Very interesting thread. I agree that our society has become too "politically correct".
However, one must also learn a bit of good, old-fashioned tact when dealing with people on-line because the very nature of the medium (the written word) makes it difficult to convey the inflection and tone of the other words, you might upset someone unintentionally, which is a shame, and can very quickly become blown out of all proportion.
We must also learn humility, to be able to deal maturely with constructive criticism.
We're all here because of one thing; a common interest in the world's most fascinating creatures. This binds us as like-minded individuals, and we should all make an effort to treat everyone and their opinions with respect. You don't have to agree.

Just my two cent's worth.

Have a good week-end everyone!

Very interesting stuff. This thread may be the only one were I can state my beliefs and not worry about the context. I feel that hots and Giants should only be kept by people with permits. These permit systems already exist in some states. There are too many giants up for adoption. The bigger the snake the bigger the price. Burms for under a hundred bucks scares me. If some inexperienced keepers hot gets out and kills the neighbour’s child then the whole hobby suffers. I also believe that when ever possible feeding live prey should always be avoided. My beliefs about the pet trade its self could fill an essay.
If only we lived in a perfect world.
