    I can't translate the message, but it is from a young russian guy who likes motorcycles and was recently on a trip to what I would guess from the photos is Thailand. He has a thing for all the motor scooters used there, and he travelled with several male friends, some of whom look quite tough.

    Dang, I missed that one. No it is gone. Back to OrchidTalk.
    We got several spammers today. Weird.

    I voted don't care as I will grow anything that takes my fancy irrespective of whether hybrid or species. I have a fair number of species in my collection but just because I like them as orchids not because they are species plants

    Don't have anything against hybrids, I just like species better. I enjoy. I really like growning something that also grows in nature somewhere.
