: 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.

Jane, you always have great advice and it's a good thing that you take the time to respond. I saw Jess's post on glider isle and she was out of line to resort to name calling. I just think it would be nice if you (and so many others) could just offer your advice/hints/suggestions and if you must call her a name back, do it privately. My mother use to call it "washing your laundry in public". Maybe there is something I'm missing, if so I apologize. ted-
