You see, this whole "debate" would be fine and dandy, except it's not a debate. It's a bashing thread. I will never call someone names for having a different opinion than me. Do you know what that's called? It's called being a bigot. So saying I'm "selfish" and whatever else was said is just childish and further proves that you're running out of decency in a debate so you have to take low blows. I feel sorry for those that can't debate without resorting to those sorts of things.
I am not against ear cropping or tail docking, if it is done properly.
It's hard to hold a debate when your argument is that in your "experience", ear cropping doesn't hurt. It's like someone in a debate on global warming claiming that the sun is not our source of energy-- it's so logically and scientifically ludicrous that it makes the person making the argument lose all credibility.
You can support ear cropping, you can have your dogs ears done however you like, but you can't claim it doesn't hurt, based on your "experience" without seeming ignorant.
And you still haven't explained what said experience is.
Many of us who understand and put into place post-op pain control protocols feel that needing to use a SEDATIVE following an ELECTIVE procedure simply to keep the animal comfortable upon recovery is nearly barbaric. For you to suggest that Moore's clinic simply didn't follow protocols for pain management properly makes your whole argument seem childish.
Do some research on pain response and management protocols and THEN suggest that ear cropping, just like ANY surgery isn't painful. The difference is, ear cropping is cosmetic and elective.
