saw this article online

This is an iniciative that the PVEM (Partido Verde Ecologista de México) proposed 5 years ago that Morena and the PRD were against at that time. Now they voted FOR it. It still has to be passed in the Senado, and they've already taken a step backwards in Comisiones by proposing to permit one more generation of dolphins to be born in captivity, meaning that instead of doing away with their existence in captivity within 25 or so years until all those in captivity die, the industry could exist in some form for another 50 or 60 years. Let's see if this ever gets finalized and passed and published in the Diario de la Federación which would make it law.

But it certainly sends the right message.

Now if we could just get pulpo removed from the Mexican diet and protected.

I agree! Dolphins should swim free and octopus should not be on anyone's plate.

Just curious. Why would you post something so intentionally divisive like this immediately after someone urging others not to eat octopus? Would registering your disagreement in a more moderate tone be so difficult?

For what it is worth, I agree with you. If we are going to eat other animals, then why should octopus be off limits? Although highly intelligent, they don't live very long. If their populations are falling precipitously because of over harvesting, then a possible ban or severe reduction of harvesting might be called for.

Your post, on the other hand, does not bring any dialogue to the table other than to rub salt into another's wound.

Again, I just don't understand why someone would do this. It's also the reason this is the only so-called "social media" forum that I participate in. (I am probably not correct in calling this forum a social media website.)

I have no reason to sugar coat what I plan on doing. Could care less if my double order of pulpo upsets someone. So I guess there is that. :wtf:

Hola
An octopus has nine brains and three hearts. I hope whatever part you intend to eat contains one of them. Hopefully it will help the tiny ones you have.
PS . I also don't eat calamari. Bet you do.

Funny how some people have the need to feel superior and judge people. Like Dave could give a rats a$$ of what we think of him or the names we might call him. Guess some people will never get the open forum concept but it can be entertaining at times. My guess is the virtue signaling makes them feel so good about themselves. I must be the worst person here as I have chummed for tuna many times with calamari.

Some people might “feel superior” based on how they live their lives.

Others might demonstrate their sense that the “feel superior” by saying, “I don’t care what you think”.

Still others seem to want to be jerks at every opportunity.

BVG Marina, quick morning bite then nothing. Going to try offshore Thursday. Guess we should give up fishing as we are just torturing those delicious mahi-mahi’s.

I’m Cool..and I choose my neighborhood and neighbors with care. Sure…I can roll past the Shitty responses. And for several years I just quit visiting this message board because the Usual Suspects were using dip-shit in their unwelcome and unhelpful responses. Sorry Rob. Zihuatanejo has experienced a lot of changes during my 16 years of personal experience with it. The Message Board contnues to harbor folks that are simply unkind and for me unwelcomed.

Your vegan motto is pure hypocracy. For every carrot you eat, you have killed hundreds of it's offspring by not allowing it to mature, go to seed and create more carrots.

What motivates someone to act in this manner? This is what puzzles me the most about this type of behavior. I simply don't understand the reward that one would get from trolling / acting like a jerk / doing one's best to upset, anger, put down, etc. others. It seems so juvenile, so middle school.
