Very mundane. But I belong to a horticultural board and awhile back a question came up about whether it’s possible to grow a particular plant via seed. Calla lilies. There didn’t seem to be much info on that, as this plant is normally grown from tubers, so I wrote up my experience with it. Nothing fancy, and no more than I’d blather on about here if the subject came up.
So I get an email from this guy on the board who is asking me if I’m the guy selling seeds for this plant on eBay. Well, no I’m not selling seeds on eBay. He gave me a link to the ad and sure enough the guy selling the seeds copy/pasted my post about how I grow these plants from seed.
I mean, I’m kinda flattered someone out there thinks I know what I’m talking about. But, I wrote the post in the first person. “I did this, I did that. This is my experience.”
So by copy/pasting it word for word, it sounds like he’s presenting his experience, as me.
Should I be miffed or flattered? Plus, he’s shipping the seeds in winter, which I don’t think is a good idea.
I warned you it was mundane.
