I just went to the website for the first time.  Mail Archives is 5th down the list.  The other links take anyone interested to Treatments, FAQ's, FeLv Links and the mailing list.  Why would anyone needing information on the disease pass up all these opportunities and go to Mail Archives?  In addition, the main section of the home page is devoted to Treatments! 

It's too bad that discussions of politics annoy some people but you can't put one issue into a bubble and not expect that world and local events won't impact it.  Politics these days impacts our very existence since it includes our personal finances, whether our children and grandchildren will be sent to foreign countries to fight wars against people they have never even met and die or be injured and handicapped for the rest of their lives. It impacts whether we have personal resources to care for our companion animals, whether they are feline, canine or some other species.  It impacts whether we will have a place to live where our cats and dogs are accepted as part of our family.  Even as personal a topic as religion impacts us.  You have to remember that cats have been associated with women for centuries and women have been suspected of being witches by some major religions.  Therefore, cats and women have been killed by being tossed into flames and burned to death, tossed into rivers and drowned, because some religions believe that cats and women are in league with the devil.  Most religions, up to a decade ago refused to believe that animals have souls.  Most still don't believe that cows, sheep, pigs and other animals have souls.  I have no idea on what authority they come to this conclusion but it endangers our companion animals and turns them and their brothers and sisters of other species into food, decoration, sport and entertainment items and clothing because they are viewed as products that happen to be animated and able to move from place to place on their own, instead of living beings having the same Life Force as we have.

Most topics we discuss here, INCLUDING Politics and Religion are not OFF TOPIC but are on topics that seem to anger those who have not come to grips with their own beliefs and probably have not done enough research to have a firm conviction in their own beliefs.  Trust that if someone from the outside comes onto this list and needs information on all the health issues concerning FeLv+ cats, they will get more information and answers than they ever expected.

 
Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors too!

Subject: [Felvtalk] FW: Asking for advice again/back to Leukemia list

I have never looked at archives, so why would a person who just joined do that when they ask a question or present their problem to the group?
I really don’t see a problem here.

I've always directed people to this list, but if the first thing they see when they look at the archives is talk about politics & hunting they may just turn away.

As someone posted already, as soon as someone needs advice, the off topic will change immediately.  This happens during a lull – we haven’t had any serious issues for a while!, which is good. Then your problem came along, and I saw quite a few replies from several people; if you feel it wasn’t enough, ask again, what specific concerns or explanations you require after the advice was given.
Yes, FeLV is super serious, and this is exactly where you can get help.
