really the word for it? I don't think so.
haven't heard the recent news about Akbar taking face parts, than you
must not come to Whyville much. The latest outrage against Whyville's citizens
has many of us starting
petitions to stop it. For a while, there was talk of Why-Passes that
stopped the parts from disappearing in 90 days, but it caused
controversy, and appears to not be an option for us anymore. Here's why:
the first arguments about the Pass was how long would the pass (that you spend your REAL money
on!) would last. It only lasts a month, or six months, or a year, depending on
how much you spend.
Next was the concern was, what
exactly would this Why-Pass do? It would only stop the parts from
expiring for the amount of time that the Why-Pass was good. Then the parts
would pick up where they left off. (Example: if you buy the Why-Pass when the item was
40 days from expiring, then when the Why-Pass expired, you would have
those same 40 days till it expires. The Why-Pass would buy you 30 days, or
180 days, or 356 days, but that's it.)
Finally, the last concern was not
brought up by the media but by my own thoughts. What if you didn't have a
check book or credit card? Cash is not accepted and your parents will
not pay with checks. Then how will you keep our parts?
Well, since all
this was brought up, Whyville put the Why-Pass idea to reconstruction and
thought. although there is not much we can do to stop this we can rise
up against it. Rally for our beliefs! Try having no face parts at all
in protest against Akbar. Remember, one cannot do it alone but
together, we can succeed.
