    As someone who grew up in a tropical country, had dengue fever, and has seen friends die of hemorrhagic dengue fever, FUCK YES.

    Surprisingly, this article looked solely at it from (both sides of) the ethical standpoint. The ecological impact didn't even rate a mention! Usually, getting rid of a species can have unintended ramifications on other organisms (those who use it as a food source, etc etc). I'm not saying I don't want mosquitos gone, I'm saying that I was slightly shocked at the journalism here, that it didn't even consider the ecological viewpoint about the effect on other organisms. Even if it was thought that there would be NO issues, it would be helpful if they'd stated that, and the reason why.

      Sorry, buddy, but I beg to differ on this one, mosquitos kill and cripple more people than all other animals combined, and eliminating them, as far as anyone knows, would have nearly zero ecological impact.

      If you hate humans and think they’re better extinct I’d advocate for nuclear war or some more efficient and less annoying way to exterminate humankind.
