The understanding that I have about the moderators of AOL (which I dropped like a bad habit a while back!!!) are actually mostly animal rights activists that want to ban private ownership of herps. This is just what I have been reading, so take it for what it is, second hand talk.
I personally can't stand AOL, and since I got a cable modem, I will never use AOL agian.(NOT just for this reason, either)
"To truly rescue an animal one has to provide long-term care that guarantees the animal's security for its natural life, because rescuing is more than removing an animal from a bad situation. Rescue involves restoring and preserving the animal's dignity for its natural life without stress, and this includes conserving the species as a whole for generations to come." (Brian Werner, founder TMLF / TCWR)
