Around here the homeowner doesn't get paid, per se, for the recyclables but none the less there is a business arrangement between the recycler and the homeowner.

The County operates the recycling center. The business arrangement is that they pick it up for free for the rights to have it and sell it. So, to take from the recycling bin around here is basically stealing from the County. Not that I think it's a particularly egregious crime but, technically, I think it would be a crime.

Don't participate if you don't like it. Simple enough.

This has been resolved.

Your argument is invalid.

If the title is any indication the thread was never about a specific case, it was always an example to discuss the issue in general.

Really. What more can be said?

Posting about it now is nothing more than wanting to hear yourself talk.

But, carry on.

I think posting about the topic is at least less about hearing yourself talk than something like that.

The specific case has been resolved, but the moral/ethical/legal discussion can still continue to be debated.

Sure it can. If you want to beat a dead horse.

If you have a new argument on the moral/ethical or legal dimension of the issue, make it.

If you do, it will be the first new thought on it in about 50 posts

If you don't you are just posting to hear yourself talk.

Have at it.

The guy who you posted the dead horse picture in response to was doing just that. Was on topic and you came out and were a complete jerk. Just calm down.
