|I agree with Czarka in that it's less to do with having money and more to do with commitment.
Some things honestly just sound very troll-like when someone who has never posted before makes their first post about their dog being pregnant for like the 3rd time by accident and they don't know what they should do.
I think those will probably always get snippy responses just because it has nothing to do with knowledge or lack of knowledge but simply just responsibility as a decent human being & common sense. And I think it's normal for some to react rather harshly because quite a few of Dogsters are also involved with rescue, transport, or fostering, and it's just tiring to see the same mistakes being made over and over with someone who seems totally nonchalant about the whole thing.
Things like not knowing much about food, not knowing much about training, not knowing much about a breed before you get one, having gotten a dog from a puppy mill, etc.. having been on Dogster for a little while I think that most of the time people are polite and informative about this. JMHO.
Compared to other forums I've been on I find Dogster full of very helpful, informative people who are in general a nicer group of dog owners than a bunch of forums I've been to, who happen to either A) not know much about dogs/not able to provide much help or B) if it's breed specific, pretty much discriminate against every other breed as basically not being a real dog/as good in a not nice way. Those forums are really insane.
