I am in the process of making a page that is environmentally/animal welfare-oriented. I added lots of "urgent" animals, listed by state. I think it's about time myspace be used for something other than gossip... it's has .. what 100 mill subscribers? Can't we put that to good use? Add me as a friend if you are on the site.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=110312785" target="_blank">http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...ndid=110312785</a>

Hi. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I will add you. Lately, this is all I use MySpace for; posting bulletins about animal rights & adoption.

There's a bunch of us there. <a href="http://www.myspace.com/ananimalfriendlylife" target="_blank">Add me</a>, look through my friends, and all their friends, and you will see many, many MySpace profiles advocating for the animals. I get more bulletins than I'll ever have time to read...

That's an awesome way to use MySpace becca! Hopefully some of them animals get rescued through your efforts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Just as a friendly criticism, I found the opening picture you have to be a little offensive, so I'm guessing others might too which could end up stopping people from reading the rest of the page. The way it was designed with the big equal signs makes it look like you are comparing black people to cows, though I know it wasn't meant to read like that it just comes off wrong.

Well, it's meant to compare people to cows. That's part of speciesism- favoring your OWN species. Part of the reason I have been vegetarian/vegan since I was 7 years old is because I have never viewed humans as any more special, wonderful, dominant, or important than any other creature. We are <i><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>all</b></span></i> animals!!! Ohhhh but this is a whole other topic, and now people will be replying "so, we are equal to mosquitos?" Sorry to go off on a tangent. I am SO passionate about this.<br><br><br><br>
I will change the picture because it didn't cross my mind that it would deter people from the page. I had only received compliments thus far. Thanks so much for letting me know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I just wanted to say thanks for adding me & also that I love what you are doing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I wish there were more people out there (and on MySpace) who were the same.<br><br><br><br>
Also, I didn't find anything offensive about the image you previously had set as your default. I love the image(and in fact, have it posted on my own profile). I think it really gets the point across that discrimination & the devaluing of any living being are just wrong. It's purpose is not to offend, but to point out that we are <i>all</i> equals. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

I know that's supposed to be the purpose, but most people don't see it that way, unless they're already into Animal Rights and then it doesn't matter.<br><br>
I like the new one you choose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Sounds like a great idea, I belong to the care2 network but do not have a myspace page. I guess, in the next few days I will make one in my time off though and join you in our efforts.
