OK. To whom it may concern:
Could we please do without the symbol and ideology bashing in sigs and avatars? It looks bad. Sure, to you it’s a statment about all that is wrong with the institution it represents. But when someone else who is a believer in that symbol, or ideology sees your statement. They see it as an attack on the ideals behind that symbol, or ideology, on what it represents to THEM, not to you.
In other words, one person’s burning symbol of hypocracy and shame is another’s desecrated symbol of self-sacrifice and good.
Look I’m all for freedom of speech, but putting this kind of “statment” in your sig or avatar is not the best way to promote the friendlyness we pride ourselves on here.
Allright I’m off my soap box now.
