In answer to your first post, I always kept my rabbits in the house. In fact, I keep all my animals indoors, ..cats, dogs, parrots, tarantulas, etc. I feel I can give them better care and more attention if they are always in here with me.
That's not to say that people who keep their animals outdoors negelct them. It's just harder to do it sometimes when they are outside. I'm very aware of my animals habits, the quality of their fecals and how they are feeling. It would be much harder to observe these things if the animal was outside.
As to going to the other site to discuss it, ...if you want to discuss it over there, ...why post here? I am not familiar with the rules, policies or moderators over there. What's more, it's a hassle to sign up for another board when this is one of (if not the best) general animal boards on the the internet (although there does seem to be a lot of those silly chinchilla owners here...)
I find it hard to believe that people have more freedom over there than right here. You've got to be pretty antagonistic to get kicked off this site, as far as I have seen. If the conversation goes that far, it's probably not one I want to be a part of.... JMO
