One has to wonder!!!

    Hy - I stated my opinion without being rude or offensive! I'm allowed to do that!!! At least once a week there are closed threads, banned members, offensive and rude replies! Not all forums are like this! So why does this one hav to be that way???
    You have been judgemental and rude on several ocassions Amy. Generally when ppl hit report buttons they state why and where they feel a person has been rude, or nasty, or breached this or that. Mods/admin look at those posts and make a decision. I do not recall if I have responded in the affirmative to reports against some of your posts. I may have.

    You regularly state that members here are rude and judgemental. Heck, you yourself judged the entire forum just the other week because so many ppl had read your thread but not posted. Perhaps that is something for your to consider Amy?

    You are correct. If this was my forum, many members would be gone. But the fact remains it is not.

    The only closed threads recently are those where the OPs have specifically asked for them to be closed/deleted. Should I tell them to go get stuffed Amy? Those members banned are ones who severly deserve it, and who have blatently violated the rules here. Should I not ban abusers? Should I leave all the filthy spammers here for you to deal with Amy?

    The above are facts and questions by the way, not judgements.

    Amy, you are correct - perhaps mod and Admin should come down much harder on ppl who appear rude and judgemental to others. You also fail to comprehend that if that was so, many members would be reprimanded and there'd probably be few left.

    What dumbfounds me is the pig-headed unfairness that is protrayed here. You can have any opinion, you can be bloody rude, you can be as judgemental as they come, but that's okay? But if someone else says something you don't like, oh **** all hell breaks loose.

    I'm glad none of you saw the replies from one member in that thread. Thankfully the member deleted her own posts saving me the effort, because they really were deplorable.

    Would you have all jumped up in arms if JJames had used the words testicles instead of balls, just to be politcally correct.

    Yep, I've had an absolute gutful of all this rubbish! I have also had a gutful of being told to delete threads every time a member starts one, then gets comments they don't like. Tough frigging titties. If a person starts a thread, deal with the replies whether you like them or not. Or don't start the darned thread in the first place. It's childish and it's a joke.
    Rude, yes, personally attacking someone who is going through a hard time?....NO.

    Perhaps he hit a nerve for me, DA, considering the first posts he made on this forum were in the thread about Mully's passing, which had me in bloody tears. Seems he is still insensitive and inconsiderate.
    Thankfully there was a lovely member who tried to ask him to cease posting in the thread, didn't stop him though. Yet another instance where he didn't know the full story yet felt the need to upset another forum member.

    I have no qualms with people having a differed opinion to me however IMO, in a situation where the subject is obviously quite sensitive, if you cant say something nice then dont say anything at all.

    There is a reason I rarely post on this forum, think its pretty self-explanatory. I started a post the other week, a genuine question about my dog, I had a post reply count of about 5. when it comes to all the argumentative threads or threads that are non dog related though, well everyone has an opinion.

    He didn't deserve a possible second chance? No matter how slim?

    If I had this option when I went through the ordeal with Mully, I would have tried giving her a second chance, without a second thought. Yet she wouldn't have been able to stay in the environment that I was providing her. What if I was unable to find someone to house her temporarily whilst looking for a new forever home? Should I have automatically had her put to sleep because I couldn't adequately provide her with what she needed? Never mind if she COULD POSSIBLY have been rehabilitated and given a second lease on life? (obviously I was not able to do this given the circumstances)



    I completely agree Hy, what if?

    Yes, I understand totally where you are coming from Judge, and I do remember that altercation too. It was in poor taste, I agree.

    It's hard not to have a voice. Obviously I have grown tired of that. I have for quite some time sat in the background and like your title depicts, "kept my mouth shut" and simply acted when it was needed. There are those who have voiced their opinion that I am too scared to allow anyone to have an opinion. I find that hilarious, because I do note that those voicing that specific bitch about me have been those who have had posts edited or deleted as they were in breach of forum rules, so ya gotta laugh!

    The thread was closed because the OP asked. No other reason. I find it ironic that some members appear put out by threads being closed or deleted, when it is usually at the request of the OP in the first place. Amazing.

    Firstly , Hyacinth- Have been there already,it was more than hard,it was heart shattering .

    Judge,surrender to the RSPCA is nothing like you finding somewhere temporary whilst you move etc....and with the amount and extent of poor Sumo's emotional and mental problems instead of being deserted at the RSPCA he deserved to be given his wings by the one who he adored and trusted.
    The chances of a dog such as Sumo being given a second chance through the RSPCA is just about nil. If you were that adament about him being given a second chance you would of rehomed him yourself so you knew he was safe and loved.
    No matter how long it took.

    Being led into a cold,sterile enviroment by a complete stranger,no doubt still wondering what happened to the one he trusted and loved,to be PTS with not a familiar face/voice/comforting touch is wrong in my opinion,really wrong. Actually thinking about poor Sumo at this minute has me in tears

    I didn't mean whilst I moved house, I meant temporary housing whilst being rehabilitated and then found a new forever home. Just speaking hypothetically.

    Not sure whether you mean me or Cleas when you stated the bold part. Obviously I am not in a position to take on another dog given my current circumstances, I am struggling to keep my own dog let alone take on another. If you meant Cleas, well, IMO he should have been surrendered if she could not continue adequately caring for him. simple as that.

    I just think a slim chance is better than no chance whatsoever.

    Ok so I just wanted to post this.....it is specifically the RSPCA Temperament Test for the ACT but Im sure they are similar if not the same for all states.

    http://rspca-act.org.au/pages/images...r_outcomes.pdf

    Can someone also please explain to me how there are so many staffords, am staffs and cross breeds at the RSPCA looking for forever homes if they 'rarely' pass the TT????

    I understand Sumo had some health issues and some anxiety issues (Im not saying I know them all but based on what I do know) but from what Ive read in the link above, he should have passed.

    He was good with people and children, a little toy/food possessive, wasn't overly dog aggressive etc. How many rescues have we seen that are dog aggressive? I can certainly name a few.

    If I have been all of these things then I have broken the rules of this forum? Have I not? So where is my PM from a Mod warning me about my behaviour and the consequences of continued rude and offensive behaviour??? Are there no consequences for breaking the rules of this forum??? What is the point in even having rules if members are not warned and given consequences (temp bans, a points system etc??? SOMETHING!!!)

    WHere did I say tell them to get stuffed??? Where did I say don't enforce forum rules??? Where did I say don't ban members??? Where did I say leave the spammers be??? If you read back I think you will find I didn't say any of that!!!

    The above are facts and questions by the way, not judgements.
    Mmmhmm! Sure they are! *rolls eyes*

    Oh and by the way DA, if the mods of this forum are allowed to be rude and offensive to members, call them name etc, who gives them warnings and consequences for breaking forum rules???

    Amy, where did I say you said those comments? I didn't. I simply asked you the questions in the hope you would have an answer to them all.

    Hy - I stated my opinion without being rude or offensive! I'm allowed to do that!!! At least once a week there are closed threads, banned members, offensive and rude replies! Not all forums are like this! So why does this one hav to be that way???

    The above was your comment - therefore I am asking you - how do you want to change this? Threads are closed when the OPs ask for them to be closed. Members are banned when they blatently and seriously violate rules. All forums are not like this? Who knows? I haven't done a study of every forum within Australia to judge the correctness of that deduction or not, so wouldn't know.

    Amy, I am well aware of your personal feelings towards me. Do you wish to continue this discussion here, or would you prefer to do so via PM? Because you see, here you can say whatever you want to me and my hands are somewhat tied, and I think you know that. But I would like to discuss it with you, as I'm tired of not being able to voice my opinion as you seem to be able to do.
