I don't miss either of them.
One was full of it, the other one was even MORE full of it.

Not us though..........;-)

People are joking and laughing here again.

I like that a lot.

There are more than a couple missing.

Yardley
Gibson
Hew
KG
BBG

Some have been gone a while. I am sure I am forgetting someone.

I tried to go away for a little while. You see how well that worked.

I knew I forgot someone! (face palm)

I think yardley must have finally given up on POTUS. Probably got tired of the daily beatings. Can't say that I blame him, but the place seems a little less 'educated' without him around.:p

But don't worry...we've got fresh meat lately...

Kindly take my name off your "fresh meat" list. The only reason I posted on here is because I knew you were all wrong in your assumption that the Tucson tragedy was politically motivated. I already know that it is an exercise in futility to try to talk politics with some of the narrow visioned reactionaries on here. Perhaps that is why so many of the others have departed.

I dunno about y'all but, I do miss dissenting opinions for two reasons.

Dissenting opinions either confirm what I believe or makes me look at the topic from a different perspective.

I'd like to think that my mind is open.;-)

Every thread was becoming personal between 2 guys.
There was little, if any, exchange of ideas or opinions.

And, as always, there is more to the story.....MUCH MORE!!!

Chris is very generous in tolerating our behavior, but when he draws a line, I believe him.

There is much more to the story than a one-line simplification. I am not at liberty nor desire to say more.

Mike,I think even you could agree that the language,the references, inuendos were crossing the line...IMHO many if not all of us have seen that line, some have stepped on that line and then others have no regard for the line...The easy thing to do would have been for Chris to shut down POTUS but then risk some of our crap spilling into the main forum, which would probably end up with the same net result..

If nothing else it should teach all of us that even on the internet, there are rules and guidelines which shall not be breached....

I believe that was the final straw. The person attacked, actually took a cheap shot at one of the Potus Place posters on the main forum.

Notice how these folks, snc & nl get on & don't put out a location - typical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There are more than a couple missing.

Yardley - 2500 words or more become tiresome when 150 or less would have done the task.
Gibson
Hew - He's around, just don't see him in the sandbox on the little stuff. IMO, has some of the best retorts posted on this forum.
KG - Can't speak for KG, but see him on occasion on the main forum.
BBG - Corey probably has a dog to train, he's on the main forum :o.

Some have been gone a while. I am sure I am forgetting someone.

I tried to go away for a little while. You see how well that worked.

Stupid addiction regards,

Having been in the doghouse alone I know what some go through. The main forum had been used by some one with an axe to grind to personally attack myself prior to my even knowing RTF existed. But I would note that even though I made the RTF doghouse, got kicked out of the club I had belonged to for 42 years, filed a complaint with AKC that they have never answered, Things have a way of working out.

I found out who my true friends in this sport were, many on this circuit have a lot of egg yolk on their face & the person spreading the lies won't have access to RTF for quite some time :cool:.

I wouldn't have remained if it was'nt for POTUS PLACE. There are some real Kernels among all the husks. & I think I'm as much a political junkie as most. Unfortunately at times, some of those threads with potential get side tracked by some fairly petty bickering. I'm sure the thread originators or thoughtful participants were'nt happy. The main forum is a real resource for newbies, there is a wealth of knowledge out there (again, kernels from corn husks) if folks will share, & many do.

But the main forum is not a forum for successful experienced people, so the few that share should be acknowledged, profusely. When I talk about experience, I mean those who train their own dogs mostly, have been around the sport through it's ups & downs (25 years or more) & in general are interested in improving the various breeds (JD's post), not how many awards they have piled up in their viewing room :p. Lanse & Dennis fit that characterization.
