What a drag

I’m not one to rant about things in a blog like this, but lately, I have been at my wits end over some of the unclassy and condescending remarks made by folks in forums. Some of these things being said are so off the wall, harsh and baseless accuasations… I really just take pause and can’t believe someone felt the need to write such crap!

It makes me wonder why I even participate in forums. I understand there is a loss of communication when people work with the written word, but when things are being explicitly said that bash and rip others, especially ones that can’t defend themselves, there is no mistaking the meaning of the post.

Whenever I write online, I really work at making the language unoffensive, that the point is clear, and that I am being respectful of the other persons. Now, I may not always accomplish it, and there are times when I get pretty fired up, but I still TRY to maintain composure and sensibility.

People will say that keyboard commandos feel protected by the anonymity of the internet, and that met face to face probably wouldn’t say a thing. If the conversation was in person, and NOT in public like a forum, I for one do know that people will say whatever the hell they want.

Let’s just say, there are many things that I want to say and would say in person, but that I don’t even try to hint at on the internet. 😉

Small face lift…

Just finished a quick face lift to the site to give it a little more oomph.  You may also notice a small addition to the navigation bar on the right.  The "What’s New" section is just a little spot where we’ll keep links to the newest content on the site; whether it  be articles, pictures, or anything else that may get added off of the main page.  Enjoy!

Wow, check that out.

I always like to review the visits we get to this site, and by and large, the rats are pulling in the most traffic. I can’t say I’m surprised really, when I was using my Xanga blog as an outlet for my rat articles, I was getting hundreds of hits daily. Search words from google and other search engines really bring in the traffic.

Well, in keeping with the rat knowledge, I’ve posted an article on how to breed African soft furred rats. It’s pretty simple, but I hope it’s easy enough to understand. As always, feel free to leave a comment, I love reading them!
