Has anyone ever heard of or seen one of these? I searched Rick West's site and the photo or the Aphonopelma iodius looks EXACTLY like the mystery Texas Aphonopelma I picked up in Vegas.
I didn't realize I was being mean to someone specifically. Clarify for me.
I like seing old threads as well. As for the Aphonopelma iodius I sold a baby to a friend of mine about 5 years ago and it's still a sling.What i found incredible to believe isn't the fact that this is a "dead" or "necro" thread something (i actually enjoy certain old threads btw) but that no one, until CaseyK, answered in 13 years, ah ah.
It's not one of the Theraphosidae that you see in the market too much IMO. But for the wrong reasons... seems a no 'appeal' to the public one ;-/I like seing old threads as well. As for the Aphonopelma iodius I sold a baby to a friend of mine about 5 years ago and it's still a sling.
Good night Rick! Blah! Blah! Quit picking on us brown people we have feelings.
You know, Rick, it's sad but you're absolutely right. A friend of mine (not mentioning names) told me yesterday that "AB" is toxic. I asked what he meant. It's the whole having to pay or post something informational that set it off (but I do understand the need for money due to time and work that mods put into this and I will agree that we need more information posted).....my thought on AB being toxic was something completely different. It didn't have anything to do with money or having to post info.....those are MISDEMEANOR and information is positive. What makes AB toxic are the people here that are turning the hobby into something it shouldn't be....being egotistical because you know more than someone else or downing someone that wants a poecie as their first T...."scorning" is more like it. I encourage anyone that WANTS to start the hobby. It doesn't matter WHAT T they start with because in the long run that will be the person that breeds to keep them going....or grow in knowledge and be like Rick West ....people like him are the foundation of this.....back when being "judgemental" didn't exist in this hobby. Do you ever remember the first post you read, or the first website or blog you read that had something to do with T's....and it was in that that you thought they were "cool" and you just had to have one? That's what I'm talking about. That's what this hobby is founded on. Sorry....didn't mean to get all philosophical but it's just my opinion.......a lot of people I know aren't on AB anymore due to that EXACT reason.People talk about my manners. One way to chase members off is to make sarcastic comments when they add to an old thread. Good plan: Let's try to make them look dumb! Not like every new thread is a bell ringer.
