[Powderworks] why weeds?

a couple of weeks ago someone posted a question/complaint about how
everyone is offering stuff as a weed and not as a tree. as someone
who offered quite a few of these weeds I would like to take the
opportunity and explain why.

simply put (and I think this was said by Oils Trees) they are much
easier than trees. no admin is required - I simply pick the 1st X
respondents, burn copies and post them. I have run trees before and
they are a pest (to me at least). my main goal was to get the shows
out asap and let the power of numbers spread it. the recent trees I
have seen on the list have been announced over a month ago and are
still not active.

I don't want to open up a debate here about weeds vs. trees. they
are both great and each have their own pros and cons. whoever posted
the initial question (you know who you are) - I have an offer. send
me your email address and I will keep it on file. the next time I
have something to offer I will send you a seed copy and you can get
a tree going while I weed it. this way we will have the "best of
both worlds". I simply do not have the time or the will to run
