    John, I realize you're joking, but that's not remotely funny, even in jest.

    That's not the way Firemark conducts business.

    Anyone who is banned knows exactly why they were banned.
    Anyone who wants that changed knows exactly how to change it.

    Whats the worst that could happen?
    I am not opposed to giving someone a second chance. However, in all of these situations I do not know the back story as to why they were banned. I am sure there is more to it than what we read here. Maybe if we knew the whole story we would agree they should be banned and stay banned. I personally do not want to know. Chris is a fair guy and I am sure he did what he did for good reason. I think once you push someone to that point there's no going back.....or coming back. It's his site and he can run it however he wants.

    When I read you first post, I was thinking how wonderful it was to have breeders that took the time to do background checks on perspective puppy buyers. The breeder must really care where his pups go to investigate financial reports, character and qualifications of potential owners. (Good morning Roseberry we knew you were being facetious)

    once you take sponsors, the freedom to call it your site changes. Now you have to consider their wishes as well. That turns into a freedom of speech issue frankly and brings in the politics already so prevelant in the sport

    RTF isn't covered by the Constitution.

    Chris is the one with the freedom to ban, restrict, impinge, and stifle for any reason good, bad, or indifferent.

    He is free to smother the fire, fan the flames, or let it smolder and die.
