In Reply to: Moods, misunderstandings, sharing info........... posted by gexfiles on November 08, 2002 at 14:32:47:
:(sorry for the P. m. grandis pic, I couldn't help but share it, she is too cute and I wanted to lighten the mood a bit :)
:As the top of the forum states, I am generalizing of course, this forum is about sharing info. Sometimes, written words can be misinterpreted, taken personally, etc. Whether that is the writer's intention may not be 100% known, but we have to remain objective and keep moving and give people the best info possible.
:Many of you don't know me (Trace) from a hole in the ground, but some of you do. I was a regular advisor/frequenter of the leopard gecko forum for over 3 years. I have owned R. ciliatus for almost 2 years now and studied them for longer. I do not post much advise here for several reasons:
:1. Lack of time
:2. High stress and busy schedule
:3. My high level of emotion in my posts often get me in trouble
:4. Experts IMO like Allan Repashy and Garrick Demeyer have been seen posting here, they can give solid advise due to years of husbandry and I will only reply on things I feel confident on replying to, something many others should also consider when posting. People could possibly take your advice as gold....
:The #2&3 reason lead to conflicts and the whole mineral oil episode I feel was sort of due to my 'emotional' post. Honestly, I do feel my concerns are valid, however, I could have used a different approach.
:What's my point? Um, well I guess what I am trying to say is, I will save my emotions to myself and stick to solid advice. I hope to frequent a bit more often.
:PS: If anyone is wondering, Roman, Baby, Bull, Butterfly, Muppet, Glyn, Matisse and Esmie (shown) are all doing well after the move from Ontario to New Jersey. :)
