Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I have only been a member of this site for one week and I am horrified at the thought of entering into a discussion!
I joined because I have always liked Gundogs, especially Setters of all varieties and have been thinking of owning one or maybe even two.
My friend who is a member said to me a few months ago "Bel, I have found a lovely site for Setter enthusiasts and the people on there are so nice and friendly".
I am sorry to say, after reading through some of the latest discussions, I don't share her opinion at all!
All I have read are aggressive, verbal attacks on members who do not share the opinions of a few regular contributors who gang up on anyone who dares to disagree with their point of view.
I don't know how many members there are on here, but it seems the whole site is run by a few 'know alls' who delight in making other members valuable contributions to discussions a very unpleasant experience for them.
Some on here will probably say I should hold no opinions at all because I am a 'newbie' to this site.
Well sorry, I loath bullying in any shape or form and that's what I see happening on here!
Maybe I will test the water on a site for a different gundog breed because from what I have read so far on here, setter breeders are not people I would like to have any more contact with.
Margaret thank you so much for this information. Being new I did not know I could do that. I have now closed my discussion.
Hello Annabel ..
Welcome to ES ..
I'm a setter lover with whole my hart and I meet other setter fans every month when we go walking together ..
And in the almost 6years there was never any kind of trouble between the people ..
Words on paper ( this site ) are noiseless an can be wrong understood while the writer only means the best ..
And discusions you don't like you can ignore ...like i do...
Please take some time to observe and you will see that it is a nice place to read ...
Respons on the things you like ,and you wil have a wonderfull time here..
You know, I never think it's a good idea to slam the door when you leave!
Sometimes you have to go back later for something important and it can be a little embarrassing.
