Yeah, after I was gone. Conveniently so....

Sorry, but I feel that I am being singled out and I wasnt the only person who noticed this. I think its because my views are difference then most here. I just posted how I felt. I do like it here, I just want to not feel like I am being singled out. Hopefully, me expressing how I feel does not get me banned....

Rate your experience here at Golden Retriever Forum.

Although many forums have issues with hostility, this one has a few with censoring people's opinions when even remotely harsh. I have seen sensible bannings and ridiculous bannings that are plain out hipocracies and are very questionable. There is ganging up but this is a forum and I hardly think you can do anything about that, but when it leads to ridiculous unreasonable bans as I have seen in the past it makes me question the forum. I have been on many forums in the past and although many seem more directly hostile I still find this forum has many issues that make it more indirectly hostile than others.

This is easily the least hostile forum I've been a part of.

Despite a few issues, I wouldn't know half the stuff I know about Goldens and dogs in general if I had not found this forum. I've looked around for others that compare, and came up empty.

A reminder that this thread is just to rate your overall experince here at GRF. Any discussions of a members banning have now been edited out of this thread, as stated in GRF's rule 15 " any discussions or threads about a member's warning or banning are prohibited. "

For those that may not like the board rules I am sorry but they are what they are and they will be enforced.


Any further discussions of this nature in any post or thread on this board could bring about further action from the GRF Moderating Team.

What browser are you running in? This might be a pretty solvable issue.

Do you have cookies blocked or any security setting like that? My guess is that GRF maintains your login with a cookie. If you set your browser to allow cookies from GRF, that may solve your problem. I'm just guessing, though.

This is the ONLY site with which there is a problem.

Sorry - was just trying to be helpful. I obviously can't fix anything with the site itself, but I thought there might be some settings you could tweak in order to decrease your annoyance. I'm not having the problems you are with malware warnings or logins.

I had problems like Swampcollie and the moment I became a paid subscriber my problems were solved.
