Al, I’m not sure about others, but I’ll continue to participate in ALL forums here. The frustration you see here and what’s led to many being driven away is the dilution of information due to the 10 or so, “How do I get huge?” posts every day. I don’t think that’s being elitist. I think it’s wanting to have a great forum for experienced trainers that others can learn from as well.
Like I said, if I say something in the Dog Pound and somebody has a question about it, I’ll be happy to discuss it outside that forum, and I’m sure many others will feel the same way.
