Maybe this thread is done, but just some last words from me.
I don't feel this debate (if you could call it that) is ridiculous. I posted it in the General forum, so I followed the rules, and I bet a lot of people feel better for venting their shared frustration at people (whether smoking or non).
I know reptiles are great, but it's nice to get off topic once and a while. I have learned lots more about some people in this forum.
Thanks for your replies and opinions!
