I'm very glad to see this new board!!!
I'm certainly not offended by the name, and I do get the joke behind it ... but I think it is going to be confusing to new people. On several other pet boards that I post to "The Dog House" is the name of the board to talk about .... dogs. I think lots of people are going to be coming here wondering why we aren't talking about dogs in here.
How about "The Soapbox" ... as in "Uh-oh, look, Twisterdog is getting up on her soapbox again!"
"We give dogs the time we can spare, the space we can spare and the love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made" - M. Facklam
"We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers - thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams."- P.S. Beagle
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien
