I am bound and determined to not let this stop me. As far as I'm concerned, no matter what terminology is used, it's like Pokemon and the critters all just faint, because I'll be damned if I'm going to run around killing bunnies and squirrels.

I think I'm going to check the Beta forums. If there isn't already a topic on "can we please not kill our pets", I think I'm going to make one.
