I refer to those OTHER east coast yuppies. By that time you were not part of the group...and neither were many of us.

I have no idea who these people are they just give me the creeps for some reason.
I'm too much of a dumb southern country boy to fit in to their little foo foo club.
In other words I know my place in life and it isn't there.

WTS is a group of self-serving con artists with ulterior motives, shady behavior and bad intentions.

If you are a member or affiliated with them, you are no longer welcome here. If you are a vendor and I promote you here, your name will be removed from the list of recommended vendors and every current and past mention of your business will be erased from this site.

If you accost fellow members here to join or try to divert web traffic to their site, you will be permanently banned without prior notification. Any future posts or links promoting WTS will be deleted and the poster will lose their access to Tomatoville.


There will be no new threads created to discuss this "society". Use this one if you want to comment further.

I just found out that by the magic of whatever, I was a group member. Fixed that in a hurry. It appears that many people were added to the membership without their knowledge. Folks might want to check to see if you were a victim like I was.

Mischka, I am not a member nor do I have or want any affiliation with them. Until I looked, I didn't know they existed. They were the 7th group in my list. I am now going to look hard at the others.

How do you even see if you are a member? I didn't see a member's list or anything.

I never heard of it until this thread. So, I am pretty sure I am not signed up there for any reason what so ever.

Has someone been in touch with all the other "Seed Partners" known to be reputable to see if they are aware of their inclusion on the list?

I'm thinking that if Ted didn't know his seed company had been included as a partner, how many of the others just got tossed on without their knowledge/approval?

I'm the OP and apologize for any problems that were caused. I only looked at the photos and didn't do complete research on the site before posting of its existance. I had no idea there were members of this forum being exploited unknowingly until now. I am thankful that I didn't use it further and hope no one's information is at risk.

No worries, Ted. I know you'd never willingly affiliate yourself with such a group. How disgusting of them to use your good name to legitimize themselves.

I know next to nothing about the WTS web site, the people who run it, their reputations or motives & have no reason to doubt those at T'ville who are better informed or have had experience with them.



However, FWIW, I am in a Facebook tomato group (that I asked to join) which added WTS to its name (about 3 months ago) & enjoy my time there. Just wanted to make that distinction.
