    I thought this forum was supposed to be somewhere people could come and ask advice and talk about their beloved animals......

    Instead it seems to be a place of people arguing and debating...

    It does happen from time to time im afraid but 99.9% of the time its a great laugh on here. Ive chatted to some great people and have seen some valuble advice being passed around without prior judgement. :):):)

    yeah nici is right.
    don't be put off.
    there is definatly some great advice out there to be given if needed.
    experiences are often better than some "professionals"

    I agree with nici there, some people dont know how to tactfully put their point across and quite often this leaves people feeling like they are being atacked.
    Its a shame as no one should come on here and feel like they're being judged, after all, we dont know these people or how they do things and some of them need help and advice so they can do the right thing by their dog.
    No one should come on here and feel like they should defend themselves.
    There are nice ways of putting points across. :)

    Bullybreeds the problem is that Sallyanne on another thread got on ravens case early on , with her trying to force feed her code of moral ethics as usual :rolleyes: Its not what people say its how they go about saying it! Even if you say the right thing and your facts are right ,if you put your opinions across in that type of manner ,who in gods name will listen to ya! When you have members on a forum like the above mentioned and lets say brainless,surely it cant be good for business;)

    the best thing is not to take no notice of the same old things or it goes on and on and on :) :)

    if you get a post you dont like then just ignore it and read the ones you like
    there are lots of people on that are very friendly and willing to help out as much as they can, and some who try to dictate what you should do,
    these ones just ignore :) :)

    What gets me most is they dictate to people about how many dogs in rescue centres and how they shouldnt be breeding yet they'v all bred dogs themselves!
    I call that two faced.

    I do agree with you but its hard sometimes when you see someone being attacked and judged. I think many of us on here have been dragged into arguments unintentionally.
    But im going to try and take your advice and ignore them. :)

    Every one knows Darren means well and makes sense ! but not everyone feels like tattle tailing to a mod every time she/he reads something they don't like ,if we all did that it wouldn't be a forum now would it!
    I think its good to reply to a post with a reply,but to keep it civil in the your reply! GOD I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT !:D

    you can always be sarcastic in a fun way they tend not to like it lol

    on one posting just told them to stop moaning this site is about being friendly and helping out others
    they didnt answer
    so think there just here to dictate

    anyway hows is every one this morning?
