being the case.

Really pathetic jealously is the only thing I can possibly attribute this too.

I have lurked around these boards for months watching McMan & Ralph helping the community here (and selfishly ME) out tremendously and they are reaping the benefits.

This seems to really be winding some people's clock that a buck or two might be going into someone elses pocket.

I can't say anything but "What a bunch of shit" Seems to me like the owners of a business would not bring things like this to the "Soap Opera" that seems to be starting here. I think it is a sad day for past, present and future potential customers to see all the bickering going on here.

I have been watching these threads for quite some time like I do at every site before I decide to join it. As a matter of fact I wasn't even planning on joining here but figured I should just to be an asshole and put in my .02 since everyone else was.

thedm9, I was wondering who was fucking or sucking who in all of this maybe you can help a poor ignorant traveler out, you seem to have a sense of what "IS" going on here even though you state " (I freely admit to being ignorant here) ".

Una, I applaud you for you post. I think that manipulating anything for a supposedly legitamite buisness is total bullshit. If you don't have a pic then don't post one, it's that simple. Why stoop down to false practices in order to promote something that you are supposedly confident in.

That's just poor business ethics, and so is all the finger pointing and flaming. I suspect that alot more shit will come out before this is all said and done and I will be here to watch it all and laugh when the liars and puppets in the play fall.

So, now that I have that out of the way I would like to say "HELLO" to everyone here at the Shroomery. I feel like I know so many of you already but hell I don't think half of you know who you are anymore...LOL...

I'll be watching...waiting...laughing...and smacking myself in the face if I was out of line, but I know I wasn't so my face is safe. For now.

Trying to make something from nothing by way of osmosis....

Life is like...well...you know...

>For some of the pics, the front tray was elevated with some
>magazines to make for a better pic. I manipulated the camera
>and the trays, but not the photos!
McMan, every time you open your mouth(or at least use the keyboard) a lie comes out.

There is something called perspective. You should know this as an webdesigner.
If you make a photo from an object, and the object or the camera changes the position (in your case the camera would have to stand still, as you said, there should be no doubt about the camera standing still, since the tray in the behind doesn?t change) this object in the front would be to a different angle to the camera.
Let me show this on an example:
between these 2 pictures the tray was moved slightly , and look what happens to the way the mushrooms look:


Do you notice any difference? Probably, because there IS a difference because this WERE 2 photos, not 1 manipulated like at the picture you designed.

It?s not about this one picture,McMan, it?s about being honest.
Being honest to the OMC, to your other customers and lastly to yourself.
Try to understand this.

Well basically it seems like the boards have turned into a big childhood playground where the vendors have pissing contests the like to make US politics up on capitol hill look like the disney channel.

It looks like we both probably picked a bad time to introduce ourselves to this community. I guess some people are just really unhappy with their lives.... So much so that their only source of pleasure is manning the keyboard looking for any little attempt to tear other people down.

As far as "being ignorant".. I didn't mean to imply that I didn't understand what was going on here... it's quite obvious to me. I meant that I would never have noticed the tiny photo details being nit-picked about in this thread, and I don't think your adverage customer would either. It's the finished product that I expect quality from, not some tiny graphics.

The boards, other than this thread and maybe one or two others this community is its normal self.

Please don't let just one thread or something in the minority determine the whole place...

When you look at all the sporelab bashing these two have contributed, including cutting down pics I took of new strains, then its only fair they take some heat.

At least my pics were the real thing, not doctored up fakes.

This whole thing is just another example of the sleazy business practices I have seen these two exhibit the past few months, from extreme spamming to extreme trolling.

That was very observant of you Una and you did the right thing by exposing these fakers!

Thats my 2 cents and you can take it to the bank.
