I guess this is "Goodbye"

The mods have spoken, and they will not tolerate my pointing out such inconsistencies as people being against whaling, but not giving a fig about the slaughter of other animals. I guess when the truth hurts a mod, it's "Bye bye".

Oh, no, Mukunda....!!!

Please stay!

You would be greatly missed by me and I'm sure by others as well!

Sometimes even mods get very engaged and passionate about some things.

Don't let it get to you.

Please don't go away. Talk to a mod of your trust about it.

Or perhaps we can all discuss this issue openly. I'm also not happy about the thread,but perhaps it's also a good time to step back and bow and graciously allow people to think differently, to be stubborn or remain in positions we find unacceptable for ourselves but make sense, if we put ourselves into their skins?

Mukunda, your going away is not accepted. :hug:

You're staying. :heart:

Btw, because i didn't say it over there, having my own discussion with a mod, I will say it here, and later over there as well,

that I agree:

That whoever is against whale hunting, must be against the mass production of animal meat too.

Sentient beings are sentient beings.

Whales are threatened by extinction, and I think we could use our time well by figuring out how we can react in useful ways, such as signing petitions, boycotting Japanese products and so forth.

Cows too used to have families (herds), just like whales and mourn losses.

The cow mothers are upset too, when the calves are taken away to meet an early death.

To end up on our plates.

How awful.

I haven't eaten any cow or calf in ages, because one lady cow in chains keeps looking at me with her with big brown eyes, through all the years, causing mine to become wet.

I think the main issue with whale hunting is the risk of extinction, not so much the killing of sentient beings.
