I agree. Most people maybe start out with a mass produced snake; their criteria may have as much to do with their source being convieniently located as it does with species selection. If they become serious about breeding they want to have a choice.

The notion that purity is impossible or useless is a fairly recent phenomena that popped up on these forums a few years ago in response to accusatory and overzealous purists. It's not a real scientific viewpoint, in fact science seems to be going the opposite direction by creating even more species and elevating subspecies to species.

I think the audience of this forum is either more advanced than the average Joe Blow, or wants to be, that's why they're here. As such I think it's appropriate to delve into issues like this. I would not walk up to someone in Petco and confront them about the purity of the snake they are about to buy. Picturing that is good for a laugh! But here is just the place to share opinions about advanced issues but leave criticisms at home.
