I agree ed,

I see the majority on this list as accepting the best results they have achieved with what they have to offer.

That's the key there. What they have to offer. I live on 2 acres of field. There are wild mallows and clover and grasses of a bazzillion kinds growing all over it (I don't care for golf course lawns or short cut ones even). So if it were me, I could easily grow a huge section by winter and cut fresh all winter long in my climate, even with an indoor living sulcatta or PACK of sulcatta's. Some people aren't countryboys and don't live in the middle of nowhere, so have to find food sources other than what is growing in their yard. Everyone wants to do the best they can, and will try to do so to the best of their abilities and what is available. Sulcattas seem to affect people like children would, becoming very highly positioned members of the family. Any parenting board is rife with folks arguing over the minutia of what to feed and how to care for their human children, but they are also all just trying to do the best they can do. I suppose sulcattas and children are much alike. Luckily the human kids grow up in 18 years and head out on their own. The sulcattas will be around when the great great grandkids are 18 years.
