I am still here, checking in and reading everyone's posts. 

 

Too bad the chat room didn't work...maybe we could meet there again if so. Last time I tried, it did not work.

I joined in 2008 and there were many, many nice and helpful members and I got wonderful answers to my questions and suggestions for solving my horse problems.  I checked in almost every day.  I dropped out because of  a few members who consistently posted and were hostile, combative and just plain angry and I eventually became hesitant to post anything and tired of reading their unpleasant remarks.  I think the moderator of this site should have done something to stricken these members because they ultimately led to the near demise of ABN.

I had a similar trajectory. Joined during a big deal of rescues, trauma, hostilities. Amid that was still a functioning site that was fulfilling to my  needs for info and community. But like Shahker's Ma, the attitudes prevalent made me not post things often, to avoid the negatives. Would a skilled site moderator have made a difference? Don't know. Can we bring it back? LIke starting new posts on realt opics, wooing those who left, ???

I'm all in Karens!  

 

I have the same sentiment about the site.
