"Desperation is showing!" ?????

Oh geeez what now Carrie??

We have a fellow Care2 member that has hand made artistic work at Etsy, Val.

It's a time of sorrow for those who loved their pets and now have lost them. Send a card, make some phone calls to the friend that is now in pain, share some time offering comfort. Most of us have lost pet at one time or another, and we know how painful that time is, friends do help.

Thank you Cher, for reminding us of ways to help our friends in a time of sorrow.

Oh for goodness sake, another comment removed?

First, I mentioned that Val a fellow Care2 member does make lovely and artistic items at Etsy. The prices are reasonable, very affordable gifts, candles and cards for a friend that could use your well wishes.

I think we all or most have lost a pet over the years. The pain and heart break linger for years, and we can find comfort from friends. A note, a card, some comforting phone calls are welcomed from friends who do care, and want to offer comfort.
Thank you, Cher for reminding us that we can offer some comfort to our friends that are in sorrow over the loss of their furry friends. Most of the time our best friends.

** I have no problem ignoring articles or comments from those who decide to behave like trolls. I do not see the point in attempted harassment.

Thank you Cher. Apparently there are some people on Care2 that have either never had a friend, or had a pet.

Ignore them Cher, by now it must be apparent to everyone some people are heartless political trolls, who don't know what to do with themselves if the aren't busy bashing someone. I guess the fun has run out for Romney, and now its YOUR turn. That's what happen when people ain't got NO LIFE- they try to suck it out of others.

Appreciate the article, and your dedication.

Also, bringing over homemade food to the bereaved helps alot. When you're mourning, it is hard to cook something and many mourners will go without eating.

No it wasn't vile Carrie but it is harrassment and care2 does NOT like harrassment!!

"only self promoting and seeks to gain golden notes at any cost"

you don't know me Carrie, it really is so sad that you think this way, but I am ONLY here for the animals/environment etc and anyone who knows me would agree!!! Just ask anyone of my friends.

"Even attacking me and others who have disagreed with her in the past"
When have I ever attacked anyone, especially you?? I think you are misguided. Weren't you the one who sent around emails about me?? What did I do? NOTHING! I just blocked you and moved on. I unlike you try to not cause problems on here. Why? Because I am here for the animals!!!!

Get real! What you are so desperate you have to lie??? YOU ARE UNBELIEVABLE!!!

and finally....

" I will continue to change my password on a regular basis so as to avoid these attacks from Cher and her friends"

WTF????? And what does your password have to do with me??

Wow!! Seriously Carrie


Just stay out of my news.

Carrie, stop playing the victim. You were "attacked" because you ran an inappropriate gossip rag to all your "friends" encouraging them not to note Cher's news.

I'm not sure what makes you think you need to control what people post, or where they post. Perhaps you may want to explore in therapy how long you have had a desire to be a NEWS NAZI POLICEWOMAN.

Kit B. (276)

Yeah, someone else using that avatar was posting comments for you. First, you want to be friends with Cher and then you don't, then you do and again you don't. I think it's become painfully evident who is here for "green stars and golden notes" and it is not Cher, not Nyack and you can bet it is not me. Right now, Carrie you are trolling for attention. How pathetic is that?

Don't like Cher, or Nyack or me, so fine don't leave comments and stop telling others what to do, where to post and who they should or should not be friends with. It's simple, accept your choices and live with them.

OK, Let's start this over. I had not commented on this story until a mutual friend asked me what was going on? I didn't know and still don't because the comment was gone. I didn't find out about all of this until last night because I spent most of the day at my doctor's office.

My account was hacked and some very strange things happened like everyone here being angry with me about a comment I had nothing to do with. I changed my password so the problem would stop. I did not mean to insinuate that Cher had anything to do with the hacking.

Since my account has been hacked three times in four years, I decided to start changing my password regularly. I hope this clears everything up ladies and you realize that I am not always the bad guy.

Awww.. the VICTIM of hacking now?

