Again, the nail on the head. I could rant for days about the lack of care, because like you said, unfortunately most people go for THEIR convenience, rather than really get to know the animal. Like the racking systems, where snakes are kept in tubs, with a bit of water, and are lucky to have a source of substrate let alone a hide. And they always say the same thing, 'oh most snakes don't move much and are ambush predators, so they're fine in these conditions.' Seems like torture to me. But its the majority way. I hope there is a way to change it and other problematic conveniences. There are days when I feel bad because I can never really give them what they would have had in the wild, but I do my best to make sure they have as natural and stimulating environment as I can give.
