Re: Because nice matters
Thank you Lisa, very well said! I have been having
a hard time gleaning any useful information out of ridecamp lately from between
all the flames.

I gotta say, some people who post on this page
aren't riding enough, drinking enough, are drinking too much or just
plain mean. I have seen people rudely comment on "fun" things I or
someone else wrote. The whole debate on the Olympics had someone getting very
ugly about Germany and it's people. How about the poor lady who's horse had to
be put down after an accident involving the transport company. Could some
of you posters have been any crueler? She wasn't asking for advice, criticism,
or comments. I'll bet she was sorry she ever wrote anything about it.
Now a lady writes about bits, which obviously she endorses one brand
over others, and gets such a rude response even I was offended. Not every
comment requires a response. To all the self proclaimed professionals,
the rest of us are not always asking for your advice. We are just
horsepeople, trying to stay in touch with other horsepeople about horse stuff.
It is one thing to comment on things we don't have all the facts to, but the
whole idea is to bring up topics and discuss them. Like grown-ups. Sarcasm is
better left untyped but rudeness is more than intolerable. Yes, we all get
emotional about certain issues, but you can state your case, make your
argument and not be so stink'en rude to anyone who disagrees. Jeez, lighten
up. In this small horse world, you will more than likely run into someone you
blasted, flamed or were just plain obnoxious to in your unsolicited response .
Then what will you say? Lisa Salas, The odd
