find me one unevenly sulcate, subdistantly-gilled Crepidotus with a lobed margin and one Plicaturopsis crispa with any real, straight, upright, non-Pseudomerulius-like gills at all, and I’ll reconsider.

there’s nothing wrong with being wrong. I do it all the time. there problem is going buckwild with bad ideas against many, many months of comments, private messages, notes in the margins of competing name proposals gently (and then less gently) informing you of the err of your ways, and not so much as acknowledging the presence of any of them. i call that spam.

I don’t think

calling this a Crepidotus is nonsense. And calling it Plicatura crispa is just slightly more non-sensible than calling it Schizophyllum.

It just seems to me to vote against something you believe to be wrong, write a comment as to why (something I don’t have time to do all that often), and let the community as a whole decide on it.

I don’t know how to get Alain’s attention, so I thought an email alert of a name change to ‘Nonsense’ might work. The problem is his very aggressive campaign of applying very poor choices of names throughout the site without ever taking into account the comments or suggestions of other users. As someone who combs site activity on an almost daily basis (and goes through the days I’ve missed when back at a computer), I find it really, really frustrating to have to clean up a mess that keeps getting made without any sign of slowing down.

Joe is deleting the name any moment now, as Alain finally decided to comment on something, though I must admit, I’m really not hopeful.

Is this for real?

Proposing the name “Nonsense” is one of the most childish things I have seen on this site.

The larger MO get, the more downhill it seems to go…
