"You would be better off posting this question on the hybrid forum too. Research both sides of the issue before you decide what to do"

I wasn't aware that there was another valid or logical side to the issue. But of course that never stopped anyone from pseudo-justifying why they continue to do it. If you mean that it seems to attract a different niche group into the hobby, then sure. But nothing beneficial or positive can ever come of it. If getting more people interested in herpetoculture also involves the tainting and compromising of many authentic types that are still out there, then what "good" is that doing for the hobby?. That would be like getting a bunch more people involved in the classic car hobby and have them all bolt-on parts from other cars and attempting to say they are more revered because of it. All they really did was ruin a nice authentic car in the process...

The way I see it, someone really only has two choices,...to help, or to hurt. The people that are only concerned with producing whacky colored/patterned crosses, and really don't care about what those in turn are ever bred with down the line to "whatever" from being unidentifiable and have had their identities lost only help perpetuate the "hurt" aspect. I see so much un-known crap distributed everywhere now days that it is just ridiculous, and it all stems from not caring and/or not knowing what the heck these people even have and are breeding. This is the actual reality of it. Whether some want to acknowledge this though is an entirely different story altogether.
