PETA is pathetic

I’m not even going to begin to get into exactly how PETA is utter shit and deserves nothing but scorn for many reasons, but this perfectly exemplifies PETA at its pathetic best.

From the link:

Just because they named their new CD “Yes,” does not mean that British electro-pop duo, the Pet Shop Boys, will agree to just about anything.

The band has turned down a request from an animal rights group to rename itself the Rescue Shelter Boys.

The organization, the People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe acknowledging that its request, at first blush, might appear “bizarre.”

But, by changing its name, the band could raise awareness at every tour stop of the “cramped, filthy conditions” that breeders keep animals in before selling them to pet stores, PETA said in its letter.

  1. Ask a “main street” American how the economy is doing and they’ll say ‘we’re in a recession, if not a depression. If you have a great product that somehow never seems to get the attention that it deserves, it may be that by creating a landing page and a campaign to drive traffic to that page is all you require, rather than a full website build and optimisation of every page on the website. Search engines take time to consider your page quality and all the other aspects of your page when you update something.
