As the original poster of the thread, I have no problem with people going off topic. It's bound to happen, especially with a rant thread. Besides, it's in the off topic section, where everyone lets loose (:
As it says in the rules, keep in mind what the original poster wants, and I suppose I should've added that some off topic is fine (: We don't want to clog up the forum with threads for no reason... However, we don't want it to get too out of control, and this off-topic session was already over.
And besides, we were being on topic, in a way. We were ranting over the beauty of the snakes posted, but we couldn't get either because of price, size, or because the snake's nature.
I hope I don't offend, but I felt the need to reason with our actions.
