    I think having posters point me to earlier posts of some posters has been very educational. I had assumed that everyone on here was a horse owner, leaser, rider, breeder, caretaker and boy was I wrong....I think the cyber reality on all bbs make things a bit "theatrical". However, there are some real horse people on here, just not all of the COTH community.

    You are a veritable old timer here.

    I signed long ago, then in one of the remodeling of the website lost my first name.
    I had not been posting anyway, just signed for the classifieds, really and now someone else had my name.
    I had to sign on again next time I wanted to post something and that is my official COTH start now.

    To the OP, welcome to COTH. We're like any family...put out an opinion and:
    1. 30% will agree with you
    2. 30% will disagree with you
    3. 30% don't really care, but will go off on an tangent about what happened to them
    4. 10% will completely misread your post and comment anyway.

    And, at the risk of rustling up a train wreck, I'll add Gypsy Horses to the list of topics that generate lots of popcorn and aspirin. And I like that breed.

    That said, if one of 'us' is ever in a tight spot, loses a horse or a loved one, you couldn't ask for a more supportive, kind, generous group of people.

    This is why I joined under my own name, as a reminder to myself to stay civil. So far so good, um, I think....although generally when I try to outsmart myself, we both fail

    [to the OP: Now what happens is, some Snarky McSnarkington will save a screenshot of this post, and whip it out years from now when I, in fact, make an uncivil comment, just to prove I am a hypocrite. You've been warned!]

    Aside from the taboo topics list I think there are several Yosemite Sam type personalities on this board that first take great umbrage to a particular comment and then unleash a snarky, sarcasm laden post full of these to try to provoke a fight from a person who was only expressing an opinion. I'm guessing in their personal life they are walking kegs of dynamite as well.

    What? OP, have you never heard the old adage: "Two horsemen, three opinions". I think that explains a lot.

    I too had a former life here a long time ago. For some reason I had to change names when I got a new computer. This board has always had a lot of actual riders along with the posers and I think that's why it's so popular.

    If there is anything to be gained from these "fights" what I have gained is that they are simply reflections. You know people working out their stuff in writing, trying to hone what ever purpose they are working on at the time. Either way, it causes one to consider the source both of the respondent and the original poster.

    And you left off slc2.

    When I would read her posts - I read her posts as being about technique and such - never personal digs. When I read her detractors' posts - I wondered what purpose they were working on. Then she left and I understood their purpose. Though I must say I do not recall who any of the responders were - I do remember slc's purpose.

    Even scarier the older you get.

    In the time I have been reading here, on and off first, then steady since my new name, I have seen the posters come and go as their interest and time changed and with it how conversations went.

    I think it is the same in any other web site out there with forums, not to be seen as right or wrong, good or bad, it is what it is.

    For a while the newer forms of the internet, FB and so, took many away from forums, but the format is not the same and some are back, some new ones decided this is more instructive or fun anyway and traffic picked up.
    That certain groups sent their followers around forums to spread the word, with their action alerts for different causes, added to that.

    I think the title of this thread, "looking for a fight", is really not why most come to COTH, but it was a good way to start such a thread going, if no one takes that literally.
