This is a question I have been asking myself of some of our newer, and younger members. One of the great things about being a fan of Jim Henson, and the Muppets is that they attract so many different kind of people. From all across the world men, women, boys, and girls of many different races, religions, and ages have joined this forum in hopes to join like minded Muppet/Henson fans. One reason people join is because sometimes when we share their love of all things Muppets to people who are not fans they get laughed at, mistreated or in some rare cases abused. One of the underlining messages of the Muppets is acceptance. On The Muppet Show it did not matter if they where a frog, pig, bear, or even a whatever, they where at the very least giving a chance to show the world who they where, and what they could do. Kermit the frog accepted the faults and failures of not only his friends, but himself whenever he sung the song “It's Not Easy Being Green” We here at Muppet Central should be able to feel the same way. Regardless of our age religion, or race we should feel welcome to be able to post on the forum, as long as we abide by simple rules that have been set in place for our own good. It is very easy to label people, who we may not understand, or even know. Names such as weird, odd crazy, or even spammer have been used throughout the forum, and some folks have started to feel so unwelcome here at the forum that they feel they can not post on here because whatever they post will get made fun of, put down, or just deleted due to there past actions. I personally feel that there needs to be more tolerant respectful,and patient towards everyone. I also feel that this should go across the board from the oldest member, to the newest member. So again I ask do you feel welcome here at Muppet Central, and if not what is it that we could do to help change that?
