The Horse Forum Team has actually been discussing what to do about the fact that it seems members can't discuss Parelli in peace. On the one hand we want members to be able to discuss their interests without being... let's say harassed for lack of a better word at the moment... by others, and on the other hand we understand the concern of experienced members who have seen what embracing Parelli and turning a blind eye to other training methodologies can lead to.

That may be the case, but it also may be something members need to discover for themselves. It may also be the case that certain members are more interested in Parelli than they are in exceptional horses. I'm not necessarily saying the two are mutually exclusive.
What does everyone think of adding a designated Parelli sub forum where members who have chosen Parelli can discuss Parelli without interjection from others? To address concerns you and others would likely have with such a scenario, RiosDad, there is a lot of information in many different areas here. If somebody were to choose to ignore everything
else here in favor of only what they find in a Parelli sub forum, your posts would likely not dissuade that person anyway.
People do use Parelli. People do enjoy Parelli. It may not be considered the best, the safest, or the smartest training methodology by everyone, but what does everyone think about allowing those that have chosen it a place to discuss it? As a compromise
, what if there were only one sticky in the Parelli sub forum and it was a detailed thread warning members who visit the Parelli sub forum of the alleged downsides of using Parelli
? Would those of you who are opposed to Parelli and post in Parelli threads consider that a fair compromise which would convey your message to everyone interested in Parelli without requiring you to interject in Parelli related threads? That would allow you to convey your message and allow members still interested in Parelli to discuss it.
I don't know if that will bring peace to the Middle East, but it would certainly help here. What does everyone think of the above?
