When Allie and I joined, I know were were both 12. But please don't purposely post your age, I NEVER did that when I was 12 on here, it was only for the first few months I joined, but my birthday was comming up. If ADMIN says you cannot stay, then come back when your 13. =) Otherwise, I see no problem with you being here.
One post wonder getoveritalready, very original on the name by the way! I see you're running out of login names.LOL! Lets all just please drop this ridiculous post & ignore it. It has run on too long & frankly she doesn't seem to be willing to be more mature about it. Oh & .... Odios'
If they come on here younger than 13 then they shouldn't be treated any different. Didn't this girl say she was breeding her schnoodle?! And go on to say she is mature enough and can handle it and knows all about breeding yet she doesn't know not to breed a schnoodle to a schnoodle,or any mutt for that matter.
SOme kids at eleven ask questions and move on which is fine but I find her seven different posts on the board to be spamming more than anything.I guess being eleven makes her seem like a troll but its really kind of annoying. I dont come on here to baby sit and explain things repetedly just to want to bang my head into a wall. Little kids shouldn't breed and if she insists she is going to i have to say she should not be here.

have seen some pretty funny posts, but this one takes the cake...lol Who cares!
Here's GinaH's rude comment: How do I know they were more mature? BECAUSE they acted more mature the majority of the time. They used proper grammar and their posts were easy to read they were almost always polite and well.... for one they did not come on this forum causing a ruckus with silly posts pouting about how they were only 11 and Boo Hoo ADMIN won't let me stay. _______________________________________________
I beg to differ. Although I like the younger ones that were members here, they were very, very rude at times. In fact, so much so, they ran several members off. The mods let them say or do anything they wanted.
What Syrn said: GinaH - OUCH!! I felt that one and I'm 26
Try and keep in mind she is only 11 and still very much impressionable
Good try, Syrn, but GinaH has no conscious. She's a pretty cold-hearted person. I doubt the fact that this person may be 11 years old effects her at all.
my only comment is that if adult members were run off this forum because of a few interpreted rude posts by a CHILD then maybe they weren't adult enough to be here in the first place.
hear I go getting involved when common sence tells me other wise...but I have to say it..I dont know about what shnoodles has posted so far...so i cant mention that..but she was concerned about age..and sure she should have kept her mouth shut as some under age people did in the past..But she did ask..and admin did answer her..but he prefaced it by dont ask dont tell..so he was saying in my opinion..shut up already and dont draw attention to yourself and maybe no one will notice and hold it aganist her..I have seen one under age poster who was snippy..actually now that i think there was 2..(So...there might be some truth to the new trolls post.) And i didnt care for this person for a while until i found out she was real young...and then my opinion changed. She is intitled to sound silly or say some stuff since she is imature...she is entitled since she has lots of growing yet to do..But in the same token..if you blatently come to a forum and post against the rules of age then you should be able to handle the heat if you get any...since we are not to be coddling you since your underage to begin with. I am not for all out assaults on people but if you get a post such as what Gina posed..if you cant handle it then your too young. Simple as that...But if you can post and act mature and even have opinions about things such a "breeding " say change after gaining knowledge then it has been a good thing...BUt if along the way some one makes a comment that might be a little biting..you have to be able to handle it since your here against the age rules. I hope I made some sence...I dont mind any age person just treat others with respect and if your view on a topic ends up changing...thats fine..no one can hold against you what you learn and decide on your own to do...I wish you luck Snoodles...and I would look into the interpretation of what Admin really meant...cya
getoveritalready! Hmmmmmmm where do I know you from...OH WAIT I REMEMBER NOW... YOU WERE BANNED FROM HERE. LOL It's really quite sad how you have to hide behind an alias and you just can't seem to stay away from the people you hate sooooooo much. YOU ARE PATHETIC!
Awwww, huron. I get what your saying. I think your post makes the most sense out of all of this.
""I beg to differ. Although I like the younger ones that were members here, they were very, very rude at times. In fact, so much so, they ran several members off. The mods let them say or do anything they wanted. ""
How is it that an adult or other member will leave the forum because of a child? Tell me one person that has, because no, and I mean NO ONE, except for ADMIN or the mods could get me to leave the forum with rudness. GinaH didn't say all of the time, she said the MAJORITY of the time. I admit, I have been rude before, but so have many of the adults on this forum as well. So don't go bashing GinaH.
getoveritalready!, why don't you get over it already ?

I don't even want to get into this one, but I will.. This child ( and that's what she is) is looking for some information, from people who love animals. Think about it, some day she might be your vet. She has not done anything really wrong yet. Give her a chance.
I have pretty well stayed out of this topic because I thought that the ADMIN had clarified it and it would be over. I have to say though that some of you are being VERY rude to this kid. I for one as a parent of a 12 year old boy would be quite cross if you spoke to my child this way. And further more this kids honesty is to be commended not condemned. This kid did not have to be honest and we know that most of the grown adults on this board have lied in the past to some degree or another. I am also very proud of this kid. Way to go!!!
As for the supervision issue how do we know a kid is being supervised while on this forum? Though this should not be an issue with this forum as it is about animals some members are quite ignorant and abusive to other members. Considering the focus of this forum we should not have to worry aboou weather or not a kid is here or if they are supervised. I think those of you who have been so nasty are setting a very poor example for this kid. I mean jumping on a child they way you are and then complaining because the kid was honest? How terribly rude. I seriously would have a huge issue with many of you if it was my child you were speaking to. For whatever reason ADMIN has not banned her and neither have the moderators so why are you all beating this to death? Leave the kid alone already huh? Not trying to cause trouble it just seems that there are a few select people who are not happy unless they have a fish in the fryer and the flames on high.
