So naturally after reading this post I decided to dig through your threads and see what the fuss was all about... I figured "wow, somebody must have really gone off on this poor guy for no reason"
but then I read the threads... and I saw people trying to be helpful and then you instantly becoming combative.
So, from an outsiders perspective... Since I have not talked to you before... I'm going to try to offer a few tips:
1) DO NOT USE CAPS LIKE THIS to emphasize on things. It will instantly annoy whoever you are directing it towards.
2) When people try to offer advice... don't snap back at them if it contradicts what you have been told by somebody else (no matter who that person happens to be)
3) An extension of #2. Don't name drop. It is petty and people will not respect you.
Finally... this little quote stood out to me:

Having this attitude on any forum is going to get you into trouble. People here are offering you advice based on the practices that have been established over many years of successfully keeping these frogs. You are coming in with (what appears to us) very little experience and saying things like "that's what the frogs like". The problem is that you have not presented any legitimate evidence that contradicts what we have established as sound practices in the hobby. People here are very accepting of new ideas and practices when there is sound science behind it. However, they will quickly question things that don't appear to be supported by facts.
You have to understand... you are new... until you establish yourself here, people will care more about the safety of your frogs than about you. That's just the way it is. We want the frogs to be safe and happy and then we will be glad to get to know you. So if we come across as harsh it is simply because we want to make sure you make the appropriate adjustments to give the animals the best care possible.
So to finish this off... Please, just take a deep breath and don't be so combative. People are going to tell you that you are doing things wrong. Sometimes they will be right, sometimes they wont. It is a fact of life (and the internet). Nobody is here to put anyone down. We are all here to share our love for the frogs. If you feel as though someone is singling you out for any reason take it up with the moderator staff.
Good luck and happy frogging.
