    I am beginning to understand why some newbies to the forum can be put off, and see some forum members as belonging to 'cliques'.

    The Cesar Milan thread is indicative of this and I fear that it is danger of being closed. Perhaps some of you do not realise how harsh some comments are coming across to those people who are in favour of CM methods.

    Just because our beliefs differ from others, does not give the right to be offensive. Let us remember that we are all grown ups (I think :D) and everyone is entitled to their opinion ;):)

    Not at all. Its water off a ducks back with me :D

    But if you look through that thread, it doesn't take rocket science to see what I mean.

    I'll have to re read some of it later and see then i know it did get abit headed and i know we have made it in to a joke..But if i have been harsh i would have liked to know so i could have looked and said sorry if needed! :blushing:

    I know i did have a tiff on there but that was soon sorted! :)

    I thought the latter part of the thread, could be toned down just a little ;):)

    Didn't realise it would cause people so much apoplexy over one man :D

    The CM Thread is one that members will always "debate" about. I do not see any "cliques" in that thread. Yes there is a group of members for and a group of members against but that does not make a clique imo.

    I see no reason why it should be closed

    I didn't realise there were any cliques, unless I've missed something major.

    i havnt really noticed any cliques either.

    i actually thought the CM thread was going quite nicely, a little heated at times but when you get off the thread its forgotten. no grudges held as everyone is entiltled to believe in what they want. If i am one of those who posted comments hat people ave found harsh i appologise and i never meant any offence, if i do in future you only have to tell me and i will appologise. It doesnt help when typing either as its hard to read emptions which is why i try to take whatever is said in my stride.

    I read through it and found it quite funny at times...I didnt get involved because I neither like or dislike the guy. Haven't watched enough of his stuff to comment on him!

    I do think though that a lot of people are taking other members comments to heart and also the wrong way. It is a discussion after all and just as in real life not everyone is going to agree x
