    Sandy, most Spaniards find that tradition repulsive and shameful. They don't want to be associated with it and slowly but surely it'll be banned nationally. It's a matter of when, not if. There is a recalcitrant (yet small) cross section of the population that unfortunately supports it, the same ones who didn't have a problem supporting other shameful yet formerly legal practices that I would rather not mention. It's unacceptable. Spain has recently changed other contemptible laws. It's a matter of time at this point in history. The EU cut subsidies to fund such an abomination. What an unpresentable tradition. An embarrassment.
