Today, I was cleaning out my spam comments filter when I came across the hysterical rantings of someone I banned– mainly for being a Grade A moron and, therefore, too stupid to comment on this blog. (Here’s the link to the original post from which the following tidbits came. The stupidity is in the comments section.)
This woman called Jess and me ignorant. So I fucking banned her ass, because she was an ignorant fool who couldn’t read a peer-reviewed paper, even when it was spoon-fed to her.
Here are some highlights:
Jess told her that she should pay attention to what pet people are actually saying about the whole Crufts debacle, but of course, she didn’t listen– so she condescended to Jess:
Jess,Jess, Jess – whoever you are – I do listen to the pet people. After all, they are the segment of the pet owning population who have taken the time to do their homework and are willing to give a purebred rescue from a questionable breeder at best – i.e. no health checks, no nothing -a forever home. Please do let me know what you think I am missing?
Then she condescended to me:
Only thing I can say to your last post – and no disrespect intended to people that Blog with you – is that you must have some really really misinformed people on your blog. Kind of like the stovepipe – everyone circulates and recirculates the same stuff – correct or not it doesn’t matter because you don’t allow for outside opinion. How nice to live in a bubble !!! Makes life simple!!!
I’m misinformed, eh? I’m misinformed because I can read scientific papers that say inbreeding and closed registries are destroying our dogs?
Well, let’s see where this little bird’s fount of all information comes from:
Sorry you feel the way you do about purebred dogs. Although not a breeder myself, I question your stated two problems. Have you ever read Dr. Carmen Batagalia’s work regarding pure bred dog breeding? If you have not, I strongly suggest that you do. Web site is http://www.breedingbetterdogs.com
It is truly amazing what you can learn.
Carmen Battaglia’s website is actually quite full of misinformation. Battaglia has no degree in genetics. His doctorate is in criminology.
His nonsense has been destroyed in two posts at BorderWars:
2. Brackett’s Formula: Nothing Special (based upon Battaglia’s promotion of inbreeding through what is called Brackett’s formula).
This woman was so stupid that I just had to drop some nice little f-bombs on her.
Some people are just so ignorant that they don’t know they are ignorant. These people are beyond help. I’m sorry that they find this particular blog a little less coddling of ignorance than much of the rest of the dog blogosphere.
Unlike Jess or Chris, this woman has never bred a litter, and that’s a pretty good thing.
Her dogs would be so crappy that hamsters would outlive them.
And they’d be lucky to have eyes.
Buying whatever the latest doggy televangelist snake-oil salesman is offering is one of the things that is destroying dogs.
From Lloyd Brackett to Carmen Battaglia, people have been misinformed about the real dangers of inbreeding, popular sire effect, and the closed registry system.
But the stupid people just won’t listen.
And they think I’m going to be nice to them when they spout this bullshit on my blog.
I’m sorry, folks, that’s not what I do.
Nowhere on this blog do I say that I’ll suffer fools gladly.
If you’re going to be an idiot, this is the wrong place to spout idiocy.
