What is logical and valid is a matter of opinion.

Every one has the right to their own.

Don't bash every hybrid, or hybrid producer. Mules are extremly useful and responsible hybrid producers who properly lable their animals are not the problem. If people who produce hybrids keep them all, or they just end up as a pet never to breed then you don't have to worry about them ever "poluting" other snakes.

One could point out that you "purists" could take snakes down the same path as many dog breeds that suffer many genetic falts in "pure breds".

I have had 2 "pure" snakes suffer cancer and are now gone. Instances of cancer are higher in inbred populations like you see in white lab mice. I had a white lab mouse as a pet and she developed cancer too.

There is always another side to everything. Keep an open mind.
