Re: NFC: RE: NFC "sanctions" and our detractors...

I'm very sorry I said this as I could have made my point without it.  I 
was kind of hoping that those who knew what I meant would nod 
their heads knowingly and keep it to themselves, so that newer 
members wouldn't have to witness the carnage.  I should have 
known better.  You're right Jay, I certainly cannot claim that any 
organisation has taken a position on the NFC's sanctioned sale of 
wild-caught natives.
