    There are some scary people on here, and they are people we all know and respect from their posts.

    After seeing what goes on, I have to hand it to the Mods. They do a fantastic job keeping it civil around here.

    That explains why she who will not be named led off one of those threads slamming "you" like it was each of us and we participated along with the rest of the world against them.

    That is something they all seem to have in common.
    Does anyone know what this says?

    So Amberhill has her own board now?

    Yep.

    The only BB I'm on is COTH. IDK about convos on other horse related BBs so when these "narcissistic" types (I have other words for them) get confused and the webs they weave become more and more tangled...it gets confusing over here at COTH. One of the more recent threads that was started over here was out there b/c there were references to threads on another BB without referencing the convo on the other BB.

    One thing about all these BBs - there are some characters...

    That was uncalled for Tripolye as well as mean. It certainly does not bode well for your presence on this BB.

    No, it most certainly does not. But I would caution against making conclusions based on sign up dates.

    It is obvious that you have been here before and were banned or you are using an alter, it seems for the sole purpose of being unpleasant and stirring the pot.

    I enjoy this BB and intend to continue to do so. The ignore function is a wonderful tool.

    Per the other now-closed thread, houseguests are even making their on facebook pages now. Houseguests are really getting computer savvy!

    Yes, that is what I recall, and I think the flirtation sort of died down when he couldn't get over here, or she wouldn't pay or something like that. Or maybe he was here on a student visa and it ran out and he had to go back.
    Only part of me worries...the other part doesn't believe in it.

    Is everyone who hasn't been banned and still on here lifeless?
    Or is it less of a life to keep coming back from the banned to nitpick at people?

    I have not been on here very much since County passed. I actually liked reading his posts.
    Imagine my surprise to see how many extra forums there are now! lol

    I have been returning to the forums regularly as of late, so I am not sure who was banned or why. So, I guess I will continue reading from page 4 to get caught up.

    We appreciate that sometimes it's obvious why some moderation actions are taken, and other times, not so much, but for the most part, there is a method to our madness.

    Thanks ~
