    There have been what...3 busts over the past couple weeks with this sites members? There are a couple more on another site and rumer has it that there may be a link with Attitude seed bank. I don't know how strong the link is but it was enough for me to think that caution needs to be made. It may be a good idea to hold off on Attitude purchases until this is sorted out. I would hate to see any other members get busted.

    If anybody else has heard anything please post it here.

    WHAT??... you're "barkin' up a slick tree" I think.
    "IMO".. it's MUCH MUCH more likely associated with the folks involved in "exchanging personal information" through seed swaps, gifts, trades at "other" sites( of which I know several of you are involved in) rather than a 'trusted' and 'reputable' business..
    Unless there is SOME kind of substantiated evidence to support your "ugly rumor", I suggest you not be slandering the 'tude and promoting/inducing panic..
    I don't care for "gossip"...:mad:
    "IF" you have 'anything' other than some pothead, on some other site, taking wild guesses, I'll listen.

    Yeah, come on! One was busted because of a crazy landlord, another turned in by his ex....doubtful this is because of the feds watching this site....sorry, or the seedbank.

    I cant speak for everyone, but placing a seed order where i live is perfectly legal. not many police agencies are going to base an investigation off of seed orders.

    ahhh ... I think niite' is only 'looking out' for everyone. Just "passing along" what he's heard probably.
    But who's to say if it wasn't generated by someone with an agenda, an axe to grind, or competitor.
    "LOT'S" of members have ordered from them. I just don't believe they are related. As roddy pointed out.

    People are just freaked...but if you look at it on a case by case basis it is nosy neighbors or exes with an axe to grind that are doing people in.


    Tell no one is still the best advice a grower can follow as far as I am concerned. Friends and loved ones fight and do stupid and vindictive things...or that "friend" you told gets pinched and drops your name.

    I know of two people on another site, for certain, had thier seeds from Attitude intercepted and freeked out a little too, soon maybe but better safe than sorry. That is why I logged on to inform whoever. Always use a safe addy when ordering seeds.

    I have ordered seeds online for about 12 years and always had them delivered to my home. I even had an order in to Heaven's Stairway when OG went down. I have never had any kind of problem ordering seeds and I still believe that it is the safest part of growing. The people that have gotten busted who are members here had nothing at all to do with ordering seeds--as mentioned it was a crazy landlady and a vindictive ex.

    Unless homeland security is following the computer trail........ and just sending incidential info to local law enforcement....... hard to figure who has the resources to hunt down small time growers using seed orders....... like someone mentioned it ain't attitude...... might be your creditcard company or internet provider....... but it aint attitude...... so order in peace..... get stoned....... be safe...... AND TELL NO ONE.

    I read that those two that got their seeds intercepted were both in the same south american country. I'm no rocket scientist, but maybe it's their government and not attitude? I read on line that the military in that country came down hard on protesters a couple months ago.

    ...and how on earth, could you connect seeds intercepted in SA, with the busts from here??? or connect those here to attitude?? :rolleyes::rolleyes: That requires a pretty vivid imagination I'm thinkin'... a ridiculously vivid imagination... IMO

    Only a few minutes of research here, reveals that at least one of those here, was growing seeds from dr greenthumb I believe. A quick look at the tudes page, doesn't even carry his gear..:confused2:.. How did you connect that one to the tude??

    Man.... can't you see the possible collateral damage that spreading false information, Internet gossip, and unsubstantiated rumors can cause??.. :(

    Fine, tell everyone to have seeds sent directly to their homes and not take precautions if you want. I'm not surprised to have that kind of information put out here and somewhat expected it. I was only looking out for peeps and making a cautious suggestion. The 2 unrelated Brazilians that got busted aren't your neighbors Hick so why should you care, right? I care for everyone and strongly believe it is in their best interest to have a safe addy to use for seed purchases. The sellers are within their legal rights to sell their seeds where they are located but the buyers are the ones at risk. I think telling everyone to have seeds sent directly to their homes from commercial sellers is irresponsible and doing members a dis justice. This site should be looking out for peeps back not giving them info that may put them in harms way.

    We (MP) is absolutely concerned with "everyones" security and safety. Probably more so than what ever site you passed your 'bad' information from. To suggest different is nothing but 'another' unjustified and ugly lie. :( a false accusation.
    :confused2:...

    your initial post says NOTHING about "safe addy" or Brazil or any other purchases or seedbanks but Attitude.. It was an insinuation that Attitude might somehow be directly related to, responsible for or to blame for the busts here. Totally unfounded and nothing less than bad PR for the attitude. And you want to talk "irresponsible and dis justice"?? :eek:
    AGAIN... Please... tell me "HOW" you connected "anything" with the bust of members here to attitude. Explain to me how it is anything but a wild and far fetched accusation.
    Show me the slightest connection between our members busts and Brazil intercepting seeds.
    Did those brazillians order w/the 'stealth' option?..

    I'm still listening...

    My god....the 'tude probably surpassed Gypsy and Nirvana in seed sales. I could only imagine how many beans they have sent here.
    Fact is every bust posted here has absolutely nothing to do with the seed purchases. I have not seen, heard, or experienced any bust caused from getting seeds.
    I just don't see the point of this thread.
    When swapping with other members at ANY forum. just prudence is warranted. You take a HUGE risk trading among other members. You better make dang sure they are cool. Safe address or direct to the grow. doesn't matter. You have to get those seeds sooner or later. If they want you all they have to do is sit wait and watch.
    A seedbank does not want anyone getting busted. That kind of rumor would put them out of business.

    EXACTLY why I wanted to nip the bull-oney gossip in the 'bud', before it 'blooms' into fact..:rofl: This kind of crap spreads like wild fire. Wether there is a speck of truth or fact to substantiate it or not. Someone is always willing to run around yelling the sky is falling.
    The 'tude has a near flawless reputation. I'd hate to see it diminished due to internet gossip or rumors.
    I've asked for something connecting the dots. If nothing can be provided, I would expect a retraction of the accusation against attitude from the op. It would seem the "responsible" thing to do, no?
