Of all of the Rover boards this one seems the most laid back, respectful, and helpful. Lets keep it that way. If you have an issue, PM the guy, Im sure most things can be worked out etc.

As for post count/member # etc, hell, it doesn't mean anything. You don't go to an AA meeting to argue who was drinking first, or for how long.

X2 on Rij...he is a teddy bear and hands down one of the best resources for finding information (almost scary at times)! Not sure what your overall experience with forums is but as others have said, it is best to let comments that may bother you roll off as there is often a lack of tone or in some cases a language barrier involved.

X3 on josh ... He's well versed in the use of sarcasm and irony ... Unfortunately some people's computers don't render those fonts too well.

I moved it to chit chat, but Josh if you want to list the threads (here or PM) I'll merge them - don't have time to go looking for them.

Reasons to ruild your own

I saw this link today and thought to pass it on.

It is very graphic to rover lovers and may not be suitable for 110 lovers.

Nice article to read as well
