Well, I am relatively new to cavies, so I am searching to make sure that I have the most accurate information possible. I have not had a chance to read through everything yet. I have to say that the grammar and content are a little off-putting. As a high school English teacher, things like bad grammar and spelling tend to jump out at me. It is one thing for posts to contain glaring instances of illiteracy, but when the home page and rules sections are so chock full of blatantly poorly worded sentences and such completely awful spelling, I can't say that I feel like reading anymore. Might I suggest a little spell checking once in awhile? God, if they only made red pens for the internet.

We are a nice happy site.

Maybe that should be done in a PM not on a public board?

I'm all for happy and fun, but one has to wonder if the staff cannot even bother to run a spell check or break open a book to address even the most basic grammar before writing rules, how much reading did they honestly bother to do before posting all of the care information? They are allowing a mod to openly post about breeding her two year-old fat sow when she has already rehomed several of her pigs and cannot even afford to feed them half the time, much less the cost of emergency vet care.

This is exactly why I was afraid to join a forum.

Please do. Most of them need it; however, I can safely say that most of them write better than the staff here. I did not realize that being truthful equated to rudeness. I hope the praying cavy never dyes his hair green. The church would certainly frown upon that.

As am I, BJ. So, we have a fat, bitter loser, a grouchy liar, and a member of the World's Oldest Profession, and a mostly-illiterate staff. Quite the crew here. Does anyone actually know anything about cavies.

Well I know a lot about cavies. Apparently, partical information is okay though. Your tone isn't very nice. I also don't think BJ refers to the worlds oldest profession, she is obviously BJ's mom, duhhhh!

Does anyone like peanut butter, I a seriously craving it right now!

You think that I don't know anything about cavies. I have owned 22 cavies at one time, every single one of the got great care, best life ever. All nice and plump to. I think you need to get your rudeness out now. This stupid, what are you doing making fun of people, is that your life.

Oh well if we can not spell, it may be the way we type, or the keyboard, who cares, it is the internet.

Apparently, not you, dear.

Excuse me, I do not need you to quote my post and correcting them Who cares, I did that on purpose.

I know how to spell CAVIES, and I am not stupid. You go around treating everyone stupid around here. You don't like it then go to another forum that allows you to correct peoples spellings and GRAMMAR ENGLISHTEACHER.

Geeze give everyone a break here.
