Hmm. What I meant is that an attitude may appear strange or stupid when the context, that is the person is unknown. When you know where the person is coming from the attitude, may be more understandable.
Pets may be part of the family, but some people may go over the top. For some they may be a substitute for children, for various reasons. It happens. It doesn't mean one has to share their attitude but one might have difficulty changing it. If someone has a pit bull, which most, rightly or wrongly, think includes a Staffordshire bull terrier, one might suspect a background of violence which gives a strong emotional need for protection.
As some point out she seems to be thinking emotionally rather than rationally.
In a forum the person is unknown, and while I agree that direct feedback can have value, it might be tempered as it would be in say a yacht club, where a rolled eye, or muttered comment goes unnoticed.
The points were answered sensibly. The emotional inconsistencies were noted. So the person has some issues? Very unusual. Do we need to go into comments on their photo?
The strength of forums like these is that they encompass all from raw beginner to international expert, as people, largely without regard to age, wealth, politics etc. That there are also individual vagaries may be noted, but as in real life one may accept rather than focus on them.
