Loc: here
With all the different things going on in the community recently, we feel we should let our members know where we stand, what we will tolerate, and what we will not.

GliderCENTRAL is here to help gliders in any way we can. We are here for members when they need help and we continue to try and improve on this every day. Recent events have taken place that caused chaos not only here on GliderCENTRAL but throughout the entire glider community.

We consider mill breeders/brokers to be equally to blame, one is no better than the other. However, we will not allow bashing of mill brokers or mill breeders.

We do applaud the steps that some have taken in bridging the gap between the community and mill breeders/brokers. As we have stated, as long as changes are made to improve the care and information given for gliders from mill breeders/brokers, we will allow and even encourage productive discussions on this subject here on GliderCENTRAL.

What we will not tolerate is those same people harassing or forcing their opinions on others by using what they call facts simply because they were told by a mill breeder/broker. Nor will the Owners of GliderCENTRAL work with a middle person or spokesperson for any mill broker/breeder.

We are hopeful that efforts being made will help bridge the gap to improve the care for gliders that come from mill breeders/brokers. It does not matter who does what, as long as it gets done!! It is unrealistic to think that only one or two people will be responsible for accomplishing this goal and we will not allow this topic or any to become a vehicle for anyone to raise themselves above anyone else in this community. It will take the cooperation first and foremost of the mill breeders/brokers as well as the acceptance of those changes by the glider community.

We strongly feel the millbreeders/brokers are in large part responsible for the majority of the overpopulation and poor breeding practices just to mention a couple of areas.

GliderCENTRAL feels the best way to get results is for laws to be made and/or changed. This will set the standards and conditions under which gliders are bred and kept. These changes will be the most effective way to not only have standards enforced for the average breeder but also the mill breeders/brokers. If the mill breeders/brokers make changes before laws are set in place, wonderful, but the laws and/or standards do need to be set.

We will not allow harassing or bullying, forcing ideologies on the members here under the guise of effecting change in the glider community. This will be grounds to find yourself locked out of your GliderCENTRAL account for a time to be determined by the Owners/Admin of GliderCENTRAL. The sooner everyone realizes that the issues at hand are bigger than any one person, group, or organization the quicker improvements can happen.

If you notice any of this happening on GliderCENTRAL, please help us and use the notify moderator button to bring it to our attention. We try to read every post, but we do miss some and appreciate the help. Please use the notify moderator button instead of bickering within the threads. We would hate for any account to be suspended. There are proper ways of doing things and we are hoping this will be a first step in the right direction.
Karen & Eddie

You unfairly passed too young - your passing saved many gliders and will continue to do so
