I was not rude in any form in my original post , and if my other post was unkind, it was only because others were rude to me first. But I have checked out some other threads about this subject and I see pretty much how it goes. I urge everyone to dig a little deeper because this is not about starving, neglected horses like so many are led to believe. And from comments in other threads this is a common misconception. But as I stated earlier you won't change my mind, any more than I will change yours. I find ALL horse slaughter objectionable. And I merely stated the kind of people I was searching for. The treatment people have gotten from this group when starting these threads has a common feel.... those opposing are stupid, and treated as such, very rude replies and a condescending attitude from the group. I read some fairly knowledgeable replies, some downright ignorant ones too. So maybe its okay if , as someone who opposes this, I have the same attitude as the rest of you who support it...... you are the ones who set the tone... I have the same right to express my opinions as you do.... I have done nothing you all have not done to me and others.
