    I stopped discussing in The Gulf War News, beacuse this is a Muppet forum. And I don't want to have fights with people I normally can talk with very friendly about Muppets.

    My statement is in my signature below as you can see

    Even though this IS a Muppet forum, I find that I enjoy discussions (although I'm more of a lurker lately) with my friends, even when I disagree with them. And I consider many of the people here to be my friends.

    It saddens me when feelings get hurt (sometimes permanently), because the overriding spirit here should be one of cooperation and friendship. That doesn't always pan out. Because WE aren't Muppets--we're people. *looking down under my chair* Yes. People.

    I'm glad the war discussions are taking place, and although I tend towards pacifism, now that Melissa's brother is on his way to Iraq as a Marine, I'm kinda rooting for the U.S. and our military just to get him home to his wife sooner. I don't understand or agree with the reasons we're there, but I think discussing them with people like y'all at least gives us an opportunity to share our feelings.

    Anyway, I think the discussions are good. Attacks are bad. And sometimes Penguins WOULD make good presidents, despite their lack of thumbs. And their smell.

    I agree with what everyone said here. There's nothing wrong with an off-topic discussion, but too often when it comes to politics, the discussions become inflammatory, in which case they should probably just be dropped. This isn't War Central, it's Muppet Central. And your friendships are all too important to me to let it be ruined by this.

    I think general patriotism and support for the troops is acceptable. I think a peace symbol is acceptable. I think deliberately inflammatory images are not acceptable, say, putting Saddam Hussein in one's avatar.

    Radionate, I love your avatar. It makes me laugh and gives me a small level of comfort to know that somewhere out there, the Newsman is dutifully, if ineptly, attempting to cover the war on location...in Sheboygan.

    Luke, I was all ready to head to the voting booth. Then I realized -- your penguin must be British! You can vote him into Parliament, but I don't think any of us can vote him into the presidency!

    I just got this Sam the Eagle avatar for a role play, Rowlf was already taken, the nice person who made it just made it this way, i don't think it's wrong, but if people feel it may cause problems or a little tention, i'm more then happy to take it down and could play a diffrent muppet in the role plays.

    Heh, yeah, I think the running gag needes to rest its legs a bit..

    But to finish it off proper:

    Great Pez Punch Zack! I guess it doesn't take a good soldier to make a good punch! Er..that came out wrong.. ;)
