    Ball Python People on FB

    Anyone else see conflicting opinions in this group on facebook? I pointed some things out and ended up getting blocked. I'm glad to have this forum with some constructive criticism and helpful folks.

    Just yesterday or the day before we heard complaints from another member.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    1.2 Coastal Carpet Pythons
    Mack The Knife, 2013
    Lizzy, 2010
    Etta, 2013
    1.1 Jungle Carpet Pythons
    Esmarelda , 2014
    Sundance, 2012
    0.1 Normal BCI Boa, Butch, age?
    1.0 BCI Boa, Punch, 2005
    0.1 Normal Ball Python, Elvira, 2001
    0.1 Olive (Aussie) Python, Olivia, 2017

    Please excuse the spelling in my posts. Auto-Correct is my worst enema.

    I ditched FB over 5 years ago. And I don't miss it at all.
    I have heard many of our members complaining about the BP groups on FB though (and snake groups in general on FB). There was a thread just a day or two ago about the same thing.
    I heard one guy got blocked cause he put the salt shaker on the right and the pepper on the left....

    Re: Ball Python People on FB

    I don't remember exactly which ball python group on FB I was in but it had thousands of members that liked to pat eachother on the backs about bad advice they all agreed was good instead of listening to people with more than 1 or 2 snakes and 6 months experience.. I got banned for pointing out that by simply looking at the know it all mods page his pictures showed that he has only actually owned snakes maybe 2 years and they were in drafty, no humidity fish tanks lol

    While I don't "do" Facebook at all, I've heard the same complaints about most snake groups on there...'our way or the highway' -unfriendly attitudes.

    You're very much welcome here & feel free to have your own opinions......that's the whole point of sharing experiences IMO, learning from another's viewpoint.

    Even if we pretty much agree on most basics, there ARE alternative ways to do things, & for whatever reason, some snakes may respond better to them; I see
    nothing wrong with options. I'd been on other forums for a while (came here when they died off) & enjoy the positive atmosphere & lack of "drama".

    The ball python FB groups are wild and I'm not in a single one anymore LOL. Definitely a lot of "my way is the only correct way or you're blocked and publicly bashed" mentality.

    Ball Python Enthusiasts initially was chill when it first started 3~4 years ago and only had about 2k members when I joined. Now with 10k+ members, I wouldn't be surprised if it's as bad as the rest.

    I think part of the reason the forum is able to be maintained chill and relatively open-minded is that there's only a few people here lol!
