: Here is something for you to "yawn" over. You have absolutely nothing to lose, as does Snakebite. I find it insulting that you point to the "janitors balls" when you really have diddlie to lose. If real courage has to do with putting your job on the line, just where do you two sit in this. No where.
FWIW, I picketed in the early 80's, watched self-serving fellow animators cross the picket line for work as I fruitlessly sacrificed my own job while being seen by potential hirers as a "bad egg" Union picketer. Courage?
To this day, I picket when my industry is being unfair or unethical no matter my personal situation. Whether the outcome is worthwhile or fruitless, is not the question. It's all about what's right and worth fighting for in an industry that has turned ice cold in the human factor.
You should really think about that the next time you rant about people on the outside on their so-called "perches".
Like I said, it could just as easily be you out here. And no doubt it will be some day if things don't change.
Cahonies. Courage. Call it what you will. There is a fight to be fought and it's not imaginary. And yes, I do admire those that will picket who are already holding full-time jobs. I admire them a lot.
