Like, like, like. This is SO true. It's incredibly frustrating for those of us that have been around for a long time (almost 4 years for me) to hear the same questions over and over: Is my mare pregnant? Why does she rear when I ask her to walk forward? Why is my colt trying to mount his sister? Have the vet palpate/US her. Check her teeth and back. He's old enough to breed and doesn't care that they're related.

Some of us, admittedly, forget that these members have not been around for long. We immediately pounce on them when we should try to explain first, and if we can't be polite about it, we need to stay away.

Having said that, I don't see a lot of rudeness here. Bluntness, yes, and sometimes obvious annoyance, but I think this is a very well-regulated community.

I'm sure every teacher, physician, preceptor, has heard the same questions over and over and over. Questions that to the teacher, physician, preceptor might think is a no-brainer. Questions I'm sure they get tired of answering.

They learn simple compassionate ways to answer the questions ... well, the GOOD ones do.

I think inexperienced people come on the board and look to "us" as horse "experts" and want to ask questions. If we can't find a way to answer these questions without getting annoyed and irritated with the newcomer, maybe we should avoid the thread altogether.

imo

Nope-just blunt, and says what many of us are thinking. Honestly, I was wondering if perhaps using the word "queen" in the OP's name was perhaps an indication of her attitude? Perhaps that is part of the problem? I have no idea, but I will guaranty that in the horse world there is little world for prima donnas. If the other folks around them don"t take care of it, a horse will, eventually.....(vision of face in mud puddle comes to mind.....)

As far as the asking of questions here being similar to a teacher, MD, etc.....that is a little different, in that all the poster has to do is at least TRY to use the little area at the top that says "search". That is all. Then if they don't understand the answer, don't find one that fits their situation, want further discussion-fine! No problem. But at least TRY to help yourself. You know the old saying "Give a man a fish........vs teach a man to fish.....". To not even try to me is blatantly lazy. Period. JMHO.

I don't know about anyone else but the search never works correctly for me, I'll try to find something and get what seems like every single post on the forum, with nothing to do with what I'm looking for.
Really though, a lot of the time people don't want to just read what other people are being told to do- because they can't jump in and ask their own questions specific to the issue, either they find it rude to do so or the thread is long dead. So I really don't mind new posters (or any posters) asking their questions to get their own answers and open up discussion (and make some friends). If it annoys you, you don't have to answer.

I usually do a search first....and yes it can throw a whole pile of unrelated threads at you.....but I must admit if its a safety thing, like soaking cubes and for how long, I will make a thread......

I feel bad for the OP-- yall are just pickin her apart now! they even disrespected the new admin! Its sad really.

If the OP wanted she could just google the answers to all her questions- she wanted to ask her own questions so she could get individualized answers- not every thread here has the same exact answers or conversations- not every one is the same- not every one has the same issues.. im glad the OP announced her leavin- maybe it will reinforce the use of manners around here!

I dont think theres anything funny about wantin to try out a new thing- and asking questions about what ya dont know the answers to.

The thing is toto.....I've read through her threads and can't see where she was attacked or anyone being rude....in fact I thought she was a good sport!
