@riotnrrd They don't deserve to be shot over and over. People have been making public fun of the coop for 40 years, usually because they think they have found something they can feel superior to. They make fun of the zealots (a significant percentage of those who attend General Meetings), and people who don't know any better come away with the impression that we're all a bunch of plastic-hating worm-composters.
Shooting fish in a barrel, Chad? Fortunately the coop is equally accommodating to single-minded zealots and snarky little twits. It's in the mission statement.
