[So to extrapolate from your own quote here: "meaning if you like to cross species you may be that much more likely to cross localities" apparently you yourself are on an equal footing with hybridizers who have just as likely a propensity as yourself to cross localities?]

I think the only one feeling the need to extrapolate from my remarks is you.

"It was your choice to purchase these 'unsubstantiated' localities. As discussed earlier, not everyone necessarily requires the proof that others do and are content to take someone's word for the most part. Is it nice to have a family tree? Sure, but it is not the end all be all of locality breeding. Those animals might be just fine for someone else who might trust those individuals, correct? I believe that you are just attempting to make a point about how shameful individuals not on the current list should feel about themselves and implying that their animals are thus worthless."

I chose to acquire those "locality" snakes under a more relaxed standard. Now, I choose to give those snakes away that don't meet the necessary subtantiation. Nothing more, nothing less.

ÔÇťAgain, few are as pure as you so it is a difficult standard to live up to"

It is a very difficult standard to live up to, but there are TWELVE other breeders on the list and I have no doubt more breeders will be added.

"Sure, I'd like to add another possible standard myself: The Flying Spaghetti Monster. Or maybe the objective collapse theory as it differs from the Copenhagen interpretation. LOL."

Yeah, I'll be sure to add those standards to the list, per Glenn Fankhauser, LOL.
