It bugs me that so many of the people running the board act like the only reason anyone does anything wrong regarding Pitbulls is that they don't know any better. Plenty of folks just don't care
This is a GREAT board. But it is not a great board because of the moderators/regulators. It is a great board because some of the giants of the Pitbull world(non-dogfighting version) post on it. It is the Leslie H's, The Diane Jessups, Hartagolds, Dawgdays, ect, ect ect that make the board great.
You can't on one hand accept back yard millers and on the other promote positive pitbull ownership. To try to do so is particuarly insulting to those people who do rescue.
those you listed add to the quality of this board, they dont make the board. what makes this board great is everybody. we're here to help poeple learn. if we alienate all the people we disagree with and dont give them a chance to stick around than that defeats the purpose.
this is an introduction forum.. not an interrogation room. there are good ways to ask questions w/o being rude, granted it may take longer to word a post like that we just urge you to do so.
Seriously, NO, internet playpens and fun rooms are a dime a dozen. What makes this forum special is that some very old hands with a ton of dogsmarts share their wisdom on here. One of the few places on the net that I'm aware of that so many old hands who really know their stuff post regarding Pitbulls.
And if you guys end up running those folks off because you want a playpen so bad that is a folly of the worse sort.
Whether or not someone is a GOOD breeder is fairly clearcut. And there is no way to know without asking.
