    Actually, Nelson, while supporting your sentiment, I do have to take Amy's side in her caution.

    This forum has grown beyond the hobbyist's corner, and while some respected taxonomists post pubically here, even more watch it from a distance aka lurkers, or easily find our posts with a quick online search. Were I a professional botanist in the field with a lifetime of research and a career at stake, I wouldn't risk a premature disclosure on a public forum either.

    I just had this discussion with a friend who is a pro, the other day. The Web and the Internet are simply too new as communication forms for most users to realize the breadth of reach, and the need for discretion.

    Most of us are here for relaxation and personal rec time. But what we say can be viewed by anyone, and easily captured with a search engine - whether or nor these folks are active members on the forum, or even known to us.

    Sensitive information is just that. Discretion must rightfully be used, and we need to understand. When careers are decided by who scoops whom, our curiosity needs to reasonably take a back seat.

    Good luck with your work, Amy!

    Default Thank you, Piper.

    And, very well put also.

    Maybe it was more prudent to have kept silent then, or state immediately that she thinks otherwise, but that the information she has is for publication and that it would be premature on her part to disclose it.
