    I know this is for introductions but seeing as how i am new i would like to take a moment to talk about some of the conduct i have witnessed on here.

    First of all i would like to start off by saying that so far most people i have met or encountered on here thus far have been wonderful. Thank you to those.

    I would like to admit that in my ignorance i responded to a message in a thread, i thought that the reply would post under their message and not at the end of the thread.

    I was riddiculed and mad to feel about three inches tall because of that small mistake. I was made to feel that I was not welcome to contribute any information that I have learned or know.

    AS i am a first time father and juggeling school, finances and this hobby...and not having the time to take care of myself the way i use to already has lowered my self esteem.

    So to encounter such rudeness and curtness makes me feel that much lower.
    Im not using this as a therapy session, as this is a chicken site..at least mostly, nut to remind people..you bloggers, posters, readers, newbies, experts, contributers.....that there is a person on the other side of that monitor your staring at...thirsting for knowledge or filled with excitement to open u and share their hobbies and the ups and downs of life with absolute strangers and friends.

    Respect is universal,
    Kindness is divine
    and to err is human

    Sincerely "a Just Hatched Member" reminding you all we are people.

    It's a new interface so there has been a steep learning curve recently, don't feel bad, also remember some of these post you see are from children, there's not the same empathy yet.
