I would guess that the complaint stems from personal attacks or abusive language that has been the reason threads have been pulled in some occasions. This appears to be inconsistently applied, depending on who is attacking and who is on the receiving end.

I find the fact that the snakes are kept alive for the entertainment of the crowds before ultimately being killed the most offensive part of the roundups. As long as you are within your rights to engage in this pastime I won't criticize, despite my personal views, because I know there are plenty of people who oppose our right to do what we do as hobbyists. I believe the intent of the removal of snakes is what separates us, and ultimately, what causes the hard feelings toward you. I have seen similar arguments against commercial collecting that I find more defensible.

John
