Default Facebook vs. the Boards

I have a serious question, gang. Do any of you know any of the clowns on an FB group called "Tegu-Phile?" I was actually banned for posting these:

Never said I recommended it, only asked questions--was flamed into oblivion. My friend Chris said it well: One guy with experience disapproved, and the rest of the "pitchforkers" piled on... Oh well, who cares... My real question is this; For husbandry related questions and topics, aren't these boards actually better for serious discussion than Facebook? How is FB in any way conducive to in-depth discussion of anything? I don't dislike it, I am on it. But it is simply not the place for serious exchange.

(I realize now that these people do not know me, never been to my home to see my set ups, have not heard of me, etc. That is all fine. But I am no troll, and you guys here know that.)

Don`t sweat dude, Facebook is a joke. I just got into it a few months ago and I`m already sorry I did. Nothing but politics and gossip.
What was the issue with the photos?

Having known you as long as I have I completely trust any help you provide. Thousands of people don`t know you on Facebook but we know you here.

I really dislike Facebook groups. They all seem to be 90% of people who insist something can be done only one way, their way. It's also full of misinformation 90% of the time. I'm on a few groups, but really prefer the boards.

I just use Facebook for zynga poker; I much prefer the boards for herpetological care and information.

Definitely not. I've seen people absolutely ripped apart for doing something I'd consider harmless, then a "regular" post the same thing and get applause. I don't post on them, usually just read.

I completely agree. I've been joining various dart related groups on FB lately and still think ''why isn't all this in one place on a forum?'' It would be nice to see the forums (all of them, not just DB) start getting heavier traffic. I'm not a big fan of FB to begin with though.

Now excuse me, I'm gonna go seeif anything new has been posted in any Facebook groups...
