[seedsavers] End the agenda
Some of us are acquainted with Kent and Diane Whealey, some are not. In
either case it seems very unprofessional to use this list serve as a forum
to take sides in their truly unfortunate situation.
And, because they have a right to protect their name and trademarks and
since it appears they are not afraid of litigation in order to do so, I
think we should all be mindful of the laws which protect individuals from
public disparagement. Some remarks have been more than unkind, and they¹re
based on assumption, not fact.
Let's agree to put this to rest and let Lawrence deal with the logistics
and legalities of the list, with whatever private advisors he chooses.
I personally would like to focus on seed-saving. So, let¹s find a name
that¹s fully ours, doesn¹t infringe on anyone¹s legal territory and get to
doing what we all really enjoy.
