She actually was against it as well and still is on the side of the vets. Also I’ve been replying from mobile and it’s not too easy to reply to everything at once. This is actually why I want an app. But that’s besides the point, I care about the opinions of the active and vet members here. However I won’t let them get in the way of the future and growth of the forum.
Again I don’t believe there will be that much of a change because there is now a stricter policy on derogatory terms and the discussions in the forum will still be of substance.
I’ll work on my dismissive and blunt nature as wel as it seems to have rubbed a lot of the vets the wrong way. I care more for discussion and no one has given me enough data to prove that deragatory terms help convey a point rather than offend a group. With that being said I still stand behind my decision but always welcome feedback about it.
