how easily people get upset when they *think* they're being scolded
publicly. Remember that (a) it's very easy to take things that are
written the wrong way, and (b) there are real, living human beings
at the other end of all of these posts, so before taking offense,
take a deep breath and wait at least an hour before responding.
Just about all the time, you'll find that after calming down and re-
reading the post that upset you, it won't seem so bad.
This is not directed to you in particular, but to everyone,
including me, because I've been scolded here publicly too at times,
or felt like I have been. Perhaps you feel scolded because her
comment came after one of your posts, but if you reread her post,
you'll see that the suggestion was made to the entire group, not to
As far as the database, the vast majority of members have not
entered anything in the database and the entries can easily go out
of date. I know Morag's is because her medications have been
adjusted several times.
We've always posted dosages here. Linda's point wasn't that dosages
shouldn't be posted, but that if they are going to be posted, do it
in a way that conveys useful information. As you said, we're all
adults, and so we should know to consult a vet before making any
changes to our cat's treatment plan.
