Well if thats how you take it. Fortuantly many many other people take it the way I do, and have plenty of enjyable conversation there.

Im on some other forums, not reptile boards but a few Jeep ones, and find that bashing or flameing is a popular passtime.

One in particular has cleened up its act quite well. But it seems to go in cycles, ive ben lerking on the board a long time. And like the Back Street Boys, I know they exist but I wouldnt pay for a tickit.
In fact It got so bad that I got my own Jeep Board running.
I still go to the other board... cuz I like some of the personalitys on it and would definitly like to hook up and ride width em But... once the flameing starts it sorta ruins alot, But if you like reading the equivlant of The Springer Show


But Let me say the admin of this, and the aTa site do a great job of keeping it cool!
The members of this site are just full of information I will sure be here and at aTa for quite a while!
You guys rock

I'm not sure how many Americans you all have met, but I have yet to meet enough arrogant and nationalist ones to consider it a stereotype

By no means am I saying that all Americans are arogant nationalists. Not at all. I've traveled all over the U.S. and have loved it and alot of the people. If this web site were to bash Americans I would be just as offended. Or any other nationality for that reason. Please don't take what I have said as a criticism of all Americans or the country. It is just a critisim of a particular forum and that's all.

I lived in the USA for 3 years. I have not lived there for 10 years, but still keep in touch with and visit the friends I made there. Don't mistake patriotism for ego. Canada has a lot to be proud of, as does the US. The Amercians are just a little more vocal about it, and, as a Canadian who was basically an American for a while, have good reason.

All I know is, I am the coolest American you will ever have the honor to meet....... LOL....... The americans from that site are are probably from some red neck hillbilly towns........LOL....... It is pretty ignorant to bash or make fun of someone because of their nationality........ This site has a big mix of different people and the huge majority are awesome........ Everyone is ok in my book, until you give me a reason not to like you........ Anyway, this site rocks and the Canadians and Americans get along perfectly on here....... So what does that tell you????? Oh and I also love the fact that there are so many HOT Canadian chicks into reptiles.......LOL........ Anyhow, I cant wait to go to Canada and meet up with some of you at the next reptile expo.......

I enjoy a little harmless poking, as long as it is in good fun. When you get to know people, you can make little stabs and it is generally on a defining characteristic, whether you are American, Canadian, short, tall, fat, skinny, yuppy, redneck, Corn keeper, Hot keeper, bad speller, can't hit enter and just use alot of ........'s instead

Of course, I am a short, skinny, redneck American Hotkeeper who looks like Hermie the elf from Rudolph, so I catch alot I get alot of crap about living in the South, and i make fun of the South. As long as it is in good fun, it makes people seem more real rather than just screen names.

There are only 2 problems with living in the South, the heat and the racism. But it is not so much the heat as the humidity and not so much the hate as the stupidity
