I honestly, am done here. No breaks. No more. I am SO tired of defending myself on this forum. I am a member of MANY forums and this has to be the rudest one. There are ALOT of really nice people on here and I am going to miss talking to them. However, the "bad eggs" on this board have ruined it for me. I feel on the defensive everytime I post. I find myself getting mad on a pet forum! It is ridiculous. I do not have this much stress in my daily life. I hope that this board cleans up and can someday be the friendly place it was when I first got here.
To all of you that actually understood me, and that took the time to get to know me, I will miss you and your pets. To the others, I hope that you will look deeply at how you are treating people. Cyber space or not, rude is STILL rude.
For all newbies, watch what you say, there are vultures around waiting to take on the next victim.
For me, I have had enough, I have other forums that I get much better respect and I know I am not the only person that has left here and I know I will not be the last. I hope that you all look and realize that you are chasing away the public. How many new people have come on here and said that they have read for a YEAR or more but were to AFRAID to post. THAT is sad. I hope all of the people that are to afraid to post anything will listen to me when I say - Find Another Forum! You will be amazed at how your stress level will go down.
So, have fun everyone. Don't miss me too much. I am sorry you will not see anymore pictures of my animals. At least not on this site.
Mods, at the end of today, will you delete my user name please? I would like to wait until the end of the day, so I can finish my last day.
Don't worry. Everything always works itself out eventually. I just find myself defending myself more often then not on here and I did that enough growing up. I am an adult now, I do NOT need it. So, while I really do appreciate everyones advice, I will just have to get it elsewhere or figure it out on my own.
KATZ !! WHAT ARE YOU DOING ! dont let anyone drive you away. the one that was giving you the most crap , turned out to be none other than scarydog , probably under a few other names too. she is a troll. not worth the air you breathe. please reconsider. all of us have been under fire at one time or another. i just blow it off. your household and your life is just that...YOURS ! if someone is making you feel bad, blow them off and keep on trucking. but there are several good people here that do enjoy your posts and your pets. please reconsider. the ones that are flipping you crap, do not pay your bills or walk in your shoes. dont let them push you around or away. there are people that love ya . i do !
Dusty, I will still see you and anyone else that wants to see my pets on the "other" forum. There are alot of people who do not like me on here, and that is a VERY uncomfortable feeling. Maybe someday if things change here I might come back but I need to go where there is less stress. People do not have to like me, but getting talked to like I am an idiot or basically being told that I do not care for my animals, is not something that I want to be around. I am sorry. Anyone that wants to see the animals and/or talk to me can go to the "other" forum.
(If you do not know what forum I am talking about, ask me before today ends or Dusty after I am gone)
katz i am not going to ban your name. i really do not want to see you go. while i do have a problem with your decisions most times when it comes to rehoming your animals i do value the other things you bring to this board.
so as far as i am concerned your name will remain active if you choose to stick around.
MasonX-- what banned troll are you? Just curious. Either it seems like some one that has either been banned for not following the rules and causing problems. Or some one that is ashamed of what they are saying and don't want to own up to the nasty stuff they are saying.
Katz, sorry to see you go, I can relate. I personally feel it is a loss.
Man, You guys are not supposed to be making it this hard to go. Maybe I am jumping the gun but I am sick of this. It really gets hard to get on here every single day and worry if someone is going to interigate you. I don't know. It is the little snide remarks that I cannot handle. I hate defending myself all the time. I cannot guarantee I will be back. This happens everytime. I leave for a break, come back and get chewed out for one reason or another. I just don't know if I want to go through that again.
Katz...I just repeat what I told a new member that was afriad to post here. Please reconsider...
Hi there! Its just me I wont bite!LOL! Sorry you have a bad feeling about joining this forum. I didnt read too many before I just jumped right in with both feet and got soaking wet myself!I got blasted over my choice of dogfood!He,he!And many pet owner hate that I love hunting.(and I forget that too and try to share my love,unsuccesfully!) But I've learned who to stay away from and what posts I need to divert from so i dont lose my karma. I've learned alot and I've gave my opin. too on some things. Dont let complete strangers turn you off from asking/answering questions. If you feel uncomfortable then just log off and read a book or watch tV or what ever you find relaxing!Thats what i do! Sometimes its hard to tell what the person really means and I've been taken out of context and I've taken others out of context. No biggie! Just dont let negative vibes keep you from expanding yourself!. Log on and have fun!
Don't let no one make you want to leave. I am so sick of these trolls too & the folks who are rude. But we need people like you. We need to ignore them & don't give them ammunition. So are you going to change your mind???
Katz, I am sorry that you want to leave this forum; you know what you are all about, don't let anybody tell you any differently....you know that you are doing the right thing by your dogs and at the end of the day that is all that matters. It's inevitable that on a public forum you are going to be dealing with individuals that don't share the same opinion, that's life and don't take it personally. I do hope you stay :)
Hate to see you go. Take a break if you feel you need it but leave your name here in case you want to come back.
You are a nice person and have added to this forum so I hate to see you run out by some disagreements and some "trolls". Think about it when you aren't quite as mad and then decide. If this is truly stressing you out, you don't need it. But that will be our loss.
