Top 10 ways to justify cruelty to animalsIn light of the "cat in the wheelie-bin" incident, my many observations of people's attitudes IRL and on the internet (trolls excluded because we don't quite know their opinion), and being in a ranting mood due to lack of sleep and boredom, I would like to discuss the issue of animal cruelty. Or rather, people's weak justifications to inflict it.Top 10 ways to justify cruelty to animals by Lechensko
First of all, let me be clear that sometimes cruelty can't really be avoided. Whether it is for food, testing or for pest control, there is no surefire way to eliminate it altogether. In such situations it is completely unintentional. However, I do believe we have an obligation to minimise cruelty to animals where it is possible. So before I continue on to my point, I would like to admit these things:

Icons, wallpapers, themes, stocks, all free to use, all they ask for is a thanks or a fav if you use it, and they hardly get any!
I am not sure why it is like this, but it seems to be a common thing, in all these customize sections.

I see icons with 70 000 views, thousands of downloads, and 80+- faves.
Many of them write in the artist comment; "please show your support"
and we should!
Why should people who work hard for others keep on doing it if we can`t take a few sec to write thanks or a half sec to fav if we use or like it.
You can find things, legal, free, all they ask is some sort of reply, show your support and change this.
Thank you for reading
