Fools,

We've received a lot of complaints lately about personal bickering and inappropriate remarks. What's distressing is that most of the people here genuinely care about animals and each other, and this board has been invaluable to people in need of advice and support.

I'm not here to point fingers or be a nanny. But going forward, we will have a shorter fuse in taking action to protect the atmosphere and civility here.

If you must state personal observations, do it civilly in email. If there are people you don't like and don't want to read, put them on ignore. Escalating arguments in public may make you feel better momentarily, but it will destroy this board.

Thanks for listening.

Richard
