I have extremely limited time to post lately, but Michelle directed me to this thread As Leslie is a friend.
Having read the board in question, I cannot recommend even attempting to debate or reason with these people. These are not your run-of-the-mill anti-pit people who simply lack experience or education regarding the breed. They are overwhelmingly hateful, closed-minded, and fanatical. Worst of all, they are extemely fearful of what they do not understand, and this level of fear-based hate is almost impossible to overcome without a one-on-one interaction. Even then it is dicey.
These are the equivalent of people who protest and hold up signs saying things like "Fags go to Hell" and that kind of repulsive crap. These are the kind of people that you could literally PROVE wrong, only to watch them deny that you did so.
Not worth even spending the time necessary to rebut anything. Besides, I doubt very much that ANYONE on that board would have the balls to actually speak to one of us in real life. Cowardice, unfortunately, lends itself nicely to keyboard warriors.
