Thank you all for being such a great, friendly community. Here, it feels like I'm with family, while in other forums I am very defensive and protective of everything. In dog forums I've tried, it really feels like just random strangers from the internet who put in their two cents and move on, while here is much more personal and friendly. Thank you all for giving gentle advice instead of rubbing salt in the wound. In the first parrot forum I tried, before I discovered the Avenue, when I shared my wish for a parrot and asked for advice, forum members FLAMED on me, just for being a minor interested in birds. It escalated, without me posting further, to the point where I was literally cussed out simply for being young-ish. I am so glad the experience didn't turn me away from forums, so I could discover you guys. Thank you Avenue, for being the best forum I know of. This is NOT a goodbye post, no worries!
