THIS IS STACY BTW
WOW, i am just reading these posts for the first time today.. I agree with the other posters that this website has been nothing but a great resource, networking, and an amazing huge giant friendship with other people that share a great passion for big paws.
First of all, Jamie and Michael I would like to say THANK YOU for creating this website and having the passion to keep it going! I can only imagine how difficult it is to ask for some aid here and there.
Second, I don't know the first thing about running a website and the first thing about costs etc. But I don't think that Michael or Jamie would be the type of people to "USE" BPO as a way to make money! and even if they were (IN SOME FAR FAR WORLD) then let them be the ones that have to go to sleep at night, not critize them. And quite a few people know there home address! if that was such a concern would you think they would be giving out there home addres??
We have been on this website for over a year now and I understand that selling things online can make profit, but most of the time when people sell things theres usually a defecite. PLUS i would assume that Jamie would put the money towards paying the costs. ANd never once has Jamie ever asked for money in return for the bibs that she sends out every month!! ANd I know how much fabric can cost!
If people want to donate money then let them. If you honestly have a problem with this whole ordeal, i think that the most responsible mature way to go about it would have been to PM Jamie or Michael with your concerns. Not Post it on a board where obv. everyone is so passionate and expressing there concern.
ITs the old, "IF you can't say nothing nice, dont say nothing at all!!"
Anywho, I myself am very upset by this and again would like to just say THANK YOU to Jamie and Michael for creating this amazing website, if it ever comes to a time when you need to have a fee, I WILL BE GLAD TO SIGN UP!!
and THANK YOU TO ALL OUR BPO FAMILY for sticking up for this cause as well!!
