It's come to my attention that several members of this board are being overly harsh in their replies to people. As I've mentioned before, I can cut you to the quick in a nice way.. or a nasty way. I decide which to use depending on the situation. Most of the time, a nice way will suffice.
Our passionate replies should be focused on those truly deserving of them: Breeders, people who back breeders, animal abusers, Trolls etc.
Our firm but compassionate replies should be saved for those confused, asking advice, or just curious. These people dont deserve to be crucified just because they want our opinion. Give your opinion... but be civilized about it.
I've had to delete a thread because a member was being chastised by one member in a way not deserving. I hated to remove the entire thread but I just didnt have time to remove all the posts necessary to have the thread make sense, while at the same time removing the offender.
I will contact this person and ask them to take a little more time when posting their thoughts on this board.
No.. we're not going soft. We will indeed crucify those deserving, while at the same time being very careful about how much "fluff" is taking place here. Bottom line: Using common sense in your replies will go a long way to help others.
