@busso, honestly, I am not trying to be a smart ass but I am not sure what in my post could raise this question.
Topic starter reported him to FlowHive and it is where this part of the story ends for me.
From what I read this is not so for topic starter. It is a quality of “Fact Sheet” what started them up.
I got in touch with him and according to his “Fact Sheet”
Whether they want to pursue counterfeit products is a matter for them. I gave them all the info I had, including phone and address of the offender. My main concern is the increase of hives in urban areas and deliberately misinformed new beekeepers by sellers
It seems that selling counterfeit goods was just a convenient instrument to express unhappiness about the quality of the information that was provided for free.
If this fellow is doing something illegal, and one feels that it is their citizen’s duty to stop illegal activity, fine, report him to authorities. It will be dealt with. But to use any possible pretext to throw human’s life to dogs just because one doesn’t like an advice… Call me an idealistic idiot, but it is not how I see human society where one may live comfortably in.
Practical question to those who know.
I tried to find a feature on this forum that usually called “signature”? A block where one can put a text that will be published with each post? Does it exist? I think it is good idea to put some disclaimer which translated from lawyer’s mumble jumble means “I know nothing about beekeeping, don’t follow my advice and if you did don’t shoot me”
