The recent episode with the (simplied)spellingsociety has given me the idea that it might
be both fun and good to try and identify on a monthly basis an ISSUE, an EVENT, a CAUSE,
etc. upon which we can call upon Kupikians to voice their opinions and concerns. (I will
use the term “cause” to include everything from now on in this post.)

I propose that we utilize this club to organize this activity. While there are many worthy
causes, I suggest that we try and limit our efforts and concentrate our power with one
cause at a time.

My suggestion is that club members should submit nominations (and this can be done at any

The nomination should minimally include a brief description of the cause, any relevant URL
links, any relevant contact information, any timelines or deadlines if there any. And your
“Call to Action” which is your argument for why we should take action and specifically
what it is you want us to do.

Most actions are going to consist of an email campaign, or possibly “voting” if the
situation is one of a voting nature, or possibly a boycott of some sort, but other things
like actual letter campaigns, etc. are also possible.

We will gather nominations on a continuous basis and every period (whether this is weekly
or monthly) we will take a vote on whether to make it our Cause for that period.

Keep in mind that certain causes may not be received well, many members may even disagree
with your Call to Action, but fundamentally discussion and exposure to differing points of
view is what this club is all about. So even if you think your Cause or position on a
Cause may be unpopular don’t be afraid to submit it.

Once we have our adoptive Cause we will spread the word on Kupika via our usual methods
and try to get Kupikians to assist with the Cause.


For each Cause create a separate discussion thread, the creator of the thread will be
considered the sponsor. In this way we can keep each separate and also both discuss and
“vote” on whether it should be our adopted Cause for the period.

On THIS thread, I will update and post below the current Cause and a link to the
discussion thread so that you can check here for what is the current Cause we have

….currently none….

Eddie, you really do rock. I suggest closing down illegal puppy mills. But of they are
illegal, they won't just put their contact info out in public... damn it, that was a good
idea. >.< How about..... argh. I'll come up with something, trust me. It may take a while
though; I'm not good at thinking. <3

ok. thats not a bad idea so like try and do some research and bring the topic into focus.

like maybe there is a big organization responsible for overseeing breeders or check what
the American Kennel C? or whatever that organization thats responsible for regulating dog
breeds, etc. has to say on the matter.

Find out what PETA says about it, etc.

basically with any idea that we have we want to find an TARGETED (but easy) way that we
can do something about it, preferably one that we can actually see a measurable response
or get some sort of feedback on.
