I've seen the forums seeming a bit more tense today, more irritation over the little things, causing more negativity to arise. I just wanted to remind everyone to stay kind.

Earlier I was in a local poultry Facebook group trying to help someone out, I advised them to try posting on BYC as well so they could get more opinions. Their response was:

"No. I figured there were great people here. It seems there all people want to do is be mean."

This broke my heart. I love BYC, and it feels like family. I've always felt so alone, but now I feel like I have a family, and I get to chat with others with similar interests. BYC is incredible, people are so supportive and helpful, I love it! The fact that someone has a had a different experience was heart breaking.

I just wanted to ask everyone to please try and remain kind and positive. I don't want anyone else to have a negative experience from our wonderful community.

Please don't think I am targeting someone specific, if you asked me to name someone who is unkind I wouldn't be able to do it. Most of the people here are absolutely amazing.

Please think of what you say before you say it.

I also just want to say, please don't think I am claiming to be perfect. I have said some unkind things that I 100% regret. I would unsay them if I could, but I have learned from them, and I hope we can all learn to be more kind from the times when we have been not-so-kind.

Stay Kind! ❤

I started a thread like this not to long ago. It got shut down because people started name calling and became argumentative. Sigh, this is why we can't have nice things!
Oh wow! :eek: people are ridiculous!! I swear some people just walk around looking for something to be angry about or somebody to slip up so they can jump on them! It’s sad.
