I think the title is misleading... as stupid and ignorant are two entirely different things... I concur with ttb, most people are just ignorant. There are those few who will do whatever they want, but for the most part, if people are taught "You need to do X because of Y" vice "You do X because if you don't, then you are just stupid", more people will listen.
I was in the same boat as the ignorant before finding this forum. This was only after I had bought a 1.5g and three goldfish all in the same day... needless to say the fish didn't last long. I know better now and will never make that same mistake.
