You are correct, but I have noticed another type of snobbery, if you will, in the invert world. The thing with inverts is that the prices never get THAT high and space and care requirements are rarely an issue. The result is that you end up with something of a "he with the most inverts wins" mentality among some. I have a fair number, so I am not a victim of this, but John (Kugellager on AP) had very few scorpions up until this point. Still knew twice that of almost any other board member, but others (no names) thought that they were the cat's meow because they had bought more inverts over the years.
