Why All Should Avoid The Spore Trading Post
    #609379 - 04/15/02 09:06 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

As if you didn't already know this.

I have had it with STP/the Keeper. Late last year I made an arrangement to trade some edible mushroom cultures with him, and he agreed. As a gesture of trust, I sent my samples out right away. He got them.

I on the other hand, got nothing, except for the emails I have included below, stating variously that they had BEEN shipped already, or WOULD BE very soon. One after the other, apologizing for the mix up, and stating it had been rectified. And I waited, and waited, and still nothing arrived.

Finally I sent the email below, giving him a chance to explain what happened and why he did not send the samples, and I have had no response.

I don't care about the samples, I got the cultures I requested from another source long ago. Its the principle, and since I promised to defame STP if I got no response, here it is.

He's not called The Keeper for nothing . . .

As he says,

Stay cool!

My emails, newest first:

STP -

Before I defame your company with anyone who will listen, I?m giving you one last chance to explain why you have said numerous times that you were shipping out my culture trades, and still I have received nothing, nada, zero, zilch. NOTHING.

It would make sense if you were a shyster, as so many people claim, but what I don?t get is why you would even bother SAYING you have or will send my cultures out, if you really had no intention of doing so.

So if you respond to this, please EXPLAIN why you say one thing and do another (i.e. Nothing), rather than just saying ?its in the mail?, like you have done the last 6 times.

All previous emails are included in this one, so don?t bother with the excuse that you don?t know which order I?m referring to. Just scroll down.

Yours very temporarily,
Armedia

Hello!

I will check with my shipping dept. ASAP!

Your Morel Mycelium has grown out on a petri dish already.
To my understanding your request was to be sent by Priority Mail in the beginning of February!!!

I am personally going to do this one myself today.
I am concerned about the cold weather.

I will pack it up as warm as possible.

Stay cool!

Hi -

Still waiting.

>From my calculation, you have told me at least three times that the cultures were "shipped", and yet nothing has arrived. If you are never going to actually send them, just say so, and I'll stop wasting my time sending emails. (You could return my cultures too.)

No offense intended, but I have heard others speak of STP as a less than reliable business, and nothing you have done so far has proven them wrong.

I'm still hoping you will . . .

Hello!

I believe that is leaving this morning via Priority Mail.

In the future this will not happen. We had some real problems with the new lab but, after 4 weeks of sanitizing and hair pulling, we finally have it down to a science again.

When responding please ensure that the ORIGINAL EMAIL IS INCLUDED, either by using the REPLY option or cutting and pasting it in. Failure to do so, may cause a delay in responding.

Stay cool!

Keeper -

Could you tell me on what date you shipped the samples? I am leaving for a vacation on 1/12, and hope to get them plated before then. They'll probably be fine until I return, but I'd hate to have them left in my mailbox, in below 0 temps for any length of time.

Thanks and happy new year,
A

Hello!

Do me a favor and send me your shipping address. I believe I might have forgotten the switch of cultures.

I just need to look-up the order and see...I might need a few more days if I did not transfer the correct culture for you.

Sounds great, except please remember that I asked to change my request for Morchella to Stropharia R-A (unless you wanted to send both!)

Thanks again & Happy New Year,
