    How is one being ignorant because they dislike something? That's his opinion. If he said "all snakes are bad for the enviroment" then that would be an ignorant statement. I think you misunderstand what ignorant means

    No, I think you misunderstand what ignorant means. Saying "EW SNAKESSS" is extremely rude and disrespectful for reptile keepers. Many fear snakes because they know nothing about them, which is why I say he is ignorant.

    If someone says "eww dogs" that makes them ignorant? He didn't say anything that was being ignorant, he's just stating he doesn't like snakes. People have different preferences so they're not gonna like the same thing as you.

    "Ewww snakes" Meaning as I don't like snakes and I do know this.
    Snakes eat mice and cockroaches and I'd understand of why you want a snake as a pet so your snakes can eat them and wont have problem's with them. And I know why you called me "Ignorant" Is because you said "I don't know anything about them" And yes you're right I've don't. I'm not a expert at snakes, all I know is what they eat, and what they look like,I was just referring to that I don't like snakes as pets Its my own opinion. If someone says "Ewww dogs" I would respect that cause other people have different opinions about pets. But that does not make me ignorant.

    My point was that you purposely went out of your way to express to me and everyone else that you dislike snakes in an immature and rude manner.

    I like the fact that we can make a drama from a friendly topic.

    I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. As far as the other comments in this thread let's not derail the thread too much and cause drama. Everyone has their own opinion and although it may differ from your own there is no reason to bash it. I understand that it can be difficult being a reptile keeper as the popular opinion is usually distasteful when it comes to snakes but you can't take it all out on just one person because their opinion differs from yours. I don't think his intention was to put you down. A lot of anger is spreading from this thread on both sides, let's not continue this any longer. Enough has been said already, let's not turn a discussion of pet's turn into a flame war.

    As cool as it is to say how many pets you have, try to make a brand new thread that's updated and active. This thread was from nearly an entire year ago, that's called Necroposting (Bringing the dead posts back to life after a considerable amount of time)
