Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

I don't think that was unfair at all. Spanking warnings don't only have to be given when they are starting to misbehave. They can sometimes just be a reminder of what can, and will, happen if something important cannot be followed. Like in this case, getting up on time for her dentist appointment. Especially as she has had a history of not getting up on time for things in the morning.
There were times where my children had been behaving well, but I still warned I would spank them if I wanted to make sure they would follow through on something important and they had shown problems in doing so in the past.
An example would be everyone doing their part to clean the house when we had company coming over. It's not something I really had an issue with in regards to my girls, but it was like pulling teeth with my son at times to do chores, especially any type of cleaning.
But when my son knew that Mom would spank him if he didn't do his part, I almost never had to follow through with that warning or threat. At least when he got to be older.
There is a point you need to let them fall on their own and have them learn the real life consequences of what happens if they don't follow through. But letting that control go and stop giving them consequences, can be difficult.
