“Like you, my Google Plus experience is lots of fun. For me, it has a more intellectual flavor than Facebook. Facebook is for the trivial and familiar (yes, I use Facebook too), while Google Plus is a discovery engine.”
“Betty Chu's rabbits receive the very best of care. She has dedicated about 30 years of her life to them. After their show careers are over, she keeps them in shorter coats. The rabbits are groomed daily and enjoy the attention.”

“I never said they were neglected. Just that carrying around that much fluff looks uncomfortable.”
“PETA's own hands are dirty. I suspect that the video may have been staged. Most Angora fiber from China (Betty Chu is an American citizen, btw) is removed from the animals ethically, by shearing. There is an article about it in this magazine: http://issuu.com/wildfibersmagazine/docs/summer_2011_preview”

“Yet it bared results? What would they earn from staging this in China?
“But, by golly, she has those wonderful American Quarter Horse Association World Championships! No one will ever be able to take those away from her! Yessir, that's what really matters!

“The horses received those titles and they should not be taken away. As for any titles, accolades, awards, or recognition awarded to her, those should be immediately revoked, and the hardware disposed of as the courts deem necessary. People now know that she's a fraud and what she did is not looked upon favorably, so it's unlikely she'll ever garner much support for herself and her plight.”
“It was just a sleazy excuse to show a bunch of triple D's, with a pathetic attempt to make it generally acceptable by saying it was for breast health awareness. Golly gee, it would never have occurred to me to keep my set healthy, NOT.
Why were they all huge cup sizes? We women have breasts in many sizes other than triple D, and a nice A cup is just as pretty, if not prettier, than big huge cow boobs.”

“I'm a woman and pretty much none of those pics on the first page even meet a D cup so I've no idea what you are talking about.
I do agree, it is lame, it also says it pulls pics from Instagram, which implies it isnt with the explicit permission of the women, just implicit as they posted to Instagram.”
“I agree they haven't been marketing Google Plus correctly. To market it as a facebook clone or replacement overlooks how it is actually used by those of us who like and use it daily. It is best looked upon as a "discovery engine."”

“As far as discovery engines go, Pinterest is doing a great job at attracting users, especially women. Pinterest chose images to be the way to share and discover things, maybe Google could learn from them but still try and be original.”
“Nope, not a "google shill." Just an ordinary plusketeer here to say that some of us enjoy Google Plus very much, and if it is not adopted by the masses, that is OK. Each social network system is useful for different reasons and different users. :)”
“I have been happily using Google Plus since July 2011; I think it is fantastic! It does seem to appeal to geeks, nerds, and intellectuals more than it does to the general public.
I follow over 3000 other people on Google Plus, and have made many wonderful new friends. Over 10,000 other people have me in their circles. However, it is incorrect to speak of Google Plus as a social networking site; in reality, it is a "discovery engine."”

“There are some Google shills commenting on this story. Sir you are one of them. Google+ is boring. I am not a big social media person but it pales in comparison to Facebook. I haven't visited my G+ account in months and do not intend to going back either.”

“((geeks, nerds, and intellectuals more than it does to the general public.))
Keep telling yourself that - if it makes you feel better. The reality is that Google+ is going to have an uphill battle wrt to Facebook/twitter.”
“Something else to consider is that not every horsie is a nice horsie. Those that are calm and gentle enough for anyone to ride are actually quite rare. Also, a horse's training regresses to the level of the rider. So, even a million dollar champion would become less reliable and less well trained after 30 days of riding and handling by a novice horse owner.”
