Not only that - I highly doubt a marine fish from captivity, taken at a young age will have the same resistance to parasites and natural occuring conditions than a fish that has been living in the natural enviroment its entire life. I would assume Peta would end up euthanizing many of the fish they are planning on saving if thier wants and desires were to see fruitation.

In any instance I dont think Peta really has a clue about this hobby. The part of thier article that suggests people with an interest in fish use one of the many screensavers avaliable really shows thier level of knowladge on the hobby. My hope was to increase that level of knowladge by coming to them as a Peta member and hobbysit - sad to say it didnt work. Unfourtantly I wont be a Peta member much longer.....

Very much not....you have no idea just how much trouble for AA that could cause....PETA has many less than ethical persons on their side....we hardly need to be hacked.

Little bit of a joke, dude. Don't take it seriously.
It's true though. That could very possibly be their response. And would PETA (as an organization) condemn the action? No . . . even though hacking could be considered "cyber terror".
Since they have a whole deparment on this; they probably have already seen this website . . . maybe not this thread, but certainly our site.

You have to figure there are just as many who would love to hack PETA. A simple redirect could be hillarious in an infantile way. Imagine the following...

http://peta.org/index.html

Yes. It's childish and I would never do such a thing , but I'm sure somebody out there would consider it. Remember when Madonna spoke out against sharing mp3's and then somebody hacked her website and put her new album available for free download on her site? Yeah.

Anyways, I'm going to continue to ignore PETA. If they want to be heard, they need to stop yelling and start talking.
