Exploitation seems non neutral as a title of a section given that it carries with it a strong negative connotation. I would think another word would be better. Anyone disagree?--Δζ (talk) 14:10, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
- The term does sound rather negative but, well, slaughtering animals for their fur is a rather negative concept, don't you think? Or should we take down those pictures of the bloody slaughtered pigs and dolphins? We don't want people to see that kind of butchery in a negative light, do we? Saying that a species is "exploited" for something is pretty common, just as any resource is said to be "exploited", whether that be forests for lumber or mineral resources or what have you. It doesn't need to be sugar coated. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:06, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
