  1. Do not recommend "trial pets" for children.

    PLEASE remove your article: https://www.intheknow.com/post/low-maintenance-trial-pets-kids/?amp&fbclid=IwAR2dZLJ1q5YWtv_v5xe1twjn_mgjihXQtkmI6XxSz-bdcJLFBtRpn7ZBUMI
    THIS idea of teaching responsibility with an animal or that certain animals are a stepping stone to a dog or cat is so misguided. Parents need to be prepared to care for the pet when the child inevitably loses interest. Pets are lifelong commitments - especially rabbits, they live until 12+ years if properly cared for...and they certainly are NOT cuddly or good for young children.They cost as much as a cat or dog for veterinary care and it is nothing shy of criminal to deny them that.

    Be responsible and do not add to…

  2. Please delete misleading article ‘Trial Pets’

    I am flabbergasted this was allowed to be published. No animals are trial pets! Each animal is a commitment and deserves to be well looked after. This is a misleading article because majority of animals take a lot of work, especially rabbits and they are not suited for kids! This article shows a lack of competency on behalf of the author for not doing research. This needs to be rectified immediately, with a factual article
    Published about the realities of rabbit care. This article will be responsible for parents getting their children rabbits, which are ten year commitments, and then…

  3. Delete this sarter pets article

    NO pet, especially rabbits, are "starter" pets or stepping stones to a dog. These are living, breathing animals that deserve proper care and attention. Not to be a "lesson" to see if your irresponsible kid can handle an even more labor intensive animal. They all require appropriate, timely and adequate care. They all deserve MORE than the BARE MINIMUM of attention. Rabbits are NOT gentle, they have teeth and nails like any animal. Lizards often require specific temperature ranges to even SURVIVE. Fish require CLEAN ph balanced water for their specific type and gerbils and hamsters, while inexpensive, require socialization,…

  4. Remove and Revise "Trial Pets" Article

    Your "Trial Pets..." article severely miscalculates the time, work, knowledge, and financial investment required to provide for the animals named in the article, many of which are exotic animals with care requirements that may meet or exceed the demands of a dog. Consider how the language used in this article, "trial," "low-maintenance," "starter," etc., encourages a devaluation of the lives of these living creatures. While shelters and rescue groups work tirelessly to encourage responsible animal ownership, uninformed and inaccurate articles like this plant different seeds in the minds of readers and sow mistrust of the advise of experts whose information…

  5. I implore you to PLEASE DELETE article:

    Please take down the 4 TRIAL PETS YOU SHOULD GET YOUR KIDS BEFORE YOU GET A DOG article! It is harmful and incorrect information.
    Rabbits are VERY HIGH maintenance animals who are neglected misunderstood. They are ultimately terrible starter animals especialy for children. They are very fragile, require expensive specialized exotic vet care, and hate being picked up (to name a few...)

    Your article is misinformation at best.

  6. Delete trial pets article

    This article is ridiculous and inaccurate.

    1. No pets are “trial pets” and referring to them as such spreads the ignorant notion that they are dispensable.
    2. Articles like this are the reason that 7 million animals a year are abandoned in a shelter (rabbits are 3rd on the list next to cats and dogs).
    3. Let’s specifically focus on rabbits... they are not “low maintenance pets.” They require more time and attention than just about any animal. They are fragile, skiddish, and suspectible to a vast array of illnesses and conditions. They need constant exercise but it’s not exactly safe to take…

  7. I cannot believe you allowed this article to run.

    No pet should ever be a trial pet. Also, I am a bunny owner. Let me educate you before this article results in many rabbits being dumped at animal shelters. Rabbits can live more than 10 years if taken care of properly. You are making a commitment. They require vet visits, proper diet, lots of space and care. They cannot live in a cage. They diet is costly. Hay is expensive, especially good quality hay. As for droppings not being everywhere, yes, they still will even if litter trained. Don’t even get me started on how destructive they are. You…

