Dea Lisa:

I have not seen a time in which the ferret community did not have a
number of groups who had significant issues with each other.
However, the migration to online communities and the fact that you
can now insult, attempt to discredit, or vilify those who you
disagree with, without having to see them face to face threatens the
ferret community more than ever before.

I intend to be here for quite a while, and I can promise you that I,
and the rest of the moderaors (Chris, Sukie, and Mike) will be
vigilant that inappropriate behavior will not intrude on this list.

With kindest regards,

Bruce H. Williams, DVM
