If all you were trying to do was 'get the word out' about the petition's existence, the title of this thread wouldn't be 'Sign in the new petition for Bring Back Janeway, please'.

Even if it wasn't your intent, the way you chose to broach this subject - a petition for the 'Bring Back Janeway' cause - was very confrontational, especially given how volatile previous instances where this topic has been broached have been.
So.. let me just get this in my head...

Because I was polite, and added the world "please" to the title .. you want to twist that action into some sort of conspiracy where it's confrontational?

Do you really even believe in the hooey that you're trying to sell me?

It was a simple courtesy, adding a 'please' to the title rather than just a statement or a demand.

You make me laugh really. You're so determined to degrade me and everyone else who supports returning Janeway in the books by any means possible, you have even stooped to making that absurd accusation.

Really. You're proving my point for me better than anything else I could have said myself!
As I said earlier in both this thread and the duplicate one in Trek Lit, you can't beg or ask people to support your cause.

The appropriate and non-confrontational way to have made this petition's existence known would have been something like the following:
Myself and other members of the Voyager fandom who wish to see the character of Kathryn Janeway returned to the post-finale Voyager fiction have begun an online petition hoping to convince the individuals responsible for publishing those novels to bring her back.

If you are interested in signing this petition, you can do so here [insert link to the petition].
Edited to note that your original post in this particular version of this topic thread was much less confrontational than the one you posted in Trek Lit. However, you did come across as rather confrontatinal in said duplicate thread, and, as noted, included in your OP in said duplicate thread several false ideas as to the motivations behind the actions/decisions taken in terms of Kathryn Janeway's character and the Voyager Relaunch novels.
