I find it rather baffling that this forum doesn't appear to have a list of plant sellers and/or a thread dedicated to seller reviews. There are a lot of places out there, and I'm sure the members of this place as a whole have experience with most of them. It'd be a shame if a good seller is being overlooked.

Would someone with moderator powers be interested in creating a sticky thread with some sort of master list in the first post that could perhaps be updated with links to posts within the thread that review the various places listed?

We created one in a blog a while ago, but it hasn't been updated in a while and it's not linked to from the forum (at least not in a sticky). Here it is:

I'll try to make a more updated list (or if any other moderator wants to, feel free) and post it in the forum.

Awesome. I think getting the list in a prominent place on the forum would attract a lot more attention, and help give a more rounded and complete perspective on these sites. I was kind of surprised when I looked at the list you linked, as some sites that I've heard at least modestly good things about (like flytraps.com [a carnivorous plant store]) got a 1 out of 5. So pulling in more responses would be helpful.

I was happy to see that even in that modest list, there were a few sites I hadn't heard of. Yay selection! :)

Yes, I need to put a more comprehensive list together and make it more interactive. It would be nice if people could actually rate nurseries and the rating would adjust based on the feedback users give.
