OK, so this is weird but someone has decided to impersonate me.  You know you're famous when... What a laugh (sort of)!  To set the record straight...

The impersonator has posted themselves, username AntarcticaAma, on the site IAmA/reddit (I don't really know what these things are, a friend of mine just sent me the link because he works with me and knows that this isn't my doing)... and this person has put themselves out there saying they run the greenhouse at the South Pole and is answering questions about the station, life here, etc-- but this person is a FRAUD. 

Their answers are incorrect, incomplete, misleading, and they don't even know how to spell or even spell the contractor's name that is their supposed employer.  So those of you that have commented on reddit that the person's proof seems false... well, my blog is real-- though not a co.uk site-- and AntarcticaAma isn't the person that's actually here running the greenhouse.

If you read this and actually do have questions about life here, the greenhouse, etc, and want real answers, please ask and I'll do my best to respond... since just recently I learned how to find the 'reply' function to answer peoples' comments.

So, happy fraud-busting and may we all find a lesson somewhere in here about believing (or not) what you see, read, hear about, etc...

:) jos

And PS, if anyone knows how to post this info on IAmA or reddit so AntarcticaAma can be exposed for a fraud (and so I can dissociate myself from their answers/representations of life here) please let me know!  Thanks!
