The way I read what Beau said was that FredNurk may be a nickname/poster at DOL and has a disagreement with BettyDoe on DOL so BettyDoe creates a nickname "FredNurk" on a different forum and then says horrid things about DOL, so FredNurk gets banned at DOL. When it was BettyDoe making the posts ie an imposter of FredNurk.
JTDNTB - If I was you and I wanted to post at DOL or just use the Active Threads list, I'd register with a different nickname - maybe something related but shorter if you want or something completely different. And I wouldn't mention any puppies or breeding of dogs on or near BSL. There are plenty of people at DOL who think that BSL sucks too but the whole thing probably wouldn't be well received. And the threads go too fast for you to get a good chance to explain yourself and how you've worked to prevent future problems like you have here. If you wanted to ask questions about puppies, ask but don't mention breed or breeder, or be vague like "bully breed".
You could probably do site searches to find the answers you need though, its almost certain to have been discussed before.
Been discussed before would also explain the lack of response some people get there to really basic questions that are answered in a squillion other places on the web. When the forum is moving so fast, why bother typing an answer there and miss out on a more interesting conversation somewhere else.
So from the "get go", I never got a "freebie" per say. I gave the members a discount ... & they were grateful. I never realised I was breaking the rules until the thread got moved.
Now I pay for advertising & members don't get a discount.
As for reporting other people "making money" by having a thread in General. I'm not that shallow. Good luck to 'em I say. Go for your life !!
Unsubscribing from this thread now. I've got enough stress in my life right now without getting any more wound up over this topic.
Gsds - nepotism rules. Troys little mates - k9 force included can advertise at will but others are subject to the rules. Clea I daresay many ppl who have eng as a first language don't know the word lol
It's ok Clea I had no idea either
Why would I be bitter over something that happened years ago? I am simply stating facts. So it's ok if someone goes and starts a thread about gsds treats? Or not?! It's nepotism and the reason I was banned was because I said so - simple. Only the smallest of people hold on to things that are so far in the past.
What a petty post Anne. FYI I've not been there for two years not that I need to justify myself to the likes of you
I used to be on DOL, but it just didn't feel right to me. I remember getting in an argument once with a member because she asked for opinions related to crossbreeding and when I gave an opinion she didn't like, she basically started attacking me. She PMed me saying something along the lines of "Take your mongrel crossbreeding views elsewhere" (not an exact quote, this was years ago)
I've checked back a couple of times when I've seen it mentioned on other dog forums and the people there just seem so paranoid of everything related to purebreds, as if everyone is out to get them and their precious pedigree dogs. There was a post there about some research that was being done into family friendly pets or something (not breed related) and they didn't even want the research to be done because it could reveal something "bad" or because it could find something that had the potential to be skewed by the media. The media skews EVERYTHING - should we stop doing all research? And if the study did reveal something bad, that's an indicator that maybe it's time to fix it - not that we should just turn a blind eye on it and refuse to study it. I don't mean any offense to anyone here who's also part of that forum and I know not everyone is like that there, this is just the general feel I get from it.