That sure lets you get away with the nonsense you say to people, doan it? "I didn't say it The hacker did!" lol

Nyack Clancy (535)

Gee Carrie- then I guess it was actually a "hacker" that sent me this note, too when you were still my friend? "Someone" sure seems to have an obsession with the offbeat animal stories on Care2!

"Most of us know that most, if not all, animal stoties make the "most poluar" stories of each and every day. Why then is it necessacry to submit SOOO many regular animal stories as "Off - Beat" news? Especially when MOST of these stories are regular animal news and would be recogonized as such. This takes away from the very limited space offered to those who are trying to submit items that are truly off - beat and different from the norm. Anyone want to offer an answer or thought?

Hugs, Carrie"

Nyack, you know I sent that on behalf of others who were afraid of all of you. One of those people was harassed so badly that she left care2. I don't care what you post or where you post it. And I will not be driven off this site simply because of a few mean spirited, lonely, bored old women.

I was trying to explain what had happened to me over the past few days. Obviously Cher doesn't care and you just continue attacking me. Please stop.

Carrie B. (312)

By the way, Kit should know I would NEVER have posted anything derogatory on this story because of my own recent loss.

Nyack Clancy (535)
Thursday November 15, 2012, 2:00 am
Hey Carrie- there you go again- Here to call everyone "mean spirited", in the same breathe you call people (who you dont even know)- " lonely, bored old women."

That is because you are a professional victim, with your nose all out of joint because you cannot, and will not, direct what people post, or where they post it.

I'll tell you what, I would still rather be a "lonely, bored old woman", than a NAZI NEWS POLICEWOMAN. Too bad you missed that whole- "Freedom of Press" and "Freedom of Speech" issue.

CherAWAY N. (1450)

"Obviously Cher doesn't care "
there you go again Carrie saying things you know nothing about.

I hadn't resonded to this because I DON"T BUY IT, it is just way too convienent. You have had a problem with me and my articles for awhile now and a few of my friends still have the emails you sent them to prove it.

I don't understand you and your need to harrass me. I have never done anything to you!!

It's funny how this 'hacker' only posted comments in my 'offbeat' articles, the ones you have had a problem with in the past. Hilarious!!!

Also, I see YOU as the mean spirited, lonely, bored old woman!!!!! Do I EVER come into your articles? NO!

I never started any of this crap with you, you started it, so like I have said before just avoid my articles please.

I am here to make a difference and all this petty garbage is just getting very tiring.

Pssst... Cher... lol... Step away from the drama. We have been baited, honey. Someone is probably hoping to get us suspended ;)

You know, the way we strike fear into everyone's heart and harrass them. LOL.

Carrie B. (312)

When I said Cher did not care, I was hoping that all new that I meant this unnecessary meanness and drama was less important than the story. I have continued to follow this particular story because it really does hurt me that anyone would use this particular story against me.

On June 1st, I lost my wonderful and beloved Ziggy to cancer. He was over 14 years old and had suffered from epilepsy since he was 2. He was regularly taking multiple medications and I even administered valium injections for breakthrough seizures.

Right now my heart is breaking thinking that there are some here who think I would ever do anything to try to diminish this story in any way.

It appears that whatever I say or do is always taken out of context and used as a weapon. I am very sorry for this because I am not the person some of you try to portray.

Yea Carrie you must REALLY be heartbroken to feel so "mis-judged." After all you did send this email to all your friends, stating exactly how you feel!

Personal Message

"Truly, many animal stories are quite different and off- beat, but recently many, if not MOST, are NOT . Friends, As I said earlier, ALL if not MOST animal stories are noted. Please think about all that other news you may not be interested in - especially at this time. I am not trying to offend anyone, but just imagine where all the animal and environmental rights would be without those of us who are not also very politically activated. Please forward this, sweetie!

Hugs, Carrie"

Your comment Carrie...... "Desperation is showing" was removed by care2 because it was rude and anyone who received your email asking them to not note my 'offbeat' news would know exactly what you meant.

So no I don't think it was an attack at the article, it was a direct attack at me and you know it.

I am not sure what I ever did to you Carrie, but please just stop now.

I am tired of this petty nonsense and I will not reply to this any further.
