back to article Cockfighting Reg hack cursed with cancer

My piece last week on a chance encounter with the film Cockfighter didn't go down to too well with one anonymous animal lover. Hiding behind the safety of a Tor Exit Router, the evidently unhappy bunny flamed away: For promoting cockfighting, I hope Lester Haines entire body gets riddled with cancer and dies a slow and …

It's always deer season ... if you're friends with your local sherriff, that is. Most road-kill deer are at least 50% usable, if you get to them in time. I don't hunt anymore, but thanks to clueless tourists, I always have venison in my meat locker here in Sonoma, CA. Waste not, want not.

Shake & Bake? Are you ill? A little salt & pepper, and a very hot grill is all you need ... and indeed, any more ruins the flavo(u)r of wild game. IMO, of course.

¿Títulos? ¿por qué?

Hijo de puta would be more accurate, as given it is dearest El Reg, chances are it is a bloke!

Slightly off-topic, but what drives someone to post such bile? We can all get angry and throw our toys out of the pram, from time to time, but FFS, that is a seriously disturbed individual.

I`d get my coat, but it`s 32 here and, in my terrible Spanish, es demasiado caliente para un abrigo

Re: @icetrout

Our local butcher dresses game for a lot of the hunters around here, and also makes some fine venison sausage and the like. So we can get fresh venison in season, and frozen or otherwise preserved much of the rest of the year. Just one of several reasons why a good local butcher is so much better than the meat counter at the local gigamart.

Re: pish

My Rottie is currently acting as babysitter for the first litter[1] of kittens we've had here on the ranch in years. Gut feeling is that they will be pushing the big softie around in a couple months ...

[1] Stray came in *very* pregnant ... All our cats are spayed & neutered. She will be. Currently, she's in my lap, on a "kitten break" ... My main whippet is miffed that the Rottie took the nursemaid's job, but he'll deal with it :-)

Oh yes indeed!

I was once bitten *through* a pair of heavy duty gloves while trying to assist an RSPCA officer. The contractors had just dumped the old barbwire they were replacing and it had become tangled in it.

Ungrateful sod didn't seem to appreciate the fact we were trying to help...

Re: pish

Lester, I have a licence for kittens vs hammer. I'm pretty sure if you hold the rottweilers by their hind legs and hammer them down on the kittens that would be covered. Alternatively, you could just paint a hammer on the rottweilers. Or on the piranhas (take waterproof colour in that case). Or on about everything that is willing to tear up kittens.

Sounds good. Let's do lunch. My local bistro does a nice "Endangered Species Mixed Grill". I can recommend the Siberian tiger and Iberian lynx kebabs, in a Hawaiian monk seal fat sauce sprinkled with powdered Sumatran rhino horn.

Livestock should be raised in really good conditions and treated well, lots of room, no stress, they then taste better!

To be fair..

..you are a bit of bell-end for promoting cock fighting in the previous article.

You basically seem like the Jeremy Clarkson of the IT world. And just to be clear, that really isn't a compliment.

Lester told us he actually went to a cockfight and put money on it: that promotes it for sure.

If you are saying that you are about to hold a cockfight then I hope you get caught and go to jail: there is no excuse for animal cruelty, which is why it is illegal.
