Yeah, and very likely this is the aftermath of the 'site maintenance' -- it's a lot easier to mess things up than to make changes smoothly, without any side-effects (my word as SW-developer on that)

and 10, 15 years ago SW-developing was kind of a "blessed island", with mostly people of above-average intelligence and competence; but now this field has also been [SIGHHHH!!] subdued by the general stupidification & (acceptance of) in-competence, a prime motor of which is Mega$hit, er pardon me, micro$oft ...

People shouldn't be abusing farm animals to begin with. It's against the Creator (God). It would be very wrong
to abuse fish too.He didn't create all of them to abuse and destroy. Everyone needs to learn to respect life and
live peaceably with everyone else, no matter what the species. That is what He intended.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma

Ocean acidification will make factory farming of fish in U.S. waters impossible. Conditions on the earth will continue to deteriorate and make the production of all forms of food increasingly difficult. Rising food prices, food shortages, and famines will become much more common over the next few decades.

This petition is based on so many flawed premises, with the salient consequence having gone unrecognized or ignored, as to be unworthy of consideration.

The fact is that man is overfishing the oceans at an alarming rate, one that is driving whole species to the brink of extinction, which will result in a cascade throughout the entire oceanic food pyramid, causing wholesale collapse of the ecosystem.

If man wants to continue to consume fish at such a prodigious rate, he must grow them himself. Barring that, he must drastically reduce his consumption.
