I think a hybrid classifieds would have been the most important thing they could have added. IMHO alot more important than giving mexicana and mountain kings their own sections.

I see two reasons. I always get kinda ticked off when I see alterna x thayeri, alterna x ruthveni, etc. posted in the alterna section, so there's one reason.

The second reason is actually the most important, which is it would give hybrids more respect. Although I don't care for them myself, I respect others right to work with them. Giving them their own section would lend them respect, making it more likely that people would "admit" they were hybrids. I have always thought the best way to "control" hybrids was to simply acknowledge that many people have an intrest in them and not try to stigmatize them. "Hating" on hybrids just makes people more likely to try to pass them off as pure.

Anyways, those are just my thoughts and I have never really cared enough to try and press kingsnake into doing anything about it.
