I thought that was Greenpeace.
And isn't their thing these days defacing world heritage sites in more or less irreversible and environmentally damaging ways?
Since when is Greenpeace spelled ISIS?!?
I do believe it is as simple, and obvious, as that, caps or not
While, I would assert, that all persons are humans, I would not assert that all persons are strictly Homo sapiens but in fact contain a fair bit of Homo neanderthalensis.
One day may come and one day we may be visited by extraterrestrials and knowing humans, it may well be a mortal insult to call them persons. On That Day(tm) the question can be revisited and some will choose to expand the definition of person, others will want to refer to them as what they are, or create and define a new noun.
Should we treat chimpanzees that way we do? NO
Are chimpanzees feeling, intelligent animals? YES
Are chimpanzees persons? NO
In may cases the way we treat animals or allow them to be treated is appalling. The same is also true of how humans treat other humans, as well. I'm left to wonder how long before the fact that I've had two of my dogs euthanized is no longer a legal act? The thought of having to prolong the suffering of or put them through treatment that has little chance of success and a high chance of increasing their suffering and shortening their lives, pains me deeply. There is a long list of potential unintended consequences to consider.
While I strongly believe this is a Bad Idea(tm) of epic proportions with a list of unintended consequences that seemingly has no end, after my initial visceral reaction, I am left to wonder. What led anyone, or group of anyone's, to think this was the answer? Even assuming we are all Good People(tm), do they believe someone will report an incident just because they can do some anonymously? Okay, so we'll put their potential targets on notice but, the report isn't really actionable. The attacker will still be at large and free to prey on someone else.
Anonymous reporting simply seems to be the wrong direction. What about actually changing how we treat and support the victims?
I've used a range of options over the years depending on circumstances from VPN, to my access point hardwired to their network to MiFi. While it's likely all/most readers here can do those things and more, that's not the point.
The point is most of the general public doesn't understand. Yes we can, and prolly do laugh and snicker at the luddites, unwashed and ignorant. In truth what hurts them, hurts us. Calling them "stupid" doesn't help, most of them are ignorant not stupid anyway. Is it really that unreasonable to expect that a hotel that provides a service that we are in fact paying for, does so with due dillegence?
Leonard: Not only is he still not talking to me, but there’s this thing he does where he stares at you and tries to get your brain to explode. You know, like in the classic sci-fi movie Scanners? (Put’s fingers to head) You know, bzzz-pchew! Never mind. How about this one. It says, “I know my physics, but I’m still a fun guy!”

Tired of long lines at TSA airport checkpoints? Today, the Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) began a transition to private security screeners rather than Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners in a change that promises more efficient security measures.
