Google - Stop Signature Censorship!

Google has worked hard to create their email client’s new look, but there is a problem with how it treats signatures. Whereas we can adjust to new button placements, altering the initial view of our messages is unacceptable.

Formerly, Google allowed recipients to see an untrimmed view of each new email’s content; now they must click “…” at the bottom of each message. This petition asks that Google revert to the former way as the default and only make signature-trimming optional.

We believe our signatures are important and for ease of reading we desire that Google not hide them from us or Google users who receive our emails. We take responsibility for crafting the end of our emails to maintain readability and proper focus. If Google does not correct this issue we will consider using a different email provider and will warn any potential adopters of Google Apps of its signature censorship. Give us back our signatures!

    Rigging searches to favor one position and restrict others betrays a lack of confidence in the view so artificially favored. If facts and logic support the heliocentric model of the solar system, flat earth writings are no threat to the functioning of NASA.

    To Google management I say that those who hung witches in Salem, used the Spanish Inquisition to enforce conformity, participated in McCarthy-era blacklisting thought they were doing good which we - and even partipants - now consider wrong. Don't join this list.
