    You aren't the only one who cares about dogs and supports their rescue.  Your specific gripe about Facebook has no bearing on that fact.

    I find your attitudes towards people who are challenging your limited I/T view of Facebook's need to bend to your will as self-centered and haughty, at best.

      You stated that better than I could. A lot of suggestions were made and for someone to say we don't care is insulting. Besides, I had my GUS (gave up smoking) diary to monitor. My diary tonight features dogs, of things. :)

        I've seen this act before, unfortunately.

        You are apparently so deeply web to your local group's current organizational style that anyone who appears to not give you answers that you expected - i.e., ignoring or blithely dismissing all the constructive response provided - apparently causes you to claim some moral high ground that nobody else is allowed to come near when it comes to dogs.  As if your rescue group is the sole proprietor of good conscience and effective management.

        This has led you to claim that other DKos members are poor owners or implicitly willing to let dogs suffer instead of being rescued, because you cannot fathom any other method of seeking to organize your group aside from demonizing Facebook for not having clue about your ill-fitted use of their site.  And, we cannot give you a better answer than saying it's not a useful tact for your group to take.  Far better to move if Facebook cannot meet your needs any longer.

        I'm in I/T and trying to help you realize that your way will unfortunately not work, so summarized various easy methods mentioned here and pulled from my experiences.

        At the same time, I'm not above calling out bad actions when I feel they are evident on the site.  One of my sisters owns a rescue god, transports animals which are scheduled to be put down in shelters, fosters various cats and works for the ASPCA - I have supported her efforts in various ways over the years.  I am no stranger to the good that can be done by rescue groups, but using Facebook as you desire doesn't seem to be a path which will provide you the benefit you need - best to consider a process and tool change now.

        •  It is not my local group. (0+ / 0-)

          You should read the diary and read what I wrote. That it is not my rescue group. You are responding without even having comprehended what was written.

          I clearly state:

          On a page like mine, it doesn't matter. No one is dying. We can seek other venues at leisure.
          it is not a local group, it groups all over principally, though not exclusively, the United States. Those are only the ones that are complaining.

          Sticking fingers in the ears? What are you doing by defending facebook's neglecting this situation when it would take zero effort or cost to stop experimenting on the rescues who have told them it is killing animals?

          How is that a problem?

          Address that instead of the personal dislike for me you are only able to focus on?
