I just want to cry...

Gotta love being personally attacked for trying to do a good thing. I posted an ad on CL for my betta rescue and had 2 people post personal public attacks saying that I don't care about people, and I verbally attack employees at pet stores even though I have no idea what I'm talking about and I take horrible care of the fish that I have... I mean really? One person was upset because I didn't help her with her fish, and I admit that was my fault, I over looked her when she needed me because I had a lot going on, I didn't do it on purpose, there was no need to attack me publicly. I have no idea who the other person was... I just want to cry...

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

Those people who attack you when you've only been trying to do the right thing are the ones with the problem, not you. I've been going through that, too. You've always tried to help people and you sure helped me with my little rescue fish and gave me good advice. All you can do is the best you can and if they don't like ut then they can take a hike.

I'm sorry to hear that Moonshadow! Everyone on this forum knows how much you care and how hard you strive to help fish in need. You are very knowledgeable and have helped not only rescue a lot of fish, you've helped educate people about proper fish care. That's more than these two people can say! Honestly probably the only reason they did it on CL is you can attack people without having to say it to their face, the anonymity of the Internet makes cowards who would never speak to you like that in person come crawling out of the woodwork.

Welcome to the internet, where keyboard wielding cowards rule. Just ignore them and go on knowing you're still good but they'll always be cowards. *big hugs*

We all try to help the best we can. All our advice is based on our personal experience with our own betta OR from reading a lot of threads and posts on the forum. Some times or most of the time no matter how experienced you are ,we all have different opinion . Sometimes most the knowledgeable people can't figure out whats wrong or what right . I am working at a medical facility were we have 3 cardiology doctors and they all take advice from each other. If you giving advice you trying to help people and its appreciated. We are all learning from each other too. Just continue to help. Thank you!

I agree, they're a bunch of serious cowards! Don't let a bunch of jerks on Craigslist upset you, it isn't worth it. They obviously have got nothing better to do.

I would just ignore them as they are the ones who are being stupid.

Some people just so ignorant and not appreciative to anything or anyone. Don't let them upset you because they the ones who always upset and not happy with anything anyway.
