Re: What happened to discussion/debate in the reptile community?
The overwhelming amount of regurgitated "information" by relative newbies on the internet drives me insane. It's not just reptiles either. Any hobby you get into, it's the same. I think people just want to be experts. The easiest way to become an "expert" is to memorize a bunch of crap on the internet (right or wrong) and repeat it back to others.
