    Hi Bratt, Yes I wonder about that myself sometimes, but after a while you get a feel for who is honest and who is stretching the truth. It’s not like person-to-person contact were you could read someone’s body language to detect a lie. The Internet provides anonymity for people to be dishonest and make up stories that appeals to them. I would think some create of way of life they wish they could have and some create a personality to escape personal problems. But there are many, many honest and caring people here.
    When posting or replying to a thread just be yourself. If you feel uneasy about the poster then just ignore them. Take Care, Kathy

    And why should we believe you're painting? How do we know you're not actually flipping burgers and using the boss' laptop to sneak online and pretend to be a married guy who paints the interior all the time?

    HOW DO WE KNOW you're not actually a bored Laplander using Google translators to poke fun at us? :yeeha:

    If you were really a homesteader, you would have already started complaining about septic --- or bugs or critters --- or building codes!!!

    Fess up!! :yeeha: Who are you really???

    Kathy, my GiantFeeders website sells feeders (prey animals)to reptile keepers. Those are water monitors owned by a very good customer who sent me his photos. Feeding photos are sought after by my customers. It is a niche thing. I know they may seem gross to others and I apologize. The chickens are killed with CO2 and frozen before being sold. I don't sell live feeder animals. In actuality I've removed a whole photo album of feeding reptiles due to space and have a few that are about to go up again.

    No, I don't wonder about it,..... I expect it.

    Over time you can begin to tell who is consistant, and who isn't.

    I am real, ....really, I am, there are photo's.....
    I saw them,......even in the magazine and on the web too!

    Or did I??????? :confused: :eek: :haha: :haha: :haha: ;)

    Thanks Kathy, I didn't word it very well, but some things -especially when it comes to parents- upset me. I will be more gentle.
