    Alright, so, I admit, I am on the computer a good bit every day (if you haven't figured that one out by now). I'm a member of a few forums and a few virtual games. I've been a member of many other places as well. What I don't understand is, why do people feel that they have the right to violate most places' ToS (no harassment) and drag other people through the dirt to "ensure" that people are breeding to suit THEIR ethics? I mean, really? Come on people. Yes, yes, I understand that there are dogs in shelters, yada yada, but, really people, attacking a random person who posted that their dog had a litter is just plain silly. First of all, most of these people don't know ANYTHING about the situation. They simply hear that a litter of dogs was born, then they jump in and start ravaging the poor fool who dare thought they could share a neat experience with others. I truely wonder what kind of a person you have to be to think that everyone has to do something the same way that you do, otherwise they're "zomg, terrible people".

    And, no, this rant is not made so that I can hear about everyone else's breeding ethics, or that others are contributing to shelter deaths, because, really, there are plenty of statistics to hash this arguement in either direction.
    But, I do feel better that I could get this off of my chest without actually starting a big arguement with the people who inflammed this rant.
