I feel dirty just having followed that link.
I believe in treating animals humanely and with respect, but I absolutely abhor extremists.

More than that.
Even on the equally media-friendly parent site, they admit to condoning the acts of the ALF, likening it to the Underground Railroad and the French Resistance. They excuse many illegal acts, such as arson. It's right there on the site.
My personal experience with the ALF is that they're a bunch of thugs who wait at a 65-year-old furrier's house until he comes home and attack him in his driveway. That same night, they vandalized his shop.
No, I would not wear fur and I don't agree with practises in the fur industry. However, these actions are extremist, terroristic, and inexcusible.
EDIT: The repeated WE'RE NOT NAZIS undercurrent on that FAQ confuses and vaguely amuses me
