In reply to:

and your 15 strains do the talking for you.





Ralph, that statement obviously applies to me.

I bought a very small amount (compared to my overall stock] of prints from you when I first began. As I told you then, the prints I bought retail was about 5% of my total stock inventory. I also told you exactly what my plans were to do with them. Remember?

I haven't bought from you in months, I don't have too.
I have a team of dedicated wholesalers who are more than happy to keep things going status quo. My stock inventory is huge.

As far as fucking you in the ass, I hope your not talking about me as my syringes are $10, the exact same price as yours.

Maybe I'm wrong and you were not referring to me and if that's the case I'm sorry but that 15 strains comment hits pretty close to home.

Btw, I personally know two wholesalers that you buy from as well so just because you admit to cultivating don't start calling the kettle black.

As for the FSR, that's your deal and what you do with it is entirely up to you.

thanks for your services ralph. i purchased a few prints from you in the past (never used the fsr though). the $1 prints were a good contribution to the community and i am sure you got a lot of people started off well. as for the new vendors, i guess they think spore distribution is about the money and undercutting the competition is logical to them. paying $10-20 for a print to support reputable vendors is chump change to just about anyone whose not some kid that shouldn't be growing anyway. to forment price wars is absolutely absurd in the spore business because that only leads to lesser profits for people who spend the bulk of their time supplying the community with spores. cannabis seed distributors charge between $4-10 per seed because its about buying the reputation and supporting the people who make the strains possible.

It is sad to hear you are bowing out for now man, seems these new money makers don't do business the "old fashioned" way, I guess you might say. When there are alot of options to consumers, people start getting undercut, business gets cuthroat, and some people go under.... it sucks, but its the truth. I think the loyalty factor has been lost as of late also, especially on this board, because of the sudden influx of new cultivators here and on other boards.

--The best thing for the cultivator would be the ability to make their own prints and syringes, pass them out for free to everyone, and we all share our spores....... BUT that would put you out of business along with the rest of the schemers on this board. So you cannot wholely support the idea of "Free Spores" while at the same time running a business of your own, the concepts conflict. However, I think you anticipated your generosity in the FSR project would come back to help your business interests, however it kind of backfired. Either way, I know you do good business, so it sucks to see you go.

(Isn't it weird that all this conversation and debate we all do is centered around magic mushrooms? People make me laugh.)

Ralphster, im sorry about what happen with the whole FSR. I have never bought or tried to trade with you but... I still feel bad. Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to be nice to people.

Well your heart was in the right place when you started the FSR. As much time and work as it takes to produce spores, prints & syringes, then having to ship them all, in everything entailed in between there, I'm surprised you kept the FSR going this long.
And now to see some people taking advantage of that, buying your $1 prints for so cheap then turning around and trying to make more money off the people of the shroomery for them... that is just down right devious and low.
I think you should post their names. I'm sure they will be trying to buy prints from anyone and everyone who is willing to sell to them.... where is the quality in that?

I'm glad to hear You're getting the monkey off your back while keeping the FSR alive.

THE KING IS DEAD. LONG LIVE THE KING. ALL PRAISE TEONAN!

(Old world coronation ceremony. I believe that would make you a Duke now.)

The issues of reliability of the new vendors, I believe, adequately justifies their syringe prices, making them only compeitive, and not, by any means a bargain. The established vendors should maintain their current prices, and if the noobs start to gain a decent reputation, the noobs should raise prices.

Now, it's alot harder to raise prices than it is to lower them. If I were they, I would start referring to their current prices as "sale prices". When the time is right, they should raise their prices for a while up to ,say, $7.50. See how that works out. If proffits explode, stick with it. If they just hold steady, or drop. Have another "sale" at a lower price, but not $4, maybe $5.50-$6.00.

Anyway, that's just my prediction of where the chips are gonna fall. As long as they're getting their spores ethicaly and from a reliable source, let the community be the judge.

How many prints have you sent to these people? Were they the $1 prints? If you knew it was them, why did you send them?
