I posted here so taht everyone can read my post. and i was stating a response to Jess's irresponsibility. If you look at Jess' post on glider Island she attacks me as being uneducated about gliders. I quote "You are being over protective and lame because you have faulty advise". My advice about petsitting is very valid and I urge everyone who needs to to listen. Being busy isnt a crime - animal abuse is.
: Jess left her Email address, if we must attack her personally why don't we just Email her, and post the constructive/informative info here? If you don't like my post just Email me, I always include an address. If all of you had left an address Jess could respond with out turning this into a lot of "playground posturing". Heck I could have Emailed you directly but you don't leave me that option. Please note: I'm not saying your wrong, (they are your feelings after all) or that Jess is right, just that sniping is inappropriate.
