If I am disgusting I happily blame the mud out here.
I personally found the discussion to be very informative and civil. Makes me sad that it's enough to drive people away.

It was the discussion. Y'all won't be seeing much of Saxon for a while If I was a newbie I'd be inclined to leave, too, but I've been here too long for that.

Well, I propose she delete me on FB, put me on ignore here, and stick around. I have no personal issue with her and it upsets me to see her, or anyone, leave the forum because of a discussion which was civil yet a hot button.

People opposing your view aren't exactly out there to hurt you. I can get very heated about things and I can get equally hurt. Heck, I did leave the pit bull forums over holier than thou training opinions and slanderous infighting which plays a part in destroying the breed. That said I don't think, thus far, this forum has ever crossed over into such a harmful area of forum use.

My vent would be people making an effort to make others feel guilty for speaking their minds, no matter how wrong the opposition feels they are. Sometimes "just shut up, I'm right" is the air on forums and I really appreciate that this is one that doesn't take kindly to such impressions.

Oh god, my dad does this. Drives me CRAZY.


Or, he'll text, and when I don't answer immediately, he'll call to ask if I got his text.

I don't typically go either but if I do I just wear a nice shirt & a nice pair of jeans & sAndles or boots if its really cold.

Yeah I texted a BGF (best guy friend) of mine the other day before we left for dinner with some mutual friends of ours (he's not really on the up & up of technology I guess ... He doesn't even have a smart phone ... Just the old style "flip" phone he's had like ... Forever) & when I get back later that night it says "one missed call" from him I mean come on dude ... everyone KNOWS that "text ediquite (sorry my auto correct won't tell me if that is spelled right lol)" dictates if someone text's you you ALWAYS text them BACK & DON'T call because there is a REASON they didn't CALL you :/

Adrianne, I really, really don't think you're the only reason, or even a big part of the reason. Not by a long shot. It's the whole disrespectful, unlawful, I-do-what-I-want attitude of SO MANY people in the thread.
