I have known that something has been wrongheaded with Paul for a long time. I just realized he is suffering from early onset crotchety-old-man syndrome. Would you prefer a world where people chose the inferior product on a regular basis, for the sake of...I dunno, is variety the ideal you are clinging to here? Everybody should be reading everybody else's little bloggy wogs? Alibaba represents in many ways the ideal you are talking about in that it can connect people from all over the world, and provide them with amazing services. And you are upset because people are getting rewarded for their ingenious creations?

ditto oubliette. It sounds like the problem aren't the genetically modified foods, but the pesticides that some of them require because they have been immunologically neutered or something as a result of their human-assisted evolution.
This is like making weed illegal because of the violence it causes in mexico. Ok, not exactly like that. Still, the whole GMO thing is sooo way overblown. So many more worthwhile causes. I mean this one is not worth any whiles.
