    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.

    A serious comment on this topic.

    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....

    Oh, I agree, and both should have been sent to the principal's office. Been there myself.

    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.

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

    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 .

    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 .

    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 . Lanse & Dennis fit that characterization.
