I'm at a loss to understand here.
I have only had my betta for just over 3 weeks now.
I have posted questions and received good responses.
The most troublesome has been about my pH levels.

Callistra had responded to some ? and a few others responded also. I followed someone elses' advice and i think Callistra misundertood what i was saying, so i said this.
Then Callistra said i didn't trust him/her and will leave me alone.

Odd response.

Then stated i thought help/facts were offensive and that I argued against help, then went on to say he/she was "done".
This seemed kind of childish to me. Which is why i said that his/her response is probably why newbies don't come back.

Now we have hallyx stating I need to have manners and graciousness.
I'm very upset by this.
There has been no mention of what Callistra said.
So, I interpret this as bullying of new people on the board.
Senior members can say what they want.

So, to make a long story short, I really don't want to be part of a board like this.
I'm sure there are many great people on the board....but it's hard to ignore childish/rude statements.

I still need help with all of the info about Betta care...but i'll have to find it somewhere else.

Please remove me from this board.

I am so sorry that their behavior has upset you enough that you want to quit the forum. Rest assured that our staff will look into this. Could you provide us with a link to the thread where all this happened?

Yes! Another option is to sign onto tropicalfishkeeping.com (use the same user name and password) and post in our aquariums section. :-D Most of the people on bettafish.com don't use tropicalfishkeeping.com.

Hi,
Yes it is that thread.
I was not expecting any response to my request for removal.
It's nice to hear someone is listening.
I MAY reconsider...i just don't know yet.
Thanks
