Found posted in the ASPCA forum

I found the following post about instructables in the forum at ASPCA forum "PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!! The site below is promoted on FOX BUSINESS NEWS surely unbeknownst to Fox News Executives. Prepare to be sickened: https://www.instructables.com/id/Kitten_Stew/'
"Report this site everywhere and send emails to Fox News complaining about Fox News promoting this web site on Fox Business News and allowing this site to state on its web site that Fox Business News promotes and therefore supports the site. www.instructables.com

I can understand someone being upset about finding the recipe for Kitten Stew on a site they saw promoted on a national news channel, I myself felt it was in poor taste when I saw it, but to each their own.
What I don't understand is why someone would post something like that and risk hurting the site as a whole?
I believe in a persons right to free speech and freedom of expression, but I also believe that as a member of a community ( both on line and off line ) we all have the responsibility to use common sense and self restraint else we not only make ourselves look bad but the community as a whole.
From what I have seen the instructabel on how to make Kitten Stew is not in violation of the sites rules, but, does that mean it should have been posted? I personally think that it should not have been, but that is my opinion. I do think that we all need to ask ourselves one thing before we consider posting something that might be offensive or possibly harmful to the site,
Just because I can post this does that mean I should? In the case of the recipe for Kitten Stew I think the answer should have been no.

Oh my goodness! One ible, in slightly poor taste, what a bunch of whiners! SARAH- Get a life! BTW- Lots of folks have substituted cat for hare over the years. It's certainly not to my liking, but I'm sure there are lots of people in the world who would be offended that people look down on them for eating cats. To complain about another culture's dietary choices is very narrow-minded and ethnocentric.
I had an uncle who use to substitute cat for possum, when the possum supply ran low.
It's really just a cultural issue. Meat is meat. I'm not interested in eating pets, but I'd be hypocritical if I looked down on someone who did. What if I like to eat homegrown-plants? Is that barbaric? I water them, take care of them, and even talk to them. Is that worse than eating a particular species of animal?
maybe ASPCA thinks that cats are too cute to be joked upon

The project was humorous. That should be obvious to anybody who even glances at it. "Sarah" should get a life and find something genuinely important to get upset about.
. Excellent post on the ASPCA forum. Your last paragraph pretty well puts it in perspective.
I think Messieur Kiteman was quite kind and refrained from calling her Numptie. Good thing he didn't mention any of the other un-politically-correct ibles like toasted barbie dolls and lasercut PETA steaks.
She probably thought she was doing right, just didn't bother to read it properly, or in context, so I went easy on her.
Those "types" rarely bother to read anything properly. They live on emotions.
considering the world has too many cats...
