    You are absolutely right, but there are nice ways of saying things without words like shameful.

    Congratulations! I just saw your note about a grandbaby! That is just so exciting!

    the way I understood the young gal's post was that she was staying with her mom and trying to finish school and her puppy didn't get along with her mom's dogs. I don't think she wanted to sell her dog. the other women were the ones who told her she shouldn't put her puppy outside in a kennel. she said she spent quite a bit of time out there with the puppy but it whined so bad. well puppies do whine, especially when they have to do something like she did. she had schooling to finish and then moving. I feel that she was doing the right thing in taking care of her puppy so that it didn't get hurt by the big dogs and those women who posted mean spiteful things shouldn't have said anything. all they did was hurt her feelings. She wasn't hurting any of them. this world needs to start learning how to love one another again as it says in the Bible. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Love thyself and others. Sorry about going on like this but some times it just gets me when people do this, just because they are the internet they think they can say or do anything they please and it won't ever catch them. My good MIL said what goes around comes around and it does. If we treat everyone the way we want to be treated this world would so much better off.

    After reading your post, I remember I did see that one, at the very beginning. I did not feel she was trying to sell her puppy. From what I recall she needed to keep the puppy away from the other dogs.
    We all need to try and be nice to others. It does no one any good to be bashing them.

    There were two topics. The first was "help with dog in a kennel." This young girl is trying to get her education and keep her young pit happy until she can move out of her Mom's house. She is doing everything she can possibly do. The second was a puppy that was for sale, and I think the young lady just didn't understand that she couldn't sale a puppy on the site. There are so many people who just don't read the rules. She apologized as soon as the first post was made, but it was followed by some more negative comments. It was quickly deleted because of the really cruel posts that were made to the topic.

    Gayle, You are very welcome! I will be watching with anticipation! I was never lucky enough to have children, so I have kind of taken my sister's grandkids under my wings and I make them all quilts. They are so precious. The youngest was born with a hole in her heart, which the doctors didn't find until she couldn't gain weight. She has now had open heart surgery and is doing fantastic. It was really scary for her to have open heart surgery when she was about 10 months old, but she is so cute and making fantastic progress. The doctors said it would take 4 four weeks recovery. Within two weeks she was home and running a hundred miles a minute. I know I ramble, but I am very happy for you.

    I suppose I am lucky I didn't read the post! I can't even offer a "should have not" or a "why did you" response. My opinion probably doesn't matter to many, but to those that understand what I am saying, it is valued.

    Right is right and wrong is wrong. The only gray areas I allow for myself is in quilting. If I offend anyone, then please PM me and I will adjust my attitude if I think it is necessary. Ha! I was actually asked to leave an online college class because the instructor did not understand the "tone" of my written word in a class discussion board. Sarcastic remarks will come back to bite you in the arse every time, unless you personally know the people you are speaking to.

    I do know that I did not read this initial discussion topic. I do know that I did not respond to anyone about their puppies. I really wish that I could have seen it. I have been told that I should have been a Psycho-analyst. Mom says I analyze things too much. Dad tells me I am a psycho. Go figure!

    That's the one I try to use. Also, sometimes if something "hits a nerve", which happens to us all, I ask myself....."what will this comment accomplish?" I have kept my mouth shut many times after asking myself that question...LOL :D

    This is a bit ironic, don'tcha think?

    This whole topic points in a negative direction.

    The subject is negative and critical.
    The responses are negative and critical.

    The entire line of discussion invites argument.

    While it's easy enough to assume it was begun with the intent to be helpful, the results can't be anything but the opposite.
