Your comments are truly ridiculous. You've obviously been watching your morning programs and have become a leading expert in cyberbullying. I've only written a paper about it for my masters degree, but I am sure you know more.
You don't intimidate or abuse people? Read your own posts. You are possibly the most sanctimonious person I have ever come across on an internet forum. You are not a god for doing rescue - lots of people out there are doing it without having to trumpet on about how awful the dogs they see are. If you are looking for kudos, please find another hobby. You don't take people on face value, it is obvious by your quickdraw judgements. At least some of us are willing to admit we are not perfect.
You are just another fallable human. Welcome to our world. You aren't the only one who has seen it all - I have, as have both Anne's - and perhaps Deerhound will share some of her stories about the children she has had in her life one day. People learn and grow through experience, not through being pandered to and spoon fed. You weren't on the brink of anything. You weren't near being on the brink of a breakthrough. Read through his previous threads. You know as well as I do that you can't reach them all.
Why on earth wouldn't I compare two boys of a similar culture and age. By your rules you shouldn't be talking about any other dog aside from this one - because each is an individual case. A 16 year old with internet access is not someone who is living a sheltered life with "strict" parents. If he were, his parents would have posted something here already.
You used the word "I" 18 times in those two previous posts - I used it 5 times. perhaps you need to stop talking about yourself and start talking about the issues you are so desperately passionate about. Stop preaching on the mount. You seem to think that you hold all of the experience and pain of the world. You don't - experience is a shared and varied thing. Your input is valuable, but it is not the only valid point of view.
You seem to be implicating me in what may or may not happen to this dog. This dog is wholly and solely the responsibility of its owners. Wouldn't you love to know what Mason's parents think about his adventures here?
Oh yea, and this kid is truly a whinging brat - read back over the previous threads. You might have several areas of experience with kids, but as a teacher - and specifically a teacher of this age group - I would wager I know more. You can't reach em all, and if you personalise that it will kill you.
