First of all, this thread was resurrected from April. Second of all, this is a "discussion board" for people to share information. What if a dog owner doesn't realize the pain that's inflicted on their beloved with cropping and is glad to be educated to that fact? (I've known people who didn't think that was possible -- that there's pain -- and was then mortified knowing afterwards and wouldn't have done it). So, we're all entitled to our opinions and this is a forum on which to share them. And I personally don't see another person acting "high and mighty to sit up on some throne and judge". But, I guess you don't agree with what a discussion board is for -- don't want conflict (and it's always amicable here, IMO). Everyone agrees with everybody. Well, life doesn't work that way, so I wish you the best of luck in finding another discussion board where everyone agrees with everyone on all subjects. Best wishes.
