Stan, we love you too much buddy! You could crap all over the chess board and we'd totally let you prance around like a victorious tweet.
Thank you Taki, really I believe we've made the right decision here as this guy simply cannot behave like an adult.
Personally, and this is not stirring or a personal attack on him - but I don't believe that he's a qualified nature conservationist at all, some of the posts and claims he makes don't make sense either. I honestly believe he has some kind of disorder like bipolar syndrome or even schizophrenia, his behavior goes up and down like a yoyo - and doesn't think twice about the things he says. I could be wrong but the signs are there.
Our forum members do not need to be exposed to his type of verbal abuse, nor his malign nature. As a moderator I've actually stood back and let him get away with a lot, simply because others stood up for him, like Amore, and I believed that there was good in him and that he had a lot to contribute.
I was wrong, and I apologize to our members for not taking more action sooner.
Are these available at the moment?
I don't give a hoot anymore Jake/Taki, I'll happily remove this pathetic slander. This is ridiculous man!
Please just ban this guy for good and lets get back to a normal peaceful forum. It's quiet enough these days without users like this chasing our members away.
We don't need all this crappy behavior and we certainly do NOT need Entomology on our forum. He can take his pretty blue spiders and go play somewhere else!
I agree also. Others may have a problem with it and that's completely acceptable, but Entomology can honestly do whatever he wants with his T's, but agree of course that the rudimentary caution to any keepers out there who might want to give it a try is important. Some other less experienced Tiger Whisperer might not be so lucky. (That was just a light joke, ok.)
But mostly, I agree with the what Taki says about behavior, there is no need for sarcasm, insults or snotty remarks from either side. If everyone could just try and get that right, we wouldn't have any of our threads go south and us Mods won't need to come in and start deleting it all. Take a deep breath, rid yourself of emotion or anger, and just engage the conversation and it's topic from an objective perspective. Surely we'd all prefer to read interesting info rather than annoying and boring arguments.
Personally, I think all these pics rock. Yes, I think Ray is a nutcase for risking it, I know I never would, but he obviously feels comfortable enough with his T's and seems to have the experience with his particular specimens to do it. Good for him. If he happens to get bitten, hopefully we'll get a nice photographed bite report as well.
Now, if he was placing one on a child's face or putting someone else at risk, that would be enough reason for people to get emotional...
D - out.
@Taki, thanks. As you can see, this is what I was explaining to you. We really don't need this.
Thanks Entomology, that's exactly the response that was expected.
Someone pulled a fast one on you for sure. That's not an N.chromatus at all. Looks like one of these vagans/albopilosum crosses that I saw a while back.
Sorry about that mate, but I really don't know what that is.
The incessant ebb and flow of pointless arguments by the same instigators who only see it their way is becoming infinitely BORING!
It's like giving two kids a bucket of mud and telling them both in secret that their mud has super powers more powerful than the other kid!
One seriously has to read these posts in search of actual facts or information which is useful, which is normally in the first three posts, thereafter... it's just a mud slinging match.
Gosh I miss the old crowd, at least they argued with bigger words... lol.
Poecilotheria have a very, VERY nasty bite, so to all readers, please heed the warnings - DO respect your Pokies and take extra care when working with them. Each individual Tarantula has a it's own character and behavior, and although some might not mind being handled, others may decide to sink their fangs in to you.
Thanks for the pics, such a beautiful Tarantula.
Thanks Taki - Long time coming.

Get it now? We can either have good solid discussions, or a bunch of stuff edited out.
Entomology, you started a very interesting thread and Ceratogyrus has asked you some good legitimate questions which got derailed because you clearly have issues with him and he's clearly not afraid to question you.
If you are going to make claims and statements, justify them. If you are going to ask people for their opinions as you did on the first page, then accept them whether they are good or bad.
So, I'm unlocking the thread again, lets see if we can keep it civil, shall we?
when admins and moderators are told off by people that "know it all" we tend to want to not give a crap. But we're still around. Also, we don't sommer delete posts because this upsets certain individuals who like things to stay the way they are. This thread is actually pretty calm and doesn't need deleting or editing, people just need to get back to the topic.
Like I said above, people sitting around a braai arguing - will NEVER talk to or treat each other the way they do on a forum. It's just weird that way.
