    To Chris, I say take me off your forum. It is not moderated well, and is largely useless. Even the main forum is becoming laden with insults and sniping. Most accomplished trainer/handlers stay away, or don't comment much anymore. Newbies are to the point of being pushed into their own room?? Not a positive direction IMO, but its your list, and good luck with it.

    To my friends, farewell, I have enjoyed talking, debating, and bouncing ideas around. I have learned a lot from you guys....Hew, Franco, Duck, Ken, Cary, Stump, Buzz, Gerry and others.

    To those who helped run me off...I have nothing to say to you, except, YOU WON. You may feel victorious in running off all opposing voices, but you will someday realize, you only hear yourself in that manner, and that stunts growth.

    Chris, I hope we can remain friends outside the forum. To show I am more than words, I am asking to be removed from the active list. That is my action. My words would be in order to save this list, I would also remove Stan, Sandyq, UB, and others who's sole purpose of posting is to demean others and contribute nothing to dog training or other stated purposes of the forums. You have exhibited a large double-standard in your enforcement of the rule "BE CIVIL OR BE BANNED". No doubt things will quiet down for a while, but as long as you tolerate the behavior of those above, this problem will resurface from time to time. And take note: all the times you've had to intervene....me, Gibson, Roger......there has also been ONE common denominator in all those situations.....the one who "did what he had to do".......

    This is no longer a "sandbox" when certain users post others' place of employment information in an effort to discredit them or their profession. You had a chance to stop that behavior and didn't. When people then say they carried out threats, I have to go to my websites and see if my practice has been anonymously trashed on grading sites. I didn't see any moderator intervention there, and frankly, and oddly, the recipient of that action is now also banned, as where the perpetrator is not.

    This list just isn't worth the hassle nor time anymore. I'm sure many could say the same thing lately.

    Via con Dios,

    Dave
    And this is different from the last time you threatened to leave how? Did you even last a DAY without posting last time you "quit"??

    I wouldn't worry, Buzz. He posted his swan song at 1:00 and he's still logged on at 5:58.
