    My brain cells are pretty fried, at the moment - as they usually are when I get off of an eight and a half hour shift. So, please excuse me and my inappropriate language. I so should've caught that AF Joke - I knew one was coming at some point today...

    Haha, glad I made you laugh.

    You know, while the concept was exceedingly clever, the reality is that this "joke" did cause hurt to a number of people. The subject matter wasn't carefully considered beforehand, I think .. it could have been a GREAT joke if it had been, perhaps, a declaration of love or something equally silly. But given the broad range of personalities and beliefs on a forum like this, the post was in extremely poor taste.

    I feel for those who were hurt by this .. those who have recently lost pets and yet felt singled out by an apparent attack on the pets that have just died .. those who have ill or injured animals and are very fresh to pain ... those who just plain had a bad day. A joke is fine, but it SHOULD be something that all parties can laugh at easily .. if it isn't, then it's a cruel joke.

    And, of course, there are always those who (in a very "superior" way), make fun of the ones who aren't amused. They say things like "lighten up!" .. "it was JUST a JOKE" .. and insinuate that those who don't find it as funny as they do are just plain missing a sense of humor. Those kind of comments simply reflect on a person's lack of kindness and compassion to me.

    For the record - I saw this thread shortly after it was posted. Of course, I read it (who wouldn't, when your name is in the subject line?? *LOL*). I laughed at it before I knew it was a joke .. I'm not concerned at all about what people think of my training or feeding, because I live with the daily success of it. And seeing a couple of posts in response, it was obvious it was a joke and I didn't respond. But in coming back to this and reading through the anger and pain others felt, I don't find that in the least amusing. How can anyone be amused by another's pain?? That's just not right to me.

    So .. clever trick .. poor choice of topic .. maybe next time people (especially mods) will think before they post something that can create anger and pain for so many.

    Just my opinion, of course!

    You know, I'm probably going to get jumped on for this as well- but as someone who has been dealing with a lot of pain in my "out of Chaz" life lately, I can resonate with what Iliamna's Quest was saying.

    Jokes designed to hurt people, even done in a spirit of fun, *can* backfire. And while I figured it out pretty quick, it still sort of left a bad taste in my mouth- while the hurt didn't last long, this was the second time this week that I logged onto a website, only to find something disparaging written about myself (the other instance was unrelated to Chaz). And I *know* it was aimed at everyone- but if you could even for a *second* imagine how it felt for those few moments to see that- after seeing the *latest* nasty thing written about me somewhere else, well, all I can say is that eventually little things start to chip away at you.

    Blue, I appreciate your humor and think you're a d@mn funny member of Chaz, but I found it kind of disheartening that you wouldn't even consider Melanie's post as having *any* sort of legitimacy. Rather, you chose to poke fun at her, and make her part of the joke as well. I wasn't going to write this until I realized, that maybe someone else on the board felt the same way I do- that after seeing multiple jokes on this board (some of which were imho sort of tasteless), and perhaps dealing with other issues in their life, might be saddened to see that their feelings were seen as illegitimate or "overly dramatic" simply because they didn't mirror that of the majority. I generally think of Chaz as a pretty accepting place...and one of those few message boards on the web where people do act as a family of sorts. Even just a nod to the idea that some people might have legitimately been upset by something like this (even if you believe they're too sensitive or what have you), would show a great deal of compassion. You can't know the scars that people carry on their hearts- so treating people with tenderness can really be a gift to them. Just a thought.

    Thanks for giving this some consideration guys. :)

    What did I say that was so wrong,exactly?
    Why pick me huh? Cause I'm new.
    You seriously are either a bully or a troll,or both.
    Get your facts straight before you start ripping on me,mkay?

    Where the hell did I say I let my dog control my house,buddy?!
    My dog needs cuddles,because she is really untrusting of humans and NEVER got cuddled in her last home.Where she was ABUSED.

    I seriously hope this is a sick joke,and I seriously hope you get out there and get a life instead of picking on new people over the internet.
     
  13. Jazzy, Sweetie, it is an April Fool's Joke!

    Read through the thread ;)

    Funny, it is STILL getting people!! I'm dying here!!!

    For Melanie and Tempra...

    Think of it this way, guys. They wanted to pick a subject that they KNEW would fire someone up. That is why they chose that subject. No hurt was intended at all :)

    Everybody will look back at this and laugh one day! I know I will!

    Hey Blue, Do I get a Lama?

    I thought it was funny. I didn't realize it was an April Fool's joke, I just thought to myself, where did this guy come up with that stuff, I didn't even read past the first post. Then I read that I had won something on another thread, that confused me for a minute, till I read further.

    All in all I'd say it took a devious mind to pull this one off. I'm glad it's the 2nd.
