| Worthwhile post, Linz, though, in my varied forum-readings on SOLO, I can't say that I've noticed many grey (er, gray, um greay?) postings; doesn't seem that SOLO really attracts many of that type (though provocoteurs are noticeable.) I'll have to recheck that section.|
True, one can say that Mengele-type 'studies' could (had?) produce useful 'benefits' to medical-techniques and knowledge for the future, hence, argue that any thing that's considered immoral (rape, whatever) can have some ('unintended' even) beneficial consequences; but, what may be beneficial isn't always worthwhile. Else, 'silver-lined clouds' justify the idea that 'the ends justify the means', intended or not.
However, for sure, Joe Maurone has a solid point relating to your complaint. Worth thinking about re giving any 'response' to the, uh, non-b&w posters. Stick to responses in terms of 'good/bad' (or moral/moral-worthlessness) and its easy to argue back...if one's so inclined to bother.
