While searching the Internet for various tasks, we ran across a comment that was left at a sports website on July 26th 2007. Michael Vick -- and his demise -- was in the news at the time. The comment was left at AJC.com, an Atlanta based publication, in a sports blog. Michael Vick was the topic of conversation, as was the fate of the Falcon football team.
The bantering amongst the comments touched on aspects like: the actions of "one player" should not cause a whole team to fall; how will the Falcons overcome this; why isn't anyone giving Vick the benefit of the doubt; PETA comes up; race issues are raised; one person even writes, "It is not a coincidence that most of the Vick supporters on this blog can’t spell or write..."
Conversations begin to build between users as well. As you continue to scroll through the comments on this web page this is clearly shown. The interesting aspect of the comments is that they lie in the realm of football, not in a realm such as DogsBite.org. Vick's actions tossed his fans into the seedy world of dogfighting and pit bulls; a world they may not have known before.
"I AM SELLING PLEDGE ALLEGANCE MIKE VICK T-SHIRTS," was followed by, "Chris Benoit had the good grace to commit suicide after his crime. Still waiting on an act of contrition from Mike Vick…" And then someone new chimed; someone who was likely not a sports fan. This person may have been victimized by a pit bull. After this post, the conversation tapered off quick:

Seems like this guy has some evidence that pit bulls might not all be therapy dogs and baby sitters. Who knew? ;-)
Imagine if that list was updated since the time of posting just over a year ago. Imagine if ALL pit bull attacks could actually be listed. It would break the scroll bar in your browser!

Dog attacks in general are UNDERREPORTED, and that includes pit bull attacks. I am aware of pit bull attacks that happened in my community that never made the paper, including one where a man was bitten badly enough that an ambulance was called. There is no media conspiracy, and Dogsbite is
only publishing a
fraction of what is really out there, because if you people were to make a serious attempt to publish every pit bull attack, the blog would become too bogged down to even read.
