I'm not sure what else you can suggest we do, other than being rude and bullying towards people looking for help. Clearly we can't go running over and rescue all these birds that are supposedly being abused. All we can do is try to help.

By the way....speaking of sticking up for 'friends' on these forums. Are you and finchbinch close friends? Just seems a little odd that you both came over here preaching at the same time.
No, I just agree with a bunch of they've been saying today! If you can find a way for me to prove it to you I will! Been lurking for about 2.5 years and I finally got around to making an account

Also constructive criticism and letting someone know they haven't been doing something correctly isn't bullying/harassment

My point is that I don't think these criticisms have any merit as it relates to talk Parrotlets or represent the frequent posters and moderators on the forum. I also think my reply was a thorough and respectful representation of my counter arguments and views on the OP's concerns, and I hope it read that way.
The general tone of the topic seemed to suggest we pander to bad practices, which is untrue, and that we out to have a "heavy hand" or "get angry" just to paraphrase. And I disagree with both. If that was not the general message being communicated than my apologies, that's just how it appeared to me. Simply voicing my disagreement does not = "taking it personally".

I do feel the need to say some of the condescending comments directed toward my response are unnecessary, and to that I righty take offense. This is exactly what our forum strives to avoid in how we approach each situation. I request that everyone kindly refrain from such comments in all threads, not just this one.

I meant no offense to you personally, JP3, and I'm sorry that what I said sounded condescending.

The issue I was facing was a regular member and this is why I felt the need to point it out. You are definitely allowed to feel differently, and I'm not asking for anger. I'm saying sometimes when there are poor decisions made I believe people are afraid to let others know in case their personal social status goes down, and info becomes less and less helpful. That's all. :/

Thank you I appreciate your understanding to what I'm was trying to communicate. I'm sorry you seem to be having some frustration over recent posts im unaware of. I'm hopeful you don't feel one or two people ever represent our forum as a whole. Besides, there are always plenty of knowledgeable people with constructive criticism around here to balance things out. IMHO

You should know that our forum has agreed upon rules of civility that you can find here.
http://talkparrotlets.com/showthread.php?t=1883
There have been issues that have arisen, and we have tried our best to keep the forum according to the rules.
Historically, there were times when TalkParrotlets was not the welcoming and encouraging community that it is today. It is a conscious choice of the forum to learn from the past and keep our community welcoming.

Speaking personally, not as a moderator, there has never been a time when I felt that a bird was being abused or neglected that I did not speak up. However, I am very careful with my wording, always trying to give constructive criticism. If I can be that person's friend, they are much more likely to actually improve the life of their bird than if I am aggressive. That is my goal - to improve the lives of birds and their people using the most effective means. Kindness gets results, so I bite my tongue online and turn my anxiety and sometimes anger into gentle, easy coxing. I hope that my sacrifice of not showing anger has helped birds and people to live better lives.
Just because someone is being gentle, doesn't mean they are not outraged at situations. But if the goal is helping people better care for birds, then I need them to want to listen to me. Which is why I consciously offer "honey."
