You are a guest on this forum...........being a member doesn't give you the right to do what you please....being the owner does give me more freedom that regular members do not have...............kinda the benefit of owning the site, paying the $$$ involved in the site, and the time involved in the site.

Folks may not like my rules or the way I do things on here, just as I may not like the rules and way they do things on your site, in their club, and etc..

Every forum has rules............some are wide open and spelled out such as this sites. I know a very large coonhound forum that has basically the same rules, but they are unwritten find out that they are unwritten after you do it.

There is nearly 14,000 members. Common sense tells you that you are not going to be able to please 100% of the people. And to be honest, I quit trying to several years ago.

The forum rules and way it is operated is what it is............folks can either accept it or they can find another hound forum as is not the only one on the net.

If you don't want to use the forum because of our rules and policies, that is your choice. Kinda like the various Kennel Clubs, folks have choices to what they want to hunt in if they don't like how the rules and procedures are in another Kennel Club. Same thing with these Hound Hunting sites -- different choices of Hound Hunting sites to choose if you don't like the rules and procedures of a site. If you want to disregard the rules as though they do not apply to you, you can expect us to cull your account.

I tell you what I will not accept...............not going to provide a free forum and my time involved in maintaing the site to take the abuse people attacking me and the forum rules cause they don't agree with them -- don't like the rules then don't use the forum, it's that simple ...........I don't care who you are. You might find your account deleted from the forum as I culled you as I do not have time for the junk nor will I accept that junk any longer.

Apparently, I am not the only forum that thinks this way.

The American Beagler has this on their forum:
1. There will be no slamming the board, its rules, or the moddys (including me). You are a guest here, and you will have to show respect and manners -- even if you disagree with how we do things. We have a PM feature if you want to object to something. If you think you are at liberty to embarrass us or hold our feet to the fire over something, you are wrong. We will start deleting any and all posts we find to be of an insulting nature that are aimed at those providing you this forum. If we find we have to delete your posts often, (and you aren't learning from your mistakes) then you will be gone. When dogs bite the hand that feeds them, they don't stay in the kennel long.

Gun Dog Forum has this on their forum:
For those who taunt the moderators, this is your warning: If you feel they’ve responded inappropriately, PM me. From this point forward, I will personally delete your account if you publicly taunt them.

Owning this site has brought me both good and bad, friendships as well as enemies.

Folks either like the site or they hate it............nothing to lose sleep over if they don't like it. But I am not going to pay and spend my time on the site for you to trash me and the rules cause you don't agree with the rules and policies on here.

As Bev stated on her forum, "When dogs bite the hand that feeds them, they don't stay in the kennel long."
