    In these days of online predators and pedophiles, I removed the thread for the safety of the minors on the board. I have also been editing out ages of minors from other posts when I find them.
    It is never a good idea to tell too much info on the internet.
    While our members are of the highest quality, this board is open to the whole internet.
    Thank you for understanding.

    Good call! I have three children who help out with the chickens but I wont post their pictures or stuff about them in the forums... Wish it was not so, but we have to protect our children.

    Thank you BYC.

    I agree. My 10 year old wants to learn how to build a webpage, so I told her that I would teach her this year. Guess what she wants on her page?
    So we have already had one discussion about what she can and can't post.

    WTG! If my kids were younger I would love for them to hang here. But alas, my daughter loves fighting with Rowdy but she isn't too big a chicken lover like her old mom.

    I think that was a wise call. It never even occured to me. Isnt it a sad world that we have to worry about such things.[​IMG]

    I have to agree...I never even thought about it. Mostly I think because everyone here is so nice. How often do you find that in person let alone on the internet.

    Good Call,

    Thank you all for your support.

    I do think I should make something perfectly clear.
    At no time was there any indication of anyone posting that seemed to pose a threat. Nor did anyone who posted in the original thread do anything wrong. As a stepmother and daughter of a police officer, I was concerned at "possibilities". Overprotective? Maybe. But in the best intentioned way.
    Chickchair's mission for these message boards is that they be very family friendly and for all ages to be able to read and learn and laugh here without having to ask Mom or Dad to explain a joke or to wonder why people are mean to each other. The staff supports this and we will do what is necessary to accomplish that goal.
