Thanks Guys

I hope this is okay for me to post. After a particularly frustrating experience on another site, I felt compelled to say this.

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you guys for being such awesome people. I've been on a lot of different forums over the years, covering a lot of different subjects, and this is honestly one of the most pleasant places I have ever posted.

The sheer rudeness an condescending and ignorant attitudes I have encountered at other forums (including other cat forums) makes me constantly discouraged about socializing on the internet.

Places like this, however, always manage to redeem my faith in humanity a little.

I originally joined this place and several other cat forums to ask health questions about my cats, and this is the only one I've felt truly compelled to stick around at. I've learned so much from the people here already, and appreciate their intelligence and support.

I just wanted to thank you all and say, keep it up.

Phew, that was so not what I expected when I saw the thread title. I thought it was going to be a "it was fun but i'm leaving" post.

I was all ready to beg you not to go.

That's so nice!

I'm still learning new things all the time. I joined because I was new to cats and had no clue about how to properly take care of Cinderella. And I certainly wouldn't have survived losing her without everyone's kindness and support.

Although, I must say, when I joined, I only had one cat!

I'm just saying.....

Cali, Cinderella, Cleo and Charlee

You're clearly weak willed

Seriously, I know what the OP is on about. Some forums are so unfriendly, and dumb. Here, whilst most members seem to be several shades of insane, most are fairly docile.

I know what you mean, saitenyo. I was a member of another cat forum prior to joining this one. My stay at the other forum was very brief for reasons I won't bother getting into, but you can well imagine. I find this one much more friendly and informative.

Yep, and yep. Although I do occasionally still pop over to the other forum, I very rarely post. As much as I enjoy helping people with their cat's nutrition and feeding, and as bad as I wince when I see misinformation given out, posting in that other forum simply isn't worth the hassle.

I have enough gray hair.

Catforum's flavor of insanity (ha, Huge!) is perfect.

I've broken my record for not getting throw of the forum with CF. I've never survived over a year anywhere else. Youz guys must be smarter so you irritate me less.

My other record was on the VWGTI forum. I think I lasted about 3 days. Seeing how stup-it the other owners are makes me want to sell the car

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

Agreed! I've pretty much stopped posting on my other forums I belong to (non-cat related), people are just to rude, and it gets old. Even after a brief time away from CF, due to lack of time, one can even come back, try to get caught up on things, and still feel welcome here. It's a great place to hang out!

I agree with you - people here on this forum are so nice. It's my first cat forum but I've been on others and the drama and rudeness that goes on in some of them is downright shameful.
