Venting!!

Man, I don't understand people. I follow a super cute parrotlet online, but the owner encourages wiggling behaviour as a trick as people think it's cute (I mean, it is haha)... left a polite comment saying it's cute but shouldn't be encouraged (and even cited our vet scare from Monty choking and vomiting after wiggling when he got too excited), and they just deleted everything and blocked me.
Just will never understand why people don't want to learn how to take better care of their pets. I wasn't even rude, I was super polite and said that I know that they will do it anyway even when discouraged but it's best to not reward them for the behaviour.

Sorry about the vent... just wanted to vent to people who also care about their birds and other birds as much as I do!

That shouldn't have happened to a nice person like you! When people write words and sentences, sometimes the ' message ' may not be taken well. People are sometimes way too sensitive! There are people out there who will disagree with a statement, even if it is your opinion!


But, you have every right to be a little ticked. I would! I just want to tell you that you don't have a problem, they do! My God! We can't say or write anything anymore without double checking every word because someone might get upset. You are cool to me!

That's sweet David! I totally get how things could be misconstrued online.... I never judge anyone for anything especially if they just didn't know but I think they made their message to me pretty clear!

And people can disagree! I know you are not a fan of frozen veggies for birds but you aren't judging anyone who supplements some of their birds veggies with some frozen if it helps them get a varied diet. If they wanted to respond and say they disagreed that is totally fine too, but you can't have proper discourse and discussion if you just block people... sigh!

I dunno why it bugged me so much!

Sadly what you describe is the new way of the world. People are all about themselves and any disagreement is considered violence and the reason to block, cancel, dox and remove. We try hard not to do that here.
Raising birds are a bit like raising children. There are a lot of bad ways to do it but nobody likes to hear they are doing it wrong. They take it personal instead as what it is, constructive advice.

People get offended so easily nowadays. Don't let anyone like that get to you. I love quotes and some of my favorites are by Dr. Seuss. One says, "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind."

Great quote! How true!



Here's a quote I ran across the other day. " The humans who take care of birds, must love others besides themselves. "
