    You guys are great!
    I have recently started lurking around some other animal related sites, and I'm appalled by what some people consider "moderation". I've seen members belittled, made fun of, and banned for expressing very rational and well-thought-out opinions. It's terrible!
    It made me realize just what a great job you guys do here to make people feel welcome and a part of the scene in a safe and comfortable environment. Keep up the good work!

    Chickbea, you are banned from going to those other animal-related forums! Now settle down young lady, and talk chickens with us!

    I love a good debate, though - I just don't always want to be a part of it anymore! [​IMG]

    I know I was looking at forums (because it's summer and I am bored) and some of the mods were swearing/rude!

    I've already said it but: mods I love you [​IMG]. And I have been on a fish forum where there was no point to moderation. There was flaming and cursing. And the mods cursed on that forum too. I have deleted my account on that forum.
