    I find it unfair that I don't have the ability to delete a thread that I make...

    BUT when a moderator goes and breeds their dogs... gets questioned... admits they lied about a lot of things... THEN they delete their thread like it never happened and life carries on...

    I'm just kind of hurt that a long standing member I liked and agreed about a lot of things lied about where her dogs came from (and made up other dogs in the process).

    So... should a moderator be able to delete their own threads if they don't like where they're headed? If someone lies, they should be able to step up to the plate and confess the truth... I think we all deserve that from this member.

    I agree... I was kinda shocked to see the thread gone... People werent really attacking like in alot of other threads that never even get closed. they were just trying to find answers.

    I don't like deleting threads at all. if you MUST do something just lock it.

    this is a BIG point on contention on another board I'm on. anyone can delete a thread they made at any time and this really pisses a lot of people off because people put time and effort into posting on them and then POOF it's like it never exsisted.

    I completely agree...

    it's just a cowardly thing to do. If you lie and feel you need to delete a thread without giving answers to the people you supposedly care about, it's just... lame.

    I just hope she's not leaving. I want to see the outcome of the litter, and call me a bad person, but I may even want one of the pups.

    Locking Threads for no good reason

    Why was my thread locked?

    I was just asking a simple question about MODERATORS.

    Aren't people who are well respected on this forum the ones offered positions as moderators?

    I just don't understand why this moderator is being allowed to cop out on members.

    Did I miss something in the last few minutes of posting? I only took a pee break. Things always fly right over my head.

    I guess Foxywench is allowed to lie about things and we are all supposed to be happy with her answers.

    She gets a free pass.

    The only reason for that thread to exist (and now this one) was to try to make trouble.

    It is not your job to determine the job of the moderators. If you don't like it, you can PM MeatyTreats.

    This does NOT sit with me.

    I'm usually not one to question moderators. I appreciate everything you guys do, really, and I typically never have a problem- and if I do, it's minor and I do not really care enough to speak up.

    However, I do not think it is over the top to question that a moderator has the option to edit a thread that is 3 years old and then simply makes one disappear just because her breeding ethics and ethics are being questioned. As far as I can tell, the thread about her accidental breeding was not a witch hunt. Members of this forum were concerned BECAUSE it was an established member. What is wrong with simply wanting to know the truth? Someone even mentioned in a very polite way to post some proof of the dogs pedigrees- and even mentioned that, of course, she wasn't ordered to, but it would just be nice to regain some trust.

    And now that Jessie questions the ability to delete threads just because they make the OP uneasy, who happens to be a mod? I am sorry, but locking her threads without reason and just telling her to pm MeatyTreats is unacceptable. I doubt he has the time or the patience to deal with this- that's what the mods are for. But to deem every mod as untouchable and unquestionable- that is outrageous.

    Now please feel free to lock or delete this- but I believe Jessie and me are not the only ones who are upset and it would be nice to discuss this.

    I agree also, although I didn't get to read the thread when it got out of hand.

    I'm not very comfortable with a mod that does this kind of things to be honest (or lies for that matter).

    I'm gonna ditto this. Nothing worse than a mod who feels they're above everyone else.

    Agreed. I really enjoy this forum as a resource, I don't want my appreciation for it to decline.
