    I don't know if anyone has noticed this or not but the OP seems to have stepped out. I'm not sure if it's due to the repetitive nature of this thread, maybe she's taking some time to reflect on the sudden flood of information, maybe she got tired of feeling attacked or maybe something else. Whatever the case, she seems to have left folks to their own devices. I think I'd wait to see what has transpired on her end before posting more advice/ideas/opinions. Maybe there has been a positive outcome to all of this, maybe not, but the OP has been conspicuously absent now for a couple pages. I'd like to see her response before dragging this out and muddying the waters further.

    One thing I noticed about her is that she only seemed to respond to the short, somewhat insulting comments. She rarely, if at all, seriously addressed the long, factual paragraphs posted by several members. I was especially looking forward to her response for the refutations of her flat-earth claims.

    She hasn't even been gone for 12 hours yet. Perhaps she's just been sleeping or working, doing things in IRL...

  4. This is the last time I will respond as this is getting on a bit and I would be truly stoking the fire if I carry on responding after this. What you saw as negative input was in fact my contributing to answer your question. Therefore my "negativity" wasn't entirely without reason. It just so happened to not be the answer you were after. Any negativity on my part was inspired by genuine concern for the welfare of your pokie and your well being. I admit the horse to water comment was a slight made in jest but again it was inspired by your unwillingness to actually act on the advice given. I have not made any attempt to attack you as a person, you appear to be a very deep thinker and no one can question you love your T's, but use that love to do what is best for your pokie, which is leave it be and enjoy your OW tarantula from a safe distance.

    ^ I am quoting this to supply a reference to back up what I am saying, I have to do it for my uni course so why not here? You have got the insight from others, you do not have to like it but it is what it is.

    Really? I can think of a similar one on another forum I could probably dig up and show you if you're bored. This is really tops?

    Why do people think "open minded" means believing random bullcrap? All it means is being persuadable in the presence of evidence. Honestly, OP is the opposite of open minded.

    Eh, she seemed pretty angry on the last post she made, so I'd bet she's not coming back, which is pretty reasonable. If I made a thread like this and I was treated the way this thread has treated her, I'd quit for sure. Of course, I'm not saying she's right, it's just not a very welcoming environment.

    Well, I know that I for sure have been convinced. I will now be "opening my mind" by leaving all of my enclosures open all of the time so my spiders can socialize with each other and come out to play when they want to. I guess I should also learn to play bass guitar, since it appears that Ts LOVE instruments that create excessive vibrations. It mean, why wouldn't they like something that completely overwhelms their primary sense.

    Also evolution isn't real, the earth is flat, and magnets can heal. Wow, my mind is so open.

    I'm not sure if the OP will come back to chime in but I would be interested to find out what the final decision will be. As to the open mindedness, I don't discount any possibility as long as the preponderance of evidence supports it. I do like to have legitimate references to go with it. I'm not a fan of colorful websites that make outlandish claims supported by fringe groups or some discredited author with no professional background aside from writing books. I prefer something in the peer reviewed realm. If there's anything to be learned from game shows it's that the when the majority of the audience picks the same answer, it's almost always the correct one.

    It's not as long and it's on another forum. I can PM it to you. Not nearly as wacky, but the same kind of idea. I'd imagine that in as long as Tim has been here there has been more nutty stuff to pop up on this big forum than on the other little backwater.

    I suggested to her that striving to have the last say in a discussion where things are deteriorating is rather unhealthy..I suggested to click the unfollow this thread link. I think she's done with this topic, although it's the greatest thread this board has ever seen.

    It's so weird that in every instance of a tarantula escaping their cage, they didn't search out other tarantulas to high-five...

    Just so everyone knows, and @Andrea82, your effort was not wasted. OP is still reading this thread because she PM'd me to insult me in the comfort of my own inbox. ;)
