    If nobody slapped me over the head calling me negligent, which I very much was, I wouldn't have asked on this forum. I know the general vibe of the forums when it comes to questions. People don't sugarcoat things, because the top priority is the snake. I love that, because she's my top priority too. My title was poor and I don't blame her at all for behaving like a snake, but it doesn't come off that way and Bogertophis was right to call me out on that. Generally speaking, if Bogertophis, someone who's been around snakes longer than I've been alive, says I'm being negligent than I'm being negligent.
    I want to,be the best snake owner I can be. Dancing around the issue to spare feelings doesn't help that.

    As for the talking like a child.... I am a minor. It was appropriate.

    ApeApocalypse:

    FYI- I was delighted you reacted as you did- in the spirit my post was intended. You're gaining maturity.

    The reason I answered the way I did was partly your tongue-in-cheek thread title. It's also the reason I use emojis like this >

    I've posted on forums for a long time, & had posts criticized for too much sugar-coating also...I can't please everybody, but I do try to help.
    It would have been much easier just to say LOL

    if you are going to talk to people like that, then just know that she is right. just because the post wasn't helpful to YOU doesn't mean it will never be useful to anyone.

    Looks like I'll be doing some weekend construction
    As mentioned, nothing fancy - just a standard drill bit. It was really easy.
