Once you are here a little longer, you will understand that when people have little disagreements here, they are just that -- just disagreements. Generally, no one 'hates' someone after they have a little tiff and then never talks to them again. Like, I had words with "MyPoundPuggle" today over some issues but that doesn't mean that I will boycot every message s/he writes or will be purposely disagree or anything like that. We all generally get along. But you have to expect 'disagreements' when people are so passionate about their pets and this forum in general. Don't take all this to heart. It really is a great place to get info and talk about pets. Admin is in the process of ironing out a few problems (such as having 'general chat' areas and breaking up the posts into categories (I think?). Stick with us! I would hate to see people not continue coming because of reading posts like the recent ones. :)
The truth be told, there ARE some wonderfully helpful folks here. They are more thna willing to offer advise and suggestions from personal experiences or training. Like any large gathering, you have many varried personalities as well. There are the instigators, the peace keepers, the "don't rock the boaters", the "drama queens", (if something bad happens to someone, they'll have had a far worse experience or SEVERAL of them) and then there are those of us who just pop in from time to time to see what's going on. You have to realize that you can find great help here, but there's also the infantile attitudes held by some, no matter their age, that requires all the drama one experienced in high school (or is STILL experiencing). It all balances out in the end! We even have the occassional twitty troll who will start a topic, just to get a response by pushing hot topic buttons. No big deal. There are far more helpful people here, who are willing to share and are warm and caring individuals. Stick around and get to know them all.
