    Yes, I think it will change the face of the web ;-)


    Of course it won't cause a paradigm shift, but it can be used to show that many people/users are not at all impressed but annoyed with "sleak" flash sites, which might just be enough to convince a few people/sites.

    I think a more suitable title for this petition would be 'stop half-assed web developers making incompatible sites solely using Adobe Flash', and to be honest that's one hell of a challenge and nothing a petition will change. To be fair, a number of purely-Flash sites do provide a standard HTML alternative, and if they don't you should be contacting the developer directly.

    Okay, I signed it! #42
    To be honest, I don't really care. In fact, I can't tell the difference and I have no idea what java and flash really do, let alone why I should like either. I really just signed it because zeep supports it and I've always thought zeep's avatar is hot, unlike TSW's sig. You see, I've had a thing for zeep for a few years now. Deep down inside I want to believe Zeep is a chick and her avatar is really her image with some cool effect.

    Alright, I've gotten that off my chest. Back to business-------> :lock:

    ... *Distrubed*

    I myself only really signed it becuase flash takes ages to download and get going, and on 32k dialup it's a bloody pain sitting there waiting for it. I know Relic's official Company Of Heroes: Opposing Fronts site is purely Flash, what a pait that was trying to find info about that or screens before it's release, it's not like downloading the screens alone didn't take long enough.

    Check it out! My avatar and your avatar look as though they could hook up in real life. Mine is a wiggerish arab dude and you're chick looks kinda like one of those hot strippers that's into black dudes, but has to date wiggers so she doesn't p!ss off her parents.

    If we hooked up this way, it wouldn't come off so weird. Like I'm human and can't be with an avatar, but two avatars could be together. :wavey:

    Looks are deceiving.

    She hates 2Pac. She finds he's made to be like the Lucky Dube of hiphop. His lyrics are considered psalms and overall people worship him for reasons that are unknown to her. He and everyone who worships him bore her. "He's always whining.", she says.

    Osama on the other hand is a man who she would like to sit down with and talk politics, religion, secret governments and such. I doubt that she would ever sit on him though.

    Best bet, you need to shape him up Pipe or go for cheaper, less educated women.
