It is also apparent that what you find offensive is a line of behaviour, not the single act of selling frogs.So I think Unethical Wildlife Dealer is a good place to start, it may not be cool sounding like Flipper, but does cover a line of behaviour the hobby finds offensive.
Bill, couple quick questions.
Where do the breeders' hobby responsibility and/or ethical tugs start when approached by re-sellers who are known to continually do destructive works in the hobby?
" I have sold him frogs before, and as far as my transactions with him they were very good, no problem pre paying with him."
The above statement is a testament to dealing with said re-seller, and it appears the only thing you chose to note was that he paid you promptly.
I'll note this , Taron will sell to anybody with cash. Business ethics OK? Sure, it's the gold old US of A. Hobby ethics, he sucks the big 'n . You choose to sell to a re-seller who has continually run into issues telling the truth. You have given no indication at all you'll do anything other than repeat this, I'm sure, as long as he has " no problem pre paying ".
I guess I don't get it . But I sure would like to.
