On the surface, the forum looks like a great place, lots of members, lots of topics. As a newbie, however, you are oblivious to the truth. As time goes on and you are involved in more discussions, it becomes obvious.
The admim is running a dictatorship, not a forum.
Have a look at the member list - notice how many members are banned? You would assume they did something wrong. They didn't.
The admin has a very particular certain set of views. Nothing wrong with that, the intelligent among us very much agree with freedom of speech and are happy to debate opposing views. The admin, however, does not. So, let's just say if you believe the world is all rosy and solutions to problems are black and white, and that all dogs (and their owners) poop fairydust and fart rainbows......well this is the forum for you. If you are happy with someone else telling you how you should think, feel and what you should say about any topic, then this won't bother you.
Don't get me wrong, a lot of us stuck around for a long time as there is a HUGE wealth of great, friendly, knowledgeable people on there. A great many more have since left due to issues with how the board is run. My opinion? Full of great members, but most are also members of other dog forums which are run in a much more professional manner. Go there.
