    My "sawing off" comment was in regards to the pulley reins. I personally think they should be used only in the hands of an experienced rider. I remember schooling for the maclay finals and having...

    All right, I can't resist. the reason this criticism is NOT too harsh and the reason it MUST be said is because she is ruining the poor horse! There is no use in keeping our mouths shut if it may...

    NO, NO, NO. That is exactly what I am saying--I have NEVER lurked here, ever since my decision to leave because of Erin's personal e-mails to me. I knew what was going on because it was readily...

    You know what? they ARE worth getting angry over when you are being personally attacked by the moderator of a board on which you would like to participate. For example, I am going to London in a...

    Nope, sorry--didn't kill it. just wanted to chime in and agree with Emma that it is TOTALLY uncalled for and unfair to disparage rockstarr and miniwelsh when they cannot be here to defend themselves...

    To respond to Serendipity, actually nine e-mails is quite a lot in a span of 45 minutes, especially when I am pretty certain that NOT ALL 7,000 members are currently online. It is because of this...

    And, just for the record, I have gotten NINE (count 'em, nine) e-mails applauding me for pointing this immoderation out. I guess I just happened to have the nerve to say what several others were...

    I have not posted on or even read the BB for months, until yesterday. But as a victim of the immoderate moderating going on on these boards (which was the reason I ceased to frequent the boards) I...
  9. But why is that offensive/disturbing? Not sure...

    But why is that offensive/disturbing? Not sure why Miniwelsh suggested that Jair wasn't real, but why does it upset anyone? I just find it kind of strangely amusing, not offensive. Maybe that's...

    Thanks, DMK. You said it better (and more nicely) than me. I was trying, I promise. /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

    Is anyone else as confused as I am? Why is it so upsetting to call someone not "real"? It is not an insult, but a simple statement of fact that someone is using an altar ego or something. I don't...

    Why is that malicious?

    Jingles for you. /infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

    Let us know if there is anything we can do (i.e., have you seen the thread on Rita Mae BRown's new book? I'm sure someone would send you their...

    Um, why do you think I am twelve years old? Or maybe you don't, but that's what your post sounded like.

    Gotta run to lunch, I won't know how to deal with the peace and quiet of the Bagel Market...

    Then what is the point of the term "MODERAT"-OR?

    (moderator: stems from "moderate." As in the adjective, "in the middle.")

    This is off topic, though. Oh, but wait, it directly affects a...

    Just to make it clear that I am not a whiny baby, I did not write Erin complaining about my treatment on a thread. I wrote her asking if the thread had been closed b/c I was unable to view it on my...

    Why don't we make a thread to post about kt rose's sainthood? /infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

    I have to say, I am simply awestruck by the dilemma of the Hawks and the support that these...

    I was "rich and had lots of nice things" too, still am, I guess, but you know what? I have learned that it doesn't matter. The best thing I ever did for myself was go to an amazing...

    I just have to add that when my parents bought me a horse worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, it made me a crappy rider. It made me not work as hard and blame my losing on the judges rather than...

    Maybe you already answered this on another thread (sorry /infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif) but have you heard back from People yet? I was reading the latest issue last night and there was some...

    Sister--

    Yes, he does, but he is a total jerk and you don't want him! LOL! He also spends half his time telling Mr. Commodore what a waste of time and money horses are. Yuck!

    Okay, not to be a b#@*ch, but flypony, I gotta respond: I didn't "go for" quantity over quality either. First of all, I didn't ask for a 3 carat stone, to be honest I had thought it would get in the...
