Re: [Killietalk] KCC (wasRe: forums vs killietalk) now Diapteron Study group
"I see no problem with formation of a "Diapteron Study Group" for folks
interested in those vicious little cold-water fish. ;-) They just don't
now, and never have really fit the purpose or methods of KCC."
That is a more sensible model and one that seems to be popular in other
organizations around the world.
"I agree that the communications about KCC have been very sparse and
confusing, but don't blame the AKA BOT for that. That has not been their
Wright, I have to let you know that I personally have been trying to work
through the KCC Coordinator since the inception of the Diapteron KCC.
Nothing has happened.. I cannot begin to tell you the amount of e-mails that
have gone unanswered. Perhaps you can suggest who we can blame. I am open to
suggestions. I never blamed the BOT but certainly something should be done.
"The BOT has graciously stepped in to provide financial support for the
increased shipping costs in doing swaps, but, otherwise, KCC is a fairly
independent program. [That support has, tho, allowed the KCC to be
active all over the world, and not just in the US. Many KCC breeders are
not AKA members, for example.]"
I disagree with the use of non AKA members to maintain stock or breed stock
for an SMP program that makes no sense at all. I simply have not the time to
get into the zillion reasons why I disapprove of this. I am sure you can
deduce what most of them will be.
"This method of operating has kept KCC communications 90% internal, which
may explain why nobody ever knows what they are up to. :-)"
That has no logic. The reason I joined the AKA was for such activities. We
the membership ought to know what these programs are doing. I would think
one would be proud of their accomplishments and progress with a given group
of fish. Why would you not want to report what is being done? Or perhaps it
is because nothing is being done? No wonder YEARS go by and still we have
an abandoned Diapteron KCC. Or call it a Diapteron Study Group if it makes
you feel better Wright watch out or I may sic my killer Diapterons on you.
Do you watch Seinfeld? Remember the episode about the Anti Dentite? Jerry
was accused of being a dentist hater well maybe your just a antiDiap Wright.
LOl sleep tight
