  15. Haven't posted for a while, nor have I had much time to read, as I was involved in moving. Not fun, but I love my new home, and I'm settling in, so soon I'll have more time for reading.

  17. I know, but what I mean is, it's not only a case of someone killing eggs out of spite or whatever. I believe the person who posted my hatchlings did it because they thought I needed help. They took away the happiness I'd been looking forward to, of watching my dragons grow up. I'm saying there are other effects besides killing someone's dragons.
  18. It's not only a matter of view bombing. Someone has been posting my eggs on hatcheries without my permission, sometimes endangering them, but even when they're not in danger of dying, it's infuriating to me. For example, my hatchlings were close to 4 days when I went to bed last night. I was looking forward to posting them on a hatchery and watching them grow up. Instead, some interfering idiot posted them for me, like I'm so helpless or so stupid I can't do this myself. The hatchlings were in no danger of dying, at just under 4 days. I've now fogged my scroll, and I think I'll have less to do with posting here and on other DC discussion groups. If this kind of thing doesn't stop, I'll probably have a lot less to do with the DC in general.
  19. I got two of the new eggs just a few minutes ago. I have not put them up on any click site, but someone else did. If I hadn't been watchful, they might have been killed by getting too many clicks too fast. Why do people do this? Was someone trying to punish me for simply saying that I prefer knowing when the eggs are going to be released?
  20. And...I got an Alpine one. That's it for me for now. :-)
  21. I got one! From the Forest. Now to get one from Alpine, and I'll be happy for now. Whew! These are hard to catch. :-)
