Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why was my join request denied?
A: You didn't read the rules.

Q: Why do you hate wolves?
A: We don't. We do, however, despise the rabid, childish fanbase and ignorant wolf advocates.

Q: Then why do you have a kill counter displaying wolf death tolls?
A: The kill counter is strictly for informational purposes, and is a tool which a handful of self-proclaimed "pro-wolf" websites and organizations also utilize. Our numbers come from the Department of Fish and Game (for each state, respectively).

Q: Why are you called "Anti-Wolf?"
A: The name is meant to be provocative in order to draw attention to our cause.

Q: What exactly is the point of this group?
A: Our mission is to be a powerhouse of knowledge regarding wolves, informing the public about their true conservation status, proving the dangers of wolves to humans, debunking the lies perpetuated by radical animal rights groups, idiots on the Internet, and wolf advocacy organizations, and promoting the welfare of lesser-known species that truly need our help and attention.

Q: Can I join your group?
A: Absolutely. As long as you're not a wolfaboo and provide reason for wanting to join.

Q: What is a wolfaboo?
A: A person who recklessly advocates for the lives of wolves at the cost of human life and livelihoods, and the ecosystem at large, often harassing and employing threats of violence or death against anyone they perceive as "anti-wolf" (e.g., hunters, wildlife conservationists, taxidermists, furriers), as well as deliberately perpetuating false information about wolves in order to further their radically "pro-wolf" agenda. Not to be confused with wolf fans, who merely harbor a modest interest for the animal or enjoy drawing them.

Q: Your group location says North America; can I still join if I'm not from there?
A: Of course! Anti-Wolf is a global group. North America was selected because we focus moreso on wolves in the United States. We still provide information on wolves all across the world, however.

Q: Why did you hide my comment?
A: If your comment was hidden, chances are you broke the linking rule, or your comment was deemed nonconstructive/unnecessary. Such comments include those meant to negatively provoke group staff and members.

Q: How can I submit art to your group without upsetting my friends and watchers?
A: Submit your work directly to the group, and your watchers will not be notified.

Ok, another question.  If you block someone, and they use an alternate account and post a comment about you somewhere (not directly addressed to you but the comment will show up in your inbox if they directly mention you) does that still count as block evading?

I just read another hysterical, alarmist article on "climate change" ranting about "rapidly rising sea levels" and how "glaciers are melting at an alarming rate". 

Couple of problems with those claims though. 
1. If sea levels are rising so rapidly, why don't they actually name a place where there has been a measurable rise in sea levels?

Someone in the comment section responded that supposedly the sea has risen 9 inches over the last 150 years. Problem is, if that were true, some coastal areas would already be under water.  On top of that, a change that drastic would have been noticed everywhere.  I'm calling bullshit on that.

2. If glaciers are melting so rabidly, why hasn't there been a measurable rise in sea levels yet (since I'm calling BS on the previous statement)?

Another person in the comment section responded that the rise in sea levels just hasn't happened yet, but is "just around the corner".  However, if the glaciers are already melting so rapidly, there should have already been a noticeable rise in sea levels somewhere.  I mean, that water has to be going somewhere.

When I point this stuff out, the typical response from the AWG crowd is to call me a "brainwashed sheep" and a "denier".  Apparently logical reasoning, critical thinking, and common sense are concepts these people don't excel at, so they have to resort to name calling whenever someone points out the holes in their logic.
