Barry has succinctly asked me not to pursue my old topic any further, I
will abide (w/ the understanding moderating is difficult enough), but
here is a cut from the aborted reply authored earlier:
"I thought about it further; looking at the N&R listing and other
"species maintenance" projects, I pose the question: If we go off into
"the bush" to find "new & rare", are we potentially displacing the fish
currently in the hobby and thence creating our own "future N&R projects"
for some future N&R committee? Basically if you have a number of species
in jeopardy of being lost, why pursue more? "
I thought this subject had some relevance (perhaps that depends on who
brings it up!), but if this is some type of charged (or re-hashed) topic
or something Barry does not want discussed here, if Barry wishes, let
Barry kill this thing, but I can see the relevance (whether I bring
these things up or someone else does)
