Myrtaceae plants completely banned from being sent to WA and TAS

this is probably not a good thing, you can call the DPI if you think you see it, but i am mainly posting so that anyone sending plants to WA or TAS can be extra careful. i guess there is a threat that it will take hold there as well although it may not get there without human help.
you've all seen rust disease, on frangipani for instance. myrte rust starts as roundish red/grey splotches ahich become covered in yellow/orange flecks (the spores).
think about how many iconic and ecologically important species could be in trouble here, be responsible please, it might be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the issue and which species are copping it in your area (it's projected range is from darwin to the vic/nsw border, currently it goes from hervey bay to partway down the nsw coast).
In Occidental theology, the word transcendent is used to mean outside of the world. In the East, it means outside of thought. To imagine that your definitions of your God have anything to do with that ultimate mystery is a form of sheer idolatry from this standpoint. Your God is good enough for you and mine’s good enough for me. A God, from this point of view, is merely a reflex of one’s ability to conceive of God. Since people have various abilities of this sort, they have various powers of apprehending God.
