>>  There are quite a few seed borne diseases out there, and folks like
you who distribute imported, untested seeds, help spread these
diseases.<<  The above is a false and slanderous!  If you don't know what
that means it means that I'm going to take legal action unless you retract
the statement immediately.

To those who are forced to put up with this claptrap, please be assured
that I am a hobby grower who does distribute some seeds on the internet
thru the following URL  < http://www.heirloomtomatoes.net >  I do import
some varieties in packet quantities.  These are not distributed but are
grown out in my trial garden.  Seed from those that are promising is
multiplied and sent to others. In all cases, any seed I send out has been
grown out and determined to be disease free.  There is a statement on the
web site stating that all seed has been harvested from gardens in Baltimore
County, MD and has been treated to preclude seed borne diseases.

Mr. Bromley, why don't you go pester the folks on some other list?  We have
done our time with you and I, for one, have no intention of wasting my time
with you further.
