    Isn't that kinda the meat of internet forums? I mean, is it not a bunch of random strangers with 'alter' forum names giving advice?

    This person is "alter____" and that is different from "JumpsWithScissors" or PookeyWetBlanket (or whatever forum name you choose) how?

    Or is your real name amastrike?

    Are y'all picking colours, or the evening's libations?

    If it's the first can I be plum? The second, Tanqueray?

    Exactly.....how do we know the OP isn't lying? I am leaning on believing her but how do we know which one is telling the truth?

    Does anyone on COTH use her as their vet?

    Because it's the internet?

    Right.
    Or why they would post what they did here, not when some poster's advice was made misrepresenting as a vet when it was not.
    Strange that.

    If I didn't know for a fact that she is not a vet I would not have posted. If she hadn't been giving veterinary advice I wouldn't have posted. We were friends for a long time and I don't take this situation lightly. My main point with my original post was not even to specifically out her, but after a flood of PMs I decided it was the easiest way to go about things.

    My intent was to warn people to take what they read on this forum or anywhere else on the internet with a grain of salt. Most people would I hope check out the credentials of whoever they let work on their horse, but some may not or may just take the advice of someone on a bb instead of calling a real vet.

    I do know who the OP is, well I don't know as in *know the OP* but I do know the OP's usual COTH name as there was a bit of an oopsie earlier, as does seem to happen when using alters Not sure if anyone else noticed it...
    where am I, what day is it, am I still having a good time?

    You and the red finger squat are missing the irony.

    You are not only hiding behind your BB persona, but made one new one up to out a person you 'used to be friends with'

    See, be that as it may, you have the balls to call her out, have the balls to put your name to it.
    Real one or BB one, I don't really care.

    As such, your warning is massively ironic as well: Take what a stranger on the net has to say with a truck load of salt.

    However:
    Should a person take the word in a Arial or Times Roman off a faceless BB as gospel to treat an animal, they are likely to take the advice of a stranger in the grocery store as well over consulting a vet.

    However, even non-vets can on occasion offer pointers as to what direction to look at if an ailment stummies you.

    i just upped fingered you when i was trying to respond .... anyway, the OP is accusing another poster of a crime. First of all I think that is against the board rules, second of all that is a very serious matter and i think folks should take what the OP has said with a grain of salt - until there is some kind of proof.

    Good Lord, I walk my dog and come back to 50-something "Like" notifications.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have,
    at this moment, been thrown up from below!
