Hello! I recently re-registered on the boards after a long absence, so I'm hoping I'm not being presumptuous to make a suggestion...
My suggestion is that there be a separate forum or sub-forum for "animal action" type posts. When I entered the Pets and Wildlife forum, I was hoping to be inspired by the bond people have with pets and wildlife, photos of wildlife, etc. (that is how I remember it mostly being a couple of years ago). To see posts relating to "canine mutilations" "dog dying for art" and racehorses being slaughtered immediately bring down my vibe
I'm not by any means saying that no attention should be paid to those issues, but perhaps they could be grouped together in another area?
I know I can always avoid reading them, bu† just seeing the headlines sometimes makes me almost physically ill.
