"I only address what is important to the conversation"

That was exactly my point!!
You are determining what you perceive to be important to the conversation and ignoring what the other person has to say - in other words a monologue, not a dialogue.

"this conversation was never about the potency of their venom"

I beg to differ - if you are going to imply that it is "irresponsible" to not inform people that they are venomous, then the venom's potency (or lack of) is very much the point.

"As far as keeping quiet about the facts goes, that will do us more harm than good"

I don't agree - I'm quite happy that Florida doesn't categorize hogs as venomous with regards to licensing, and keeping quiet about it suits me fine.

You seem to be only looking at this thread in very black and white terms, and as a result haven't allowed yourself to hear other points of view. "keeping quiet" doesn't mean lying or deceiving or not ever discussing it with potential customers - many of us just feel discretion is called for when posting online. That is a very reasonable position, but you seem to be overreacting to it and responding quite aggressively.

Anyway I'm done - at this point I'll just agree to disagree.
I'll just say one more thing:
If you find yourself saying "maybe this will come off as rude...." or "maybe I sound like a condescending jerk...."
- a piece of advice - take a deep breath and rewrite it in a way that doesn't.
I have deleted many sentences or posts because I was letting my ego and emotions influence my writing - though not always

Peace
