WE DEMAND THAT DOBERMANTALK AND THEIR PARENT COMPANY VERTICALSCOPE START ACTING LIKE A RESPONSIBLE FORUM AND CORPORATION AND START PROTECTING THE LIVES, LIVELIHOODS AND REPUTATIONS OF IT'S FORUM MEMBERS!! THESE ARE REAL PEOPLE BEING HURT ON YOUR FORUMS!
Dobermantalk.com, while on it's face, and within its own manifesto, touts itself as the premier on-line educational resource forum for the betterment of the breed. It is a forum, a vicious criminal forum known for quite some time to bash, injure, defame and libel others, and quite frankly, a very dangerous place to visit and chat especially for breeders. Sometimes, these crimes are perpetuated by the Moderators themselves.
WARNING - IFyou are a breeder, involved in any of the canine sports or show arena - DO NOT give any information in your profile or to any member within the D.T. site, do not let them know anything about you. What may seem innocent and in good faith at first, can in fact, turn against you in a HEARTBEAT, you will be thrown into what seems like a pool of Pirahna, they will viciously research you, attack you and/or your business that you heavily invested in and worked so hard to create with no recourse to correct.
For a breeder, once they have bashed you over and over your problems have only just begun. Google with their web bot crawlers trolling the internet for key words, once they pick up on your kennel name, or website or some other identifying name....IT'S OVER! You will be defamed in cyberspace - forever injured as there is no way to be removed from these search engines. Thus, you are ultimately injured whether by reputation or lost sales, both universally legitimate and lawfully recognized claims.
While moderators have the capacity and will remove posts for inappropriate language OR if you disagree with their views. Dobermantalk.com will not take the responsibiblity for the removal of the sometimes vicious and criminally defaming posts and protecting the reputations and livelihoods of its members even when requested by it's members. While touting itself as an educational forum, freedoms of speech and expression stops when others are injured, the moderators through inaction become co-conspirators of the crime, ultimately, perperuating the crime of defamation and the injuring of others reputations and livelifoods by willful and criminal neglect.
While the initial thought was a boycott of their advertising, it was decided to open a page on this site for the sharing of peoples personal experiences and letting the people's voice inform the advertisers and anyone else thinking about placing advertising with VerticalScope - and letting these advertisers and potential advertisers make the decision of whether they want to be associated with this corporation and subsequent criminal behavior.
1. Give members the discretion and the right to have vicious and damaging posts immediately removed at members request so members may protect themselves and their livelihoods from the vicious witch hunts and abuses that take place on dobermantalk.com!
2. Give members the right to totally unsubscribe from dobermantalk.com!
3. The complete removal and replacement of all staff of dobermantalk.com - From the administrator to the moderators and replaced with personel that will insititute a No Derogatory, No Bashing and No Defaming policy enforcing a strict educational and positive atmosphere!
The experience at dobermantalk.com can be really traumatic. This is the platform to have your voices heard and mean something, these voices will be directed to the advertisers and parent company of dobermantalk.com - VerticalScope. Thus it is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to share your voice - your experiences. You can do so anonymously as several have already done, but please, no bashing or naming names. Go to the Share your Experience page here.
Please pass this site to everyone you know who is involved with dobermans, whether so to have their voices heard, or, to be warned.
