i dont wanna start any argument about it. The idea is simply stupid, and i feel pointing that out very directly is the best way of lighting that little lightbulb over peoples heads.
@CapitalO: i never implied they are especially harmfull to humans. I was refering to the entire ecosystem. And since i seem to be in the need of going into detail on that subject, here goes:
Solenopsis invicta now inhabit every single continent BESIDES europe in ammounts that cost several 100 Millions of Dollars to keep them in check ( NOT remove them!!). In their surronding, they decimate more then 90% of the biodiversity. Ever heard of Moromonium pharaonis? Go to your local zoo or hospital then and look around, youre bound to find them! No way of EVER getting rid of them. Who wouldnt want a phatogene carrier in our hospitals?
Using your car too much is harmfull to your ecosystem. Introducing an invasive species (especially when there are tens of thousands of other ants!!) to an yet unconquerd terrain is way beyond that. Ever met someone that would say AND mean "Nuke the Whales"? How would you react?
So yea, sorry if i am beeing harsh. Someone is needed to say what i say, since it seems easily forgotten on behalf of ones own hobbies. Im not taking chances to lose my message in sugar coating.
Thanks also ant dude for trying to mediate, but despite university taking most of my time, i still find time for those important topics, especially when i am the only one willing to dampen the spirits. And on any other topic, i consider myself to be a very friendly chap you wouldnt mind having a beer with
