Well folks, I've had enough of this Site, where people post dead animals in their pictures, with smiles on their faces. Don't they realize that killing for fun offends many. It's not as though these "killers" need to do so to exist.

Technical advice is what I shall come for in the future.

Good luck to you all.

Penny.

Hope you stay Penny. I don't like hunting myself, but you have to understand that killing animals is necessary for food. In many ways, Toddles is less hypocritical than the rest of us. I eat meat but I don't do the killing. If I had to, I guess I could, but I'm glad someone else does it for me.

Penny, I hope you don't leave because of this one thing. I don't know which picture you are referring to .. Perhaps you have other reasons too.
but You have many friends here who truly care about you and it would really be upsetting to say the least if you left.
I hope you don't leave at all! Please don't.
(((Hugs))) Bea

Tuppence ! - Stand up! - You're walking away!
Anyone can walk away. It's called taking the easy way out.
"Don't like what they're saying or doing? OK. I'll take my ball away"!
Aw come on! - How will I ever get to know you if you clear off??

Penny: I know of the pic of which you speak and that member was nice enough to remove it just for you. Now what does that say to you....you are respected and your feelings do matter to us! You are NOT leaving random if I have to swim across the ocean, find you and drag you back to it! Bad enough Pat left! I miss her in my hockey thread and fun game! Pity she felt trounced upon and left because of one person's comments about Fun Game. Don't let anything or anyone run you away from here Penny! Chin up...grab that cuppa tea and get your butt back here! Besides Gibble and a few others...who will keep the hockey thread around! ME! :D It needs your comments too! :) Take care and love you friend. I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner...I just didn't know what to say! angel :)

Joe, I doubt that I shall return.

Has it not occured to Toddles that he is operating under double standards. On the one hand he complains about the way that people treat each other on the site and says he is staying away; yet on the other he continues to post a picture that causes offence to even one other person on the site. This proves what - that killing animals for fun proves virility? This "mind-set" is way beyond me.

Good luck to you, any way.

Penny.

:mad:You know what Penny. This is what I think.. Forgive me for being blunt but I think you are being extremely unreasonable and selfish about this. you are taking yourself away from us ... according to you because toddles has a different belief system than you do, and has done something that offends you.
To me it's this way... you seem to feel it's only about the way you feel, that the feelings of all the rest of us ...about you... don't enter into it at all! You my friend can do what ever you want. it's your prerogative to leave if you want to.
To me however the feelings of real live people who have been your friends should take priority over one photo, that offends you, of a dead animal. For the record
I do not approve of killing anything for sport.. and I believe that all animals have feelings just like humans do.. However if you are so upset about one members practices .. That you are willing to blow the rest of us off for that. Respect is a two way street then you are a different woman than I thought you were Penny. Unlike some people here I do not look at others in this forum as something other than real people. you are not being sensitive to all of the other people here who respect you.
( you can't always have your own way you know!)

Penny...Is it fair to put this kind of pressure on Toddles? You've pretty much made it clear that either the picture goes or you go. You are quite willing to put the sole responsibility on him alone for your departure....perhaps you are hoping that he will draw criticism from the other members? Why would you want such a thing? Will you please try to understand how much it means to him? Try to look beyond what you dont like about him and see what is plain to the rest of us.

Please dont be angry and go away from the people that obviously love you here and will be sad if you leave.

now Im not sure which picture you're referring to. The picture in toddles profile was changed from the deer pic to one of him sitting in front of his computer and its still the same as it was last yesterday.

If you are referring to the pic of him & the deer with his head exchanged in the "average age of tsg members" thread...then that wasnt toddles' doing.

Some will stay no matter what, some will go at the drop of a post, and some will remain ambivalent. Just like in the non-cyber world. What you choose to do is up to you. I'd like for you to stay, and if you go I'll miss you, but life goes on, and it's too short for you to stay if you're really uncomfortable. Be well, whatever you decide to do.:)

Penny,

Toddles has changed his picture. I think there are other photos of it that others have copied and posted and he can't do anything about that. For an 18 year old boy (and yes, he is still just a boy), he has shown remarkable maturity to change his photo in concern for your feelings. If that's not good enough for you, then who is the 18-year old and who is the mature adult here???

I agree with Bea--if you leave now, you are being unreasonable and putting your own feelings above those of the rest of us and of Toddles.

I hope you stay.

I've been attempting to stay out of this mess.....but I WILL point out, that even though the other members cannot see "HIDDEN" users, the MODS and ADMIN can.......;)
