rude? I think you get offended too easily, kinda like pre-pubesnt girl. Now THAT had a touch of rudenness
This thread was started by someone else, do yourself a favor and ignore it
and when you track me down what are we going to do? have beers? arm wrestle?
Perhaps if this was in the non surf thread-topic area your delicate sensitivities wouldn't have been damaged?
I hear ya brewengineer, I guess I am done with this, unfortunately, as usual, reason does not prevail at SI forums
This topic is never about reason, or science, or even GMO. We have been down this road many times. That is why members like pumpmaster are angry about it. It is one big mix of opinions and unrelated topics, with a hint of conspiracy to complete the dish. Show me a petition to force more studies and testing on GMO (not pesticides, as those belong in another discussion) and I will sign it. A petition to label something that most people know very little about is not something everyone wants to get behind. And most importantly, petitions and politics are not something most surfers like to discuss on a surfing website.
One reason I do like seeing this kind of discussion on a surf website is that surfers are a unique slice of Americana with a variety of opinions. (and everyone knows opinions are like butt-holes everyone got one and most stink) if keeping discussions like this in the non surf area stops people from getting sand in their vag, then that is understandable, however to say this isnt worth discussing with the tribe is not correct either.
GMO's are a HUGE deal here on Oahu....
thanks for the explanation as opposed to others' approaches
why shouldn't these discussions be on a surfing website?
you can always chose not to read it. Do you read every article in a newspaper? no. but something that you're not interested in may interest sombody else. when i look at the discussions i chose not to read anything under global body boarding. why? because it doesn't interest me. doesn't mean it shouldn't be there.
