That way the elite breeder's group with just a little valuable time to spare from their own forums won't be bothered!
I disagree with limiting access to this forum. I am not a breeder - but I'm interested in all this, and I'm learning. If I am prohibited from posting here, then I won't be able to ask questions. The same applies to others who want to learn. And what about people who want to become involved with showing? If they're denied access to this forum, they'd lose out on a valuable source of information!
I'm new to both Bettas and this forum - but I very much appreciate that people, on ALL the forums of this site, have taken the time to answer my naive questions.
A lot of people in this world might simply have said, "Go figure it out on your own." But that hasn't happened here - in ANY forum on this site. Whether my questions were about bloating, tail biting, genetics or breeding, I've always received well-thought-out, quality answers.
I do understand why access to the Classifieds forum requires 100+ posts. But I would hate to see access to other forums limited to a particular group of people.