  8. Publish correct information or assure what your promoting is accurate

    Your website is promoting "6 PHONESOAP PRODUCTS WORTH SHOPPING WITH THIS EXCLUSIVE 20 PERCENT OFF PROMO CODE." It says that "between now and Dec. 31, you can get 20 percent off any PhoneSoap product when the code “INTHEKNOW” is applied at checkout." I was interested in purchasing the " HomeSoap, $95.96 With Code ‘INTHEKNOW’ (Orig. $119.95)" at the price advertised; however, when I click on the link to take me to the PhoneSoap website the price for this item is 199.95. Many would consider this to be a bait and switch tactic which is not ethical. Either you where provide…

  10. How to Improve IN THE KNOW

    It is both sad and frustrating that "The Yodel" (Yahoo's daily newsletter) appears to be yet another biased media outlet for its writers or owners to present an extremely slanted (if not twisted) version of the truth to further their own political views. The Oct 2nd newsletter had the following headline:

    "Melania's former friend and adviser released audio of the First Lady complaining about having to decorate for Christmas, among other things. In fact, she said, “Who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff?” Just in time for Halloween."

    That is disgustingly taken out of context and anyone who listened to…

  11. Derogatory term in Morgan Greenwald's article on McDonald's Fries

    Writer Morgan Greenwald's article on McDonald's fries refers to the leftover garbage in the McDonald's fry oil as "gook." I am offended by the use of a derogatory term for asian people in your article. Are your editors oblivious to the term? There are far more appropriate words out there like crumbs, junk, and garbage. Please do better.

    Regarding https://www.intheknow.com/2020/05/02/best-weeder-gardening-tool/ which states, "This gardening tool lets you weed your yard without bending over" You need to take a good look at the video you have for I see the guy "bending over".

  14. Baby Hacks DANGEROUS

    In the article "Baby Hacks", the first two ideas are extremely dangerous and should be pulled from airing. I am a Pediatrician working in a hospital and think that two of these ideas pose a serious risk to injuring or killing kids. Taping the plastic bag of glitter or tiny objects to a high chair is a terrible idea. The bag could break or accidentally open and baby puts those tiny pieces in mouth potentially causing a suffocation hazard or aspiration into the airway. Also, no parent should allow a baby to play with a plastic bag. EVER!!! These are…

  15. A big miss

    Regarding Dillon Thompson Snoop Dogg/Raising Cane's article. Thumbs down to either Mr. Thompson and/or his editor for a major amateur-esque omission in the article: nowhere does it mention where (as in what city) this took place. smh

  17. Leave a spot for comments instead of glorifying a piece of junk that the seat cushion goes flat in a month

    Leave room on the web site for people that bought this piece of junk can comment. The seat cushion goes flat in a couple of months and its like sitting on an old wooden chair. Not worth $35.00.

  19. Support your articles with stories that appeal to all not just Yahoo's agenda for indoctrination.

    Normalizing Black luxury is a broad topic and should also include those who are living the life and are not bedecked bejeweled and lip glossed like your unfortunate subject. Once again white America loves to deride or make mockery of the black effeminate male. Yahoo do BETTER!

  20. New Garden Tool That Picks-up and Rounds-up Leaves In-One-Motion. Just in Time for Fall.

    Dear ITK,
    Check out this video of our new outdoor hand-tool that professionals are using to gather and pick-up cut trimmings, leaves, etc.
    https://youtu.be/RaCXUwoXlGw

    No other professional tool company has a tool gathers and picks-up the cut trimmings, and leaves as easily and quickly as ours. Some trade professionals say that the PADDLE GRABBER is a great option when gas operated equipment is not allowed. And with California considering a statewide ban on gas-powered garden tools, our new tool will be a great alternative to using leaf blowers.

    For more information please visit our website: www.grab-all.com

    Sincerely,
    Hector Avila
    Founder…
