Care to elaborate? That only really applies to other people. I'm not going to treat my dinner on the same level as I would treat my family, for example.
I think using fish as feeders is completely humane. With some species its mandatory, even. I don't see it any different than hatching a batch of baby brine shrimp for fry food.
I don't like the way they keep feeders in the pet store, and have never bought one, nor do I ever plan to.
Everyone draws the line wherever they are most comfortable. I don't know anyone who has a moral issue with dumping their leftover BBS/eggs down the drain after feeding (mind you there are hundreds, if not thousands of live bbs in there), yet if you did that with a single fish then it would be a no-no.
