This is a bit off topic, but I really want to say a few things. It is extremely hard to convey feelings, points, ideas, etc. via e-mail and/or posts since there are so many variables involved. For example, when I am having a bad day, my e-mails or posts tend to be short, without detailed explanations. Some may perceive the replies as apathetic or, simply, rude. When I feel strongly about something, I tend to put the blinders on and disregard opposing views.
Everyone on this forum has a completely different background (demographic, skill level, etc.), but we all share a love for geckos (Rhacodactylus in this case). Things would be different if we had one big Rhac. party line, but our phone bills would be huge.
"You're an idiot!" posts have become far too common on the forums, and I've made my share of highly opinionated replies. I will make a genuine effort to respect the opinions of others and offer advice in a kind manner. So many people have e-mailed me saying that they are afraid to post on this and others forums due to the increasing negativity. I am going to make an effort, and I hope all of you guys will as well.
I want to publicly apologize to Allen Repashy for our little "dispute" a few weeks ago. He has always been kind to me, and I deeply respect his views.
