I'd love to get some spores and some MHRB sent my way, but I don't want to have it delivered to my home address for obvious reasons. Has anyone gotten a PO box without it being tied to their home address, and if so, how'd you manage it?

If you got a fake rental agreement for another address you could have a PO box not tied to your home address. You can ship the stuff to my address if you want :)

I'm Adesa, and I'm a main grower of Marijuana. (Legal in my state).
I have wanted to get into shrooms, and I do Acid. :P

Now, I'm not too sure where to begin yet, but I stumbled across this forum from a simple google search and thought I'd give it a go and get some advice from a community that knows what they're doing. 

Some more info about me:

I'm tech savvy

I hack, whitehat only > I have some more info on this at the end of the post.

I'm kind and generous. 
I have a beautiful wife and a gorgeous little girl.

If you have any questions let me know!

The hacking thing ~~

Now I've seen some posts of some of you here using RalphstersSpores. Please do not use them. Back in March of 2018, I was doing some research and came across their site and I had seen that they were basically letting their users data be leaked. I had messaged them, stating their system was flawed and they were releasing everyone's info (including usernames and hashed passwords). They had ignored my messages. So I had defaced the site for about 1 day stating this before they put the site back up. I had then redone it, but this time deleted all files and databases so nobody else could be leaked. I didn't delete the backups of the database, just so they know that they're doing something wrong. But they still didn't care. They are still vulnerable. They just do not listen. So you are free to use them at your own risk, however, I wouldn't. P.S. Change your passwords if you reuse them from that site. 

ON ANOTHER NOTE, thanks for having me. Hope to get to know all of you! 

:)

Welcome to 'Topia!

 

I don't think they care as their procedure is send the cash and get your spores.

Their online username and login is just a simple way to produce a printout of an order to mail in to them.
There really is no order system underlying.

 

With no real information stored their is nothing to protect except a username and password with no ties to a person or a persons personal information.

 

Again, Welcome to 'Topia!

That's all good until someone uses the same username/password/email that they use for other systems or services. As long as the user practices perfect opsec they're fine, but as we know all too well -- most do not.

 

There are better ways to do something as simple as they are doing without unnecessarily leaking any data. It's a shame there was no response. Has anyone gotten in touch with Ralphsters to address this?

I am new here and have never used anyone but Sporeworks. I was really happy with my experience; so just wanted to say that’s why I voted Sporeworks. I hope to try VIP someday soon. Cheers and Peace

Good valid points Zen!

 

I just never used the name and password thing and manually listed the strains and included it with my cash for my order being sent to a safe address.

 

To my knowledge there has been no contact made to Ralphster for validation of the statements made by Adesa about a 1 day defacing and security notifications about usernames and passwords and see if files had been deleted.

 

I'd like to see some validation made and in the mean time I'd recommend folks write out there order and enclose it with their cash order.

Working all day using sterile techniques I inoculate this way including sterile gloves and a fresh needle for each jar.
I used Spore Works and can say what they sent was as sterile as sterile gets,and free syringe to boot.
I found slightly cheaper venders but went with them because of great reviews which were proven with my results.

I'm not really a complainer , and I really dont like to say negative things about people so I'm not gonna mention any names but I was a member of another forum for 6 months or so and I watched them belittle and talk down and act superior to the new people, I've seen new people get ganged up on and banned for defending themselves I put up with this forum until I ordered $150 worth of spores from that forums main sponsor and I didnt recieve anything , no responses to my emails or phone calls
Anytime I tried to say anything about their sponsor ripping me off they'd lock my thread down so nobody could read ... when finally I directly msg the administrators about their sponsor... they banned me from their site
I'm so glad they did that now or I wouldn't have found this site... you all are so much friendlier and helpful
Thanks

THAT IS SOME BULLSHIT!
I have found that other sites tend to bully and perpetuate more frustration and agnst than a Jr high girls lacrosse locker room. Unfortunately there are also some great information to see and some nice folk caught up in the drama.
welcome and I'm sorry you got scammed.
Thanks ... I will say this much I've got a very reliable vendor that I've been using for 2 years but that one time, just to check it out and I tried this other vendor and all I can really say is that "source of spores" burned me ..... not to mention any names or anything

I used ralphster and spore store when I had ordered things. No issues. I'd use them again need be. Clean plungers, no tell packaging. No complaints.

I've heard doog things about them too. I'd prefer to trade a print from here on though, if I were to try a different strain. As I'm not here to make bank off the ppl who helped hold my hand(no names but yall know who you is! Ty ty!) and that I can't pay to be a gold member yet so I have no business selling jack that won't make the site some dough too.. Server space isn't free.

From here on I will give a print if they make a donation to mycotopia..

I just talked myself into things didn't I? Lmao.

I don't mean to speak for everyone, but my personal experience with Source of Spores was BAD, and since there are more reliable spore vendors out there, I wanted to recommend that folks avoid Source of Spores. 

 

Placed my order, sent my money, never received anything.  I politely reached out to customer service several times, in several ways, via the Contact Us form on their website, via email, and via text and phone, and received zero replies.  I left a review on their site regarding my experience, but bad reviews are not published, so there's no way for others to know that bad experiences happen.  The Better Business Bureau gives them an *F* rating, and I'll be adding my own bad experience to their collection of complaints.

 

TLDR, if you're looking for quality microscopy supplies, don't go with Source of Spores.

I suggest that you check the following thread:

 

https://mycotopia.ne...cuss-here-only/

 

I appreciate the warning, but be sure to read coorsmikey's first post in that thread regarding vendor bashing.  Perhaps he will have something to say more directly here, idk.

 

I have had good luck a couple in the list that you will see there and no bad experiences so far.

 

Take care.

@ Thacan, thanks for the info.  I didn't mean to bash a vendor, just meant to leave a review that others could actually see, but I understand my mistake.  How do I delete a comment?  I don't want to run afoul any rules, my bad.

Not to bash but I used lil shop for years and they always came thru but as soon as I decided to use the "source " u mentioned I got ripped for $150
