    Default Eye opener--Wow do I appreciate the RTF Moderators.

    I do not frequent any other forums so I am a greenhorn in this regard. I was given a link to a thread on a duck chat forum, as I was told a couple of my former students had created quite a stir on a thread, and their website "Cupped Addiction"

    14 pages of mostly nonsense, though some points were made.

    I was appalled by many of the responses, but moreover the lack of "moderating". Mostly banter and bashing with little substance. It got ugly, and these are kids, though admittedly I would not support their hunting ethic.

    I think the thread would have been appropriately shut down quickly on RTF and rightfully so. A classy site indeed.

    Thanks Mods!

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    Thank you

    It's the small things, like this post, or the PM I received thanking me for my help on an issue that make up for all the nonsense that sometimes happens on RTF

    This year there were no contests for syrup and what not, so I did not have an opportunity to write a ridiculous poem expressing my gratitude to all of you for doing what you do here. This is a great resource, like I've written many a time, I would have given up long ago on training my dog if it weren't for you all.

    Edit: Ooops, I forgot to say...Thank you! I really mean it!

    I second John and Renee, this site is an awesome resource - it's been a huge contributor to my pursuit of information regarding retrievers in so many aspects. Thanks!

    As one who was shut down a couple of years ago for one of my less than kind remarks, let me join in with the thank yous to the moderators. Cleo has tried for years to "help" my language, but coming from someone else sometimes makes a more lasting impression. Thank you MODERATORS for trying to help Cleo guide me in the right direction, Bill
