LOL before anything else starts would you please delete this. However I will not go without saying the following: Mister Sinister, all I wanted was to find out a little bit of info before I spent some money. What in the world is wrong with that. Most of the people who posted on this thread do not even know what happened, so they shouldn't be accusing me of anything or making judgements. Stupid remarks? I do not think so, I was defending myself would be more like it. And it really shows how much you know. It is not coming back? It was just added take a look at the main page or the forum. I do not know you and I do not think it is fair that you call me a "simpleton" or get a bad impression on myself due to this thread. If you would notice, I was stating a healthy opinion that the laws were not fair, then stated I would donate money to the site. What did I do wrong, please let me know. Then I get accused by Linds of slander. I WAS JUST TRYING TO GET OPINIONS. I didn't know it would cause any harm, I wasn't thinking when I typed it. I then tried to explain myself. And I thought I did. Shane Tesser then posted about the workload on ssnakess. Again I offered to help. I then reflected on Beths post, and how what she was saying was wrong. If you may sinister, explain how they are stupid. I would like to say much much more but I wish to end this war. Thank you very much. However, "stupid remarks" "simpletons" I think you need to get your facts straight. I have done nothing worth being kicked. You do not even know what happened. I understand what your trying to do, defend the minority, but please again before you make rude comments to myself or anyone else get your facts straight please.

Arrow interesting

You want others to treat you with respect yet you say things like this?

I am not going to write another word on this and I hope it gets closed soon.
Notice the end where you say you're not going to write another word on this, yet you're still posting. Put a sock in it already, leave it alone and stop flooding the forum.

I haven't been a member here as long as some of you, but from what i have seen, this is a very tight knit community, everyone seems to work very hard to make it all work. I dont personally know Jeff, or anyone else on this site for that matter, but everyone seems to treat everyone very well with a few exceptions, which will happen no matter where you go. Maybe instead of looking for arguments you could put more of your time here in a more positive manner "TheGino".. I leave with your wonderful words, just incase you decide to say you weren't looking for an argument.

Hehe I am glad there are people like you so I can have things to argue about. A good old argue is healthy now and then, gets the mind thinking.

well

I am not sure who "i mean REALLY makes me mad when people who dont support try and tell me how it should be run" was for but, I wasn't trying to tell you that things weren't going right myself...

but I read about those viruses and wanted to share my boyfriends help as he takes care of your (Ontario) internet connection and how they run through servers I thought he might know how to stop you from getting a virus again on your website.

Although I am sure you posted that about the bantering. Frankly if people want a CBOI then they can make it on their own site. That's my opinion.

Marisa, that was no way intended towards you... It was intended for the ones who are never happy with anything... They complain about the CBOI then when its removed they complain and then i reinstate it with a few differant features to keep me out of court and the site alive and they still argue and complain. LOL!!

As for the viruses. Shane was reffering to my home computer which i should have had better protection on but got fried from an irate member who was banned from the forums in its early stages of life. The server it self has more protection then Mr. Bush itself and it is a apache box! Althought if i get stuck with some of this darn unix stuff i will be sure to email you so dont be surprised if i do!

OK Im new here so please exscuse me if I ask what a "CBOI" ?

Also I Moderate a carnivorous plant forum that goes thru the same thing all the time. There are alot of legalities involved not to mention its just not niceeto step on toes in public and who is to say if the person doing the slandering is telling the "whole" story sometimes people get the trades messed up thinking they will be recieving something at a certain time and when the weather like now doesnt permit it they get thier panties all in a bunch.

So basically what we suggest if somebody is dealing with somebody they never have is just that they ask about the person/business on the forums and ask that all replies be done in private via the messenger service heck I'll even lock the subject to make sure nobody responds to the thread.

No your not alone at all.
unfortuantely
It has gotten to the point where mods have been asigned to separate forums to watch over so that the whole forum is basically policed at all times, which sounds harsh until you think about it families, kids doing class projects, teachers and the like are comming to the site for information and if there are harsh fights and offensive use of language going on publicly there is a good chance that people will turn away from the site and go somewhere else because of the things going on.

look, the reason for the CBOI to be removed and then controled was for this reason. If it were to be used solely based on the facts and left at that, then it would work. But as like 'other' sites, it turns into a popularity contest like in a school yard. It doesn't work. Even the worst of breeders will have thier followers.
Look, all that Jeff is saying is he has worked damn hard to keep this a 'safe' place to visit without the politics like 'other' sites, and Clown is on the nose with that one. The 'other' sites have lost many followers because of it's troubles.
If you are looking to buy something from someone then you use your better judgement. It's your responsibility to make sure you don't get 'taken'. The seller should be willing to show you pics or send any needed information you request. If someone that doesn't seem familiar email someone that would know, or for that fact several people. Everyone is going to have an opinion whether it be truthful or not, and on an open forum like this one, it is more than likely that it will be untruthful to mind the feelings of others.

Jeff, Laurryn, Linds, Jason H, Dom and Shane (and others) you guys are doing a great job. On behalf of the majority of the ssnakess communitty ignore the fools that have nothing better to do then stir the pot.

Your efforts are noticed by the keepers that are in this hobby for the long haul. I am confident your effort will be supported Jeff through the many different growth pains that all projects endure in the first few years. This site has come along way it has truthfully become the central point compared to most other reptile related sites online. Most of the regular providers (sorry not all, some have hidden agendas) are honest and knowledgable keepers that are willing to offer their experiences. Their input is always great to read and archive for future support.

Keep up the great work and never forget to smile.

Grant Crossman
