Actually, the internet seems to bring out the worst in some people no matter what the topic. There are trolls and just plain nasty individuals wherever the public can post. Bloodhorse.com shut down almost all their public comments sections because of the nastiness. Look at popular YouTube channels from makeup to music and everything in between, you'll find nastiness. Our politics have become impossible.Flanders wrote: ↑Fri Feb 14, 2020 5:39 pmI mean the crazy side of fans ruins everything. People cry when owners don't share information about their horses but its damned if they do and damned if they don't. I follow a woman who gallops thoroughbreds at a track in Canada and she retrains OTTBs for new careers. One of her horses was diagnosed with EPM and people are blaming EPM on the horse having raced. Others are damning her for not euthanizing the horse now, the horse was just diagnosed on her vet is trying to help him recover from EPM. They also damned her for taking a foal away from its dam when the mare tried to kill it. Everyone has to have their opinion about everything and guess what? The owners/connections of horses don't give a crap what the "fans" opinion is. They don't know better than the connections and their vets on any subject. "Fans" can't expect to act like asshats and get information from connections. Its like when Rachel got sick and the idiots were calling the freaking clinic she was at. That isn't acceptable behavior.Summer Bird wrote: ↑Fri Feb 14, 2020 4:35 pmLooks like the official California Chrome Facebook page is shutting down. Seems like the crazy side of Chrome’s fans ruined it for everyone, and yes the page is run by the Martins. It seems like they’re sick of getting attacked for anything that happens with Chrome and I don’t blame them.
I said it the first day Chrome's sale was announced...personally I'm glad he's in Japan. I think he is safer there than here in the U.S. The Japanese still understand the concept of honor. And for that, I honor them.
