Definitely wasn't. Made sure of it. Look up Palytoxins and poison symptoms.

dude, i wish it was the FLU. I am the "other user" in this case. I touched it taking it out of the bag(2-3 rocks full of palys and mixed zoas), never thinking about toxins. I even had gloves at home but neglected to use it. I did use my tongs cause i had some dry skin and salt water is mean to dry skin.

Good info..i was aware of the fact they can spray toxins when you try to frag them, which happened to me luckily it wasnt in the eye or mouth, but didnt even think about just being in contact with them which i do all the time..
I used to wear rubber gloves, non-powdered, when first starting out, however for smaller things and fragging it limited dexterity and they came off and water would always go into the gloves anyway..

Yes, I was right with you. I only thought that too but if it goes through any other opening it's still a bad thing.

Is there anyway we can make this a sticky for Noobies?
