Yes, I use to post on AOL message boards, but the only good information there applies to VERY novice herpers, like people who buy a snake on a whim and then don't know what to do when they get home. I stoped posting when a group of "know-it-alls" started posting insulting replies to messages, calling hobbiests who were trying to help "stupid". It took the hosts months to actually remove these posts and they didn't do much to control the issue.

Many of the hosts claim to have everything from medical degrees to years of knowledge, but I saw people who had only kept snakes a few years giving better information. Some of the hosts even kept pe rats and had issues with posts concerning feeding snakes.
