Begone, Pink Slime!

Yay!, so glad that McDonald’s has made a public announcement about removing “pink slime” from their meat processing.

I found Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution show really interesting, watching the first few episodes Hulu, and was sad to find out that the Los Angeles season got cut off after the first few episodes. I think it’s great, and direly needed, to know more of what goes on in the food production and processing system in America. It’s such a complex and dispersed network that it’s naturally all too easy for very important, and potentially harmful, information to never come to light.

Anyway, no more ammonium hydroxide in already last-resort meat!

    That’s great, I’m impressed. Snaky!
    But I’m afraid that promoting Etsy products here on wordpress is not allowed. You should read more about it.

      thank you for your comment, as well as your concern! i hadn’t heard that before though, so i checked up on it online. as i am linking to my own creations and work (all my links/images are related to my own work done by my own hand, be they paintings, jewelry or words&thoughts), it seems that i’m in the clear.

      if you, or anyone else confused about this issue, would like to read more on this, here are the sources i checked:

      from wordpress itself:
      Blogs that violate our advertising policy or fall into one of the following categories are not allowed on WordPress.com: Affiliate marketing blogs:[…] To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category.

      there is further discussion and clarification in the support forum thread.

      the bottom line seems to be, as a staff member posted, “‘real blog’ is the key,” meaning so long as my content is personal/real and my links are to sites not of the sketchy nature, most things are okay. they’re just trying to cut out “web pollution.” (i like that phrase! and agree with the sentiment.) if you’re still unsure, you can explain your situation and ask the staff.

      hope that clears up the air some!

      phewf, honestly, going through all those articles made me kind of paranoid and wondering about internet free speech, but i’ll rest secure in the fact that wordpress just wants genuine bloggers and supports personal voices without the crazy adverts. and wordpress staff, if i AM doing anything wrong, please contact me and let me know :)
