How come so many of you go on to craigslist just to post ads on here that you do not like? I do not understand at all. It seems like every other day there is someone else on here posting another craigslist ad and complaining about how stupid those people are for whatever reason. While, yes, for the most part I agree, what is the point in posting it here? Do any of the 'complainees' ever call the poster of the ad to tell the that what or why they posted bothered you? I am sorry, it is ust annoying to see all these complaint ads from the same site. If you don't like it....quit getting on there and reading it....or do something about it.
Yes, I follow up on any ad that I crosspost on here. I mainly view the shelter ads, and contact rescues for the dogs. I crosspost the ads on here, in case there is someone viewing TP that might be able to help.
Thank You Bellas mom. I am glad that someone does.
I know it is a stupid rant but I was ust wondering if anyone ever actually DID anything about what they were complaining about or if they were the type that just liked to rag about others. I am glad to see that there are people on here that do follow up on them.
Katz - I think it's also important to understand that for some people it's a way of "bonding" with other pet lovers... almost a reality check. Ya know, kind of saying... "this ticks me off... am i being super-sensitive -or do you guys agree with me?" I can tell you that a lot of the people in my "real" life think that I am too fanatical about my dogs and animals in general... it's nice for me to see on here that there are other people who get angry about people being unkind to animals or people deciding after 10 years that they no longer want a pet... just my $.02
I understand that, but if you are so upset about it....wouldn't calling this guy and telling them what you think or giving them some advice be a better way of helping? I was always told that if you are going to complain about something you sure has hell better try to right it or you have nothing to say.
I am not trying to fight with anyone, just trying to find out why post it if nothing is going to be done to help?
How come you go on to terrificpets just to post topics on here about another pet that you do not like? I do not understand at all. It seems like every other day there is another pet on here, being posting another problem topic and complaining about how stupid those "senior members" are for whatever reason whent hey give their opinion.. Ok, no, for the whole part I do not agree, but what is the point in posting it here? Do any of your pets ever tell you that what or why they rehomed bothered you? I am sorry, it is just annoying to see all these unwanted pets from the same owner be rehomed. If you don't like the animal....quit getting more and....or tell yourself you're extremely cruel to these poo animals.
I think we all know that I have, and will continue to try to make the things right that I find disturbing.
When someone posted something about a man who was getting frustrated and refused to take a newborn kitten to a vet, I emailed him about the situation and told him everything I knew about hand raising an orphaned kitten. I told him if he needed help, he could email me anytime. I gave him links upon links and told him everything he was stressing about sounded normal and to give the poor kitten a chance.
Then there was this other time that a woman came on the internet and admitted she had a problem with getting animals and rehoming them frequently. After becoming defensive to me, and after asking for that help...went on to lie and adopt another dog after she had just rehomed one and had a fairly new puppy edition. I found out the information, called the shelter and told them what I knew and they agreed with me that they wouldn't help enable this woman anymore.
Now, I am not the one who posts the ads from craigslist. Never even been to the site. But if there is something I can do about something, especially something that gets me very upset. I am determined and I take action to the best of my ability.
And I am glad some people post these links. People may not come on here and admit to doing so, but they probably are alot like me. And some people are probably more knowledgable in how to get things done in that department then others. Or they may be closer etc.....
How come so many of you go on to craigslist just to post ads on here that you do not like? I do not understand at all. -------------------------- I have a question too. Mind you, I am not attempting to stir up anything or start an argument, but really. If you are that bothered by people sharing ads from these ignorant people...why do you read them? No one else seems to have an issue, let those who want to post and if it bothers you, dont read it. I have seen many times where you have told people that if they didnt like a thread, they shouldnt post on it or read it then.
katz, i can sort of understand, how you would think that when people post things like this, it might be for their own benefit or to gain attention. be that as it may or not, i think there's no harm in cross posting some of the ads here.
if there is at least one more person who saw that ad and did something about it, isn't it a little better than people just not being aware at all?
