I don't think anyone disagrees with the ACTUAL assessment of the fish when posted in this specific section. I think people post here because they WANT to get the honest and truthful opinion from those with more knowledge and if lucky, someone of BB's caliber. It's just that it doesn't sit well when you are told "why is this even here, etc., etc" (the rest of the 90% of the reply given).
How are budding breeders or people who are considering of being a breeder get the help of more experienced ones if they are basically told - get out of here.
I enjoy BB's assessments, especially on Facebook. I first take a look at the betta she chose, do an assessment myself and compare notes to see how close (mostly, how wrong I was) when I start reading her critique. I WANT to learn from her and probably everyone else who goes to this section.
Just throwing out an idea - what if a new section was created - BETTA CRITIQUES or something like that. People can post and hopefully the breeders can browse as well when they have time and give their honest input. This way, like was mentioned earlier, the SHOW section can remain just that. =)
Anyways, peace everyone and have a SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
