I want to let you know that I think you are doing this with finesse..within the last few days your life and what you belive in has been questioned, by what seems like a complete stranger, and only today you have been compared to a murderer…WOW..what else is there to say?
I see you as a friend and want you to know that I admire you, for what you are, what you believe in and how you do it, living your dream, unlike so many americans today...
I don't hesitate to believe for one minute that you would've made a wonderful foster for those two Eskis whether short term or for the long run, and I know I am not alone in thinking this.
Alright, I think I have pretty much had enough. I believe that if you are going to quote someone or refer to a comment they have made then you need to make the time and effort to quote them accurately and properly. Clearly some of the users of this forum are not able to do that. In fact that will take anothers post no matter what the intent and context is and change or twist it to suit their own purpose.
If my next comments get me kicked off the forum then so be it.
Some of the comments here really make us wonder if the people responding even read the complete post.
Where in any post in this thread under this topic did Vicki complain about being questioned? Even if she had, don't you think others who are members of this forum have a right to ask questions? Why is it that there are some people who just cannot understand that this is a chat forum and its reasonable to ask questions of one another? When did it become a crime to inquire about another forum members methods.
We do challenge any of you to search many of the other posts and different topics. Questions are asked daily. Methods are discussed daily.
Just for the record, I do not seem like a complete stranger, I am a complete stranger. You have not met a person just because you have chatted on line, exchanged some email, or had a conversation on the phone. You only converse and exchange thoughts and idea's with them through fonts on your screen. The only way you meet someone is face to face in reality, and it certainly takes much more than a few face to face meetings to really know them. Even then you only get to see what they allow you to see.
Second to the same person that made the above comment, cut and paste where Vicki was compared or where it even was insinuated that she was a murderer. Did you even read the complete post or sentence.
Let us help you out by re-posting the entire paragraph in quotes below:
"It is great to know that you would not question Vicki, but we don't know her, we don't know her situation and even if we did, we still might question her, depending on the situation. Recently we met someone, worked with them on several occasions, thought they were okay, and later they murdered someone (allegedly) we were on NBC dateline in regard to it! We would not hesitate to question, in order to provoke thought, and to get more of through understanding on the subject. It is unfortunate you find that objectionable."
We wrote this paragraph simply to make a point to some of those who feel that because asked questions about her methods and situation somehow she was threatened and felt the need to come to her defense. Just as a side comment this has the appearance of high school type behavior to us.
OK, Since some of the poster or posters in thread think that just because they met or talked to someone on the internet and feel good about that person or have posted in regard to it, that it should somehow automatically give credibility to the other person. If others of us have not met that poster in person, or have first hand knowledge of who that person is, then only by asking questions and attempting to communicate with that person can get any kind of idea or enough information to form any kind of opinion. Even then because of limited information that opinion could be wrong.
The point of our post was that recently, even though Miranda and I had worked with a person on many occasions, including meeting their kids, having dinner with them, and interacting with them under several circumstances that indicated that the person we met was intelligent, honest, hard working, loving parent, we found out that sometimes when you think you know a person you really do not. We learned that lesson when NBC called and interviewed us for Dateline and let us know that this person had been had been arrested for murder. Again the only reason we mentioned this is because we wanted to make the point that you really never know anyone.
At no time was Vicki mentioned or compared to this woman but apparently a poster here felt the need to take our comments out of context and twist the facts presented to make a point to suit their own purpose. Again this smacks of high school type behavior and what other purpose could a post like that have except to stir the pot in an attempt in instigate trouble.
We also get the impression that for a few posters here, some of this is a carry over because they did not care for our comments in another thread that discussed Fanconi dogs. We wonder why it bothers some so much that we have a different methodology, different point of view, or difference of opinion. For god sakes its a chat board. Its a place to learn, inquire, and exchange ideas. Apparently somewhere along the way, a few posters have forgotten that.
