I would like to know what criteria and reasoning went into the decision to remove the signature. Will links to other sites also be prohibited?
GRF promotes responsible breeding, without which, our breed would fall apart. The reason I totally agree with his signature being removed, (although it's now back
), is because the site he links to has Golden pups for sale from questionable breeders.
We get a lot of lurkers that visit and they will unwittingly go to his site and believe that the breeders, since they were linked from GRF, they must be reputable. Not saying everyone will feel this way or be duped, but if even one person is led to purchase one of these pups, we, as a forum, have failed at providing the best information and resources on the breed we love.
That is why his siggy, at least the link, should not be allowed, IMO.
