“DogPages Excels Itself Yet Again”

Written on: 01/01/2012

A 'moderator' on dogpages recently posted the following:

\"Just a reminder that those people who decide that this board is not the right place for them, for whatever reason, and who publicly announce that they are leaving the board are always respected by the Moderating team. The account is not deleted, because we don't delete accounts due to this requiring the database to be purged of associated posts, but we put the account on preview which prevents posts being displayed.

Of course if you intend to leave the board then it would seem strange to continue posting.

If you have changed your mind it might be polite to request a review , explaining your decision, to a Moderator.

Thank you for understanding.\"


Firstly I think people have a right to ANNOUNCE they want to leave a forum if they are not happy. They just want to explain and leave no harm in that.

Secondly, the moderator used the term 'purged' which means To get rid of people from an organization because you do not agree with them. That says it all.

Its such a shame there are a few people on there who do brow beat if you don't agree. They always do it with a \"thank you for understanding\" or a \"you can always leave if you're not happy\" and then a smiley face at the end as to appear polite, but who knows whats being said behind the scenes.

I would ask people to still use dogpages for the sake of the animals that need new homes. Also use the chatter & training section as new dog owners can get some great advice when they are struggling, but take some of the crafty comments from mods and senior members with a pinch of salt and don't let them put you off.
