You have no idea how angry that makes me. That is absolutely disgusting. Anyone that uses those for their bird does not deserve to be a pet owner.
This is an item that is on sale and which might seem helpful to some pet owners. I know nothing about it. I don't know how safe or comfortable these are. Have you checked them out? Have you checked with experts? Have you seen how birds respond to them?
They may be horrible for the birds to wear, or they may not be bad for them at all and might, therefore be useful to owners. I don't know, but to tell someone that 'Anyone that uses those for their bird does not deserve to be a pet owner', without even checking it out is too harsh, I think.
Even if you knew that they were harmful, friendly advice would be more acceptable than a comment like that - don't you think?
If you are angry and disgusted by this item, then that's fine to say so, but it is not right to insult fellow forum-members.
