I don't believe that anyone is trying to boot non-scientists off of this
newsgroup, and certainly NO ONE has implied that non-scientists are
unsophisticated or uninterested in the more "scientific" aspects of fungal
biology. I really hope we aren't going to break down into an "us versus
them" situation. All lovers of fungi and things mycelial should be welcome
on this group. I think the main concern among professional mycologists is
the low level of usage of this group by us. This is probably due to the
various reasons that have been mentioned in previous posts, and has little
or nothing to do with the fact that the group has been most frequently used
by "recreational" mycologists rather than professionals.
And now here is a question to the mushroom hunters. Has anyone ever eaten
red chanterelle? My mushroom book (Orson Miller's) says they are "edible",
but sometimes that means they won't make you ill, but they taste pretty
awful. My lawn was covered with them a few weeks back (an impressive
sight!), but by the time I looked up what they were, they had gone.
