Why should humans subject their prey to this idiocy when wolves and lions etc. do not?
You want animals to have equal rights as humans? Then they would need to pay taxes and be subject to our laws about not shitting in public and killing each other. Get a grip on reality, seriously.

As an AC pointed out Snowden's raw leaks being made public didn't stop reporters from selling stories on that information. I'm just calling bullshit on this idea that FOIA requests being published publicly automatically...will somehow hurt any reporter's story. If they're worried about another reporter poaching the info and publishing before them, they need to be better at their job. Have all the background written up and ready to go by the time the FOIA is being filed, then pull an all-nighter to finish the story when it comes out. Simple.

Guess this means those those journalists didn't really care about exposing the corruption/injustice/what have you in their story as much as they like getting the credit and praise for doing the exposing. This is why i don't like Vice; they can do a really good job of reporting and exposing bad people to be sure, but they rarely bother to offer up a solution or shy away from making simple poverty porn for more page views.

Never posted to leddit, aside from occasionally getting linked to a thread. And I sincerely doubt you were following the (derailed) topic if you're calling the people I was replying to SJWs anyways. Maybe get some sort of grasp of the English language and what the words you're using mean before you post? Just a thought.

"Historically" is a funny word to use in that context. In fact, it's purposefully misleading. "Historically" generally refers to times when humans were around, but you're talking hundreds of millions of years ago. The Earth was still forming, humans--primates-- hadn't even evolved. So why would that be our baseline for the historical norm? It isn't.

The longer the title, the less important the job.
