I don't know quite what you mean by this. I think the overstated use
of killfiles is a feeble ploy, but I don't get myself worked up
because people do it. I'm just expressing an opinion. You should
recall that I have also challenged Bookie about her lurid comments re
necklacing someone with a burning tire.

In fact, I am wholly consistent in my outlook. As far as I'm
concerned, you and Bookie and Lynne are peas in a pod... truculent cat
ladies with unbounded hostility toward anyone who falls short of your
cat-welfare standards, and plenty of hostility left over to direct at
one another. I call it as I see it. It doesn't mean I'm upset, or
that I don't like you.


I've had Bookie kill-filed long before I said anything on the forum about
it. When a person consistently offers me no return on my investment in
time, I'm simply not going to read them anymore. BFD.

even more mad when people choose to stop listening.


It's not even just the abrasiveness, really, it's the huge steaming piles
of crap she writes. I have no time for that.

For a mature cat, a two-day weekend outside in summer doesn't seem
outrageous. *Every* weekend is more iffy, I agree. But several weeks
is outrageous, probably meeting the legal definition of abandonment.

Have you called the police or animal control to see about filing a
cruelty complaint.


As much as I believe it's cruel, they've broken no laws here. I think the
law sucks, but my county is a farming community and the AC laws have been
derived from farming practice. We don't even have a leash law in my
county.

Calling either the AC or the police in this case would only have served to
have the cat picked up, maybe.

That said, I think it's irresponsible as hell to leave a pet unsupervised
outdoors for *any* length of time.

Bookie was addressing Lynne, but Lynne supposedly has killfiled
Bookie, so I bumped the post.


Well don't bother. I have her kill-filed for a reason, and I'm not
inclined to read her blather even when quoted. -- Lynne


thats really quite pathetic and puerile of you then, typical yank
ignorance; I don't like what I hear so I am just going to out my
hands over my ears and refuse to listen especially when other peolpe
have a different opinion to me about something


Bookie,


I don't think it's the fact that you have different opinions as to why
you are killfiled, I think it's how you present your opinion. If you
come off as abrasive and judgmental and as not having any respect for
the person you are talking to -- then that's your choice, Just don't
get even more mad when people choose to stop listening.


Rhonda


Hmmm. It's true that Bookie tosses out some flame bait, with her
comments about Americans, fat people, putting a burning tire around
someone's neck, etc. etc. But so what???


I find it interesting to note the things you choose to say "so what"
about, and the things you choose to go all "old-lady-knickers-in
-a-knot" about.

openly stating that you have killfiled someone is rather sad, it is
kind of the grown up newgroup equivalent of "we don't want to play
with you, nur nur!!!" (sticks thumb on nose and waggles fingers at
someone).
and if someone wants to express themselves in a certain way ie by
verbalising the anger within them openly then thats fine by me. half
the time people say things which they wish woudl happen, eg someone
who shoots at people's cats being run out of town with a burning tyres
round their neck, but it doesn; tmean they woud actually do it, or
were some of you not aware of that? someties beign able to vent ones
spleen in such a way is a good outlet for anger and may prevent the
person actually dong somethgin harmful to themsleves or others because
they have not managed to release their pent up aggression in another
way because of what narrowminded imbeciles who like to censor
everything you write will say about it.

you can say what you like about what i write, i couldn't care less, in
fact it really amuses me that you take me so seriously that you
actually go to the extent of killfiling me for it. What also makes me
laugh is your attitude towards my statements when your country and
culture is supposed to uphold the rights of peolpe to enjoy freedom of
speech and respect what others have to say, so excuse me if I find
your attitude a little hypocritical, ladies.

OK. once more into the breech...

What you say above is cargo cult science, like a bamboo radio antenna.
It might look like it could work, but it doesn't.

If you doubt me, take five minutes to research the techniques used by
anger-management specialists. They don't tell their clients to vent
their spleens. They teach them to use relaxation techniques and control
their reaction to whatever triggers their anger.

Here are just a few links:

http://www.allaboutlifechallenges.or...techniques.htm
http://ezinearticles.com/?Try-These-...ques&id=130476
http://www.apa.org/topics/controlanger.html
http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/library/MH/00102.html

There are any number of books and other resources that address this
topic, and they all say the same thing.

never heard of the cathartic effect? talking cure? and anyway it works
for me, and quite a few people actually, having a good rant about
something allows us to get it all out of our system and air our
displeasure about something and helps us to relieve tension. thing is
being a bloke you probably will no understand that as the male of the
species is notorious for not being able to verbally communicate
feelings about anything, be it good or bad, and probably do nto
understand why females tend to find talking about stuff and 'getting
stuff off their chest' so therapeutic.
I will bet that all your books were probably written by similarly
emotionally constipated blokes who also like to generalise about how
the rest of the world works and assume that everyone ticks just like
them

Bookie, why bother? Charlie lives to condescend. As long as he can
continue to sneer at the overly emotional "rabid cat women" he can
feel better about himself. I plan to leave him to it.

Well, this is progress isn't it? Now the two of you are talking to each
other, which is what like-minded people ought to do.

I'm glad I could be of service.

doesn't it worry you then that there may be someone out there who
coudl be of a similar mindset to me? someone who may also enjoy
verbalising inner anger occasionally despite all the 'professionals'
you have cited who tell you that such an activity is really unhealthy?
