Man I really need to look at the threads more lol. Ill admit I just skim most times. Anyways I search alot and my question gets answered. When I can't find it I generally just call a more experienced herper like Bry and Lolo they have yet to steer me wrong lol. Thanks for listening

i post here and there when i am on here but i love carpet pythons and not many threads or sales of them on here these days. mostly ball pythons and boas on here these days in threads and such and i'm not into either of them.

The reason that I have not been posting much is I am still fairly new on here. I have talked about the ban that the idiots (sorry I mean our responsible and highly caring politicians) are trying to get through. I will fight this as hard as I can. I have written e-mail, letters and made calls. I even got the guys at work to sigh letters. Anyway that is not for this forum but I will post when I come up with something. I look forward to talking to most of you and getting advice. I have been working with large snakes for 12 years or so but new to retics. Mostly just Redtails and Burmese Pythons. Thanks for everyones time and talk later.

I'm new here, but I'm not new to the hobby and have been a member of many other forums for a long time.

I answer all the questions that I can; even if I only have a small bit of input. I don't really care if it makes me look stupid or unknowledgable. If it means helping another herper in need, even in a small way, I am willing. When I am worried about my reptiles and have a question, I appreciate all the help I can get.

I'm kind of a converted lurker, does that count?
I've been here since the 'old' BOI and for years only visited fauna to buy/sell on the classifieds, research and (just have fun reading crazy threads) on the BOI. Late last year I started to post in the other forums, I've got two or three other sites that I post on semi-regularly, it's a balancing act deciding which forum to post on when I only have limited time (no internet at home, which will be fixed soon!). I am a pic junkie and love to post pics and see pics and some sites seem to have more of that on a regular basis but I do see a lot of good discussions (and pics!) here which has gotten me posting. There's a 'fun' atmosphere here and also a 'group' dynamic that is interesting. I'll admit to being a little hesitant to start posting due to some of that same 'group' dynamic but figured if I'm not a "bad guy", why worry?

Well, I have to be honest here.
I am very much a lurker, and I usually use this website for information that has previously been posted and to browse the classified section. There have been a few times i've considered cancelling my membership here... From the responses i've received and seen from others, it seems to me as if there is a select group of "popular" members who can say anything they want, however they want, whenever they want, to whoever they want...I don't feel comfortable posting my opinions or answering questions I know the answer to because a.) I don't want to be verbally assaulted and b.) even if I did post, my response would be worth a big, stinky pile of dung because i'm not one of those "popular" members. So normally I just stay quiet. Except for right now I guess; and I can imagine I will regret even posting this.

Don't ever regret anything you say as long as you say it from the very depths of your being.
I've seen some of your posts and I don't feel that you would have anything to worry about...you don't seem to be a scammer & you sound intelligent enough. Sometimes a) you need to be strong-willed & thick-skinned; b) you need to be very vocal--it's ok & somewhat therapeutic to have differing opinions; c) you need to consider the source...sometimes it's not the 'popular' people being butt-heads!
Participate more, don't worry about other people coming back at you (you can put people on ignore so you never have to read anything they say!), get to know more people around the forums, and most important...
DON'T CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP!
