PLEASE NOTE TO SEND MAIL YOU MUST REMOVE
THE LINE (PLEASEREMOVE)
In response to the
rising number of websites that promote, glamorize or trivialize cruelty to animals, we have put together this information to help you to do something to
stop it. Much of what you see on the Internet is created for the purpose of drawing attention to the author's website. They
are so disassociated with society that it doesn't matter to them if what they are displaying has any moral value. All they
are concerned with is the attention -- whether good or bad -- it is all attention and motivates them to continue their effort
to increase their hit count or reputation. To those types of sites, we encourage you to ignore them. Hopefully, without the
attention that they crave and the lack of interest in their site, they will go away.
In the past, we provided petitions
and worked to have the sites removed. Even though this process was successful, it also helped to draw attention to those sites.
We now feel that it is in the best interest of all concerned that we handle these things in another manner.
Should you find a site that is
promoting animal cruelty, here is what you can do:
Do not contact the website. The
author isn't interested in how you feel about him and what he is doing.
Do not send emails to all of
your friends and associates telling them about the site. Doing so would be promoting the site and, thusly, giving them what
they want -- attention. It is what they crave and you would only be fueling their fire. Don't give them any satisfaction.
Contact the ISP who hosts the
website to let them know about the abusive content. To find the ISP's contact information, use our Whois tool. The administrative and technical contacts
are who you should be sending your complaint to. The registrant is most likely the website author.
