Yeah, I've come across that type of thing too. I once mentioned that I had a betta in a heated 1.5g and got the impression from the replies that they thought anything under 5 gallons was as good as a dirty cup. I was also told that anything under 10 gallons couldn't be cycled, which I personally know is completely false. Other than that, I haven't really had much trouble with the members there.
I once posted on a forum for vivariums and pet frogs and suddenly had about 10 rude people on my back for using soil and having large-leafed plants. I was also told that I would need to do daily 100% water changes for my 1.5g betta tank (which is inside the vivarium), even if it was filtered and cycled. I was basically told that I needed to immediately tear apart my vivarium and start completely fresh. Some forums end up having really rude, unhelpful members...fortunately, I haven't come across that on this forum.
