He was one of the first people I met on this site he REALLY proved this to be A FRIENDLY COMMUNITY and didn't make me sell that bonsai, which sent me into a depressed state

So sad that appearently you have to live in lalaland and you should not inform people that if they want bonsai, you have to have patience or get better trees.
Interesting to see all these comments here.

I totally agree! I bought some ficus ginseng trees from eBay sold as bonsai, posted a pic on here and AUK pipes up and says...."they are not Bonsai and never will be" so I message the seller and tell him what Auk told me...I then get a lot of irritation from the seller! That so called expert Auk was not a great advocate for this wonderful forum and novice bonsai artist like myself.

He was right though. It is not a bonsai. It is just a ficus with big roots grafted on it.
That does not mean you cannot enjiy it. Bit it has nothing to do with bonsai. So get over it.

I second that.
Lads you are getting pissed of by people telling you truth, not praising your first wiring, first dig, styling a tiny stick ... come on harden the .... up!
