In Support of Steve Petition

    I've never been very good at getting movements going, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I wanted to send something to Disney in support of Steve Whitmire, and I have heard that, in cases like these, physical mail is more attention-getting than e-mails or online petitions, so I've decided to send them a brief, but polite note of support written on green felt, and I'd like to invite anyone else who supports Steve to do the same.

    I'll be sending it to:
    Muppets Studios
    c/o The Walt Disney Company
    500 South Buena Vista Street
    Burbank, CA 91521-4873

    Good idea, Deadly. I should send one too when I get a chance. I know we can't guarantee this will be effective, but (British accent) "It's worth a try, Rizzo."

    Too bad we didn't see all this moral outrage on here when they dumped veteran Sesame Street actors.

    I like the idea, but if you're sending this to Disney, then I wouldn't even bother. I mean, since when do THEY listen to fans?

    Yeah. I know what you mean. It's like that Taco Bell commercial with the cursing into it that I mentioned before on the other thread, "corporate big wigs," don't seem to listen to people's complaints or concerns. It's sad but what can you do?

    Even Sesame Workshop doesn't listen.

    Sometimes venting does help to get it off your chest, even if nobody will listen. I have a short fuse, and venting is how I let it out. Most coporations are only in it for the money, and they don't care about John Q. Public.

    Yeah. That's why it's best for my to voice my complaints here. Not only was Friday's not listening to my complaints about that offensive ad, but when I tried to address it on their corporate office message board, not only did the company not listen but there was a total jerk on that board who was constantly calling me stupid and being rude and offensive. (Makes me wonder if he was one of the people responsible for that offensive ad.) Plus they didn't display the IP addresses or anything on that board so there really wasn't any way of tracing that guy so he could get banned from posting there. At least we don't have that problem here. This is a much friendlier forum. Yes, we've had some weirdos here and there but at least the moderators catch people who do that. Even if the public won't listen to our complaints about things, it's nice to be able to voice our concerns about things without any risk of being chewed out or insulted or whatever.

    Yes, it is always easier when disagreements with the most popular opinions are kept out of sight.

    Exactly. Everyone has different opinions about these things and I understand that people may not always agree with me, but they don't have to be so nasty about it. Heck, I also had the same problem on the WB Message Boards when "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" was on that network. There was a poster there who was getting real nasty and insulting people who watched the show and when I got mad at him, a bunch of other people on the board got mad at me and said he was just stating his opinion. So that mad me mad as well, because being rude and nasty is NOT stating an opinion. Seems like a lot of people on that board were as bad as he was or even worse.

    Sorry if I'm getting off topic here, but since we got into that discussion, I thought this would be a good place to vent about all the crap I've had to go through on message boards. I don't like to fight with people, but I've had people push me to that point. That's why I like the way this board is run. Everyone here has always been courteous and respectful for the most part and the mods catch the people who aren't. It's a win-win situation.

    Yes, like the Muppets themselves, we must be cute and sweet, not rebellious with conflict.

    Why they don't listen?

    He's not wrong.

    I mean, how many change.org petitions have you seen actually succeed?

    That's what I thought.

    I tried a petition a while back when a cigarette company was "rewarding" smokers over 18 by saying they could win a flat screen TV and that must have been effective, because the company stopped doing that after I sent that out. Could have been a coincidence, but you never know.
