Cast hate aside we need something here in WC to get a hand on natcon, wether it is Shaun, or who ever, it has to be someone willing to start it, and nobody is seeming to do that, and yet again we are all moaning again, start an association, and the first thing you do is gun people lay down their problems, but nobody seems to want to try and start anything. Atleast Shaun did, and that is why I am willing to work with him, as he is trying to do something and everyone else just moans.

Rodwraylva, I am not trying to be rude here, but what would the credibility of the club be if its head or president or whatever has been accused of such things as in the afore mentioned thread?

I understand what you are saying, but when people should be looking for alterior answers, as I have not seen CRC doing much, I was thinking that the people would then look for someone to set in charge, I am just saying, it needs to be done, so we need to look for a sulltion not another argument. And the cobras being sent to Shaun, as reading throughthe topic, there has been no true verdict reached. Yes he did defend himself by attacking those who accused him, but would you not do that aswell if someone was accusing you of something, I would try to defend myself if it where my name being used...

Rodwraylva, so then start the association, if it is a noble one you will get your support, but you only creating more doubt by arguing a point such as this.
If it hasnt yet, it will!

Your loyalty to this cause is admirable. I redact what I said. I live too far away to be of any help but if there is a petition that needs signed, I'll sign. Just know that I can't attend any meetings.

Firefly, my purpose is to just get our voice out, if through CRC or Shaun, does not matter, but as long as we have a good voice to speak as a community it will work.

Not if Shaun is heading this up, he has his own agenda, he is confrontational and knows exactly how to ruffle everyone's feathers including the authorities. Eventually Cape Nature will start painting us all with the same brush and make herping in the Western Cape near impossible!

Bitis, the meet was just to get in order what is going on, and what we have to do, what is wrong in the system and what we need to attempt to reach, so just informative. And BRB, Shaun has no ties to this, he just took the liberty to get people together, due to having knowledge about Cape Nature and what they do, he just gave insight, and he spesifically said, he does not want to be involved with the actions or has no say in what will happen, and rather just give his guidance. We, who where at the meet, had one thing to get out, and that is that Cape Nature is ruling the reptile trade with fear, and we are sick and tired of it, so we will stand up for what is right and not be governed by misconducted laws thought up by people who do not even know the difference between a legless skink and a snake. If we are to get things done, we need to stand together, as if CRC gets along and the people who where at ;ast nights meet gets along, and they are working against eachother Cape Nature would not give any good results as you cannot have two people battling eachother for the same cause, if we are to get laws into order that are right for all people, then we need to come together and talk with eachother and settle our differences. And I know Shaun gets things stired up, that is true, but if you are going to change something you cannot say yes to everything which they imply you to follow just because you are afraid, and if you take up the courage to adress these problems, you will make enemies because some people like to get benefits from the arrangements that they get with knowing stuff. We need to stand up for what is right, but the moment you stand up for it, you become a threat and will get targeted by the authority governing the laws we follow. (I hope I made sence because I am seriously sounding confusing)
