I observed this forum & many others before signing up to this one. It seemed to have the nicest members. Lateley this place has turned into a soap opera. I log into this forum to get away from the crap at home and work. We are running off potential new members and possibly some old ones. This is not the place for name calling, racial slurs, nit picking, etc. This should be a place full of positive people where we can all have a nice civil conversation and educate each other. I really like everyone on this forum even though SOME of you have not responded to my posts. I hope that the ones who have enjoyed my company and input. Please stop all of this crap and turn this place back into what is was before. I would hate to have to go to another forum.
Groomer one thing I have noticed is this...That about once a month the fighting and bickering get started. It usually starts when a "new" member comes and says things they know will rile people up. After about a week the fun wears off and they move on. Then a few weeks later, after peace and quiet, it starts again. I have learned that thats just the way public forums are.
I am new here, and I was a "guest" for a very long time before I had the "guts" to join this forum, simply because everyone sounded so much more educated on dogs, breeding, etc. There are so many people here with totally different ways of looking at the same situation; the more brainstorming and help one can get with a problem, the better. We have been distracted by one individual and I think now we are realizing how detrimental this can be to the forum as a whole. Let's all stick together on this one.
I am new to this forum. My friends have always told me about forums. They say forums are a great place to meet friends and share ideas. Many of my friends are addicted to forums and chat rooms. I stumbled upon this forum while googling maltipoo. I am a first time dog mom *proudly grins*. After reading several topics and responses, I was somewhat disappointed. Some people here are not very nice. I know this is not real life but does that mean that real life rules do not apply such as: "Do unto others as you would have them do to you" Luke 6:31 What a shame. We would all be much happier if we relaxed a bit and thought about our responses before we hit send (so to speak).
