we must have two different interpretations of the word “positive,” or at the very least, why someone would be “positive.”

on sites like these, text lacks tone and emotion, for the most part…
im not writing a novel or love letter.
so what a “positive” comment is, becomes very objective.

i’m not hemmingway, that’s for sure. ;)

Your comments are always so positive…

G. ventricosus…

isn’t the only large Gymnopilus species that fruits on the west coast on conifer wood.

“id call it that,” is a ridiculous vote…especially w/o micro.
yes…it MIGHT be…but, the only logical vote is, “could be.”

that still leaves the observation as G. ventricosus bc of your vote…
regardless of what name is proposed with a logical confidence level.
