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].

You just don't stop do you? LOL!

I did ask for people to sign. I even added a courteous "please"

You really are so off base on this attempt at degradation that I have no words to really express how ludicrous your attempt to somehow make me in the wrong for how I chose to word the subject truly is.

The only person being confrontational between the two of us at least, as you put it in this entire little back and forth round is you my friend. I simply will not sit back and let you twist my words out of proper context. I have said, over and over, that we / I know others don't like Janeway. And that's okay. All we're trying to do is reach out to others who do feel the same as we ..

I have been far more respectful, and shown you considerably more courtesy than you have shown to me.

Even in bringing up the other topic, placed in the TrekLit area as it does relate to the Trek Books..

The title was/is "Bring Back Kathryn Janeway to the Voyager book! Online Petition!"

There's a limit to how much text you place in the subject, and while I didn't place "please" in there as I'd changed the title slightly, its original content has nothing that is confrontational or rude. Again, the only one here who continues to be confrontational and rude is you. You're trying to twist my words, and the words of others out of their context in order to degrade our view point. Plain and simple.
