Micechat is a wonderful and fun website dedicated to all things Disney .. and several other "fun" related things in life. And for those who seek more "serious" discussion we have sections for that. And those who don't like it .. simply don't click into those sections.
Now .. as far as our signatures are concerned ... I've seen so many different types .. that have me on the floor laughing. Some .. representing an aspect of our lives, but for the most part .. they are kept fun.
Disney related signatures .. like mine refering to DCA .. and the surrounding snowflakes to represent the winter months we are in now (and my love of winter .. and all things related to this fun season Let's have a snow fight )
Disney related ... hobby related .... they are quite diverse ... but I just noticed one that I felt crossed the line into POLITICS.
An example can be found on this page:
Instead of poking fun/political humor .. it's an AD for people to join.
I'm sorry .. but I feel that is going too far. I'll leave my "political" opinions out of Micechat, but suffice it to say, there's a few things I'd like to say about "the Right" ... but my main motivation here, is how it pains me to see sigs are going beyond just "cutsie" stuff, and now entering the relm of serious stuff. And in an area I feel is taboo.
I stay out of politic type discussions in the sections that can be found on Micechat .. but when someone has to throw a political statement within their signature as I'm reading DL topics in the DLR section .. Why do I we have to have that?
Blocking this person out on my preferences isn't the answer .. if this idea starts to spread with other posters. And I happen to like that poster and what they say .. as well as so many other posters ........ but can we leave out "The Republican Party is great - Join in" ... "The Democrat Party is great - Join"?
So .. again ....
I could go into and simply block out signatures .. though I would hate to do that .. and miss out on 99% of all the other fun signatures that I enjoy reading ........
I could block that person out ....
But those short-term answers are not the long-term solution.
I ask the entire Micechat Community .........
Can we PLEASE leave out the "come join our political party" signatures?
I'm not exactly happy with this new brand of signatures. I don't come here to Micechat to have politics spill into the "Disney/fun" related discussion that I enjoy.
I HUMBLY thank all of you.
