    Default Attacking.

    Just to give a perspective.

    Many here have birds.
    If you went to a bird board with a question that those there have answered so many, many times but you didn't know, were genuinely uneducated, had no clue. how would you feel? If attacked for your lack of knowledge or well intentioned ignorance?

    My pair have eggs, what do I do now.
    Why did you not separate them? Why give a nest box as that only encourages nesting? Do you know how to hand feed if you need to pull one? incubator? what about splayed leg? Don't take eggs away as they are replaced. Attack....... as you should know all this.

    I feed my bird seed, does it need anything else? FFS you have never heard of fatty tumours, liver, kidney disease from an all seed or all pellet diet? That caged birds add many years to their lives with a diet of grains, veges, pellets and some seed? That they need interaction? Foraging? Sand perches and sheets cause sores? They need toys in there to help with boredom?

    I bought a new bird but they do not get on....No quarantine? Illnesses get passed on by air and contact and you could kill all yours. You put a new one straight in the bloody cage? What a moron. Separate cages, gradual out of cage time (supervised) will then see if they get on and could avoid injury.

    etc etc etc.

    My point here is that many come here with situations that we, as a group can be knowledgeable about. Not all will know of puppy farms, that buying from a pet shop encourages replacement from those sources in some cases.

    Education is the key.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I agree!! I am shocked at the number of people shot down on here for either having an un desexed dog or a pregnant dog or intentions of breeding.......
    I can't understand how anyone would think its better to attack these people, as opposed to educate them on the reasons why the above is not a good idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know I'm still fairly new here, but I have to say although I agree with what Kelpiemum has posted above, I have rarely seen this happen. I agree it should not happen, but we are all living emotional beings who all feel disgust, horror and anger towards others at times...obviously it's whether we choose to walk away from a comment or thread, or we don't.

    Having said that, where I have seen people 'attacking' other posters, a lot of the time those same people attacking have tried their utmost to offer help, advice and education first. When the OP refuses to listen, acknowledge, or even consider other people's advice etc, and comes back with the most pathetic, rediculous and downright moronic attitude, that seems to be when people get 'up in arms.'

    I (in my time here) have founds comments offensive, rude, nasty, hurtful and have ignored them every time but one. I have been saddened by the fighting 'in-house' between long-standing members and have tried to throw water on the fires, so to speak.
    However, I am guilty of blasting a member here recently as their comments and attitude infuriated and disgusted me more than I can say. My mistake is that I should have walked away and left that person whom I perceived to be an idiot wallow in their own crap. I hope I have learnt from that, and can continue to walk away as I have usually done prior to that occasion.

    Gosh I'm long-winded! Sorry. Point is, those who simply attack with no justification or any understandable reason (no matter whether right or wrong, doesn't matter) really spoil it for others on a forum. But I do feel there is a big difference between the two.
