You have a valid point. I want to see publications that use our data be completed by people who are actively participating in the ENTS organization. I don't think we should be simply a data source for a brief citation - an equivalent of a pat on the head like we are a pet dog. There is data that people have personally collected through sweat and hard work that warrants being held tight until the right circumstances. But on the other hand there is some information that we don't really need to hold that tight. There is material where we would benefit from a wider distribution. I wish I could cite a specific example.... I will think about the differences between the two and post again later.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
