Reverb threatens kittens over Steam Greenlight votes

Reverb is in hot water after using a kitten charity to try and guilt votes from Steam Greenlight users. The company has promised $5,000 to the humane society if Edge of Space is voted in by October 15 and said the following statement in a press release:

"If the game doesn't get approval, that money will disappear, like a puff of smoke in the uncaring wind, leaving poor kitties to survive in the harsh elements, be placed in harm's way and possible be scheduled for euthanasia." (Edge of Space, PC)

Don't let the kittens die :(

The kittens die either way.

It's surprising how few people know what the Humane Society actually does. THEY'RE the ones who are conducting most of the animal euthanizations.

In 2010, for example, the Humane Society in Michigan murdered approximately 70,000 animals.

They're not the good guys in the animal rights movement--they're the bad guys.
