Is it OK for users to just delete my response on an answer apparently for no reason? I simply addressed the question with my personal opinion (about dog food, and how it doesn't make sense for it to be optimum nutrition, exactly what the question asked), and I believe it was removed. I was subsequently ignored when I asked why.
I guess they can delete. I have never used that option on any of the questions I have asked. Shoot, I ask for answers. I reckon we will just never understand the actions of some.
Yes, they can delete answers if they want.
I felt as though my responses were not appreciated because they were in support of something that the thread starter simply did not agree with even though they asked the question. I spent time articulating my thoughts to the question and this is discouraging and makes me not want to answer questions anymore. I don't see the point in allowing a user to remove comments or 'vote down' ones that are clearly contributing to the discussion and the question asked. New comments are now disabled, I assume to prevent me from making anymore comments.
Is this response non-contributory?
"Please look at the ingredients of any pet food you feed, and completely ignore anything your vet says if it makes no sense. Your vet recommends Science Diet. What is in a typical bag?
Science Diet® Adult Lamb Meal & Rice Recipe:
"Lamb Meal, Brewers Rice, Brown Rice, Corn Gluten Meal, Whole Grain Wheat, Whole Grain Sorghum, Animal Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Cracked Pearled Barley, Chicken Liver Flavor, Flaxseed..."
The second ingredient is 'brewers rice', which means the food is based on it. The 4th is 'corn gluten meal', an ingredient that even messes with the stomachs of people. Does that make sense for a dog to eat? Look at the number of grains, they outdo the meat easily. Again, I would strongly discourage listening to a vet unless they sound like they know a thing or two about dog nutrition. Even then, it's imperative to do your own research. You don't want to just go by what other people say. It's important to realize that all dog food in the end is not what a dog is meant to eat, period. Choosing a low quality one is not an option."
I happen to agree with what you're saying here, I personally make all our dog's food so I know exactly what's in it.
Don't let it hurt your feelings, it's so easy to offend people when you cannot hear their tone of voice and inflections. If they didn't appreciate your response enough, just let it roll off and go on to have a great day.
That is good advice, but I do want my answers to be heard to questions I feel are important. I found it rude that people would find it 'non-contributory' and vote it down because they don't agree with it (I'm just finding out that this is what the arrow feature is meant to do). I don't think this is a fair feature. I'm glad that you agree.
People can choose to add or delete whatever they want under their own questions. It's best not to take it personally.
I just looked you up. You are the expert on pets and what they should eat. For snakes do people usually buy frozen mice and thaw them and then feed it to them? I might want to by a king snake.
The Indian scripture, Bhagavad Gita, says that to be happy and stress-free, you should not be attached to the fruit of your actions. So you do something with good intentions. But whatever happens is not in your control so do not worry about it. L Ron Hubbard says "Try to control what you can control. Do not try to control what you cannot control."
I tell people that Moores Cancer Center proposes that cancer is a vitamin D deficiency like Rickets. Also that Doctor of Public Health, Cedric Garland, says that enough vitamin D will virtually eradicate breast cancer. Some people curse me out. But many like the info. Reptiles would fall and die until they learned that they needed vitamin D by putting sunlamps in their cages. Michael Holick M.D. is a professor of medicine at Boston U Medical School. He has been treating people and zoo animals with vitamin D for over 40 years.
Everyone is an expert on something. You are the world's leading expert on what foods taste the best to you. You are the world's leading expert on what activities that you like the most. Jesus was an expert on growing up Jewish.
I also feel like my two topics that I created in the Hubber's Hangout forum got deleted and I have no idea why. They didn't contain any promotional links nor did they contain any offensive content.
I just don't get it.
