    Thing is it's not up to US to forget or not forget.

    It's been said that RTF is like a bunch of folks standing around the tailgate BS'n after the trial. Well, this is Chris's truck and when he decides he doesn't want so-n-so hangin' 'round his tailgate any more, well that's his call. And from what I've observed, Chris has offered many, many, many second chances before he pulls the plug on someone.

    So when that someone insists he ain't gonna take guidance from the janitor, well he's either incorrigible or he's not too swift. Everyone gets a little testy now and then but it's not too hard too stay under the radar if you really want to.

    Take a lesson from Pals. That throwdown on Fallon ... ("hopin' he falls face first into a pile of dog crap" is the main part I remember) ... PRICELESS! But she's cool enough to know when to dial it back and is still here to brag about her little ankle biters.

    It's like arguing with the judges.

    I've been pissed at off friends many times like anyone else has been. Don't talk to them for a while. Spend a day together training or hunting again and know there is no need to bring up old crap, rehash old arguments so, we act like adults, get over it and move on. Attitude of folks here at times blows me away.
    Some of this seems do elementary to just let old dogs lie and move on. Some folks just can't do it over minuscule little issues.

    Melanies been a royal biz atch to me in the past. Does it mean I hold it against her forever? No. Not in the slightest. Move on get over it and often you find folks have more to offer than you think if once and a while you don't take stuff (and yourself) so seriously on a flippin website.

    Lol this is funny because I am sure there are a few ways to get around the blocks if they truly wanted or need to. If you came to my house and pizzed in my drawers I might be able to forgive you but you would never be invited back in.

    I'm pretty sure that there are multiple active members that have been banned at least once.

    Chris does let certain by-gones be by-gone.

    At a certain point, no matter how talented and accomplished a dog is, it's too damn mean to keep in your kennel.

    felt like old times!!!!!

    Wow, that doesn't sound like the Firemark breeder of puppies i've seen in for training. I've never heard of a client who called Firemark for a puppy to be treated this way, I hope you are kidding...?

    Oh. I didn't realize Lee was banned...Melanie too for that matter.

    Maybe we need a list of those banned before we vote on whether or not they should be let back.

    Not that it really matters. It's the Janitors house and he can clean it any way he wishes.

    I have enough toxic people in my life.

    If someone wanted to come back and be a better citizen on the forum I would be all for it, but otherwise I think they are banned for a reason and ought to stay that way.

    I voted no.
