fair shout fella, i admit that i do have some very strong and maybe (!) stuborn opinions! but like u said a line has to be drawn somewhere.
it's just that back home the exact same thing happened. ten years ago i was at a reptile show and was asked to sign a petition stopping "animal aid" from banning reptiles as pets. at first i didn't believe that it was needed, but now...jesus if we'd known!
ps i did sign anyway! thats the rebel in me. lol
