... to the pertinent issue here, you get on a soapbox.
What is acomplished with your rhetoric? People sit here, read your post, and then start laughing because you are scolding someone for bringing their pet dogs on a vacation with them. Sure, their are irresponsible dog owners, as well as hikers, bikers, campers, etc, but the general populace does not equate dog owners with evil environmental destroyers. This statement makes you lose credibility with the average person in this country-- get your message across without offending the masses.
