i was banned from a forum for saying 'crap' for 2 years on aquaticcommunity.com, got a message saying its a family forum and the decision will not be reversed...
tbh there was a lot of words that i could have useed that were a lot near the mark and in the uk that word is a real toned down version to what it could mean (if it means summin else elsewhere and offends im sorry).
i am a community organiser in a gaming community (which is 1 down from the leader) and know that if you lead like you are the god or let your status go to your head then you will have an empty community, everyone should have the freedom of speech and should be able to give advice good or bad, should be able to take the constructive criticism when it comes with out sulking like a baby, we can all be wrong in our advice and i would hope that if someone feels my advice is bad then say so, politely, no need to jump all over someone and try to make them look the size of an ant.... (not that any one has)
we can all agree to disagree, if someone does disagree with you, you shouldnt get the hump with it, take note and move on, if you disagree with them you have the right to say so, thats when it becomes a discussion, a bit like now... this has become a discussion, no one is jumping down anyones throat.
If you was to start clamping down on what can or cant be said, within reason obviously, you can lose more members that way as nobody likes to be silenced in life or on any forums.

Very pretty fish chard. Too bad I'm only breeding Imbellis. Well, not really, but they are pretty.

I agree. This is a very wonderful conversation. I am insulted that you would call it a fight. I agree. let's make something of it. This thread is too peaceful for a complaint thread.

I didn't start this to put anyone down but to bring attention to the oneupmanship that was going on and the posting of stickys that were meant to be factual articles on the subject of breeding and the raising of fry. Neither of which are based on fact, personal experience or explain proceedures properly. They needed to be edited for content, detailed desciption and probably spelling. They were just allowed to be posted as is. That kind of mis-information and misguided enthusiasm is what I'm talking about. There's enough confusing, contradicting and false information out there on the internet as it is.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! I want one of each. How much are you charging for them, if you still have them? I would like young ones so that I can enjoy them, but not too young as I am still not real experienced with bettas yet. I have to see what I have after I get what I need for my cats, rabbits, and household, but I think I might be able to afford a couple of them.

Wonderful specimens Chard, I can hardly raise fry to adulthood, much less hope they turn out as beautiful as those two. What colors were the parents?

I had to think and go back almost 5 years to look these up.
