Plus a personal request from me which has nothing to do with Star Trek. Could you please remove that avatar with the hammer and sickle, a symbol for a system which has murdered more people than even the Nazis did.
Italics added to highlight the offensive portion.
This particular avatar is there to make a point in a thread in Misc and it will go when the thread is dead. However, since you bring the issue up, your statement is not true. It's merely propaganda designed to justify an anticommunist crusade that led to the murders of millions. A personal request from me which has nothing to do with Trek is to please remove this murderous BS.
