This is completely off cat topic, but I am so mad!! I have been moderating on a forum concerning my profession(body piercing) and with the help of several other adults, we have finally managed to do some good, and possibly prevent some young people from butchering themselves doing it at home with safety pins and using improper jewelry when they can find a (?)pro to pierce them. Now we have this apprentice coming in behind us and telling the kids that we are wrong. Of course they are going to listen to whoever tells them what they want to hear. I can delete his posts, then I look like a narrow minded jerk, or I can argue with him, again looking like I think I am the only one who knows anything. I am beginning to think this is a huge waste of time and effort. I would give it up completely, but the guy who owns the site is putting a website together for me, and if I quit, it will seem like I used him to get a website. I really do not care about having one, but it was the deal when I took the moderating position. I would hate to have this guy waste his time. Any opinions? Thanks for letting me vent on a topic I know a lot of you probably care nothing about.
