-_- I am sorry, I have really tried to ignore and keep my mouth shut, but I cannot do it any longer.

The atmosphere of this forum has changed dramatically over the last few months. We have gotten many new members and that is wonderful!!! We had 99 people online at one time last week!


There are many that have joined us that are obvious supporters of MO. If that is the case, that is wonderful…but please do not come over here and bring the SAME attitude that most of us ran away from over there. Joe does not “moderate” the posts as Jay does over there. We have freedom of speech and expression, and until recently that has not been a problem. Suddenly we have people being offensive, others taking offense, and people are giving and receiving what many of you are calling “personal attacks”. If you want to see/hear about personal attacks, ask Joe to share with you the personal attacks and threats that have been made on/to him by the "moderator" over there! Those attacks and threats are just a few of the very reasons that I, along with several others refuse to support the MO site. If you like the way it is run over there, that is wonderful….most of us don’t.

In this forum we are allowed the freedom to be open, honest, silly, crazy, informative with brands, websites, and even talk about non-maltese nonsense…THAT IS WHY WE LIKE IT HERE!!!! Some of you obviously are above our silliness and our regular "pet owner" ramblings... and if that is the case, ignore it. Some of us are afraid to ask questions any more, (just like we were at MO)-because somewhere in the midst of the replies, there is going to be someone giving us holy heck, when all we did was ask a simple question!

There are lots of people on here now that are VERY knowledgeable about the breed and canines in general…that is wonderful, and I am sure you have a wealth of information to share, but in sharing that, please make sure that you are not talking “down” to the ones of us that are just regular old maltese “pet” owners that love our babies and want the best for them. I don’t want to make anyone really mad, but good-grief, some of us have really had enough!!! I don’t want to be ugly and say “go back to MO”-but that is the way some of us are feeling IF you are going to bring that “better than the average pet owner” attitude with you. Feel free to share you knowledge and expertise with us, just don’t make us feel inferior in the process.

I am sure there is something that I have left out, but I am going to go ahead and post this and get it off my chest.

yeah, i think im one of the members who just likes to goof around and show pics and share stories with all u guys, and im no expert about maltese health issues etc etc,

and i might not know much about the maltese breed even if Jong-ee is my 3rd maltese , i do know that i love her to death and will do anything for her to make her happy and learn more about the breed everyday, and sharing everything with u guys makes me happy too coz everybody here loves maltese, dont they?? :lol: heheheh


i dont think ppl need to look down on ppl and attack them, we have enough "rudeness" out there, why bring more to it here..? everybody just wants to learn, theres no reason to attack them if they want to learn something

ppl should be nice to ppl !!!! :lol:

I have to say how cute your little Jong-ee looks in her pretty pink sweater. I love the look.

As for rudeness, maybe I've been successful in avoiding those posts (or maybe it's me they're talking about and I just don't realize it! I hope not...) I love it here, everyone is so nice, and has such wonderful information to offer.

My middle schooler teaches me new words every day. What's really funny are the expressions we used to use when we were kids....when I say them to her, she looks at me like I'm the world's greatest geek.
